Opened in 2008...

by Joey Goldman, a principal at Goldman Properties, Joey’s Italian Café was a pioneer in Wynwood; it was the first restaurant to open in the arts district and soon became the neighborhood hangout. Renowned by Food and Wine magazine for having exceptional pizza, Joey’s serves authentic Italian cuisine inspired by the Veneto region of Italy, where Executive Chef Ivo Mazzon hails from. Innovative daily specials, featured on the blackboard, highlight fresh unique ingredients Chef Mazzon masterfully incorporates in his dishes. In perfect complement with the food, Joey’s wine list is carefully curated to provide the best pairings to emphasize the flavor of the dishes.

Like the food, Joey's décor is unassuming yet elegant. White marble tables set against a polished concrete floor, shelves of Italian olive oil lining the wall and an open kitchen, where guests can watch pizza being thrown combine to create an intimate and welcoming ambiance. A beautiful Italian Bisazza mosaic mural at the restaurant’s center brings the décor together. An outdoor garden and terrace enveloped by lush foliage and warm bistro lighting create the perfect al fresco setting.
