“just average food”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I don't care for this place. The atmosphere is great, but the food is not. My husband and son had lasagna and it was a very small portion. I had the chicken and bow tie pasta. The plate was huge, but the food wasn't good. I won't go back.

“Catering”
Reviewed July 19, 2012 via mobile

I don't know if there is somewhere else to write a review about catering but what I do know is it is marvelous. Manny is THE BEST. We could ask him any question and he knew anything that we asked. Being in the restaurant business, all I can say is he knows exactly what he's doing. I think this is a great place all together

“Always great.”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We were tired of seafood, so we chose Carino's for some Italian food. Always a good choice. Love the Italian Nachos.

“Really good food, and excellent service”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

My family and I had an early supper there 4-12-12, the server was very fast and friendly, the food was excellent, fresh salads, great calamari for an appetizer, and my lasagna was top notch. I'd recommend this restaurant to everyone.

“High Noise & OK food, crowds, waits...”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

It's ok. Been there lots but it can have waiting lines [go directly to bar and you can eat there too ... right at the bar...]. Been to a few monthly wine tastings which are great and inexpensive. Just wear ear plugs and be in a joyful mood or you will get frustrated. Its a friendly place, wait staff is great. Chef comes out sometimes. Food is just every day italian.
