I love the chicken nachos. Not something you would probably say at an Italian restaurant. The bread is always tasty , wish they still had the bottles on the table with the oil and herbs in it. Ever item on the menu that my husband has ordered he has really enjoyed. From chicken parm to the skillet dishes likes them... More

No wait to be seated. Was greeted by the server right away. Food was hot and very good. I ordered the Johnny's Skilletini and it was fantastic! I would recommend Carino's and I will be back.

September 4, 2016 We haven't been to a Carinos in years. They closed the one in Ft worth off of Hulen awhile back. Myself a BIG mistake. This Carinos in Waxahachie was great. Our waitress Amanda was very attentive. I asked for a small sample of the green chili jalapeño Alfredo sauce and the chef made a sample. The fresh... More

Jen is THE best bar none server we've had in a long time!! She MADE the night for us! She was spot on with the service and drinks throughout the evening. And she was funny and happy, energetic and on top of everything!! She regularly serves as a bartender but just happened to pitch in on our visit - we... More

We enjoyed the Italian atmosphere and the Italian food. We have been to Italy. The people who work there are fantastic.

I went there for a lunch with a colleague last week and was very pleased. The food was very good and authentic, the atmosphere was Italian (Frank Sinatra music playing the background!) The prices were very reasonable. I was pleased and would go again.

We visited Carino's tonight with a party of five. We were seated promptly and served by Jennifer (who was great). We all received our drinks and bread (which was awesome) within minutes of being seated. I had the chicken and sausage skilletini and it was delicious. I have to say I didn't really have high expectations but I was pleasantly... More

All the lights were on bright. I like Italian food cause it's romantic. This was 7 PM and the lights were lit like it was lunch time in a diner. The food was average Italian. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs which was a generous portion, but lacking in taste.

Service was rushed, felt like they wanted us out of there even though they weren't busy. Waitress did not suggest an appetizer, and never asked if we wanted our drinks refilled. Our food came out before we barely had time to start eating our salad or appetizer. When we were done eating she asked if we wanted to see a... More
