“Decent food”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

This place is good for what it is... a basic Italian food chain with huge portions and decent food. Way better than an Olive Garden.

“Excellent food in a nice open atmosphere”
Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Serves classic Italian at a decent price. Dinner there was great with unlimited soup or salad option. Recommend the chicken parmesan.

“Good Italian at a reasonable price”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

Very good selection of lunch specials that included soup/salad for a few cents extra. Good service. Only problem was my eggplant parmigiana was fried a little hard and I found the pasta sauce to have a very tomato-paste taste to it (not a good marinara flavor). Fresh bread was great; hubby had the lasagna and said it was excellent. Olive Garden it ain't, but not a bad place when Italian cravings hit.

“My favorite Italian”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

If we lived a little closer, we'd probably frequent them more often. We love the food, and have always had good service. The ambiance is pretty nice. We like to get a couple of the family platters and share them so that we get to try more than one entree.

“Great Value”
Reviewed July 12, 2010

Service was great. She was the friendly and professional.
Food was good. If you like the Olive Garden, you will love Johnny Carino's. If you hate the Olive Garden, you may still like Johnny C's.
I went with brother and mother. We shared a family sized entree--half off that Monday!! We ordered salads and apps. Everything was good.
Not a place for food snobs, but great for (my) family.
