Pretty good!

Server Maxx was excellent! Very efficient! Food was pretty good! Appetizers were great! I wasn't thrilled with my dinner but everyone else was happy! Husband said flavors were very fresh! May give it try again and not order same thing. We didn't have to wait for our food! Very very good!

We came here as a family for vacation. We had excellent service, great food, and it was way more than any of us could eat. The prices were also fair for the amount of food that we received. I highly, highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely eat here again. Everything we ordered was great!

Johnny Carino's hit all the marks for an Italian Restaurant. Nothing particularly great or special, but nothing bad either. Service was quick and the timing of our meal was perfect. The food was delicious, especially the bread and olive oil/spice blend. If you want Italian and don't love the Olive Garden this is the place for you.

If you like a lot of fennel, then you might love these meatballs, but my husband and I both found the dish to be gross. I gave this place a "3" because my parents enjoyed their meal. The bread served before the meal was very good. We were excited to try it out, but we won't be back.

We had a friends reunion with a couple from Florida at Carino's. Food & service was excellent. Music was soft so we could talk and no pressure for us to leave. Able to seat and talk and catch up on each other. I live in the area and its one of my favorite places.

We got there about 1pm with a party of 7 where we were sat right away. GREAT FOOD and for sure more food then we could all eat. Prices for lunch were very acceptable. YOU HAVE TO LOVE THE bread, oil and herbs they bring to your table. GREAT FOOD and SERVICE all the way around.

I had never eaten at a Johnny Carino's and was craving some Chicken Cacciatore. I was not happy that the Italian restaurant did not offer this on their menu, but decided on another chicken dish. I was expecting Olive Garden quality food...but got a very nice surprise when the flavors of the food was above and beyond anything I had... More

When my family arrived at Carino's we were told that we could expect a 20-25 minute wait for a party of six. We decided that was acceptable. One and a half hours later the hostess told us that we could be seated if we split the party. Having two children ages 4 and under one year, we went with this... More

We eat here at least twice a year and we've never been let down. Get the Italian nachos as an appetizer and then any entree is delicious! Enjoy!
