I escorted a bus of 34 travelers and were scheduled to eat at Carino's upon arrival. We had a selection of 4 dinners to choose from. All 34 travelers were very happy with their meals. We really reccommend this restaurant.

Te service was good and friendly. The sauces were good. But they over pasta-ed the meal so that there was not enough sauce or shrimp . For us it did not live up to the rating that was on Trip Adviser.

This place was better than Olive Garden but still not good authentic Italian Food. Don't get me wrong it was good in it's own way just not what I really like when it comes to great Italian food. I guess I am a little picky but I like the real stuff.

Every time we go to Tennessee we go to Carino's. Their Shrimp Scampi is great. and the Italian bread and special dip made with oil and herbs is absolutely delicious. They even gave us a loaf of bread to bring back to the cabin.

First visit to Johnny Carino's in Pigeon Forge for dinner. Menu has a good selection. Service excellent. Hot bread served with seasoned oil - delicious. There are "family platters" that can be shared which works well for groups. One size pizza - 10 inch - also delicious and the size is good for 2 to share. Family environment. Price range... More

I just love good Italian food. My family visits Pigeon Forge at least once a year for a weekend vacation. We have passed Carino's up for the past few years just never taking the time to stop in. But this past trip was different. I was in the mood for Italian so we called my cousin who lives in Pigeon... More

Visited This establishment yesterday with my wife. The dining area was tastefully decorated. We were warmly greeted a d seated immediately. Our server arrived promptly and introduced himself. Drink and appetizer order quickly taken. The bread was phenominal, the stuffed mushrooms were as well. Our main courses, spicy shrimp skillet for my wife and chicken parmesan for me, we're alright.... More
