"Meh."

Visited on a Saturday night. This place-it was dead. This worried me but we had a seat in the bar area. The calamari we ordered for our appetizer was tender and very good. Wish I could say positive things about the soup and salad. Salad was gritty and the roasted potato soup was mediocre at best... read more

Just terrible service. I love Carinos so this is the third chance we have given this place. You probably would die of thirst before receiving a refill. Twice now we have not even got a salad. The couple behind us was told the kitchen is behind so it will be 20 minutes before they can order. Food was bland and... More

We went to Carino's in San Angelo on the 23rd of December for a family Christmas gathering. My husband and I were looking forward to trying Carrino's for the first time. Our experience was more than disappointing. The restaurant was not busy at all, which should have been and indicator of what was to come. Service was very slow, it... More

6pm dinner and the restaurant was empty plenty of empty tables and still required us to wait for 30 minutes to get a table. Very unorganized and unprofessional. Simply unacceptable. This is the second time this has happened. Last time was a lunch visit and the kitchen was on a "hold" so they wouldn't seat anyone for 20 minutes. But... More

Good food dependable I have the pecan chicken, a little too crispy on the edges. The taste was still excellent My husband had the bacon Mac and cheese. So yummy

Right next to Angelo State University is one of the busiest restaurants in San Angelo. Many of the servers are young and well trained colleges students. The place serves great ribs and sides(small). The place is clean, organized and well run. Wouldn't change much. A couple of 70 year olds and a college aged group all loved the food.

My favorite Italian place in Angelo. Addicted the bread. My favorite time to eat is Monday, family platters half price so my husband and I split the meal and have plenty left for take home. The ranch dressing is very good and the iceberg wedge salad is very tasty.

This is a very good Italian restaurant in San Angelo, Texas. I have eaten here many, many times. The service has alway been very good and I have never had bad service or food from Carino's. The bread is absolutely to die for. One of my favorite dishes is the Chick Penne Gorgonzola. I can not honestly tell you how... More

Tonight was the worst visit to Johnny Carino's. We have been many times in the past and have gotten good food and service but not tonight. The dining area was full so we were given a booth in the bar. The first waitress rushed to take our order before we had hardly touched the menu. After asking for more time,... More
