My husband and I had lunch here and were pleasantly surprised by the good food. This is a tiny restaurant that sits on a corner overlooking Santa Monica Boulevard and the Century City shopping mall. Even though Santa Monica is a very busy street, this restaurant sits just above it on the small street running parallel and it is very quiet and pleasant. There are about 8 small tables inside and several nice tables where you can sit outside. We ordered the $9 lunch special that included our choice of salad, small pizza and a soft drink. To our surprise, the waitress brought over a basket of delicious hot garlic rolls with a pasta dipping sauce to start. Our salads were very good and the barbecue chicken pizzas we had were wonderful, though there was so much food, so we could only eat half. Our drinks were refilled multiple times and the service was friendly and welcoming. The pizzas we saw going to other tables looked great. I will definitely go back to Johnnie's and recommend it to other people.
