Really like the food here. You are not short-changed by the portions they put on the plate. We have had individual dishes as well as family combination plates. Good pasta. Nice setting. Lots of seating. Really friendly wait staff. Good parking.

We had never visited (nor heard of) Johnny Carino's before and were in the mood for Italian food so decided to give it a try. Good thing we did. We ordered lunch specials called ProntoPasta. You get a selection of different pastas with soup of salad for $8.99. I tried the Spicy Shrimp and Chicken Penne and Hubby had the... More

The calamari was disgusting, I'm nit sure if it was real or some fake. Salad was awful. My husband and I have both been sick because of something we ate there.

My family and I have been fans of Carino's for many years, and have always found it to be a consistently good place to stop in for a quick Italian fix... but this was not the case at the location. We waited for at least 10 minutes to be greeted by our server, whose first words to the table was... More

My husband and I order the homemade 16-Layer Lasagna and Grilled Chicken Bowtie Festival. The Grilled Chicken Bowtie Festival was tasty. Neither of us liked the homemade 16-Layer Lasagna. Our classic Caesar salad was good but they were out of Caesar dressing so we order ranch dressing. Our service was average. We will not go back any time soon.

Went Thursday night for their baby back ribs special. They were wonderful. Since we are on a low carb diet they substituted the french fries with fresh vegetables with no extra cost. Consistently have good food. Next we are going to try their Tuesday Rib eye steak night special and see how that rates.

Asking my friend to have dinner with me at CARABBA'S, she thought I said Carino's! Therefore, we went to South Park Meadows for an early dinner. Since there was no greeter available, we seated our selves in the bar area. Prices for "1" glass of wine were ridiculously high. We checked out menu..asked for suggestions, and none were given. I...
