We were referred here by our hotel and it did not live up to our expectations. The somewhat Italian menu seemed to be prepackaged and not at all homemade. Not very tasty Lobster ravioli and overcooked pasta. Had to make a special request for no garlic on the bread and it took forever to get out of the oven. Kids running around unattended and noisy did not make for a pleasant meal.

Can't beat the value when you come in on a Monday. Place is busy and the staff is a little slow, but expected. Our waitress did a great job and the food was delicious. Definitely recommend the Chicken Gorgonzola.

I like Carino's because of the Italian atmosphere and their food are pretty generous in terms of portion. My only concern is that, even though we asked about spices, the parmigiana came very spice for us. Great but hot!!!

The food and service was very good, we both ordered entrees but ended up dividing his lunch portion of Tilapia w/ jalapeño cream sauce. It was a very large portion and delicious!!

While the food was acceptable the attitudes were horrible. I ordered a shot and a beer, and was almost thrown out. Apparently you can only have one thing at a time. I operate a liquor licensed establishment in the same state, and know it is not a State requirement. I like a shot of tequila chased with a small beer. Should I be taken out back and shot for that?

Thank aspenron
