Good food with super staff.

This Italian restaurant had good food and large portions. We asked our waitress about the portions when ordering and she said they were quite large and we could easily split. We ordered one meal and they split the salad and the entree for us. They served plenty of nice, warm bread. We shared a... read more

Food is ok, not spectacular and not worth what they charge. No dinner cost less then $12 and it does not include a side salad. Bread before dinner was dry and meals were just average. We would not go back or recommend there is much better around for the price.

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
