Good dinner

We went here for our anniversary dinner. We both had the baked cheese tortellini. It was very tasty. The sauce it was cooked in reminded me of Chef Boyardee canned spaghetti, but that's okay, I like canned spaghetti...lol The portions were large enough that I had enough left for lunch the next day... read more

I wanted a piece of really good Lasagna and the waitress said that I would love it and I did! I had enough left over for lunch the next day. I always try the Lasagna as I live alone and can't have it at home because it serves 12. I would get tired of it after 12 days, don't you... More

We've eaten many times at Johnny Carino's in Sioux Falls in the past. The food was delicious. They deliver to hotel next door which was a plus for us and our situation. They had everything, only forgot a spoon for my soup. Food was hot and very tasty.

Been there once again and had great service and great food. I love a place that gives something to eat for free while you wait. We had appetizers mushrooms, calamari as we ate too late. My only complaint would be the restaurant is very dark. I had a hard time reading the menu.

Good food, if you like bread, oil, vinegar, Italian, and pasta! Go on the family night for a great night out of cheap deals for the family. Bowtie pasta is yummy!

I had gluten free pasta which was great. I just wish there was a gluten free appetizer so I didn't have to watch everyone devour bread sticks.

Great place, we went there because Best Western gave us a free drink card and figured what the heck. Great salad with pecan crusted chicken and a lovely lasagne. Stop in!

When traveling, I try to look for places that aren't your typical chain. Johnny Carino's was close to my hotel so I gave it a shot. For my appetizer, I went with the fried calamari. I would say this was better than average based on all the fried calamari I've eaten. Being indecisive, I chose the combo which came with... More
