On business travel. My local contact brought me here. He says he goes there often for the good value. Prices are reasonable food is slightly above average.

I went here with a total party of 6 people and we spent almost our entire time there looking for our server and needing refills. When the food did finally get to us after a long wait it was actually good which is the only reason they are getting an average rating from me. Try their New York strip it... More

Tried Carino's a couple of times over the last year. Service is pretty good but the food quality is mediocre and the kitchen was slow. Modest wine list.

I'm not a real fan of chain restaurants, however Johnny Carina's is normally one of my absolute favorites. Normally. We were delighted when our hotel told us that this restaurant was just a few miles down the road so off we went. The service was nothing short of horrible and I should have followed my first instinct and walked out... More

I was suggested to eat here by my hotel and I liked it a lot. The service seemed a little slack but the food was wonderful. Coming from an italian home I enjoy pasta and this hit the spot for lunch.

We stopped at Carino's for dinner after traveling 10 hours in the car. The restaurant was clean, the service was good and the food was pretty good too. It's not the best italian food I've ever had but I didn't walk in expecting that from a chain restaurant anyway. For a few tired and hungry travelers, it hit the spot.... More

This is good Italian food. easy access from interstate, friendly service, no lines(most of the time). It definitely beats that 'other' italian restraunt chain.

Oops... accidently reported this as closed.. OPEN!!!! GPS wrong. Great food, great service they even have different sizes of glasses of wine... and a good selection too. I thought the food was better than olive garden. The dipping sauce with bread was roasted garlic in olive oil. I had the chicken ravoli and it had fresh basil as garnish along... More
