Mediocre food and service

Food was mediocre and over-priced. It took at least 5-7 minutes to get the waiter to come to the table to greet us. Waiter was not very friendly and suggested his own tip on the check. Nothing was horrible, but we will not be coming back.

Family friendly outdoor seating. Service was good. Location was great (central to shopping and people watching). Food was just adequate. We ate three different salads and paid handsomely for them. The goat cheese salad was the best of the bunch.

We ate at Johnnies twice and whilst it is not the most opulent of establishments inside, the food and in particular the pizza's are really really good and all at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend for families wanting good food, good value in no frills surroundings. The service is good too and the waiters are very friendly... More

Went in here for a late lunch as looked ok from the outside. Sat at table quickly but waited a long time before offered drinks even though there were 2 staff standing within 6 feet of us - they spent their whole time talking and made no eye contact. Ordered 2 salads and a spaghetti with meatballs. Chicken salad had... More

Let me start off with saying this...the joint is about as Italian as curry powder. The staff was not enthusiastic, our waiter never smiled until that he saw we gave him a 20% tip. The garlic knots tasted like fake bread and I could barely taste any garlic. They make you pay $14 dollars for a bowl of spaghetti and... More

First off this place was about as italian as little Ceasars! For the price you would think your getting some nice authentic italian food. Let me tell you...that's quite the opposite of what I got. Let start with the marinara sauce. It was terrible and they claimed it was home made. Well if you ask me it was about as... More

Great service with massive portions. Food was very nice and reasonably priced. I recommend the calzones they are just as big as the pizzas but cheaper, it's usually the other way around.

We visited on a Friday night on our last night in LA. This place is phenomenal! ! Quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. I have never felt the need to write a positive review in my life but Johnnies certainly deserves it. The food was fantastic and well worth the price, staff were friendly and service was... More

We stopped for a late meal. The meatball sandwich was great and the stromboli is huge! Good sauce and garlic bread as well.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
