Apparently I'm a glutten for punishment as it's always terrible and I give it one more chance. Over and over. My best guess is that they water down the alfredo sauce to save money as it is bland and as runny as milk. If you're lucky, it's at least warm. Even pilling on the fresh grated parmesan isn't helpful. They... More

My husband I thought we would give Carino's another chance. Not a fan of their menu. Figured the third time might be better and had heard the menu had a few new items. We sat in the bar, close to the back where take out orders are picked up and the wait staff must put their orders in the computer.... More

Enjoyed a delicious lunch of lasagna and spicy chicken pasta-both were very good. Greeters were friendly and we got right in. Server was prompt and efficient. Food was hot and fresh. I will go back-recommend you give it a try.

Great Italian Food, and atmosphere. From Pizza to Pasta and all meals in between you can't go wrong. You start with a nice, warm loaf of bread with a dipping sauce. Drinks a plenty and tasty appetizers and entrees. You can't go wrong with this place if you love Italian food.

Late lunch and glad we stopped in..... great drinks and very good food. Service was excellent...... she helped us decide on the food choices. The Martini s are the best in town. Price is very reasonable considering the amounts and how great they are...... don't over look this place at all.....

brought a group of 12 here for lunch - the place was about half full (we had an entire section of the restaurant to ourselves) so certainly not a big rush to deal with. took about 30 min to get drinks and bread sticks, followed about 15 or 20 min later by our soups and salads, and then after another...

My wife picked up our meals to go this trip. We've been here multiple times & usually bring out of town guests here. We love their nacho appetizer all the way! Anyway this time for me was just kind of bland to be honest. I had the spaghetti & felt it had little taste. We will show up again I'm... More

Went here couple of times. I am vegetarian and generally order Eggplant parm. By mistake they gave me chicken parm. and I took a bit of it. After this chef personally came out made sure that I had everything I want. Everyone makes a mistake, but not everyone will try hard to fix it. I'm very happy with this carino's... More

My wife and I tried Carino's on a busy Friday night. We only had to wait 5 minutes to be seated even though there were several couples in front of us. We started with the Baked Stuffed Mushrooms in lemon basil cream sauce. They were the best we have ever had. You get free bread and herbed olive oil and... More
