My pasta dish was an oily mess. Manager was extremely rude and an unprofessional bully. When I asked for the horrible lunch dish to be taken off the bill, the manager lectured me about his food cost because I had eaten the four shrimp at the top of the pasta bowl and left the rest. UNBELIEVABLE and insane.

Went here twice with friends. Really not very authentic Italian. Service was OK, food decent but nothing to write home about. Atmosphere was good.

We were the only ones seated in the bar area at first. The bartender was our waitress as well as the whole side we were on. It started picking up and we had to ask for more bread, refills. She apologized saying there needed to be 5 of her to cover the whole area. The servings were dismal compared to... More

After a couple of visits over the last 3 years, it will be hard to go back. Though the "baguette" is great, crispy on the outside, soft inside, the food is just not good. Even the soup is hard to swallow. The minestrone is quite bland and the potato soup was just plain gross. I don't even know what was... More

What used to be a great family restaurant is now utterly disappointing. For the second visit in a row the service was lacking all around. From the server to the kitchen quality this was overall a disappointment.

Chicken was sparse, dry and bland. The sauce was super thick and the noodles were so over done that they actually dissolved from the weight of the sauce. It will be a long time before I can forget that meal. I'm not sure if they meant to but it had some kind of dissolved vegetable (broccoli) but the fact that... More

Meh! I wouldn't go out of my way to get to Johnny Carino's. Granted, we got there at 3:30 pm and the place was nearly empty. The salad and appetizer was good. Then I got my entree, which was cold in the center. Plus, it seemed like it was microwaved. When I told the server, he started to argue that... More

The food at Johnny Carino's is excellent. Authentic Italian cuisine that is worth the wait. We have enjoyed the food there for over 10 years.

We visited this restaurant this week. The service was good and the food delicious. The Italian Nachos were amazing, our main course was good but could have been a little hotter.

We like this casual place, even though it is a chain. They have a very good red sauce that pleases most. Lasagna is a meat lover type, it has beef and sausage. We also tried the white, afraid sauce which was excellent.
