Good Food and Service

Johnny's lived up to its previous reviews. It is a nice atmosphere, good, friendly staff and delicious food. Our meal was served timely and hot. We would go back. Be sure to make a reservation, especially on the weekends.

Friendly bartenders for pre-dinner cocktails, nice ambiance, excellent servers, wonderful food, and very reasonable prices. We made a return visit because of a nice experience a year ago and will certainly make it a three peat when visiting relatives again next year. There is a reason this restaurant has been successful for so many years. You can't go wrong at... More

This place has the best service and never disappoints. Order the plant a appetizer and it is fabulous. Picada is grand! The salmon delicious! The salad is simple but elegant. And the Florentine dessert is divine!

Our first experience in 2013 was outstanding. In 2014 only very good, but this 2015 visit was again outstanding. Excellent menu and service was very good, not outstanding, but the food was so wonderful made up for fast, but not very friendly waiter. Still Very Highly Recommended.

Being from a Maternal Northern Italian background, the Food was very much to my liking and true to the style of Northern Italy and many of the Old Time San Francisco Restaurants in North Beach. A very pleasing decor, very clean throughout and friendly staff.

The food here was very good and had a nice romantic atmosphere. Somewhere where you could dress up to go to or remain casual. Server was friendly. No reservations are required. I really loved the salad that came with the meal...good, simple dressing with blue cheese crumbles on top of greens. Good vegetarian options and meat options.

This was recommended by friends and we were really pleased. The food was very interesting and delicious. The specials were tops. The standards were available as well though we had to take the sea bass special and the lobster lasanga. You won't be dissapointed.

Johnny's is one of my favorite restaurants in Reno and the food is consistently good and the service is great. I'm probably considered a regular and they recognize my voice when I call for a reservation and already have my drink on the way by the time I sit down. Johnny's is an institution in Reno and in my opinion,... More

This restaurant has been around for a long time with many local loyal patrons, which means they are doing a lot of things right! We haven't dined here in many years but our friends suggested it for our 25th wedding anniversary dinner. First, let me say that they never recognized our anniversary even though they were told when the reservation... More
