Located off E 25th St in the heart of Idaho Falls shopping district, Carino's Italian restaurant offers variety of 'home made' Italian cuisine. A large dinning room offers tables as well as private booth, and a sports bar like seating arrangements. Our waitress was efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. we chose two full chef meals for $25 ~ and were not disappointed; potato soup arrived quickly while still hot. It was a delicious combination of potatoes, green onions, and lemony thick broth served in a European style dish, topped with croutons - great! While my wife feasted on an excellent eggplant parmesan, I chose a spicy main pasta entrée topped with shrimp and broiled chicken. Neither meal was greasy, quite the contrary; both were well prepared and tasted authentically Mediterranean. Our desserts were miniatures Tiramisu was mostly whipped cream - not proportionate to the amount of other ingredients due to the size of the serving dish. The only negative comment concerns the state of the men's room which was dirty. Furthermore, only one faucet (out of two) was in working order and there were no towels; this is especially unacceptable since we were there for an early dinner (4PM).
