The booths seat 6 which is wonderful and their is a lot of space in this restaurant. The service was wonderful. I had the lobster ravioli and of course mini deserts. The kids loved their children meals (real pizza) and ice cream sundae's. The place was a hit. Right next to the mall so we also got to shop.

Very pleased with our waitress who was very accommodating and pleasant. Our food was prepared the way we ordered and everyone was pleased with the flavor. We will return again.

My daughter and I stopped for a quick dinner after travelling all day, neither was hungry but needed a little something. She ordered minestrone soup and claims it was the best that she ever had!! We both had pasta, which also was pretty good. Server (Harry) was very friendly and efficient. We initially just wanted soup/salad but didn't see any... More

My friend and I ate at Johnny Carrino's today, it was my first time and overall we are dissatisfied with the meal, the server was nice but the meal started with an okay Calamari but the wine glass was filthy which is not a good thing. The entrees were mediocre at best and they were "short on silverware" so we... More

Johnny's never disappoints. I highly recommend eating here, if you like good Italian food. This is a must go to place every time we are in Lexington. We have NEVER had a bad meal here, and we have eaten here a lot. Be sure not to fill up on the bread, because you won't be able to finish the meal.... More

This family friendly Italian restaurant is great! My daughter and I shared the Chicken Parm and my husband got steak. We were all very satisfied. I really like the bread and seasoned oil dip:) The waiter was excellent. He was always ready to refill my drink, and was very tentative even though they were busy. OH and we didn't have... More

We found this Johnny Carino's consistent with others we visited. We ordered takeout and service was very good, although they got our salad order wrong (which we figured out only after we'd arrived home). If you're in the mood for mass market style Italian food, you probably will not be disappointed.

We ordered the bowtie festiva and spaghetti and meatballsl. The food got to our table fast but it was warm. There was a hunk of chicken breast in my dish that had not been chopped up. We did have mozzarella sticks and they were very good. It had me excited about our meal but it was not very good.

I love lasagna and I try it everywhere I find it on a menu. This restaurant had a very good lasagna. Good atmosphere and good value. I enjoyed it very much. Good service and fast service.
