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.

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.

Consider the one and the only Italian restaurant specialised in Quick and fast food, similar to TGI Fridays , fedruckes...etc But Italian, quality of food excellent compared with the price and good location in the gulf road with good taste as well.

This restaurant has been in my list for almost every month, which is like too way ahead than any other! Though it makes you feel heavy and high; the orders are really good and its really a good place to be!

Couldn't find a bad choice till now! Soups are great, especially the Italian bread soup. Plates are of enormous size and very good value for money. Taste is also of high quality.
