As a Longview resident this is my preferred Italian restaurant simply due to the superior food when compared to Olive Garden, but service is an issue about 75% of the time. The best results I have had is when sitting in the bar area. Also wine down Wednesdays is a great promotion with 1/2 price wine bottles.
We always enjoy our food here. We've never ordered a menu item we didn't like. Restaurant is peaceful & relaxing. Service is a little slow, so I can understand how it could get frustrating if you had kids with you.
We had 15 people at our table, our waitress was very good and attentive, this was my first time eating at Carinos and I wasn't impressed, the food to me wasn't very good, I much prefer Olive Garden to Carinos
I've been to this location a few times, but the service is always super slow. That's a real bummer when you have kids with you (I did twice) or co-workers and you're trying to have a work lunch.

After a long time she returned to take our food order but still no drinks so we asked the get the drinks before we placed our food order. She immediately returned with the drinks, they had... More
I try to eat here for lunch as often as possible. I always have food to take home. Smaller portions at lunch for less $$, but still enough to carry some home. The mini desserts are just enough!
I love this resturant but everytime I return it seems like the service is worse than the time before. The food is usually good. But not dependably. Take out is ok.
