My husband and I like this place. If one of more private tables w/ curtains is available we usually request it, it feels romantic. The bread is especially good. My favorite is chicken marsala, my husband usually gets chicken parm. but their steak is really good too. I'm not a big fan of their recent remodel (bar now much bigger)... More

Slow to sit. Noone was there and. We waited 5 min to be acknowledged and seated. I ordered the johnny s combo. Enjoyed the lasagna and the parmesan chicken. Spaghetti was fair. Wife ordered the fettuccine. Added the chicken. Not worth the upcharge. Thin slices. But she did enjoy the pasta. Service was friendly and attentive. Drinks got a little... More

Highly recommend! Husband and I have been coming here for a few years now and have never had a bad experience. Just a fun, "at home", friendly, very professional establishment. Along with friends and family, husband and I have never had a meal that we did not completely enjoy. We have always come for dinner only. Prices are very reasonable.

I really like Italian food and when I am in the mood for it, I go to Johnny carino's. Even though I am lactose intolerant, I love cheese and I will get the homemade pizza, Italian nachos, lasagna, chicken wings, etc. I have not had anything from there that I didn't like. And my favorite dessert is tiramisu and it's... More

We were traveling and after 500+ miles, we unexpectedly had a great dinner while being entertained by a fabulous server named Gregorio! The Lasagna is terrific and fills you way up! And the Italian Chocolate Cake was superb!
