While visiting friends in Reno, they recommended this restaurant. The atmosphere is upscale and relaxing with nice views. A very good menu selection of Italian dishes. Our group tried a variety of dishes including the sole, chicken parm, veal, pasta and shrimp. Everyone was more than satisfied. Entree portions are generous, and include soup or salad, plus roasted vegetables. Service... More

What a treat, after traveling across the US, thanks to Tripadvisor, finding this (non fast food) restaurant! We were pleasantly surprised😊, with many mouth watering options, we enjoyed a wonderful meal, topped off with a special bottle of our favorite wine! A perfect place to indulge yourself, and for us the way to to end a perfect trip!

We went with friends to this restaurant. The staff had great customer service and the food was good. I didn't see a kids menu and had some difficulty reading some of the menu items. We had a great time and will be back next visit.

We used to live in Reno and Johnny's was always our favorite go-to restaurant. We dined there at least once a month. We have been gone for 10 years, but whenever we are in town we make it a point to eat there at least once. The food and service are wonderful and the staff is great.

Had an early dinner, party of four. The bruschetta was great, my veal piccata was very good and the dessert was phenomenal. Wish I could recall the name. A Carmelized brittle-like cup with wonderful vanilla bean ice cream, fresh strawberries, some sort of whipped cream and a balsamic drizzle. I do it no justice. Must try. Best of all was... More

Johnny's deserves its excellent reputation for fine northern Italian dining. Three of us arrived at 5:15, just after opening, and for some reason service was slow on wine and bread for starters. Spouse had gnocchi pasta (excellent), and my veal was as tender as you could wish for. Flying saucer-shaped wine glasses were weird and made it impractical to swirl... More

I was here almost 3 years ago when I was on business so I figured I would stop by again when I was in town. If I said I was disappointed, that would be an understatement. I've NEVER been asked to sit in the lounge when I came alone although they INSISTED this time. I noticed that the menu had... More

We have eaten their many, many times over the last 10 years and its always on the agenda when we have out of town guests. Their food is just outstanding. The pasta is cooked to perfection, the veal is fresh and they have a large menu. You will find something that you love to eat. With so many great choices... More
