Went just before Christmas. Area was busy with activity but restaurant was dead. Service was poor to lackluster. Food was as I have remembered in the past just average except for the bread. No reason to return very often here. Go to Olive Garden up the road for servers who love serving you.

I am not a person who gives a place only one shot. I'll try twice, maybe three if I feel they are trying. But the key word here is "Trying!" Let's start with drinks on my last visit. 1st ---- A big promotion about $5 drinks at the bar (which is no deal) but take a small glass, stuff it... More

We used to enjoy eating here when we were in Greenwood. But we came early last Sunday night and found we were among about a dozen people waiting to be seated. No problem. But I glanced in and noticed more than two-thirds of the tables in the restaurant sat empty. This usually isn't a good sign. After waiting awhile and... More

My favorite entree has been the bowtie festival, but I also enjoy choosing my own pasta type and sauce. The tiramisu is to die for!

I used to love this restaurant. But recently there menu has changed and you don't get unlimited soup and salad for free. Bread for dipping too will cost you. I used love all the free stuff. Now it just seems like everywhere else.

Visited Johnny Carino's for lunch Tuesday with my son and his family. They have a great lunch time special with many options. Two of us had the Jalapeño Garlic Tilapia and the other Spicy Shrimp and Chicken and we thought they were great. It was part of a unlimited soup or salad plus entree lunch special for $7.99. We also... More

When we arrived on a Friday night after 7:00, we were told there was a 20 minutes wait.After giving our names we informed the hostess that we will be waiting at the bar to please make sure to call us when the table was ready. She assured us that she will go and get us. After 30 minutes, my husband... More

The food is always good and I enjoy the selection of dishes which is different that what is offered at many other Italian places. I would give them one more star if I didn't have to pay extra for a salad with a full meal.

I've been to Johnny Carino's a few times but right now they have a $ 12.99 thing going on where you can pick an entree and another and another for those that can keep eating. I had the Spicy fish and pasta in a cream sauce that was very, very rich. Good taste, not enough filet but very filling with... More
