We found Johnny Farina on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a shot based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! The Pizza was awesome, we ordered the Quatro Stagioni along with a fried calamari appetizer. The calamari was tender and delicious.

My wife and I chose Johnny Farina’s even though the reviews were mixed. I must say that the service was very good but the food was average at best, really not top notch Italian. It’s also extremely noisy, it’s difficult to carry on a normal...More
