I love this place. It is a Carino's with a view of the Arabian Gulf. The staff is outstanding. 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

Johnny Carino's is a pleasant surprise in Kuwait. My party enjoyed 4 appetizers and entrees. All were delicious. I wish we had sat at a larger table, as there were more plates than the table could handle. We adjusted and made room. 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.

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.
