The food was nicely prepared and tasted great. The price was a bit inflated for the quantity however. The quality was not the question. If I am going to pay $25.00 for a meal I would like a meal. I will go back but I will get something that is both quality as well as quantity for the price.

We didn't eat inside the restaurant, buy ordered food to go. They brought the food right out to the car. Reasonably priced, and best of all, delicious!

We were a Party of 6 with an infant. We were sat near the door which provided a constant draft. Our server seemed busy and not really attentive. The food was really good ( a little pricey), but the dinning room was so very loud that we could not carry on a conversation with the person across the table from... More

We first discovered Johnny Carino's in Bozeman, MT a number of years ago, and were very impressed with it. Have since eaten in their restaurants in Columbus, IN (twice) and Muncie, IN (3-4 times). Always a good experience. We meet family from Indy there, and it's a good place to have a leisurely visit along with good food. I often... More

My wife and I have eaten here twice now and find that the restaurant offers terrific rustic Italian food, but with the taint of it being a chain operation. Helpings are ample and the staff friendly and helpful. The table is immediately supplied with freshly baked bread and olive oil/roasted garlic dip. However, sauces are mass produced, if hardy, and...

Recently visited here while on business in Muncie. Meal was ok, nothing special that would make me want to come back ? I thought was expensive $30 for meal and salad with a draft beer. Service was good. Probably would not return.

I always have lunch at JC's whenever I'm in Muncie. I love, love, love their Italian Nachos and the bread with the garlic and olive oil dip. I would have them every day if I could. I ventured out for something new on the menu and had a new dish that had both Gorgonzola and blue cheese in it. I... More

We had a late dinner after moving our grandson to Muncie to attend Ball State. The service was great and the food was excellent. We all ordered something different and all of us enjoyed what we ordered. Our server was very nice even though i'm sure we were 1 of her last tables. I'm sure our grandson and his room... More

We ate at Johnny Carino's on Monday night which is family night. The special is a family size serving for the price of a single meal. My husband and I order one meal to split with an extra salad and still have enough to take home for another meal for two. The salads are crisp and cold. The bread is... More
