Decent Italian food in Hamlin PA

John's is a decent Italian food restaurant. The prices are fair and the portions too big. Very family feel to it. Can not go wrong with basic dishes. Worth a try.

The owners (brother and sister) are friendly, pleasant and accommodating people. The food they prepare and serve is as close as you can get to "made in Italy." Pasta is cooked, as it should be, "al dente" which means literally "to the tooth." You can feel a very slight resistance when biting down on the pasta. The chef's tomato sauce... More

Disgusting! How is this place still in business? The worst Italian food. The sauce is nasty. Salad dressings served in side cups, really? In a sit down restaurant?

We've been eating here for 29 years and the food has been consistent every time, to the point that my husband keeps ordering veal cutlet paramagino. The portions are huge and the food is very good. Service is great. It's usually very busy in the summer.

Dear John's - I'm sorry to break-up with you this way, after so many long & loyal years. After eight years of commitment you've proven to me that I cared for you a lot more than you cared for me. At first it was great food, great drinks and great company. We've been in each other's company for many Halloweens'... More

Server was very lovely and efficient. Best advise: Regular drinks are $2.25 for what must be at least 24 oz and we got free refills. However if you ask for a drink with a lid for a child they get an 8oz cup and they charge for the refill. Take a soppy cup!!! Also kids chicken and fries were saturated... More

Nice place up in the mountains. Good Italian food. We went for lunch and I had the chicken parm. Of course I had to bring home half of it. The portions were large. My date had the veal parm hoagie which was also good. Please was clean and nice. Not very busy for lunch but it was a holiday and... More

Place was kind of dirty. Food was just ok what I had. What my husband had he couldn't even eat. Wouldn't recommend this place.
