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

My parents live down the street and love Johnnys. Even if they had to travel to eat here they would. When we travel to Clearwater we always eat at Johnnys a couple times. Great authentic Italian food with a real feel of being in Italy.

We went here first time for my birthday on the recommendation of a friend. It was delicious. It was a homey atmosphere. I had the classic lasagna and my husband veal Parmesan. They were both delicious. Good portions. We walked away full. They do have lunch menu for about $6.96 a plate.

The portions are large, enough for two people, pizza is good and they have Gluten Free Items. Good value and good food. Wine list was ok for an inexpensive dinner.

We frequent Johnny's once in a while when with friends, it's usually a good place to meet, eat and have a few cocktails. We visited this week with friends and found the food to be just as good as we remembered, the dishes are large and made well. We ordered drinks to go around, most were full of ice and... More
