We've been here a few times and we have always had good food, good service. My only real complaint about the place is that it can be very dark inside. I like to be able to read my menu!

Ate at Carinos on a Thursday night. Stella did a great job taking care of our group. Everyone at the table enjoyed their food. The mini desserts were delicious.

We have eaten at this place three or four times previously over the last 3.5 years and until now, always had enjoyed a good experience and a great meal. Sadly, this was NOT the case yesterday. To begin with, we were seated at a "table" the size of a postage stamp, and had to ask to be moved to another... More

Good family dining for Italian food. My favorite is the bowtie pasta and we all love the bread and dipping oil. Also love the peach belinis.

Think of Johnny Carino's as an Applebee's with a traditional Italian-American menu. My wife and I visited for dinner a few nights ago. We began with salads. I had a very nicely prepared Caesar while my wife had a well made garden salad. For our entrees I ordered spaghetti and meatballs and she had lasagna. The portions were huge, so... More

Carino's offers a warm atmosphere and above average service. The menu has something for most taste buds and desert is much above average.

Can't go wrong with the bread and dipping oil here. The lightly breaded and lightly fried calamari was excellent. It wasn't rubbery at all! Salmon salad was delicious as well.

Four of us ate dinner here. I ordered the Chicken Parmesan,The chicken portion was good size favor was ok, the breading was so so, The real disappointment was the spaghetti, it was maybe lukewarm at best and the sauce was nothing special. One of my business associates had spaghetti & meatballs and he said his spaghetti was hot, so I... More

Carino's finally has a decent gluten-free menu. There is a GF spaghetti pasta and a pizza crust available, so you can have most of the pasta dishes and pizza. I didn't read the fine print about cross-contamination risk, but I can tolerate some, so I wasn't concerned. There is even a dessert, chocolate lava cake, that is GF. I asked... More

I don't think I have ever been disappointed at Carinos! I love the Italian Nachos and I LOVE the bread with the dipping oil....If I could I would make a meal out of that alone. The atmosphere is cozy and not loud. The service is good. Many good choices on the menu!
