Had dinner with a large group. Thought it was going to be a pub place. Has nice pub type feel but food all was very well presented, creative and good. Pasta special was great as were truffle fries and calamari.

Dinner for two on a college visit weekend. Menu is extensive and wait staff is attentive. Try the fried clam pasta--amazing! And the desserts are wonderful. Dinner for two with appetizer, entree, wine and dessert was $35 per person before tip.

We eat at Johnny's regularly. They have a varied menu, and the food is consistently good. Good service. It can be crowded, but that's a good sign. And the prices are quite reasonable.
