This place is good to have breakfast or lunch or dinner with friends & families. The place is good in terms of food quality, ambience & service. However, I found this place little bit costly. Those, who are fond of Italian food, can try this restaurant. There are few options for vegetarians.

we went to Johnny Carino after son's grade 6 graduation. Son had the italian burger, which was outstanding, while dad (me) had the lasagna as usual, which is always super fantastic. BEST lasagna in the world. not kidding. youngest daughter had the pizza while mommy had the chicken parm panino.

I ordered soup and chicken Marsala. When the soup arrived, no bread had been served. The waitress said it would be 2 minutes. The entrée arrived, still no bread... The chicken was really old and hard. The sauce was watery. The pasta was plain and tasteless. Either no salt in the boiling water, or just poor quality. Definitely not a... More

We as a family are big fans of Johnny Carinos and italian food. Their food is tasty and big in quantity and we love their soup and salads. But i was disappointed from their iftar buffet today. Don't get me wrong the food tastes good but the variety was very poor and not in the same quality of their regular... More

We have been to carinos after a decade. The place is really good. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The restaurant was quite busy. Atmosphere was quite chaotic with lots of young kids loudly chatting adding to the Italian feel. We had a family platter with chicken and shrimp combo. The salad, soup and bread was on house. The...

The restaurant has a beautiful location with a partial sea view for some tables. the food is freshly prepared and the menu contains enough variety of dishes although some of them are not available. The restaurant hasn't changed for at least the last five years. The food quality is good but not excellent, they have to improve the meat quality... More
