Seeking a meal after an event we found all the local restaurants closed so we tried Carino's which is open until 10 or 11 pm depending weekday or weekend. Pleasant atmosphere and decor and help. We were pleasantly surprised by this chain. Good bread with olive oil dipping sauce. We had salads and pizza which we enjoyed.

Very friendly staff, including our waitress Heather with her charming British accent. Service was fast and prompt.

Only small complaint is: they really need to lighten up on the sauce for the pasta. My girlfriend actually couldn't finish because it was just too rich to the point of slightly unpleasant.

This Carino's is brighter and more open than others I have visited. We were overnighting in Alamogordo en route to the Trinity Site Tour in Tularosa the following morning.

Our server was prompt, attentive, and helpful. We had Italian nachos and the house-special chicken lasagna with Hatch chiles. This dish tasted really good; we were not able to finish the single-serving lasagna and nachos (to be fair, I did have salad as a side).

Have the Italian sodas if you go. The hot fresh bread with herbed oil made a fine appetizer.

This is a nice, modern Italian (chain) restaurant. It was an open floor-plan with a spacious ambiance. The food was prepared well, and very tasty. However, the bulk of the menu focused on pasta dishes, so if you are looking for that calorie/carb contained meal, you will definitely have to settle for a salad or a plain chicken breast. If memory serves me accurately, there were no steaks on the menu. Worth the visit if you are craving pasta/carbs.
