After a couple of visits over the last 3 years, it will be hard to go back. Though the "baguette" is great, crispy on the outside, soft inside, the food is just not good. Even the soup is hard to swallow. The minestrone is quite bland and the potato soup was just plain gross. I don't even know what was... More

What used to be a great family restaurant is now utterly disappointing. For the second visit in a row the service was lacking all around. From the server to the kitchen quality this was overall a disappointment.

Chicken was sparse, dry and bland. The sauce was super thick and the noodles were so over done that they actually dissolved from the weight of the sauce. It will be a long time before I can forget that meal. I'm not sure if they meant to but it had some kind of dissolved vegetable (broccoli) but the fact that... More

Meh! I wouldn't go out of my way to get to Johnny Carino's. Granted, we got there at 3:30 pm and the place was nearly empty. The salad and appetizer was good. Then I got my entree, which was cold in the center. Plus, it seemed like it was microwaved. When I told the server, he started to argue that... More

The food at Johnny Carino's is excellent. Authentic Italian cuisine that is worth the wait. We have enjoyed the food there for over 10 years.

We visited this restaurant this week. The service was good and the food delicious. The Italian Nachos were amazing, our main course was good but could have been a little hotter.

We like this casual place, even though it is a chain. They have a very good red sauce that pleases most. Lasagna is a meat lover type, it has beef and sausage. We also tried the white, afraid sauce which was excellent.

The food was ok...nothing special. The bread was very good. Fresh and crispy. They have a wide variety of choices. Great kids menu. The service was excellent! Our waiter was on top of it. We were a party of 10. I feel the prices were just a bit high for the portion you received. Other than that it was a... More

Had the eggplant parm and it was horrible. The eggplant was a whole burnt offering. It was so tough I had a hard time cutting it with a knife ~ really? It was not eggplant it was like linoleum! Never again?

Italian food has been Americanized over the years some for the good and some not. The biggest issue with this location is the execution and quality of the food.
