Great Food

I was in Alexandria on business and have been wanting to try this place. I walked in the front door about 6:15 pm and there was no one at the front reception area. I wasn't sure if I should seat myself or wait so I waited. A friend called and I sat up front and talked to him for about... read more

Average to below average Italian with pasta sauces seasoned very mild where an octogenarian would not find it to be spicy. Waitress was professional, decor & building nice & conducive to a good dining experience. Probably just an average franchise type Italian restaurant, nothing special to stand out.

This restaurant has a good range of Italian cuisine, some of it exceeding "good." The wine list is substantial for a family restaurant. Wait staff are eager and helpful. The tables and booths are comfortable. My wife had a chicken dish and I a seafood with pasta--both were satisfying and ample. The bread is warm and tasty as is the... More

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
