What a great restaurant. You probably expect good Italian food in Nevada and Johnny's does not disappoint. Great salads and garlic bread to go back for. Just thinking about it and I can remember the aroma!

I never go to Reno without making a trip to Johnny's Little Italy; hands down the best Italian food east of North Beach and west of the East Coast and Chicago. The atmosphere is elegant, food is wonderful; there's a great wine list, lovely atmosphere,...More

The food here is great. The appetizers were all great as were the entrees. The only entree we didn’t like was the pizza. The dessert was not impressive. We tried 3 and all 3 were just ok. We’d recommend the pasta’s, seafood, calamari and polenta.

There is a reason Johnny's has been in business since 1966. This was the first visit for everyone in our foursome, including people who had lived in the area since 1971, and had always wanted to dine at Johnny's Ristorante. We were warmly greeted at...More
