The restaurant has a 50’s diner decor with big screen televisions to ensure that dad and the boys doesn’t miss the big game during dinner. When our family went to Johnny’s for lunch earlier this month, the kids felt right at home in a relaxed environment. The friendly staff helped our family to order the perfect pizza and sides so that everyone in our family had an enjoyable dining experience.

We started our meal by sharing a caesar salad. Our kids love caesar salad, and it was the croutons that made the salad to unique. They were seasoned with a “secret” seasoning and perfectly baked. We don’t know what their secret is…but we loved them!

While the kids negotiated who would get the last crouton from the salad, my husband, and I indulged in our favorite Italian appetizer – cheese sticks. There is nothing better than melted cheese inside of a fried breaded crust but what I loved about Johnny’s was that they gave us a large enough serving so everyone in our family to get more than one.

For our pizza, we shared the “true Sicilian” Andolini pizza. The pizza came topped with homemade meatballs, genoa salami, sweet Italian sausage, herbs, mozzarella and tomato sauce. The meatballs is what made this pizza one of the best Sicilian pizzas I’ve had in Orange County. It was made with the perfect amount of spices boasting with bold Italian flavors with every bite.

We paired the pizza with a side of their pasta and chicken parmesan that was delicious. Finally, we ended our lunch with cinnamon garlic knots. The sweet dessert was the perfect ending to our dining experience at Johnny’s and left us eager to return for more.
