The pasta dishes are awesome every time. The staff is excellent. The restaurant is a little dark, but is relaxing.

Whenever traveling (usually in southern states) we try and find a Johnny Carinos. Love their bread, salad, and pasta dishes. Was surprised to find one in Souix Falls. Waiter was super friendly and attentive. Try this place if you never have.

From the silence at our table, I deduced everyone was enjoying their food too much to talk. The menu had great variety, it suited the 6 picky eaters at our table--even the dairy-free, gluten-free, meat-free one! If you are adventurous to explore "non-traditional" Italian, you have choices there, too; one of the group tried an Acadian dish, as his friends... More

Food and service are adequate. Generally speaking the customer is seated promptly and served within a reasonable wait time. Food is marginal to good. We dine here only occaisionally.

Pasta was okay but not anything to get excited about. More like olive gardens twin sister but you get salad with your meal at least at Olive Garden. Ugh bread was good, kids meals were small and sub par. Won't go here again."

Tonight was my first experience at Carinos. The place is dark, but has a very relaxing atmosphere. We started off with hand-breaded calamari for our appetizer; which was the best I've ever had. So fresh and full of flavor! I ordered the Skilletini with sausage and chicken. It was good, filling, and plenty of left overs! My fiance ordered the... More

Always delicious but we go there most often on Monday nights when they have half off their family entrees. Their warm bread/flavored oil is a great start. We get 3 different favorites and split them among all 6 of us. Usually have left-overs which is a delicious treat for another day.

This place is always very good. Nice, clean, calm, beautiful atmosphere! I do think i have ever had a bad experience. Weekends they do get pretty busy but comes with a great place! And of course worth the wait!!!!
