A good meal, good servie and a big menu

We were very tired after driving all day when we arrived. We were happy to find an all you can eat soup and salad option that some of our group selected. Service was excellent and the prices were good for the food quality.

Good food and good service. If you want Italian food at a fair price this is a nice place. Pretty busy as it is close to lots of hotels. Expect to wait if you show up at prime dinner time.

Every time my wife and I go to Missoula, this is one of our favorite places to eat. We are vegetarian and they offer a few dishes that we can eat including pizza. The food is always hot and tasty. They offer a selection of local brews as well as other micro-brewery beers. The prices are a little above average... More

We had just arrived in town and this restaurant was walking distance to our hotel. It was decent. Not great-not terrible.

We live near Missoula and have eaten at Johnny Carino's several times. It is a small restaurant chain and when it came to MIssoula, we were excited. The food is okay, the wine list is average, but the service is superb. There are other Italian restaurants in Missoula that are better, but it's close to the interstate. I would suggest... More

Eating at Carino's is a nice experience because the customer is treated very well. The food is good and I particularly like that I can order gluten free meals. This restaurant is easy to get to, parking is good. They used to have 3 booths with curtains that many people loved and considered a feather in their cap if they... More

We were passing through Missoula and wanted something a bit different. This was one of the closest restaurants to I-90 which wasn't part of a larger chain, so we tried it. We were not disappointed. First, it was past normal lunch and the usual lunch crowd had come and gone, so service was prompt and food preparation well executed. The... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch, Russ had soup & salad & I had eggplant parmesan. The bread with roasted garlic & olive oil was delicious with the minestrone soup, I had preceding the entrée. The service was excellent also. We had arrived about 11:30 so ahead of the noon crowd. There is ample space, so not likely a problem with... More

Johnny Carino's was conveniently located across from our hotel so we made a quick stop for dinner. The environment was a little dark and it took a while to be seated but once settled in, we were served immediately. The house wines are OK and the food just adequate. I wouldn't go back nor would I recommend this restaurant only... More

We went to this restaurant because it reviewed fairly well and one of the few restaurants open on a Sunday. The service was very slow, although you could tell they were very busy with not a lot of staff working. We ordered both beef and lobster ravioli, spaghetti and meatballs and a kids meal. The beef ravioli arrived cold, the... More
