First time at this restaurant, which was convenient to my hotel. Arrived at 9:00 PM and they were still serving. Found hostess to be friendly and accommodating. Eduardo was my server and he was well above average. Ordered the Johnny's Combo and was disappointed with the quality. The layers of cheese in the lasagna was not melted, middle was only... More

I had never been to a Johnny Carino's before. I was there for my daughter-in-law's baby shower that she had in the restaurants. The room was ample sized and it sat all the guests comfortably. The serving staff was amazing and were very attentive. Salad was served first and their Caesar Salad was fresh and delicious, followed by a main... More

My lunch came out quicker than most of the nearby fast food restaurants. Their 'signature' chicken parm had good flavor, but was a bit rubbery. Overall a good experience.

My family and I went to celebrate my mother's bday. We wanted for them to sing, but apparently they don't do that any more. The food was good; not amazing.

I am currently an employee at this Carino's and I have gone to eat with family/ friends and all these negative reviews are not true. Maybe because I know how a restaurant works I'm more understanding about things. Guests that complain over not getting seated "fast enough" don't understand that there are sections and some sections either don't have servers... More

You'll always wait to be seated even if it's not busy, hostesses just standing around worries about their appearance ( rude ) not really helpful. It's cramped and dark, food takes a while and it's ALWAYS DRY. I've tried serval dishes always more disappointing than the last time. Most of the staff is like I said earlier rude, manager doesn't...

Tried going there on a Sunday afternoon about 5 pm - NOT A BUSY TIME. 2 adults, 3 children. They asked us to have a seat while they got a table ready. And I saw no effort to get a table ready, even though I could see two empty booths from where we were sitting. NUMEROUS staff walked by and... More

Had dinner there on a Sunday night. Did not expect gourmet Italian food at a chain restaurant, but the food was mediocre at best. Caesar salad was OK and Chianti by the glass was very good. The Chicken with Marsala sauce was tough, not tender. But the worst part was how loud it was in the restaurant. Near us an... More

Service is extremely slow, have to ask for silverware, drinks came with no ice, food came out cold, a hair was in the pasta.
