Will always come back for more. One of the best Italian restaurants in kuwait. Has a larger variety of food than olive garden. The main course comes with a free soup/salad and dessert. My fav. Is the spicy shrimp and chicken pasta. They have half portions 👍🏼 and their nachos are yummy👍🏼

I used to go to this restaurant since it opened in Kuwait. The quality of food is less than before especially the main dishes. I tried the lunch menu and the taste less than what it used to be. The starters and desserts are average. The best thing is the bread which I really did enjoy.

We as a family go regularly to this restaurant. There is a reasonable variety and the quality of food is good, if a little expensive. The staff are very attentive and the complimentary bread and salads with the main courses is a great idea. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I used to love this place, because the quality was there.. but now.. sorry... just average. Please STOP using substandard meat and chicken with transglutaminase. Go back to your old standard.

This place is good to have breakfast or lunch or dinner with friends & families. The place is good in terms of food quality, ambience & service. However, I found this place little bit costly. Those, who are fond of Italian food, can try this restaurant. There are few options for vegetarians.

I ordered soup and chicken Marsala. When the soup arrived, no bread had been served. The waitress said it would be 2 minutes. The entrée arrived, still no bread... The chicken was really old and hard. The sauce was watery. The pasta was plain and tasteless. Either no salt in the boiling water, or just poor quality. Definitely not a... More

We as a family are big fans of Johnny Carinos and italian food. Their food is tasty and big in quantity and we love their soup and salads. But i was disappointed from their iftar buffet today. Don't get me wrong the food tastes good but the variety was very poor and not in the same quality of their regular... More
