Great ambiance would lead one to think they're about to eat some great food. Not so at this restaurant. The food tasted as though it were pulled out of the freezer and then doused with garlic, oregano, and basil to make it seem more Italian.

The roasted garlic oil with the complimentary bread is really the only reason to go. You can find better Italian entrees in the freezer section of the grocery store.

At least the waitstaff were kind.

This place was great! We did not have to wait long at all to get a table. The Server Aaron was one of the best servers I have experienced in Louisiana in the past 8 months. The food was phenomenal. I can honestly say the only problem I had with this location was deciding what to eat. Great choices!

The food is just like any other Carino's. It's perfectly fine. This location is well-run. It's clean, and the staff is prompt and pleasant. And that makes ALL the difference

Lasagna and cake were terrible. Bread and chicken parmesan was average.
