4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Sat in the bar where the bartender/waiter offered us the daily special.....steak/baked potato/soup or salad for $12 (I think). It was all delicious! My only complaint is I succumbed to a fancy drink (frozen peach bellini) which did not sit well with me that night. My fault, should have known better.

Ordered a last-minute lunch for 6 people, and Johnny Carino's came through in a flash, with no mistakes, and took extra care to ensure we had proper utensils, and additional condiments. The person who answered the phone was pleasant, thorough, and suggested ways to maximize our choices on the menu for cost efficiency. He was there when I picked up... More

It took some time to get seated but then was decent Italian food. They serve generous portions and have lots to choose from

1-10, I give it an 8. My wife and I were there for lunch. We ordered off the dinner menu, and our waiter told us if you order this other order, it is the same, but less money. I thought that was nice. The food and atmosphere were both good.

My wife and I stopped off in Missoula for one night as part of a road trip and our hotel clerk suggested Johnny Carino's after we asked where we could find Italian food. The restaurant was only a short stroll and we were quickly shown to a booth near to the bar. The restaurant was busy, mainly it appeared, with... More

Awful! No clean silver wear, "dishwasher broke" per employees. Was only 6 of us out for dinner and it turned out to be a 3 hour encore of terrible food, terrible waiting and terrible service all around! Was my late brother in laws favorite place but by far, I could say would now be his overall worst. Won't be returning.

Love how the chicken is always cooked to perfection and the spinach perfectly sautéed with yummy garlic.

I expected Italian food on the order of Olive Garden, since this is another chain restaurant. I was wrong. I had fettucine alfredo with seafood, which was absolutely luscious. The Caesar salad with fresh bread was equally good, and a locally brewed glass of ale topped off the meal wonderfully. I fully intend to be back for more.

We stopped in for dinner on a Friday night after coming back from Glacier National Park. The staff was very friendly and our waiter was very fast, efficient and friendly. I I had lasagna which was melt-in-your-mouth. I really wasn't all that hungry but I ate every bite! My husband had pasta with sausage which was also really good. We... More
