Favorite for Date night

Yes there are more traditional "real" Italian Restaurants. But for the price and location. Pretty yummy. People are always friendly. If you like something a tad bit different added or taken off a menu item, just ask!

During my attempted visit on July 11th we found the resturant closed and boarded up. Research indicates that the corporation has filed for Chapter 11 protection and has closed many stores across the nation.

Chain restaurant with bad food. Pasta dishes were all overcooked. Didn't like the sauce. Won't be back.

Wow this meal could not have been any worse. Actually I guess it could have. The chicken was over cooked. The pasta was not drained properly. The sauce was almost flavorless. The sauce only had a taste of margarine. The bacon tasted like that bacon that comes in a can of pork and beans. My wife could not even finish... More

>I called in an order "to go" for Chicken Marsala. When I got home I was not sure what I got but it was not Chicken Marsala. It was late so I put the order in the refrigerator and used it last night to create Chicken Marsala. My wife said my creation tasted grest.

I am a pizza snob...my Margarita was thin crust, crisp, I have them chop the tomatoes and add extra basil. So good. Great place for lunch or dinner. Love the wine selection for... More

We were referred here by our hotel and it did not live up to our expectations. The somewhat Italian menu seemed to be prepackaged and not at all homemade. Not very tasty Lobster ravioli and overcooked pasta. Had to make a special request for no garlic on the bread and it took forever to get out of the oven. Kids... More

Can't beat the value when you come in on a Monday. Place is busy and the staff is a little slow, but expected. Our waitress did a great job and the food was delicious. Definitely recommend the Chicken Gorgonzola.

I like Carino's because of the Italian atmosphere and their food are pretty generous in terms of portion. My only concern is that, even though we asked about spices, the parmigiana came very spice for us. Great but hot!!!

The food and service was very good, we both ordered entrees but ended up dividing his lunch portion of Tilapia w/ jalapeño cream sauce. It was a very large portion and delicious!!
