Excellent Italian food and service in an upscale restaurant in a questionable neigh borough

This is a classic Cleveland upscale, and pricey, restaurant which has been an institution for several decades. The location is discouraging but the inside is elegant and comfortable. The food from pastas to steaks to fish is not very creative but the ingredients are fresh and of first quality... read more

Johnny's has become my go to place to take clients to dinner in Cleveland. Everyone raves about the food from the banana peppers stuffed with veal, the steaks you cut with butter knives, through to the bananas foster. You will find something you love on the menu. To top it off, our server Ricky paced the meal and added to... More

I love Johnny's. I love the ambiance and I love the food. If you like veal, Johnny's is the place to go. They menu features multiple veal dishes, and there is always a special or two. Choosing which to order is challenging because they all sound so good, and they all are so good. Also try the stuffed calamari--it is... More

Such an unassuming place but what an oasis of yummy food and good service. We hadn't been there in a long time, but upon this visit, I know we'll be back soon and often. It's in an old house in a working class neighborhood, but you walk into a fabulous white table cloth restaurant. The food is delicious.

This is a classic Cleveland upscale, and pricey, restaurant which has been an institution for several decades. The location is discouraging but the inside is elegant and comfortable. The food from pastas to steaks to fish is not very creative but the ingredients are fresh and of first quality available. The wine list is superb and the service impeccable.

My family and I wanted to experience authentic old world Italian cuisine so we tried Johnny's. It was an experience not worth having. The service was great but the female manager really left me with a bad taste in my mouth. She was unfriendly and short. Overall I could have had a better experience if we went to Pizza Hut... More

Try the Italian feast. Great food & bar. Salads are fresh and crisp. Ignore the neighborhood. Seafood has always been moist and tasty.
