Predictably Good

Food was good in keeping true with other Carino's. There was no wait, the staff was friendly, and the food was good. Venue was a little aged but clean. Would go back again.

We ate there on our last night in town. Wish we had gone earlier in the week. Food was excellent; especially the hot italian bread with olive dipping sauce.

The place is nice and clean and I had a polite server. I just really didn't care for the food at all. The bread at first was the best thing.

We just had an awesome dinner. Jeremy was right on time, not only with his service but with his humor and friendliness. We can tell he's a hard worker AND he made us laugh. Thank you Jeremy.

Our family had dinner at Johnny Carino's in Pigeon Forge this past Saturday evening. The food was good, not great. Everyone ordered different dishes including lasagna, a sausage and pepper skillet dish, shrimp and a couple of others. The service was a little slow, but it was Memorial Day weekend, so we were fine. If in the area, I might... More

This is a regular stop on our yearly trip to Pigeon Forge. The food & service is consistently great. We had the calamari as an appetizer. It was just ok but our main dish the "grilled chicken bow tie festival" was amazing! The portions are very large. Plus, there was enough food left for lunch the next day. We are... More

This restaurant has an excellent lunch menu with very reasonable prices and many items from which to choose. The portions were very large too. I could not begin to eat my entree. The wait staff was extremely friendly. It was not very crowded either. (Not sure if that's typical for a Friday lunch or not.) But well worth a stop.
