If you are looking for a great Italian place, I highly recommend Johnny Carino's on Gulf Rd. in Kuwait. Everything about our meal was perfect. We started with flavored iced-teas, and flavoring was generous. Next we had an amazing Caesar salad and bread fresh from the oven. The dipping oil was delicious with its onion flavoring. Also, we shared some... More

Johnny Carino's is on the Gulf Road just past Sharq. It is a lovely setting right on the beach and the food is outstanding and reasonably priced. A good value for your KD.

The food and service are just as good as any Johnny Carino's we've eaten at back home. We really enjoyed our meal and the service was great. This was a welcome taste of home.

This is very average Italian American food, with the cheapest ingredients (e.g. definitely not mozarella on the pizzas but some undefined industrial cheese), all heavy and fairly tasteless. The staff was very nice though, and attentive to the children as well as the adults, but I will definitely never return.

Visited for lunch with my family of four. Splendid location by the sea and well laid our Restaurant. The food was delicious and portions were big! The House salad (free refills) was very good to begin with. The garlic bread accompanied by toasted garlic bits in olive oil was so good we could have eaten only that the whole day!... More

I cannot say anything other than our family love this restaurant. Prices are just right for the amount of food you get. The staff is friendly and very attentive. The managers visit each table to make sure that you get great service. We come eat at this restaurant once/twice a month and some very special occasions too. I recommend this... More

I made the mistake one time of looking up the calorie count of the food I eat here - ouch! The food is terrific and the prices are bearable.
