Family and I love great Italian food and Johnny's (not Johnnie's) is among the top 3 great Italian restaurants in all of the Tampa Bay area IMO. Never had a guest disappointed in a meal -- or myself or family, too. We normally don't get their pizza (for which they are famous), but instead get some of their great Italian... More

Johnny's was recommended to me by my girlfriend who really seemed to love it. As always, I'm generally skeptical about any new restaurant I go to simply because I'm uncertain about how I'll enjoy the food. Anyway, when I took my first bite out of their fried grouper fish, I was instantly "taken" by the quality. Service is mostly prompt... More

During the busy holiday we wanted to book a large family dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Even though they were booked almost full and on short notice they were able to accommodate our group of 15 people. Our meal was delicious and our server Marcia did an excellent job of managing all our food and drink orders including... More

We go there and get the several different entrees, none of which have been anything but DELICIOUS. Always hot and fresh, even when we get it to go! Only thing I would change is the size of glasses the soda comes in. They are a little small which could be on purpose to keep the server at the table often... More

We had a company Christmas party. Our server, Marcia, was wonderful and took great care of our group. The food was excellent and I especially liked the calamari. We will be back for sure.

After looking at their delicious menu selections I chose the Italian and Marcia gave me 3 choices and I asked her opinion and she suggested the "Johnny Bread". OMG was it GREAT! Had... More

Plebeians and gentry gather here for the best in traditional Italian cooking. Pizza is a sure choice to please everyone but the entrees are savory: ample proportions, well-plated and served attentively. Johnny's is a well-known restaurant to locals and snow-birds for over 30 years. It even has its own loyalty card for $20 for life which entitles you to 20%... More

DH &I had been meaning to go to this restaurant for some time now and finally chose a Monday night for our dinner. Had the early bird special which was certainly an adequate portion and sooooooooooo delicious. I had chicken marsala and it was delicious, nice and thin and very tender. DH had chicken parm which was declared good. (... More

My food had bugs and no wonder! The manager is filthy and has his filthy beard near the food or gets his filthy beard's bacteria and viruses over our food, when he carries the food dishes. I thought it was UNLAWFUL and FORBIDDEN by Health Laws to have employees who work near or with the food have facial hair. I... More
