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

I'm Italian and I ate there during a stay in Indiana. I found it delicious! Alfredo sauce pasta with chicken was great and I tasted the best Espresso I ever had sincce I was in the States. Really Italian!

Our boys love this place! Food is well prepared, very full featured menu and we especially like the stir-fried spaghetti dishes. This is a relaxing nice place to take your family with great food at a great value!

Great Italian food and super atmosphere. We love dining in the bar area. So many good food items to choose from and the bread they serve is so fresh. Can't wait to visit again.

I eat in Johnny Carino's each year when I visit Muncie for the National Model Airplane Championships. The food here is OK a step above the fare that is served at the Olive Garden. Being a New Yorker I am accustomed to eating in some of the better Italian restaurants here in NYC. When traveling outside NYC Italian cuisine becomes... More

This is a good to average restaurant. This was the first time back to this restaurant since about 3 yrs ago. I wasn't impressed back then, due to some serving issues and food quality that evening. However, my family and i I enjoyed the entrees. The prices are average to comparable restaurants, depending on your taste and size of portions.... More

I have always been a fan of this restaurant. Yes, it is like an Olive Garden, but they do have a more varied menu in my opinion. Years ago when they first opened in Muncie, they had several dishes I liked and the portions were massive. Today, however this is not really the case. Compared to 5 years ago, their... More
