Good food, fair price

Just for a change, we decided to try Carino's for dinner on our last night of our Smoky Mountain vacation. Food was certainly better than average, service was great, and the price was certainly fair enough. I am sure we will visit again when we return for our next getaway.

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!

We ate here recently but unfortunately had to leave and take our food to the cabin as my son wasn't feeling well. I ordered the jalapeño ravioli with chicken. It was good but a little too spicy for my taste. My husband had the trio that included lasagna, chicken parm. and spaghetti. He wanted me to try the lasagna. Oh... More

We visited after a long day at Dollywood; so, we were not dressed to go to a restaurant as nice as it appeared. We received a very hospitable greeting at the door and was shown to our table. Our service was impeccable! Our drinks and our bread basket were kept full and the food arrived quickly. The food was great... More

My daughter wanted spaghetti for dinner. We chose Johnny Carino's Italian. My wife and I chose to dine on the "2 Dine for $14.99" special (available from 2pm-6pm). She got the Chicken Fettucini and liked it OK. It was kind of bland and needed seasoning better. I got the Eggplant Parmagiana - it was good! The spicy marinara was SPICY!... More

Was a bit skeptical after seeing some of the reviews. We loved our dinners..no complaints here. The food was good and so was the service. I would recommend this to a friend.
