Good Service. Good Food. Nothing here is terrific. Everything seems to be "good." Its worth a try. Just don't expect gourmet excellence or home-cooking and you'll likely be happy.

We went to dinner on Saturday night and had a lovely time. Nick is an amazing server and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I highly recommend ordering the garlic bread. I had the Veal with Mushrooms and it was absolutely delightful.

The service is excellent but the food is just OK. I have had better Italian food at less expensive places.

A great meal - a bottle of Proseco, a tasty Bruschetta sampling, salmon, stuffed pork chop and tiramisu. And Nick, our server, was excellent. The restaurant was full, but Johnny's staff handled it all!
