Not what we expected. Food was ok. Service not ad good. Very noisy. A cup of coffee will set you back 2.49 hmm. A chain and they charge that much for coffee?

Great service and food, Even though the BSU game was finishing. Especially enjoyed the 'angel hair with artichokes and shrimp'. Plan to return soon and often.

I first ate at Johnny Carinos in Brownsville, Texas. It was wonderful! Nachos dripping with cheese, great pasta dishes and the best bread ever. I was so excited when Carinos came to Muncie but it's not really as good as the one in Texas which I visited twice. The nachos are the disappointment. The homemade chips are good but after... More

We've not dined at this restaurant, for a couple years, but my wife picked it for her 60th birthday celebration. We had a party of 11, including 3 small children. They don't accept reservations, but do have call ahead seating. Thankfully, we were promptly greeted, then seated, upon our arrival. Our server, Cassandra, was friendly and attentive. We noticed a...

This had been our second time to dine here. We came to town to pick up our student from BSU and stopped in to grab some dinner before heading out of town. The food was beyond good. It was nice to see some unique and different meals offered - items other than the traditional Italian offerings of lasagna, spaghetti and... More

When we were waiting for our check, she was talking with another staff member for at lease 10 min. Never came back after the first check of... More

I had classic lasagna and a wedge salad. The food was very good and the service was great. I went mid afternoon and it wasn't crowded. At noon and evenings the place is jumping.

Great menu and good service but the food for everyone was too salty! Our group of 8 wondered if they had used MSG! We all liked this restaurant in past years but this year wondered if something has changed with management! We probably will to return in 2017!
