The service here was good. Our waiter was attentive. We got bread and oil, which is always a welcome treat when we sit down. The wine selection was basic but I was able to find one I liked, no problem. The food comes in LARGE portions. We had plenty of leftovers but that was ok because the food was enjoyable.... More

I stopped in for lunch and got bread, salad and pasta for just over $12.00 and still had enough for a second meal. Everything was really good and for this value I recommend it.

Selected Johnny Carino's in Missoula today for a family celebration lunch. I recently underwent weight loss surgery. One of the changes to eating habits is to not drink fluids with your meals. When the waitress asked for our drink order, I said nothing for me please. The waitress replied that she can't serve me unless I order a drink. The... More

We started with the calamari appetizer which was very nice. The bread and oil/garlic that comes standard was excellent. We split the lasagna and both ordered a side salad. It's nice to find a restaurant that allows couples to split an entree with hitting them with a split plate charge. We will definitely look for other Johnny Carino's on our... More

We live in Washington State and love Johnny Carino's! We always eat there when traveling through Montana because we don't have one in our area. Their food is always good and also a good value. We have never had a bad experience with the food or the service. Would highly recommend!

My husband and I stopped for a late lunch...they were sitting everyone in the bar area. It was a chain restaurant that lived up to expectations. Decent Italian food and wine. My husband had the lasagna and I had the all-you-can-eat house salad which as a deal at $4. The service was OK; they were probably a little busier than... More

I don't know why, but I do. Well, I do know why. The food is pretty good and the service is good. It's a decent franchise restaurant that I would frequent.

We've eaten at Johnny's several times, and the food remains good, prices aren't too high, and you get a nice amount of food for your order. We like the lasagna and angel hair spaghetti, and the regular spaghetti with meat sauce is great too. Worth dining here if you want Italian food thats not greasy or too pricy.

I wouldn't call it authentic Italian but the overall meal was good. Close to our hotel and reasonably priced.

I liked most of the food here except for the Chicken Marsala. The spinach had a horribly bitter taste probably due to burnt garlic.
