The service was friendly, the menu had really good choices on it, and the prices were reasonable. We were not disappointed.

I used to love going to Johnny Carino's but with their new updates to the place and their new Bar in the center of their dining area, it seems they lost what made their place great to begin with. It was very family friendly and they are more like Applebee's now...which is not a compliment at all. I ordered the... More

Worse than frozen pasta....This dis might have used frostburn seafoods. Muscles had bad smell and calamari was soggy... After I ate some (was very hungry), ended throw up....I would give minus 0 / 10 for the dish, 6/10 for service

The food is good and service great. The only issue for me was the bar was once separated from the dining area. Now it is in the middle and has an open floor plan. Great for dports bar but not for a private dinning experience.

My favorite is chicken marsala, my husband usually gets chicken parm. but their steak is really good too. I'm not a big fan of their recent remodel (bar now much bigger)... More

Slow to sit. Noone was there and. We waited 5 min to be acknowledged and seated. I ordered the johnny s combo. Enjoyed the lasagna and the parmesan chicken. Spaghetti was fair. Wife ordered the fettuccine. Added the chicken. Not worth the upcharge. Thin slices. But she did enjoy the pasta. Service was friendly and attentive. Drinks got a little... More

My hubby and I wanted to go out for drinks & dinner. Huge disappointment, first they were out of the draft beer he ordered, then they served me a glass of very warm Cabernet.

Highly recommend! Husband and I have been coming here for a few years now and have never had a bad experience. Just a fun, "at home", friendly, very professional establishment. Along with friends and family, husband and I have never had a meal that we did not completely enjoy. We have always come for dinner only. Prices are very reasonable.
