“Very Good Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Had a girls weekend in Gatlinburg. We decided to drive to Pigeon Forge for dinner and found this restaurant. We had planned on going elsewhere but the other place was packed. Went to Johnny Carino's. I had the Spicy Chicken and Shrimp . It was very good and the seasoning was perfection. One of my friend's had the Chicken Fettuccine and she wasn't that impressed and my other friend had the Lemon Pepper Salmon that she really loved.

Overall we enjoyed the atmosphere. a little too dark for my taste but typical Italian restaurant styling and "low romantic light". Our waitress was great. My only complaint is the prices. Would definitely go again to try something else.

“very good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Great atmosphere, terrific service! We had baked mushroom apps and Italian nachos apps. Both were delicious. For our entree, we had pizza (pretty good), chicken and jalapeno ravioli (delicious!), and chicken alfredo (wonderful!). Big portions, too! You'll definitely get filled up here!

“Always on point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

Took my girlfriend here on our anniversary. After spending the day wine tasting we ended up here. She's a huge Italian fan and it did not disappoint. The food is always way more than you can eat and the prices are great. Called ahead and sat us right away. Waitress was very nice and did a wonderful job.

“Great evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

After a disappointing weekend in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge this past weekend, we were unsure that we would have an enjoyable evening. However, Carino's was what we needed. Our server was on top of her game, the wait was minimal for a table, drinks, or food. The food tasted great and was very filling. We will definitely visit again if in the area.
