Good to Great everytime.

Ask a local for Italian and Johnny Carino's will be mentioned. Always good and the open kitchen is hopping. Expect big portions, nice friendly atmosphere and service. Fair priced and flavorful selections. You will not go away hungry.

Oh it was sooooooo good. The bread and olive oil - wow. Better than dessert, which we were too full to have. I had Chicken Parmigiana which was very good, my husband had the Five Meat pasta which he DEVOURED! Our waiter was fantastic! They have a great wine and cocktail selection, although we don't drink often.

Went here on a Sat night. Waited for about 15 min which we thought was good considering we thought it would be a hour. Got drinks from bar while we waited. Had 3 adults and 3 kids with us. We all enjoyed our meal except my youngest son who was not thrilled with items on the kid menu. Pretty good... More

We were tired and grubby from a day's travel and were so surprised that we were able to get a table right away. Our meals were great and service was fantastic. 5 of us total with two kids (4 and 7).

Traveling through, decided on Italian, read the reviews. First of all, really busy on Monday night. They have some bogo special, so there were a ton of families there. Got seated quickly. Took a while to get waited on. Gave our order. Server "forgot" to bring my soup, apologized and said no charge when she did bring it. We had... More

We will be going back. I had the lobster ravioli with the wine trio. It was so gooooooood. I usually don't keep leftover but I ate mine the next day. My husband had the salad and said it was good and also the chicken pasta. He loved it. They are not huge meals I could have ate the entire place... More

The salmon dishes were good, but the salads were absolutely terrible - dead lettuce, green tomatoes, strange-tasting chicken! Good service. average prices. Nice outdoor patio. OK to dine here, just don't order the salad.

We showed up on Sunday evening around 5:30 for a meal with the family. They were busy but got our 5 in right away. Sat us down and drinks were there immediately. Waitress was great and got our orders in asap. While waiting the kids loved the fresh bread and kid menus and before they had time to get crazy... More

I love Carino's lunch specials especially their soup and salad feature. The food is very nice, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the ambiance is acceptable for chain restaurant.
