Very Nice Dessert ("Florentine Cup")

Pretty good, primarily SOUTHERN Italian. Dishes with Red sauce and stronger flavors (sausage, etc.) seem to be a bit more successful than Lighter "Florentine-like" items and cream-sauced items. Wines seem slightly overpriced (maybe some formula like "2x retail + $15", or "3x retail"...). From 4th... read more

Johnnies has been in this location more than 50 years. The staff have been here forever. Maybe because they get a free meal at the end if their shift? It would be worth it. Never a disappointing meal or service. Fabulous!

We live in Reno and Johnny's is probably our favorite upper-class restaurant. If you want good Italian food and nice ambiance, this is the place to go. You will need to make reservations as they are usually packed.

Some friends/family of mine love to go to Johnny's for special/any occasions. It has been in Reno a long time and has a great reputation for a reason. Food is excellent and deserves its reputation.

A classic Reno restaurant. Impeccable service, upscale interior decorated with historical photos. Right on the river with a lovely view. All my favorite dishes, plus many I haven't ever had before. Amazing desserts. A great place to spend an evening.

One of the best garlic bread that I have ever tasted. My wife loved the fetuccini alfredo. The spicy sausage soup was also pretty good. Service was great, the rest of the food was just ok. A little pricey and you may want to make a reservation.
