We used Johnny Carino's to cater an after burial luncheon. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the way they treated us. We contacted them with only a couple of days notice and they helped to put together an amazing lunch after a difficult family loss. They were gracious, kind, and had a heartfelt understanding of what we were going... More

My son and I were seated on arrival and while not a booth, the table we were seated at was quiet enough to carry on a decent conversation. Our server was prompt and kept our drinks filled throughout our meal. The dishes were good and the servings large enough, we each had a to go box. Near hotels if you... More

The restaurant was right across the street from our hotel and that worked out great. The food was awesome and the service was superb. The prices are very reasonable, and like other people have said, it is better than a chain restaurant such as Olive Garden (not that, that is bad). But we truly enjoyed it. If we're in Bozeman...

We ate here because our first choice was crowded, and we were glad we did. It was sort of like Olive Garden, but much better. For one thing you have a choice of salad dressing, and the endless bread was better. I had the BEST chicken pasta dish ever! My son had pasta with meatballs which he really liked. Would... More

We dined here twice as , like another reviewer, we had no car and there were only 2 options within walking distance of our hotel, both chains and this happening to be one.

Well, we're happy you discovered us! We wish your entrees would've measured up more -- we're glad you were such a big fan of the soup, though. Taylor is certainly a pro, and we're lucky to have her! If you're ever in town again, we'd love to have you by for another visit! Take care. -Johnny Carino's More

Every visit we are pleased with whatever we choose to eat. I especially love their Alfredo. The bread is delicious. We often choose this as a meeting place with friends in the area as they can easily accommodate larger groups.

Food the same as other Carino's, some folks like chains some do not. But it was as good as any other (hot, tasted good, cold beer).

We were stuck without a car overnight and this restaurant was close to our hotel. We enjoyed the lasagna (tons of cheese) and spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs were delicious and were hand-made. While the bread was not the hard-crust, chewy on the inside Italian bread we're used to, it was served with olive oil with some herbs and garlic,... More

Had dinner here on a Sunday evening - the restaurant was not crowded but they appeared to not have enough wait staff. Service was very, very slow as our waiter seemed to be responsible for about 10 different tables - he worked hard but we still had very long waits getting drinks, refills, bread or any service.
