Normally we don't eat at chain restaurants, but one kid was dying for pizza so we figured at least we could get some other dishes here, as well. Our waiter pretty much ignored us during and after our dinner. When we were almost done he stopped by for the first time to ask how everything was. When I couldn't find... More

During our recent stay in Santa Monica, we were after some nice italian food. We came across Johnnie's and were not disappointed. In fact, it was so good, we returned again before our departure. They have an extensive menu of pizza and pasta but you can also get a schnitzel, soup and salads. The lasagne was very nice and a... More

4 of us ate here last week. I ordered a pasta dish, my husband had chicken wings (he did enjoy them) and the other couple split a pizza. They gave us pizza knots and marinara sauce for free and they were stale and the sauce tasteless. My pasta dish was boring and I think it is really hard to make... More

I recently had lunch here on a visit to Santa Monica. They served me the best Italian steak and cheese sandwich I have EVER anywhere except the east coast. Service was excellent, price was reasonable and I recommend it without hesitation.

We were there on a TUES. IN JULY, and had the WORST SERVICE AND FOOD EVER. I tried to order a pizza with half & half and they acted like I was the most difficult customer ever! Instead I got a calzone that was suppose to be cheese, mushrooms and pepperoni. What I got was about a pound of CHEESE... More

This is one of the worst places I have ever been to. Pizza is large but has no taste at all. Service is very basic, you get served but that s it. Interior is old, cheap and not clean. It was cold inside. I will never ever go again and will advice everybody NOT TO GO THERE. There are much... More

The service was fair. The cazones & pasta were excellent. We loved the warm bread with marina sauce. Great location!

Went here for dinner recently as I have been here a number of times before and enjoyed it. Didn't disappoint again this time. Had some large pizza with everything on it which we didn't have to wait long for. Service was great drinks topped up regularly. Good atmosphere outside doing some "people watching" on the promenade, overall another excellent large... More

Wandering around the 3rd Street Promenade with teenagers in the evening, they were getting hungry ... and hungrier. There is probably hundreds of other better places to choose to eat, but this was close by our parking, it was obviously open and relatively empty, and you can never go wrong with pizza and teenagers ... so in we went. It... More

We enjoyed our pizza. We also received complementary bread ball things to dip in sauce, which were tasty. This is not a super fancy place (we went to the one at the 3rd Street Promenade) but we enjoyed our visit. Reasonable prices, and a variety of options on the menu.
