Stopped by for lunch on the shaded patio during a recent visit to the nearby Page Museum. It was very busy; lots of people working in the area visiting for lunch (take-out as well). Good variety on the menu plus pizza lunch specials. Split a Caesar salad plus a simple pizza. Both food and service were good. Offered a $3... More

Menu choice is good, with several dishes to choose. We ate "Johnnie's Combo" pizza, which was good and cheesy. The restaurant decor offers several tables of four, with good views of the street. Service was fast and staff friendly. Pizza bread knots and marinara sauce are offered prior to the meal being served. Parking is available on street or in... More

We stopped at Johnnie's for lunch. They served complimentary garlic bread balls, which were pretty good. I wanted to get pizza, but they only had strange, specialty pizzas available. I ended up getting a bbq chicken pizza. It was OK, but nothing special. My husband got the spaghetti with marinara sauce. I thought it looked pretty bland, but my husband... More

Sidewalk seating back from it all. Good service, good food and welcoming atmosphere. I'd go back if in the neighborhood.

Perfect spot to grab a bite on a day trip to the La Brea Tar Pits/ Page Museum. Service was excellent and so was the food. Our table ordered a little of everything, from an awesome Italian meatball sub, a huge Chinese chicken salad, to a made to order full sized pizza. Its a little small inside, but it is... More

Cute little place. I had such hi hopes based on the reviews I read. The place was busy and the one server/order taker was overwhelmed! He needed help. People were leaving upset because they were not acknoleged. The owners were Asian and looked like they were checked out...not willimg to help. After waiting a long time for out pizza and... More

The only thing I like about this place is the location. The food is very very mediocre, pizza is extremely greasy, the oil just runs down your wrist as you lift the pizza to eat it.

My husband and I had lunch here and were pleasantly surprised by the good food. This is a tiny restaurant that sits on a corner overlooking Santa Monica Boulevard and the Century City shopping mall. Even though Santa Monica is a very busy street, this restaurant sits just above it on the small street running parallel and it is very... More

Every time I go in this place the incredibly rude Arab waiters are more concerned with joking around with the staff and playing with their cell phones than providing decent service. On top of that, the food is very mediocre.
