After making 5:00 pm reservations well in advance, when we arrived we were asked if we would switch to outside. I said that since it was a very hot day and I reserved inside dining I'd prefer to stay inside. The hostess said that would...be ok and after taking our drink orders a bus pulled up and unloaded about 60 noisy people. filling the restaurant. As if this wasn't bad enough, I ordered veal marsala and asked if I could have red sauce on my side pasta. When the meal arrived, red sauce had been dumped on top of the veal marsala with the pasta under the veal . When I pointed this out to the waitress , she said that's what I ordered even though I have placed the same order at numerous Italian restaurants and never had a problem. I didn't send the meal back and I tipped 20 percent but I could never recommend this restaurant and won't be returning.More

We had had some lackluster culinary experiences so our expectations weren't that high when we picked here to eat. However, we were definitely pleasantly surprised. The food was spectacular and the service was friendly and quick. We specifically noted the delicious unique salad dressing used...on their house salad. We were told that it was a custom made dressing and was for sale if we were interested so of course we left with a bottle. If you are in the mood for some delicious Italian food, you definitely need to stop to eat here. Simply delightful... Pictured below...veal marsala, shrimp Alfredo and veal ParmigianoMore

Terrible service tonight. Never heard the specials, ordered a bottle of wine that was literally hot when we poured it, appetizer plates never cleared from our tiny table for two, had to ask for water, dinner plates plopped in front of us, waitress never came...back to check if dinner was ok....TERRIBLE. Pasta served with the chicken dishes was cold. Won’t be back, and seeing Joey was part of our annual trip to Wildwood Crest. So very disappointed.More

Restaurant is a true family run Italian restaurant. I had a veal dish which was good but veal portions were skimpy. My friend had the chicken parm which not only was excellent but it also was a decent portion. Service was good, server was friendly....My only two real negatives was that the menu had all the prices blacked out and second I asked for whole wheat pasta and when presented with the check that was a $4.00 up charge that I was not informed of when ordering. I realize restaurants are dealing with constant increases for food and sometimes it cannot be absorbed but at the very least white out your prices and pencil in the current price. Before ordering the waitress did present me with a current price list when I inquired. All in all it was still a pleasant dining experience.More

If you want delicious authentic Italian food plus entertainment this is it! Staff is friendly and professional. Free Parking a major plus and beautiful outdoor dining! Owner walks around to make sure everyone is happy. AND, if you love to listen to music while you're...eating dinner, Joey, the owner himself goes back in time and performs songs of Sinatra, Dean Martin and more! There is also other talented singers there every weekend! Besides a huge menu of Italian specialties there are daily specials, great appetizers, and Joey who is an amazing chef makes his own meatballs! We go there with all our friends every weekend because it is our "happy place." If you're here on vacation or live in the area it's a must!More

Great night at Joey M’s La Piazza. Dinner special Chilean Sea Bass was delicious as was all of the other meals we ordered. Entertainment is fantastic. We are never disappointed going there. The staff is very accommodating. We always request Pasquale to be our waiter....I would highly recommend Joey M’s when you visit Wildwood.More

I went to JoeyM's LaPiazza on a recommendation and it superseded my expectations!! The service staff was professional and worked quickly. The menu was excellent and the entertainment made me feel like I was in Las Vegas. If you're in Cape May County get to...Wildwood and treat yourself and family to a real night out.More

From the oversized bacon wrapped scallops and fried risotto rounds for our appetizers, to our Daily Specials of Mango-Seasoned Salmon; Ravioli; Pork/Eggplant Parmesan, everything was outstanding. Service as well. Food was not "rushed" meaning, adequate time between courses. Outdoor Dining, good atmosphere. We WILL return!

I am sad to give such a terrible review on this place. From the moment we got seated it was a disaster. We thought the food was fantastic even though we waited forever to get it. They need major changes! The owner sat at a...table inside most of the night not even checking on how things were running. The hostess was very nice but never moved from her station to see what was going on. The waitress was terrible. I know it was busy but we had to ask for bread, silverware, salt and pepper... should I go on.More

Very good meal. The servers and busboys were running to keep up the service. We had a very pleasant server. Enjoyed listening to Kenney Jeremiah.
