Welcome to John’s Restaurant – Rockford, IL

John’s Restaurant and Pizzeria is a family-owned and operated restaurant that has been in business for over 40 years.

John’s specializes in Italian cuisine, fresh seafood, steaks, and more. John and Maria Frisella, the owners, came to the United States from Sicily in 1969 and brought their love of Sicilian cuisine and passion for cooking with them.

As John says, “About 90 percent of our clientele are regulars that have been coming for at least 20 years. When I see them and speak with them, it is the same as speaking with family.”

From our family to yours –
