Like chili popsicles and videos of grizzly-bear ballerinas, the simple, authentic Italian food at John's Restaurant & Pizzeria has been enjoyed for nearly 40 years due to its versatility and heartiness. Start with an order of baked clams ($9 for eight), bruschetta ($4.95), or fried zucchini sticks ($7). John's pizza starts with freshly made dough, 100-percent real part-skim mozzarella, and a fresh sauce made from California and Italian tomatoes. Try a pie topped with artichokes and sundried tomatoes ($17) or the sauce-less tomato and basil ($18). Meaty slices include the buffalo chicken ($21) or the chicken parmigiana ($21). Calzones, pastas, and heroes both hot and cold round out the menu.
