Food was great, service not so much.

Went on a Friday night, had to wait about 20 minutes for a table despite there being empty tables visible within the restaurant. Was finally seated and it took close to 10 minutes before a server arrived to get drink orders. Another 15 minutes later and he was back with our drinks and ready to take... read more

My husband and I have always loved Carino's , but we had not been there in quite some time. The hostess was nothing less than terrible. She would leave people standing , while she ran all over the restaurant looking lost . She would seat someone, then go back and get the bread plates and silverware . Forget who she... More

I visited this restaurant on a Sunday night with my family. The food itself was not bad but the hostess' attitude ruined the night for us. We arrived and stood in front of the host stand where no one helped us for several minutes. There were plenty of empty seats visible so we got the attention of the nearest employee.... More

Carino's has a special place in my heart. The go to Italian restaurant. It's OK. What makes it ok? Well, the food is OK. The service is OK. The prices are OK. Nothing special and nothing that stands out and makes me want to go back. Sad but true.

Stopped here for supper while stopping overnight in North Little Rock on the way from Atlanta, GA, to Branson, MO. My wife and I enjoyed a delicious meal consisting of a bowl of fresh salad and main course dishes of ample servings of Chicken Marsala and Spaghetti & Meatballs - very tasty. Served also with a small loaf of bread... More

Last minute choice from family shopping and we picked a good one. Service family friendly, meals hot and full, and the veal parm. was excellent. Kids menu items ok and really small. Before 6pm I think they have happy hour prices.

I've gone here a few times to try different items on the menu. I'm Italian and find the food here is very heavy and it's just too much. The flavor of the food is just all over the place. I love the bread served before the meal, that's very good. The service is very good as well.

The food was good but the service was a little slow. It was lunch time on a Saturday and many folks stopped in after shopping. The restaurant is near shops and hotels! The staff was cordial and made us feel welcomed! I love the bread and dipping oil and vinegar

Arrive around 6PM for dinner with a co-worker. Seated quickly by friendly staff who honored request for a booth. Only a handful people in restaurant so not a difficult request to handle. Our waiter Jason took some time to arrive making us wonder what was keeping him because it wasnt a crowd. Once he came to the table he was... More

Chris, the waiter, was AMAZING!!! He should be training other waiters and waitresses....seriously. The food always taste good but it makes you want to turn around and walk out the door when you see the cooks playing on their cellphones!!! It's an open kitchen and they need to remain aware of that. The main cook wasn't involved and granted one... More
