We have never had a bad experience here. The food and service were great tonight just as they both have been on previous visits, and the portions are more than my wife and I can eat, so we always have enough left for lunch the next day We plan another visit on the next trip to the area.

We visited Pigeon Forge in August and made the mistake of not driving further up the strip to find a better dining establishment. We checked trip advisor and were sorely disappointed. We were whisked away from the dining area to the bar as soon as we arrived - we saw open tables so couldn't see why we were cast aside.... More

The menu at Johnny Carino's ranged from traditional Italian dishes to inventive menu selections. We stuck with the more authentic Italian meals. One of us had the Spaghetti and Handmade Meatballs which consisted of hand-rolled meatballs served over spaghetti with tasty zesty tomato sauce. The other had Chicken Fettuccine which was pasta with sliced grilled chicken in an Alfredo cream... More

We weren't super hungry, but wanted to try a restaurant we've never been to. I ordered the Italian Nachos as a dinner and they were fabulous. Very unique with "pasta" chips ! Would highly recommend. My wife had the Bacon Mac & Cheese dinner which was also unique and quite delicious. Our only complaint was the bread to go with... More

I have not ordered Spaghetti and Meatballs in a restaurant in many years because it is such an American staple and not very glamorous. We had been traveling for almost a week and "comfort food" was what I wanted. I was very pleasantly surprised at the wonderful flavor of my meal! It was the best I've ever had. The Marinara... More

This is always our first stop for dinner on our first night in Pigeon Forge. If you like real Italian food, you'll love Johnny Carino's. The waiter starts your meal with hot, freshly baked bread. He then mixes up some spices with olive oil for dipping - so good. The salads are really good too, much tastier than what you... More

We visited the weekend of the National Quartet Convention as a group for lunch. We had a really excellent server who took care of our needs and was very friendly. He went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our meal. The meal was excellent with some of the finest food I have tasted. They have a great selection... More

Our experience at this restaurant was great all around. Our server was pleasant, attentive to our needs, offered great suggestions. The food was very good. Unlimited bread with olive oil and spices and huge meal portions. If we travel to PF again, we will definitely eat here again!
