“Great Italian Food at a Reasonable Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Carino's is a hometown favorite. The fresh bread and dipping oil start the meal off right. Eggplant Parmesan is the BEST IN TOWN! Good food. Nice atmosphere. We love it!

Much better than Olive Garden...better food, better ambiance, quicker seating. Everything we've tried here has always been good.

“I LOVE this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Carinos is one of the best restaurants in Longview. Occasionally you will get assigned bad waitstaff, but it is few and far between. The food is excellent here...from the Skilletini to the tiramisu. The Italian soda is wonderful! Every plate that my family and I have ordered has been fantastic. We love the warm bread and dipping oil that is offered while you wait for your food. Carinos is one of our favorites and I can't speak highly enough about it!

“Always great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

The menu at Carino's is consistently above average, as is the cleanliness and atmosphere! The service however, can be "spotty" as most service at large chain restaurants are today.

The Italian Nachos are a tasty and unique food treat! They take pasta, deep fry them into a crisp chip-like consistency and drizzle Alfredo sauce over the chips - AWESOME idea! Mexico may have invented Nachos but Italy has perfected them!!
