Cure for a case of the Mondays

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.

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

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!!

While the food was acceptable the attitudes were horrible. I ordered a shot and a beer, and was almost thrown out. Apparently you can only have one thing at a time. I operate a liquor licensed establishment in the same state, and know it is not a State requirement. I like a shot of tequila chased with a small beer.... More

This is a pleasant restaurant that offers alcoholic beverages and decent Italian food, perhaps heavy on the tomato sauce. Don't go if you suffer from acid reflux or care about the comfort of your rear end.

Very friendly and the food is quite good. Also accomodates large family gatherings! As a solo diner, I feel quite comfortable dining here and I'm usually there at least once a month. They have great calamari!

Their food is wonderful and the atmosphere is very appealing. My favorites are the Italian nachos, Italian chili, and lasagna. Be sure to try this one!
