Our experiences at this Johnny Carino's is very mixed. The food is either great or it comes out cold and you have to send it back. One time the service is great, the next night, with a similar crowd size, the service is terrible. When it is on point, we love the place. When it misfires, we never want to... More

The quality went downhill fast and the doors finally closed last week. Maybe they will regroup and make a better effort to provide high quality food like they did when they first opened. I will miss the Italian Nachos.

The food was ok, a little bland for my taste but that's me. My husband had a salad that looked fabulously delicious. I had... More

My husband and I stayed in a hotel close to this place last week. My husband picked up the food, we were not that far away from them, and it was cold. By the time we got back to our hotel, we had to heat it up (we were 3 minutes away!). The calamari was very chewy (Olive Garden's is... More

Great Pasta dishes and good pizzas. Problem is they keep changing the menu which becomes confusing. It goes from salad included with entrees to salads alacarte
