Serves the best Veal!!!

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

We were traveling home from vacation, stopped in Little Rock to stay the night, and wanted to order from Carino's since we had never had it. We ordered the Baked Cheese Tortellini & Spaghetti with Meatballs. Both dishes were bland and not worth the money. It may have helped if they didn't make us wait 15 minutes to pick up... More

The service was great. The food was good but nothing to brag about. I had the Pot Roast, it was spicy, the marinade was not to my taste but it was very tender

I ordered take out. It was ready in less than 15 minutes. The spaghetti was cooked well. The meat sauce was good with some sausage links. the bread they serve with the meal is GREAT. Be careful not to eat to much bread if you dine in!

Fresh food, as opposed to frozen reheated food in other chains. Good bread, good sauces, good pasta. Not too noisy. Wine selection, just OK.
