Good food (some dishes a little pricey), just really bad service. I asked for a bottle of ketchup and our server said they only had one. Then the young server took off to find it, only to return with an empty bottle. Service in the bar was worse. Our group waited over 15 minutes before flagging down a server to take drink orders. All around bad experience. Havent been back and dont know that I will even though during there bar re-opening I won free pizza every week for a year. Just not worth the poor service.

We had a party of eight. We could barely hear our colleagues sitting next to us, much less across the table. The service was non-existent. The manager came by at one point and we told him the service wasn't great, but it didn't improve. Some of the good was well prepared; some of it was served cold.

We have been coming to this Carino's for over 5yrs, and when we first started coming to this restaurant this service, food, and atmosphere was Wonderful... Now this place is a Joke, the cooks are decent, but the waiters are horrible, walking around checking their personal cell phones, caring on playful conversations amongst themselves while customers are waiting for their refills and their food... I saw food sit waiting for over 5 minutes before the server went to pick it up to give to the customer... Really, the restaurant was about 1/3 full... My vote for this place is about 1 1/2 star... Thus place has really went down...

The staff was very good, they made me feel as though I was the only person there, as I'm sure they did with all of the other guests having lunch that day. The timing was perfect between the soup (Minestrone) and the entree. The food was excellent, I had the Rosemary and Lemon chicken and it was cooked perfectly as was the pasta and steamed asparagus. What a wonderful was to spend lunch on a busy day. They also offer Take out.

This place is a hidden gem for Happy Hour. Happy Hour 3PM to Close. Great Drink Specials and Appetizers. The food is off the charts. Including a 10" Pizza for $3.00. Great service, great food, great prices. Check out their website for the details.
