We decided to eat dinner here. The atmosphere is Italian. We had Chianti wine. I had lasagna since this one had meat. It was great. We had bread with the oil and spices. That was great also. We had Tiramisu. That was good also. BUT still an Italian restaurant that does not serve Spumoni. Oh Well. All in all the... More

On Monday's you can get a family size platter for the price of a regular dinner. If we are ever in town on a Monday, this is our choice! It is a small amount to add an unlimited soup or salad, but both are a great choice. The Gorgonzola cheese dressing (instead of Blue Cheese) that is wonderful! And the... More

Once upon a time Johnny Carino's made spme of the best Italian there was, before creating the second worst Italian restaurant right behind Spaghetti's. Carino's used to actually cook now it is just reheated clap.

This Johnny Carino's is a best kept secret! The GM, Cynthia Williams, is outstanding and she has a staff around her that really care about their customers! It would take a long time to list all staff so great job to you all. The wine specials are my favorite, not only their house wines but with two half-price days for... More

Great nightly specials Nice atmosphere and good wait staff 16 layer lasagna was wonderful and three of us split it and it was wonderful. Tiramisu for dessert could have had a bit more flavor, but it was very good. Good value for your dollar

We were traveling on I-65 and stopped for the night in Greenwood, IN. Our GPS found this place so we decided to give it a try. Glad we did. The food was very good and service was exceptional. My wife had a shrimp dish, AngArt w/ shrimp and I had the usual, lasagna. We were well pleased with both. They... More

A group of us went to Johnny Carino's in Greenwood last Saturday and had a great time. We had a bit of a wait because of the size of our group but the restaurant was very accommodating. The food was very good as was the service and atmosphere. Will do again!

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.
