“Good Service, Steak not served properly”
Review of Carino's

Carino's
Ranked #919 of 4,245 Restaurants in Cairo
Price range: US$5 - US$10
Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 October 2013

This restaurant is from the same group as Chili's in Cairo, so similarly the service is much the same as Chili's. Both have good and efficient service. I ordered a 11 ounce rib eye with pepper sauce vegetable and potatoes, a trio combination of appetizers and lasagna. The trio appetizer was very good, consisting of crispy calamari, fried and breaded mozzarella and a beef spring roll in a red wrapper. The lasagna came in very dry, obviously reheated and the steak came out swimming in mushroom sauce, which is not what I requested (requested for pepper sauce). The taste of the steak was complete over powered by too much sauce it was soaking in, plus there was no trace at all of any potatoes on the side dish. The only thing good on the thing s we had was the crispy calamari.

I've tried carino's twice, once in Golf, Porto Marina and the other is in Tivoli Dome Zayed.

Both experiences were not good at all.

In Golf Porto Marina, the food was REALLY not fresh, it tasted like, it's yesterday's left over, and not even well heated.

In Tivoli DOme Zayed branch, the dishes did not taste good at all, very poor quality.

Of course, quality does not at ALL match with the very high prices.

The place also in Golf Porto Marina was not clean.

One of the very remarkable factors for me to judge a place's cleanliness being a hygiene freak, is how clean their bathroom and kitchen is, but especially the bathroom as you cannot usually have access to the kitchen.

In golf porto marina branch, I remember that the bathroom was quite disgusting.

I wouldn't go there again in either of its branches.

A great chain of italian restaurants... Very good chicken platters.. try the balsamic one (worth a try). The pasta is ok... vine leaves could be better if served a little warmer.

Nice Italian food with good variety , you could however probably find better places for Italian. Price range is bit expensive though compared to other restaurants

Since they started taking on tour groups, quality has suffered greatly (sometimes they won't even bring you a glass... instead you get a disposable plastic cup). Only go if you have hours to wait around for a meal.
