We all chose different dishes to share. Variety is expansive. Melts in your mouth. Service is so spot on. Oh my word... absolutely AMAZING! A++

The meals are divine, the service impeccable. As for atmosphere the choice is up to you! Do you want to discuss what's new, then have a seat at the bar? Looking for a quieter family meal, ask to be seated in the other room. But by far my favorite seat is around back, just ask the staff!

For years, my favorite restaurant in Old Cleveland. From the gnocchi to the potato battered grouper to the long bone veal chop, you can never go wrong. Bo, the proprietor is welcoming, the service very good and the atmosphere is great, both indoors and out.

Went here with two friends. We did not have a reservation but were promptly seated in an adjoining dining room. While it was just us, everything was fine but the room filled quickly and became almost too loud to hear the others at the table. My friend, who had been there before, ordered peppered duck breast which wasn't even on... More

Was at Johnny's on a weeknight. Pretty empty. Server was good. Apps came out quickly. Dinner a little slow, and when it did come it was warm at best. Tasted good, but little disappointed. Had been years since I was last there. Was much better in the past.

We had an amazing dinner here with our family! We were celebrating a few things and had not been back to this location in a while and I forgot how good the food and service is. First, a bit off the beaten path, free valet parking and a huge lot in a church parking lot across the street. The owner... More

Great salad, terrific [pepper steak, my wifev loved her salmon, chocolate mousse was right on classic. Despite an early reservation, restaurant was packed at 6 PM. Priced appropriately... More
