Good Gluten Free Pasta

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.

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!

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

When staying at the Best Western Kelly Inn we got a buy one get one free drink at this restaurant so we went over for dinner. We sat outside on the patio and had dinner and drinks. The food was great and the service was great as well. Would definitely go again.

We went in about 8:30 on a weeknight, so it wasn't busy. My daughter ordered soup and I chose the timballo. We waited. My wine, which was advertised as 10 oz, was nowhere near that size. We waited. As my dinner came out, the waiter tells us that they are out of the soup. He didn't tell us before, but... More
