Stopped by for a late lunch/early supper. Lunch specials are served until 4:00, so that is a bonus! Good atmosphere, friendly, knowledgeable staff. The warm bread and dipping oil is addictive. We had minestrone soup, which is served in a warmed bowl. We ordered bowtie festival chicken, which was delicious. We also had chicken fettucine and lobster ravioli. Everything was... More

When we arrived here for dinner, it was busy but we did not have to wait to get a table. The waitress attended to us promptly but after we were served our appetizer it was awhile before we received our dinners. The nachos were fantastic. Unfortunately, my meal was just average if that. I had the chicken marsala and it... More

Good food, great service, and we girls enjoy going there due to several things - never have we not had good service, nor bad food - great choice on their menu and we love the diced dried garlic served with oil and fresh bread - that's just the opener to the yum yum food. Reasonably prices and all this keeps... More

I have regular meetings at Carino's over the lunch hour. While most Italian places are known for supper I have to say my preference for a great lunch if the Carino's endless Salad and Soup combo. It is under $10 and it you are a regular you get a card which allows you to get your 7th lunch free! While... More

I love to eat at Italian restaurants all around the midwest because I am a pilot and love to try new places, but I was fully amazed by many aspects of Johnny Carino's tonight. I loved everything about the experience; the ambiance, the wait staff, and the food was to die for. They had an amazing selection to say the... More

Johnny Carino's menu is similar to Olive Garden's but the food is so much better. The warm bread rolls with flavored olive oil for dipping is to die for. The 16 layer lasagna is a favorite. Absolutely, everything I have tried has been excellent. This is a restaurant we try to go to every time we are in Fargo.

Great Italian and nice atmosphere! Definitely hit them up on Monday nights as their family platters are half price that night! For about $13-14 you end up with roughly 4 meals ;-)
