Had a late lunch here. Have to say the service was excellent. Attentive without being intrusive. Food was quickly prepared, at the right temperature and presentation was good. MOST importantly, my personal mark of a good restaurant--a spotless restroom. Found it!

My family and I had lunch today at Johnny Carino's. We had an awesome time. Our server was awesome. The hostess was so attentive and great with kids. The lunch specials are great and come with unlimited salad. Our kids love the kid meals too.
