Not the best that night

We came in late, but is that really an excuse?...prices didn't change. Stuck in the smelly stale-beer/bar section, service lacked (even the manager go figure or I would assume, was letting people go home). Out of four plates, my rosemary chicken was good as usual, but the rest was a bit tossed... read more

Fine Italian dining. Nice view of kitchen. Large selection of meal options. Large portions. I'm a big eater, and I couldn't eat all of mine. Quiet establishment

Stopped in for an early Dinner (4:15) and the Dining room was not open yet. Seated in the Bar and had Candace, an 11 year Veteran at Carino's serve us. Good service, and good food. Both the Wife and I had the Spaghetti and Meat Balls, Daughter had a Chicken Pasta dish and all were good. The Calamari app was... More

We visited on a fairly quiet week night. The food was wrong the first time and my plate was still wrong the second time out. The worst part however was realizing my daughters chicken strips where raw inside. Luckily she did not get sick but still- Don't bother.

We had a late weekend lunch at Johnny Carino's -late enough that it wasn't very busy. Service was prompt, our waitress was patient waiting for us to decide on our order, and she kept a pretty good eye on us after the food came. The food was good. The bread and olive oil brought before the meal almost filled us... More

We have stayed in Missoula many times and if we are here for a few days we almost always include Carino's in our dining plans. It is close to lots of the hotels at the north end of Reserve Street. (Exit 101 off I90) Good food, good service. You can dine in the lounge or restaurant. Same menu. I had... More

Stopped in Nov. 2nd for a late lunch. (2pm). Sat in the bar area. Waitress/bartender was a mess. By that I mean this gal looked like she had just been through the wringer like a dirty dish rag. She way completely disheveled. Hair, clothing and she looked like she'd been up all night. She was in no shape to be... More

We stopped by for a birthday dinner on Sunday night and had the most delicous food we've ever eaten at Johnny Carinos. The place has not only improved, it is fantastic. Bryce and Virginia were great servers; the entrees were fabulous including the fresh hot bread served with olive oil and garlic.The experience was so wonderful. We will return. Best... More
