The most amazing eggplant Parmesan I have ever eaten. The service was good the calamari was cooked to long chewy but OK. Would definitely eat here again and would highly recommend a must when in pigeon forge.

I have mixed feelings about this restaurant. First off, the bread you get is pretty good. Our server came back a few times to check on us and the place was pretty clean looking. But 2 people in our party were sent running to the bathroom within 30 minutes of eating. The food didn't taste half bad but I have... More

This restaurant was very nice. Great customer service, good food and was close to our hotel. Price is around the range as Olive Garden. Would recommend.

We were looking for some great Italian food to pair with some wine we'd brought with us to Pigeon Forge, and we found it at Carino's. We each ordered the 16 layer lasagna with a side salad, and took it back to the cabin to enjoy. It was hands down the best meal we've ever had in Pigeon Forge. The... More

We've visited multiple Carino's and while many of their restuarants have closed, we've always wondered why. The food is great, complimentary bread and oil/spices is delish. We always get the Italian nachos for an appetizer and you couldn't ask for a better entree even. Delish! Enjoy :)

I was looking for something different than the meat and sides that I had had for dinner the past two nights. I ordered the shrimp scampi: Large succulent shrimp pan-sauteed with sliced mushrooms and chopped garlic, tossed with angel hair pasta and fresh basil in a white wine, lemon butter sauce. Garnished with roma tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. The waiter... More

It's been years since we've been to Johnny Carino's and since Pigeon Forge had one, we had go. This one did not disappoint! The Italian Chicken Nachos were as great as we remembered and the Grilled Chicken Bowtie Pasta was even better! My son got the lasagna and really enjoyed it but then tasted my pasta and liked that even... More
