This is our go-to restaurant whenever we visit Fargo but this time it was just average. My husband found our waiter irritating. We ordered a beverage and our dinner and it came out of the kitchen in less than 5 minutes. I ordered the Chicken Penne Gorgonzola which had a lot of penne, chicken, a mushroom soup type sauce and...

After a nice dinner in Fargo we stopped by Johnny Carino's for a "nite cap". Brenna, at the bar was very professional and a pleasant conversationalist. Its convenience to the Best Western Plus Kelly Inn made this "stop off" very convenient.

Walked here from the hotel. Met our requirement of good service and reasonable food. The iceburg salad was really tasty but huge! The pasta house special was less interesting and needed some rethinking in concept and taste. My wife loved the house cocktail and the house wine was a good deal. The beer selection left out anything good and local!

My husband and I eat out a lot and this was the best Italian food we have ever eaten.

Wonderful atmosphere and waitress, were very pleased and all was at a reasonable price. Don't miss this diamond in... More

I used to love this place. Went to one in Texas and the food was horrible and such a disappointment. Figuring it was a fluke I tried this one again and could hardly choke down the food it was so bad. Don't know what happened but will never go back again to any of their establishments.

Stopped for lunch at Johnny Carino's. Service was quick and friendly. The roasted garlic potato soup and the minestrone soup was good. Had Caesar salads which were your usual chain restaurant offerings.

We ate there as a family of 10, 4 of whom were young children. Staff was attentive and helpful, and the food came to us in a timely manner. The homemade pasta in the lasagna was wonderful! Because we were staying in a hotel, we didn't take our leftovers with us, but there likely was enough for a good-sized snack!

Thank Rae H
