Lake Minnetonka west of Minneapolis, MN is generally starved of good eating establishments. Things are looking up. Joey Nova's Pizzeria & Delicatessen opened up a week ago and it is top notch. The owner's of the Hazellwood Grill & Pub opened this place at the shopping center in Tonka Bay on County Road 19. Hazellwood started out with really good personal pizza and then they dropped it from the menu much to my chagrin. The independent pizza restaurant in the shopping center, Mike's Pizza Platter had closed. That left us with chain pizza in the area.
Joey Nova's has pizza, grilled sandwiches, torpedo sandwiches and take out salads and other food. There is sit down seating as well. We had the grilled sandwiches last week in the restaurant and this week we tried a take out Chipotle chicken pizza. We were satisfied both times. The only problem is the place is swamped and it took over an hour to get my pizza. Either it will settle down or they will get better organized.
