“Very, Very Good...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

My wife and I ate here on July, 19, 2014. We arrived just after 6:00 p.m. and we were immediately seated. The restaurant is warm and inviting. Our waitress took our drink orders and returned not long thereafter with them along with a very warm baguette and Italian dipping sauce. Both were very good. The menu is not cluttered with a never ending array of options. It was very easy to follow and did not overwhelm us with options like most restaurants.

We both ordered the sampler plate. This comes with a very generous portion of spaghetti with marinara sauce, chicken parmesan, and baked lasagna. We ate until we were about to pop and still had food left over. Needless to say, you get your money's worth here.

Overall the restaurant was clean, the staff was friendly, and the food was very good. This is a definite must if you want a good Italian dinner. We will return.

“Very Good Place To Eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We went here because it was within walking distance of our hotel, and we were tired of fighting the Pigeon Forge mid-summer traffic. Our service was very good, and the food was very good. We won't hesitate to come back here during our next visit to Pigeon Forge.

“This Place has gone downhill...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Carinos used to be the best Italian in the area. The food, value and service has gone downhill very fast. Much better Italian food in the area. Brothers in Sevierville is way better.

“Loved This Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We had a late lunch at Carino's during a recent family vacation. There were six of us. We were seated promptly and our drink order was taken immediately. Our server was very friendly. The food came out in a timely manner and everything was delicious! Very affordable as well, under 100.00 for 4 adults and 2 kids. Will definitely be back!

“Combination meal and Lettuce Wedge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My husband and I shared the Chicken Parm, lasagna, and spaghetti/marinara meal and a lettuce wedge. This was plenty for 2 and they did not charge to split it. It was absolutely delicious! Even though they were very busy, the service was excellent! We will definitely go back. You will not be disappointed.
