Used to love these restaurants and this is the first one I've tried in several years. Unfortunately it didn't live up to my memories. Our service was good, the place is comfortable but the food was just okay. I will probably look for other options in the future.

I really don't like to eat at a chain restaurant while traveling as I like to explore the local places but the majority ruled here and we were not disappointed. The service was a bit slow but friendly so we did not mind especially since the drinks were really good. It was Monday so family meal were half off. No... More

In a small town like Alamogordo with local restaurants, sometimes a known quality is nice to have. Dining in Carino's here is like dining in one in any city, with a solid menu and good food. Service was attentive and professional, the food service was prompt, and the prices reasonable. Nothing exceptional, just a good experience that met our expectations.

October 10, 2016 - While staying at the Fairfield Inn, Alamogordo, New Mexico, we had dinner at Carino's Italian Restaurant. What a delightful surprise. First, they have an extensive menu. Second, they do not charge for plate sharing. Third, and the best part, our taste buds were treated to the best lasagna we have ever had. Now, I know that... More

The food was good, maybe a little pricey for Alamogordo though. Service was prompt and good too. And the bread and olive oil they serve as soon as you get to the table was delicious.

We live in Alamogordo and eat out here every month or so. The 2 for $20 menu is great, and on Monday nights, they have family meals for half price. The food and service is always excellent.

Nothing special about that place. Very dark and veeeeery cold no matter what month. Prices are totally fine. What's up with that horrible "italien" sausage :(

Seven of us enjoyed a great dinner here. The main dining room was full, but they opened up a separate room for us. Fast service, very fast in receiving our food, especially considering how busy they were. Staff was great, food was great, serving sizes were HUGE. I definitely would recommend this place.
