The food and service are just as good as any Johnny Carino's we've eaten at back home. We really enjoyed our meal and the service was great. This was a welcome taste of home.

This is very average Italian American food, with the cheapest ingredients (e.g. definitely not mozarella on the pizzas but some undefined industrial cheese), all heavy and fairly tasteless.
The staff was very nice though, and attentive to the children as well as the adults, but I will definitely never return.

Visited for lunch with my family of four. Splendid location by the sea and well laid our Restaurant. The food was delicious and portions were big! The House salad (free refills) was very good to begin with. The garlic bread accompanied by toasted garlic bits in olive oil was so good we could have eaten only that the whole day! The baked stuffed mushrooms is something that would feature as a regular in all my future visits....soooooooo yummy...it is to die for! Their home made 'Johnny's Combo' featuring Lasagna, Chicken Pamigiana and Sphagetti, was sumptuous and delicious! The pasta was a bit of a let down, as it tasted like nothing but bland tomato puree, despite requesting for it to be spiced up. Again, their Pizza Margherita was a damp squib with a dry base that had hardly any pizza sauce, making it dry and unpalatable for my daughter who craves Pizzas.

Service was good and quick, though you need to call the waiters and waitresses a couple of times to get their attention from filling up ice in the ice dispensers and doing other chores that normally the Kitchen support staff should be doing. Waiters and Waitresses are meant to wait upon the guests and take care of them. That is probably the only complaint I have. Prices are expectedly upmarket for the brand image, quality and quantity. I will go again....you can be sure!
