We respect our roots. Customers enjoy classic dishes and attentive service in a comfortable space with modern décor. Adaptation is also important. Cascone family members young and old pay attention to contemporary tastes and participate in discussions to balance the restaurant's traditions with fresh ideas.

Dining at any of our restaurants is a homecoming of sorts where guests can relax, enjoy each other's company, and celebrate life's big moments and small rituals. That communal approach is an extension of what we value as a business; tradition matters; family is important; serve your community.

Johnny’s was an excellent venue for our dining club. They effortlessly accommodated our group of 19. Thanks, Cascone’s for great food, service and atmosphere.

We came for my girlfriends birthday dinner, I called ahead to make a reservation and speak to the manager about pre-ordering some wine for our table. When we arrived the wine was ready, delicious, and the food came shortly after. A wonderful meal, that gave plenty of leftovers, and at a fairly reasonable price. Essy, the manager, who helped us was fantastic, as well as our waitress. 10/10!

Mothers day -evening. Crowded - small wait for reservation to sit all 12 in group. The process of order beverage, food etc., delivery of food and check was a bit slow (2 hours +) but appeared to be adequately staffed even for Mother's day crowd. When food arrived, one of 12 orders was not delivered and needed a prompt to get service etc.

The only reason I did not give outstanding was my husbands veal parmesan was tough. Other than that it was fantastic.

We went to Johnny Cascade's on Mother's Day and had a reservation using Open Table. When we arrived, our table was ready, service was amazing, food was great and we were not rushed at all. I was extremely pleased with our experience.

Very good bread, olive oil dipping sauce, olive giardiniera bowl and cannelloni. Stuffed Artichoke appetizer not so much. Service just ok... had to ask to order drinks and food.

We had a party of 5 on Mother's Day. We weren't seated in the main restaurant area, but in an area used for large group events. It was a large room where they had put large tables, probably used for private parties. No atmosphere what so ever. Too many small children running around and making noise. It's a good thing that the food was good.

We've been to JC many times. It was mother's day so packed house. Wait staff slow to take dirty dishes from our table. Had the lemon chicken and fettuccini as it was pretty bland... just not a lot of flavor.

Food and waitress were amazing. However, reservation was not recognized. We were put on the walk in list. Even showed the confirmation number. Still waited an hour. Disappointed as others in our party were on a schedule as they had a 2 hour drive home.

This is our favorite Italian Restaurant. The food and service is consistently very good. It is not an inexpensive place to dine but we think it is an excellent value. Portion sizes are very generous and quality is never compromised. We never feel like we have overspent on our meal.

Early Mother’s Day. We had 3 generations at the table with lots of special needs and Richard handled every request with perfection. Never made us feel like we were difficult at all. In fact he acted like it was his pleasure to meet every request. He was fun and professional. Fabulous dinner thanks to his incredible attention.

Overall the food was a hit for my wife (seafood pasta) and a massive failure on my part. The red sauce was so bland I think it came directly from a can of tomato sauce. Weren't impressed with the interior, just didn't feel right.

Food was great, except the salad and that could just be from our waiter who was very very slow and very short. Not the friendliest guy for sure. Noise level was loud because they sat people on top of each other when the place wasn’t that busy to start with.

This was a disappointing outing for us. The service was slow, my food order was delivered incorrectly and the bill for food/drink was a little too expensive for the quality provided. On a positive note, the waitress worked very hard but she was over-extended. The calamari we ordered was very good.....not so much for the other food we were served. We’ll be coming back based on the quality we’ve received during other visits and we chalk up this experience to it being an off-night for the restaurant.

I'm not sure if it was a bad night or not, but the service was pretty bad, the other customers were rude, and the quality of the food wasn't at the level it has been in the past. Probably won't be back for a long time.

Everyone seemed pleased with their meals. We had little ones with us and the staff was great with them. The chicken Speidini was the big winner. The olive oil set up was a nice add on as well. Salads were great. I dreamed of the Veal Limonata it was not as good as it had been years ago when I lived in KC. And they drowned my meal in the sauce. No Capers (it always had them before) and it was always lightly crispy very thin pieces before with a freshly made butter and wine based lemon sauce. This seemed premade and maybe even ready made sauce not delicious house made sauce made for each order. id di not taste butter or wine flavors in the sauce this time. It did have a nice lemony flavor though just not as rich and fresh as it once was.

it's so nice to be able to count on a great restaurant to maintain their high standards and not be swayed by the fickle tastes of people that don't recognize quality, taste, and family traditions. Old school? Maybe, but that will never go out of style.
Thank you for being there year after year.

Very disappointed. The last time we were here it was great. This time, not so much. Bread came without butter, had to ask 3 times for enough place settings and missing butter, bar order never got delivered and arrived after we asked where it was - came after salads even though it was ordered before meals, olive oil dipping sauce came half way through the meal, brought fried ravioli instead of regular ravioli as the entree, vodka cream sauce was regular red sauce and we were charged a split plate in the kitchen for two kids and weren’t told there was a split meal charge after our server offered to split it in the kitchen. All around bad evening.

Met a friend for happy hour at Johnny Cascone's and had such a nice time that we stayed for dinner. I can heartily recommend the ravioli appetizer and we split the salmon cakes for dinner. They were delicious! Our server, Daniel, was very attentive and friendly.
