We went here without a reservation about 9:00pm and were shown to a quiet table. Service was great, not rushed and Kat, our server, was very knowledgeable about specials as well as all other menu items. I started with the minestrone which was delicious then had the shrimp risotto with asparagus (so did another of our party) which had lots... More

We dined on a Tuesday evening. It was a quiet night at the restaurant. We had a reservation and were seated quickly by the window. There was a view of greenery across the road, the server came over quickly to take our drink orders. The food was very good! I ordered an eggplant dish. It was delicious! It came with... More

Mat was our server. Our dinner was superb. Great suggestions and great service. My friend Roger who flu in from Florida was surprised by the quality of the food. Amazing. Thank you for making this evening a very special one. My phone was dead and Mat provided me with a charger. This is customer care. I want to personally thank... More

We have been going to Johnny's for years. The service is always top notch! We take Safari Club guests, we go on our own with family and friends and it is close to home. The best thing is having your salad on a cold plate and your food is hot until you are done eating it. We never leave with... More

Johnny's had a full parking lot on Thursday at 5:30pm so we thought it must be good. It was, but not great. Wine selection of Itanian wines was limited - no Classico Chianti by the glass. Service was good. Seafood ravioli wasn't. You could not taste the seafood with all the heave cheese and cream sauce. The restaurant has a... More

This was our second time to Johnny's and we were not disappointed. Our wait staff were attentive and prompt. Both dinner and dessert exceeded our expectation. I love Tiramisu and I've found that not everyone can make a great one. It was absolutely packed when we arrived so reservations are a must. We live in the Tahoe area and dinner... More

Johnny's is a family-run restaurant with an upscale environment. We love to go there. It's nice to have something nice on the west side of town. We're not very creative, as we get the same thing every time we go there. I love their cheese ravioli. It is in a pink sauce that I just can't get enough of. We... More

Johnny's never disappoints. Linguine and clams was excellent. My wife had the cannelloni and loved it. MIL had the sausage and polenta which she enjoyed. Service was a little slow. Several tables around us arrived later but received their orders first. Johnny's remains a great choice for Italian food in Reno.
