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.

Always consistent. Calmari portion could stand a few more pieces, but fresh and crispy. Sauce has stayed the same for years and is a tasty recipe. Pretty good wine list. A good choice if you don't want to pop for La Famiglia.

We held a family birthday celebreation with 35 adults and 7 little children. What a wonderful experience! Staff goes all out, service is fabulous, food is THE BEST! Owner/Chef, Louis, knows how to do it right. Our family celebrations are held there because it is such an outstanding restaurant.

I have been here many times. The food is excellent. The warm bread always calls for a refill. A Reno icon visited by many celebrates in the early days the Resturant is an excellent couples place to visit with friends for hours! Friday nights require a reservation! Their specialty is the sole piccata. But truly anything you order will not... More

We are new to Reno and checking out a lot of restaurants. Johnny's is up there with the best we've discovered - we've been back 3 times. The food is tasty, plentiful and a good value. The atmosphere is old world comfortable and the service has always been warm and friendly. We've found the egg plant parmesan to be particularly... More
