Poor Service, food taste canned. Won't go back. I don't know how they are still operating, last 2 visits left me with no choice but to never go back.

Went here Christmas Eve, and had a great time. Staff very fast and nice. Spicy Romano chicken pasta was A++++! Hubby had lasagna, lots of food, and he loved it. Daughter had kids Alfredo and she loved it. Great experience!

Needed a bite to eat as well as break from Day 3 at hospital sitting with relative. So glad I chose Johnny Carino's. It was pleasant, relaxing & delicious dining mid-afternoon. Sever seemed to know what I wanted & needed.

Wait staff refused to serve a group of law enforcement officers. I refuse to accept this type of behavior and will not visit this restaurant in the future.

We observed the wait staff refusing to serve Police officers in uniform. Management refused to step in, and officers calmly left to eat elsewhere. The police officers showed infinitely more class and dignity than the waiters and management of Johnny Carinos. My family and I will NEVER return. Thumbs Down. And the food isn't any good anyway.

This restaurant should not be named as an Italian restaurant because I have not tasted anything here that is true Italian. Sorry folks, just not my choice for Italian.

Pleasant atmosphere made for a most relaxing lunch. The Bowtie Festival and Lasagna were both exceptional dishes. The hostess was very friendly and guaranteed us the best of service from our waitress, Angel. The guarantee? He would personally take care of us if Angel fell short. Well, Angel did not fall short. So we will return to this place for... More

My family and I came to Carino's every Monday night for Family Night. When we first started coming, the food was excellent. As time progressed, it got worse and worse. They changed the menu and the quality of the food just wasn't as good as it was before. We found an awesome waiter and always asked for him. When he... More

our waitress was not enthusiastic to say the least. Her phone was more important than her diners. We never got a refill of soda or coffee even though we asked several times. The food was decent but not worth dealing with the staff.
