Voted Best Central Avenue Dining in 2009 by Tampa Bay Magazine, JoJo's in Cittá Restaurant dishes up a palate-pleasing menu of piping-hot pizzas and savory pastas. Launch your edible expedition with a glass of Coppola shiraz, with hints of plum and raspberry ($6.50); and a plate of shrimp scampi Milaro, cooked with white wine, fresh garlic, and olive oil, crowned with bread crumbs, and baked to a golden brown ($7.95). Molar-pleasing entrees include the St. Pete Beach pizza ($11.95)—blanketed in pesto sauce and topped with pillows of chicken, roasted peppers, and artichokes—and the penne alla vodka ($13.95), where inebriated pasta challenges ham to a garlic-fueled game of Trivial Pursuit in a creamy tomato sauce. Munch indoors or nibble a cannoli ($4.95) al fresco in the Italian eatery's outdoor dining area.

- The wait staff was very attentive, the decor is beautiful and the food was to die for. Freshly baked bread alone made the trip worth it. – ewest17023, Citysearch
