Once in month spot!

This restaurant has been in my list for almost every month, which is like too way ahead than any other! Though it makes you feel heavy and high; the orders are really good and its really a good place to be!

Consider the one and the only Italian restaurant specialised in Quick and fast food, similar to TGI Fridays , fedruckes...etc But Italian, quality of food excellent compared with the price and good location in the gulf road with good taste as well.

Couldn't find a bad choice till now! Soups are great, especially the Italian bread soup. Plates are of enormous size and very good value for money. Taste is also of high quality.

You get greeted instantly, doors are held open, requests are easily accommodated and you have to remind yourself you are not in the United States. Everything is perfect and the US recipes (I like their seasoning) are bang on. I only... More

Would have been better had our servers timed it so we did not receive our soups and salads... More

Carino's is number 1 italian restaurant for me.i am eating there for 10 yrs . Salads, main courses.. appetizers.. soups.. desserts.. everything is delicious and the service is excellent. Try the following when you go there: shrimp Scampi, italian nachos , ceasare salad, stuffed mushrooms, any type of steak with mashed potatos, chicken milano, tiramissu, pasta spicy with shrimps..all fantastic.

It is a nice resturant on the Gulf street. The view is good espically during the lunch time. I have been there on a sunny winter afternoon. Really enjoyed the cheese lunch.

The environment is superb and the service is fantastic. The true taste of Italian cuisine in Kuwait. The setting overlooking the beach is quite relaxing for a family day out after a long week of work in the gulf summer heat.
