My husband and I had lunch on a Sunday at John's Italian Restaurant in Hamlin recently. The food was very good, the service was also good and the place is clean and comfortable. We would definitely go back and will try it for dinner sometime.

We eat hear often when we are back in town. Great staff, always friendly. Great food but our favorite is Clams Marinara! We have been eating at John's for almost thirty years.
