We enjoyed the wood oven fired pizza. The wedge salad was crisp, fresh and plentiful. We sat in the center section and the next time we go back I would request that we don't sit in that section. It is too loud for a group as you catch the noise from other guests and the kitchen. Makes it difficult to... More

I often meet friends here for lunch. Food quality is consistently excellent. I love the soups and salads as well as many of the entrees. Have never been disappointed with the food or service. Prices are reasonable.

Much better than generic Olive Garden. I like the atmosphere, the menu, the bar, and the wait staff!

Not what we expected. Food was ok. Service not ad good. Very noisy. A cup of coffee will set you back 2.49 hmm. A chain and they charge that much for coffee?

Great service and food, Even though the BSU game was finishing. Especially enjoyed the 'angel hair with artichokes and shrimp'. Plan to return soon and often.

I first ate at Johnny Carinos in Brownsville, Texas. It was wonderful! Nachos dripping with cheese, great pasta dishes and the best bread ever. I was so excited when Carinos came to Muncie but it's not really as good as the one in Texas which I visited twice. The nachos are the disappointment. The homemade chips are good but after... More

We've not dined at this restaurant, for a couple years, but my wife picked it for her 60th birthday celebration. We had a party of 11, including 3 small children. They don't accept reservations, but do have call ahead seating. Thankfully, we were promptly greeted, then seated, upon our arrival. Our server, Cassandra, was friendly and attentive. We noticed a...

This had been our second time to dine here. We came to town to pick up our student from BSU and stopped in to grab some dinner before heading out of town. The food was beyond good. It was nice to see some unique and different meals offered - items other than the traditional Italian offerings of lasagna, spaghetti and... More

Very disappointed with the food. We each had something different and we're all disappointed in our meals. The waitress was super friendly but for a very slow Friday night was not very attentive. When we were waiting for our check, she was talking with another staff member for at lease 10 min. Never came back after the first check of... More
