Restaurant Review: Joey Pepperoni Pizzeria

Published on July 12, 2009

Boyet and I initially planned to go to Greenbelt because we have tried almost all of the restaurants in Robinson’s Place. But since the weather is so unpredictable, we decided to go to the more accessible RP. After attending mass and our Ice Age 3 movie date, we looked for a place to have our late lunch. I already had Mc Donald’s Cheeseburger Deluxe and Twister Fries while Boyet had cheeseburger and fries while watching the movie. We were both full but skipping a food trip is a mortal sin on our weekend dates. The next problem was looking for a place to eat. It was a good thing that we spotted Joey Pepperoni Pizzeria. Boyet was craving for soups so we compared the menu of JPP versus its neighboring restaurant. I was craving for pasta so we opted to try out JPP.

There was a big sign in front of JPP saying that all their pizzas have a 50% discount. We didn’t pay enough attention to it thinking that the offer is only for a specific time only.

Boyet picked Minestrone alla Milanese. It’s a tomato-based soup served with carrots, potatoes, celeries, zucchinis, ground beef and strips of bacon. We were so surprised at how big the serving was. I didn’t like it because it was a little too sour for me. But Boyet did and finished the plate.

We both chose Carbonara because it’s been a while since the last time we had cream-based pasta together. They let us choose the pasta for the carbonara so I asked for penne. I have high taste for carbonara. I don’t like it neither dry nor too creamy.


Joey Pepperoni’s carbonara is light and I loved the fact that I could eat it until the last bite without getting fed up.

I took the liberty in choosing Pizza Messicana. The menu says, “Beef toppings, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, ground beef, bacon and Mexican seasoning”. Boyet didn’t like it as much as I did because of the Mexican seasoning which was on the spicy side. I loved how the crisp of the pizza crust made me savor the spicy seasoning and how it gave way to all the flavors of the toppings.

We were so surprised when we only paid Php337.50. It looks like we were able to avail of the 50% discount for the pizza. Apparently, the 50% off on pizzas is from 2PM-6PM.

I also appreciated how mindful the whole staff was with the needs of their customers. We didn’t have to ask for water because somebody was refilling it every now and then. Unlike with other restaurants wherein you have to ask for a Divine intervention before the service water gets into your table.
