“Very nice Italian place....on 97”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Go to this place and take advantage of "family night" -- family size portions at half the regular price.....and really good pasta/wine.

“Why go to a chain when there are many other offerings in Bend?”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Let's face it. This place is a chain restaurant serving pasta and pizza. There are so many other fabulous LOCAL eateries in town, I would go there first. Food is fine if your in the mood for restaurant chain food.

“You have to eat here when you are visiting Bend!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We did not know this was a chain restaurant or we probably wouldn't have gone. Our hotel offered 10% off and we almost didn't go because we thought they were desperate for business. Haha.. We were tired after a 7 hour drive so we looked it up online and we saw they had a new gluten free menu. Wow the food was incredible. We ordered the shrimp and chicken spicy pasta with extra spice. The chicken was moist and tender, the shrimp was cooked perfectly. The gluten free pasta was perfectly made. However to top that all off the server we had named Fabiola, ask for her! Was just perfect! Very knowledgeable about the food and any questions we had she found out if she didn't know. The attention to detail was incredible. We had after dinner drinks that were brought to our table in heated glasses sitting on warm water by the bartender. I can tell you we are from California were we have top notch restaurants and we had such a wonderful experience that we have no desire to go anywhere else next time we are in Bend. Thank god we didn't follow our first impressions.

“A Brilliant Pizza”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

I ordered "Johnny's Pizza" from the bar menu and it was great. Perfec or one person. The house made pizza sauce was as rich and tasty as any I've ever had. The toppings were bacon (!), olives, roma tand gorgonzola and they worked wonderfully together (also supposed to include carmelized pecans (??) themto hold those and am just as glad I did. Can't speak to the rest of the meu, but the pizza was great and an excellent deaust $8.

“great fod and service”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This was our first time at a Johnny Carino's so we weren't sure what it was like other than our room menu and it sounded good. The server was super nice, he noticed our Sturgis shirts so we got talking motorcycles.The food doesn't come with salad or soup like olive garden but we did get breadsticks.That's the good news because I had the chicken parmigan and it was so good I was glad I wasn't full from the other stuff. Husband had spaghetti and meatballs.He really liked it, I had a bite of his & it had a lot of flavor.We walked away stuffed and happy for trying a new restaurant.
