Always a family favorite for the food. I have been going to Joe & Mimma's Italian Pizza since 1999 and not once have I or the Family experienced anything short of excellence. Great food, reasonable prices, and a fantastic community of guests.

Really the title says it all. Perhaps something in the past with the original owners but now the only this good is the servers' memory of how it used to be. Egg plant parm, I was left with yolk on my face. Plain flavorless and...More
