Good food great service!

This is a family friendly place for dinner, they will graciously accommodate large parties but this is also a nice place for a date night as well.

We visit or pass through Waxahachie pretty regularly and have stopped to eat here from time to time for something different and something we can't get at home (Corsicana). Service is usually fair or better. I can't say that I have had excellent service by comparison to a few other places I have eaten at but I don't recall ever... More

I love the Monday special. I order take out monthly and pick it up. I have received excellent service and the lasagna is just delicious. I sometime get dessert which has been great. I do not usually dine in because I am coming from shopping and on my way home. The bread is very good with a little sauce.

I really like Carino's. The service is excellent whether you order to go or dine in. My husband and I love their Italian pot roast with roasted rosemary potatoes. The portions are so large we get a to go box and have enough for a second meal. And the hot, fresh bread with seasoned olive oil! Oh my, it is... More

This is going to be a very tricky review to write. So let me start by saying that I've always enjoyed Carino's FOOD when I come to this location. The service on the other hand, I don't have one positive thing to say about it. Olive Garden is right next door, and after tonight's experience at Carino's i will be... More

Server was great and food excellent, no regrets. Great fresh bread with meal and they even made me a white sangria (off menu) - so they weren't afraid to personalize my meal.

I made reservations for 20 ppl when we arrived the area wasn't clean. We waited 2 hours for our food and when it finally came they told us part of the meal wouldn't be done for 30 minutes but we could just take that portion to go, We agreed then when we got our plates they looked like kids plates....

Server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. She kept up with our drinks and requests. The kitchen was slow and we didn't get our appetizer tell right before the meal. Wife's Mac and Cheese had good flavor but was not presented on the plate very well. Looked like a big blog.
