The Food is good.

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.

Love to eat at a Carino's whenever we travel to a city that has one. But, this restaurant had great staff. They were all friendly and accommodating. That makes a restaurant get extra stars for me.

We dined here at around 3 pm so the place was not very busy (in between lunch and dinner). Luckily, the waitress we got was someone whom we've known for a while (from different restaurants). I got the bowtie and the wife got the fish (I think it was salmon). The portions were really good, especially since we got a... More

I gave three stars because we were seated quickly and the food was predictably decent being a Carino's chain restaurant. Otherwise, we waited over an hour for our dinner order. Although they had people there, they weren't what I would call busy. After 45 minutes, our waitress asked if we were doing OK. I said no! We had other things... More

My husband and I went with friends for New Year's Eve. We went fairly early and didn't have to wait long to be seated. Service was not very good, we waited for the olive oil and bread and then waited a long time for the salads. My husband ordered soup instead of salad and the soup came right away. The... More

Visited for lunch on a Saturday using a Groupon I purchased. The menu seemed a bit expensive for two people for a Saturday lunch. I am not sure if this was a lunch menu or an all day menu. However, the portions were large and we could have just purchased one meal and split it. The soup was very good... More

The food was just ok but for the price, I rather of went to Olive Garden..love those bread sticks there. Anyway I ordered the sampler and the chicken parm was good. I was excited to try the 16 layer lasagna but wasnt impressed as much as I thought id be. The best part of it was I was there with... More

Four Caesar salads - check, three loaves of bread - check, huge portion of gluten-free pasta - check, ladle of meat sauce - whoa ... wait a minute!... More

Overall this place is pretty good! The food is delicious, service is spot on. They bring you a small loaf of bread along with olive oil and garlic pieces in it. Quite good. Can get more. The salad or soup is all the refills you can eat, if you have salad you can try soup next. Very cool! Then the... More
