I know it's a chain, so my expectations weren't high. But they managed still to not meet them. My ribeye was very tough. The garlic in the olive oil for dipping the bread was burned. The chocolate lava cake was cold. It took forever to get a beer. The waitress more or less ignored us. I could go on and... More

My aunt and I chose this restaurant because it was close by (we were staying by, and heading to a concert at the Fargodome) and Italian sounded good. We absolutely loved this restaurant! First, the atmosphere and decor was great. However the food and service was phenomenal. I wish I would have taken the name of the server so I... More

The Wife and I spent forever looking for a good Italian place to eat and someone finally said here after everyone told us Olive Garden which is also good but we have one in winnipeg and wanted to try something different. Johnny Carino's was really nice, great food, great service and we had a good time.

Had a Dr's appointment for a checkup on surgery. They poked me 3 times so I had a martini for each poke! So I gave Jennifer our waitress an odd order, I told her I would take either 3 Martini's or a triple martini. As it worked out she was great! I received a triple martini and it was just... More

We've eaten here a few times, and the food is good and plentiful. Some parts of the restaurant can be crowded and hectic (and noisy) on busy days. Other than that, it's a good atmosphere - kind of like an evening street cafe but indoors. Fans of Italian food probably won't be disappointed coming here.

We love Italian food, and chose Johnny Carino's both because of the TripAdvisor reviews and the fact that it was only a mile from our wonderful Sleep Inn. The atmosphere is pleasant, and we were seated in a charming little table nook where we felt we had a lot of privacy but were still in the middle of everything. Our... More

Best chicken Marsala I've had. Served on a bed of spinach it was perfectly cooked in a sweet wine sauce. Wait staff was courteous and helpful. Wait time and ambiance was perfect. Recommend to anyone.

I came with my family for Mothers Day Weekend, which also happened to be Fargo Marathon. Busy as it was, the food was really good, and generous portions even for kids meals. I liked that they brought the plates out as they were ready. Nice dessert menu too. Only thing lacking was the service. Could be that our server was... More

I ate here while on vacation in late May. I started with a glass of white wine with lunch. It was crisp, fruity and delicious (do not remember the name of it). For my meal, I had the lasagna and a wedge salad. The wedge was fresh; it included bacon chunks and candied pecans with blue cheese dressing on the... More
