Johnny's Ristorante Italiano
Only a handful of restaurants earn the right to look back over decades, rather than years or months. Johnny’s Ristorante Italiano traces its roots to 1966 when founders Johnny and Mary Cassinari embarked on their mission to serve the very finest, traditional pastas, sauces and Italian cuisine made from the freshest, hand-selected ingredients. Authentic charm, a relaxing ambiance and signature specialties such as, Parmesan Crusted Petrale Sole, Linguine with Shrimp & Asparagus in a Saffron Cream Sauce and Osso Buco have made Johnny’s an enduring local favorite for occasions made special with uncommon quality and service.
An extensive selection of wines from exceptional domestic and foreign vineyards in concert with house-made desserts round out your experience of fine dining that is epitomized by every visit to Johnny’s Ristoriante Italiano.
Owner and second-generation proprietor, Louis Cassinari, continues to polish the gem cut by his parents and honors their legacy with enduring hospitality and continued dedication to the highest standards.
