So you're hungry for some Italian

I got asked where you can find Johnny's Little Italy here in Reno. The actual name is Johnny's Ristoranté Italiano. It was called Johnny's Little Italy back in the day before his son took over and got high class, but us die hard locals only know it as Little Italy. The food is amazing. I ordered Basil Gnocci which was divine. We each got a Capresé salad which was so sweet and made just right. The tomatoes weren't bitter, they were juicy and firm. There was a generous portion of basil and a great ratio of mozzarella. Their balsamic rocked too. My husband got their Bruschetta which had a portabello mushroom basil one, a shrimp, a sausage, and a classic tomatoe. They were great! He got a shrimp scampi pasta which he loved. For desert he had a Tiramisu and I wanted to steal it. I got amaretto chocoalte cheese cake that tasted like a big hunk of crazy thick chocolate pie. They serve bread too. Half fresh sour dough and half fresh rosemary. I walked away in the happiest place ever. If you want to visit Johnny's here is the info, YOU WON'T BE DISAPOINTED!
