Expected better

Food was tasty, but waitress seldom checked on the table. Did not leave a good dining experience. I doubt I would go back. Never asked about dessert. Did not refill glasses. Too quick to leave table. Restaurant was not busy at all.

I would vote between average and very good but it didn't allow me that option !! Food was alright but I have had better from other Carino's Restaurants. I love the jalapeno garlic tilapia but here it seemed to be lacking the kick of jalapenos...I managed to find the exact recipe online and have cooked it myself as it is... More

Jesse our server was great. The Italian pot roast was exceptional. The angel hair with artichokes and chicken was super.

The pasta I had from the lunch menu was extremely good. However, being on a special diet, the lunch menu did not accommodate persons who may need to limit their carbs. There were not many things to chose from unless you ordered from the more expensive dinner menu.

The last three times I ate here were good reason why there wont be a fourth. The first time I ended up leasving after waiting 15 minutes for a server. The second was not much better and the third and last was when I got ice crystals in my sauce that was too cold to eat.

We went there not really even hoping, to get some really good food especially, because it is a restaurant chain. We were in Alexandria, the waiter (Steve) was absolutely fantastic and the food surprisingly awesome! One of the best restaurants we have been on our three months trip in the U.S.! It tasted like real Italian food, we felt like... More

I love the food and prices at Carino's. The stuffed mushrooms there are better than any others that I have ever had!

Food was good but went through several plates before getting clean dishes. Long wait for food and not busy. Still enjoyed the meal. Hopefully mgrs will fix issues encountered.

Great ambiance would lead one to think they're about to eat some great food. Not so at this restaurant. The food tasted as though it were pulled out of the freezer and then doused with garlic, oregano, and basil to make it seem more Italian. The roasted garlic oil with the complimentary bread is really the only reason to go.... More
