They have the best Spicy Shrimp & Chicken dish I've had in a long time. I always ask for extra sun dried tomatoes & sauce. Add their Caesar Salad on the side, and it's a delicious meal.

They have some small plate and appetizer options. Their bread is hot and tasty and an extensive menu.

My husband loved his chicken parmesan. He let me taste his and the chicken was cooked perfectly with a crispy crust. I wasn't too crazy about the spices in the spaghetti sauce that came with it, but my husband loved it. I wasn't that fond of the Angel Hair Pasta with artichokes, tomatoes, capers and olives that I ordered, although... More

Johnny Carino's is a rustic, Italian eatery with a fine menu offering both lunch and dinner specials, a full bar, daily soup, bread and fresh salads. We like it for special celebrations as it is a cut above many other eating spots in Missoula and staff are kind, personable and skilled. Their food is made in house before your eyes... More

The mushrooms are great and I wanted to have them twice, however I held myself back, they are a must have... The people are great and inviting make you feel right at home if that is what you want. If you are in Missaula, Mt you must visit.

I didn't expect such great food well cooked. The eggplant Parmesan and angel hair pasta were perfect. The Italian chili (more of a bean soup) was delicious! I will be back!

Have eaten here three times and the food and service have been great each time. The food was prepared fresh and was very tasty. The pasta, raviolis, and spaghetti was fresh and prepared perfect. I've had several of the meat dishes and they were also very good. Service has been very good with one of the chefs visiting to make... More

My wife ordered a seafood linguini dish, the calamari was nasty, rubbery. I ordered a ribeye, being safe,as it was our first trip there, but it was very thin cut. Not what I had envisioned. Nice people, but wasn't impressed with the food, and that is why we went there. Might try it again, but was disappointed, menu looked so... More
