"A Best Meal"

The food was excellent, especially the entrees. My wife had a house salad and the grilled rosemary chicken with vegetable medley & angel hair pasta: very large portions. She said it was all excellent but she said the veggies and pasta made the meal! I had the salmon with roasted... read more

I have been wanting to try this place for a while. My family was excited to go. We walked in and were immediately seated in the bar. We had a 6 and 9 year old, which I thought was unusually strange for a hostess to put us there. The food came, and looked amazing. I had chicken Parmesan and lasagna... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Not many people there so we thought service would be quick. Not so. Food was ok, service felt "rushed". The waiter seemed like he wanted us gone because he tried to remove our plates with food still on them. We had not completely finished, but we're talking and eating at our leisure. Won't go... More

We came here after having a terrible experience at another restaurant and experience the same thing all over again. The waiter was absolutely awful! Saw him two times after ordering our food. Won't return. Food was no better than a frozen dinner. Love spending $60 on terrible service and food. Highly disappointed.

The service was not good, we never did get our bread, my food was cold and awful. I would never eat there again nor would I recommend it. You would think for the price that it would be good but it wasn't.

With SO many bad restaurants in this area, you always take a chance on whether you will get a decent meal or not. Most times, we leave with a promise to never return. But that's not the case with Carino's. No compliants at all - nohting but praise here from us. We will be back. Everyone was very polite and... More

Great family friendly atmosphere with friendly service. The food is always very good. I enjoy the larger portions so leftovers can be for lunch the next day. Be sure to check the back of the menu for family style specials or ask your waiter/waitress, it makes it more affordable.

Was visiting during the snow storm in Feb. so there was no wait time to be seated. We had the chicken fettuccine and chicken parmigiana. They were both very good and more than enough to eat. My wife liked it better than Olive Garden. The only drawback was that the waitress kept getting our sweet and unsweet tea mixed up.... More

We dined here this evening and found the food to be above average for an Italian chain, think Olive Garden. Our service was not the best and a bit pushy for drinks and desserts, but if you take control this is eased up. We had an order of lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, cannelloni and the tilapia. All were very good and... More
