Stop in for some Italian food!

Great Italian food. I've been here so many times and haven't had a chance to review it yet. The bread they serve is AMAZING. I could just eat that for dinner! I also enjoy the clam chowder. The pizza is delicious and the pasta is the same. Wish I lived closer!

Great Italian food, super service, a bit noisy ambiance, but no complaints, really. Their bread is a different Italian--- reformulated since the water in FL has no minerals. We had eggplant parm & veal parm, both of which we recommend. All is served fresh & hot. Great service. Don't be dismayed by the long line...they know how to process folks... More

Lots of standard and inventive Italian meal choices for pastas or meats with pasta. Small but satisfying salad and copious loafs of garlic bread accompany selections. Dessert? Mini Cannoli's a must. Lunch served until 3:30 so take advantage of lower price then and specials. SaVVY STAFF.

Good food, good service, and nice atmosphere that is Johnny's Italian Restaurant. I recently had lunch there. I was with a party from work about 30 people. We got to the restaurant a little early for lunch 11am. They were expecting us and got seated quickly. Our waitress promptly took our drink orders. Came back with our drinks took our... More

Johnny's has classic Italian dishes in a nice atmosphere. I got the chicken Parmesan and wasn't disappointed. When the pasta that came out on the side didn't come out the way I wanted, it wasn't a big deal but the waiter noticed and apologized, he along with all of the staff was very nice. The bread and olive, like at... More

The food is pretty good, and certainly better than the Italian chains. What really sets this place apart is the atmosphere and customer service. The staff usually bends over backwards to accommodate you, although there is often a wait of 10 to 20 minutes for a table. This is because it is popular for good food at a reasonable price.... More

Everyone is talking about this place. Huge portions, this is true, but food is mediocre at best. Service is excellent, but they do not take reservations and you have to stand outside waiting for a table. When I have to wait 60 mins. for a table and the food is only ok, I'm not going back. To crowded to get... More
