We've been going to John's for the last 30 years. The shrimp parm is the best I've ever had and in 30 years the sauce remains the same!

Stopped in while traveling. Restaurant had several people and families having breakfast. Waitress we had was very nice. Food was horrible. Restaurant and facilities were old but ok but the restrooms were filthy and the floors were sticky.

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant. Would go out of my way to stop here . Portions are very ample. Food tastes as good as it smells. Always food to take home.

We go here for the Red Clam Sauce over linguine. Lots of chopped & fresh clams still in the shell. BIG portion. Just the right amount of garlic in the sauce. There's a reason it's their most popular entrée. Fast & friendly service.

I have been to John's at least 20 time and everything that I have tried has been very good to excellent. Their strombolis and pepperoni pizzas are excellent. I have taken my house guests there on several occasions and everyone left the restaurant having enjoyed their meal. Service is good and the atmosphere is very relaxed. My kind of place.... More

Eating at John's for nearly 30 years. Food is consistent and good. The menu hasn't changed much over the years.

Usually pretty busy, I don't know why. Pizza for takeout is ok but the rest of the menu is not that appetizing.
