A good Italian restaurant with a good range of the standard dishes. We were there for a party of twenty people. The waitress did a good job at service. The food was good too. Nothing spectacular, but certainly a good experience.

I usually eat here at least once a month. I love the food, the atmosphere, and the service. The waitstaff is always very accommodating and pleasant.

My husband and I stopped at Carino's for lunch. We split a lunch order of grilled chicken bow tie pasta and we each got a side Caesar salad for only $1.00 a piece. Food was delicious and we were served in minutes! Great food, fast...More

We came to this restaurant after the first walk-through of our new home in Meridian. Obviously a family place but the amount of kids acting out was tolerable. The food was first rate and the server was very attentive but not obtrusive. Being a chef...More

This place used to be my favorite. Now it is just okay. I think that the recipes are stale and the regular prices (without a coupon) are about $13. per entree, which is a lot! For people for dinner, with only two having soda and...More

I've eaten at this chain in 3 different states. The food is always good - the olive oil with garlic to dip your fresh bread in is great! At this location I've eaten in the bar area and the main seating area. Twice in the...More

Positives: Stuffed Mushroom appetizer was excellent. Unlike other Americanized "Italian" places, the mushrooms here were tasty, well-filled and could be found on the plate without tweezers & a microscope (a common profit-booster). Plenty of cheese, garlic & other filling, and mushrooms were cooked properly. If...More

This used to be a nice place and while food is good the level of service has declined. Ordered drinks and didn't even get waters until after salads and main meal headed out. No top off and never checked to see if everything was okay....More
