Tired so called it in!

We arrived at our hotel fairly late and very hungry. We looked to see which resturants were near us.Johnny Corrinos was close. I had eaten at one in another city and loved it so we thought we would give it a try. We looked up the menu on line, decided what we wanted, phoned in the order and my... read more

An Italian restaurant, not what your thinking, save your money. This food was very terrible, they cannot cook Italian food, what a disgrace and a waste of time and money for my family.

We stopped early Saturday for dinner. Restaurant was not busy. We were promptly greeted, ordered drinks and dinner. Wait staff asked once if everything was okay. When my spouse looked for the waitress to get our check, another employee asked if he was looking for the restroom. We truly had planned to ask for dessert to go, but felt fortunate... More

This is one of our go to places when we visit the Smoky Mountains. The food is always very good. We go for lunch because the portions are too big for us at dinner time. The service is always good and it is a relaxing atmosphere.

We stopped in here for a dinner after catching a show. I especially love Italian food as I am Italian. The waitress was slow and inefficient, salad did not come with the meal (really?) and the food was hardly edible. I had the eggplant parmesan which was very greasy and overcooked. My husband had the trio platter, and he hardly... More

Great food. My wife's favorite is jalapeño tilapia. I am a fan of lasagna. Service is great. Bread is awesome.

Great food and great service! The food choices were very broad. They have food for those who don't really like pasta. But for Italian lovers its a great place!!

We drove by Carino's and decided it looked worth trying. This was our first time eating at this restaurant. We were seated immediately and within seconds our lovely waitress Mariana appeared. She spoke with an Italian accent that just added to our experience. She brought us piping hot delicious bread and never let our bread basket empty. We ordered a... More

We make this a must stop on our annual trip to Pigeon Forge. The food is always fresh, never stale or tastes frozen and microwaved. The service is always friendly and prompt. We opt for the 2 can dine for $14.99. The early bird special is hidden on the back bottom of the menu, so look carefully and ask your... More

My teen daughter loves this restaurant. We used to have one here in Concord NC. but it closed unfortunately. We love the FireSticks which we were told were discontinued by corporate and this location still makes them by hand (Glad of that (Corporate: What were you thinking???))! Waitress was very friendly and did a good job. Food is always delicious.... More
