Fast seating, pleasant waiter, decent menu selection, food was good, service was fast. Bar selection was limited. Servings were generous. Took half mine home and I'm a generous eater. Same for others in our party. Friend tried the pizza, looked great. Other pastas were average. Atmosphere was OK. Not as dark as others have said. Odd location in south Fargo,... More

We were trying a new restaurant and were disappointed. The lighting was the first disappointment of the evening. It was so dark we felt we should have had Braille menus. Luckily I had a flashlight to help us to see what the menu was. We did a family portion of their 6 layer lasagna and it lacked the desired Italian... More

Very close to our hotel, we chose this place for convenience. The service was first rate, but the food was pretty ordinary. Pasta was and our two chicken entrees were warm enough, but flavoring seemed bland.

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.
