Great place for quiet conversation and the several times we have been there the staff has been friendly and efficient. The food is average - sort of what you would expect from a chain. A few times the pasta has been cooked very well a few times it has been sort of mushy. I do like the sauces although and... More

This restaurant is located close to I-80 and the mall; the seating and service were slow. Was not too impressed with the service or food.

We have been here several times. Love the bar area. You get better service and better prices sitting in the bar. We have found we really like the food at dinner time but not the lunch crew. They are working on this though. It seems over the last year they have tried to update their menu and be very customer... More

This place is about as Italian as IHOP. Pathetic frozen white bread passed off as Italian, mushy pasta with school cafeteria quality sauce, rushed service, personality-free servers. How on Earth does this place stay open?

About 20 of us sharing lunch with a speaker. No private room for us. Food was OK, nothing special. Staff kept changing, orders mixed up.

It started off with a glass of sweet wine I ordered. It was stale and dry tasting. Do not order the Moscato unless you like wine that tastes like it's been left open for a little too long. And was very buttery. They did offer to replace it but I just wasn't interested anymore. Then came my food. I ordered... More

They have an amazing selection of 200 beers! Their bar area serves peanuts with your drinks which I just love! This is a perfect place to meet friends after work for a couple of drinks or dinner. The food is amazing. It's your traditional italian meal with a little extra goodness. The service is great too.

Johnny Carino's is located, along with a dozen other restaurants, across from the mall in Fairfield, CA. The area is clean with no riff-raff in sight. My wife and I eat here a couple times a year, down from 4-5 times a year. We went less often because the menu didn't seem to excite us anymore. We went there this... More

We were a party of 4. Everything we ordered was good and so was the service. The restaurant was within walking distance from the Hilton Garden Inn.

Thursday dinner with family. I was a little concerned that it could be crowded but we got seated with no wait time. Menu had a good selection of dishes. Staff had good knowledge of items on menu and were helpful with our choices. We were seated at a booth facing the bar and we could also watch the game on... More
