“One of my Favorite Places in Kuwait City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for a great Italian place, I highly recommend Johnny Carino's on Gulf Rd. in Kuwait. Everything about our meal was perfect. We started with flavored iced-teas, and flavoring was generous. Next we had an amazing Caesar salad and bread fresh from the oven. The dipping oil was delicious with its onion flavoring. Also, we shared some cream of mushroom soup. Our main courses were lasagna, a spicy seafood with Alfredo sauce, a spicy beef pasta, and finally a veggie pasta with lots of fresh vegetables. Each dish was better and more flavorful than the previous one. Our server was attentive and very good. And the manager checked on us. We finished our meal with a piece of cheesecake. We had food left for take-away. Absolutely, perfect. I'll definitely return.

“must visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Johnny Carino's is on the Gulf Road just past Sharq. It is a lovely setting right on the beach and the food is outstanding and reasonably priced. A good value for your KD.

“Welcome Taste of Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

The food and service are just as good as any Johnny Carino's we've eaten at back home. We really enjoyed our meal and the service was great. This was a welcome taste of home.

“Very average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is very average Italian American food, with the cheapest ingredients (e.g. definitely not mozarella on the pizzas but some undefined industrial cheese), all heavy and fairly tasteless.
The staff was very nice though, and attentive to the children as well as the adults, but I will definitely never return.
