My hubby had raved to me about eating at Cabrinos in his home state, so when we were traveling on vacation and came across this one, we changed our dinner plans so that I could try it. I was very impressed. We had served three...More

We have always enjoyed eating at Carino's. I think the value is good and the food has yet to disappoint us. Wait staff has always been friendly. Absolutely LOVE their Italian Crème Sodas!

We got take-out the night we stayed in Boise. Great food; big portions and food stayed hot until we got it to our hotel room.
