Most of my road trips start and end on I-29. I usually stopover in Fargo as my last stop before home. Lately I have been staying at the Best Western Kelly Inns. Across the parking lot is Johnny Carino's. I have been there twice and have enjoyed it both times. It reminds me a little like Olive Garden but with... More

We went here because we were in the mood for pasta, and we didn't have to wait long for a table. Once seated we ordered our drinks and decided on our entrée. I ordered the Spicy Chicken and Shrimp with out the sun-dried tomatoes and it was amazing. It was a good portion for the price.

First time here. I was staying at the hotel next door so I thought I would give it a try. I was glad that I did. Sat at the bar on November 16th 2016 at noon. The Bartender/Server was great. She really did a good job. You are bought a small loaf of bread in a bag. The bread was... More

Had the 16 layer lasagne and the spinach and Gorgonzola cheese salad. Both were excellent. The service was timely and friendly.

Surprised it was so good for a chain. If the main dining room is crowded, try the bar. There's an excellent bar and great service

This is one of the best restaurants in town. Decent prices. Food is awesome. I had my rehearsal dinner here and have been here many other times. This is a great place for a first date or to have a nice dinner with friends. The bread and oil is awesome. Prices are about average, but are not too expensive. One... More

I understand on a Saturday evening, they're busy. It wasn't even that it was so busy, but we had told the guy who brought our food out to us, that was needed to leave for an emergency. He said he would get our waitress for us. I waited for over 10 minutes and my waitress never came back. I needed... More

This is our go-to restaurant whenever we visit Fargo but this time it was just average. My husband found our waiter irritating. We ordered a beverage and our dinner and it came out of the kitchen in less than 5 minutes. I ordered the Chicken Penne Gorgonzola which had a lot of penne, chicken, a mushroom soup type sauce and...

After a nice dinner in Fargo we stopped by Johnny Carino's for a "nite cap". Brenna, at the bar was very professional and a pleasant conversationalist. Its convenience to the Best Western Plus Kelly Inn made this "stop off" very convenient.

Walked here from the hotel. Met our requirement of good service and reasonable food. The iceburg salad was really tasty but huge! The pasta house special was less interesting and needed some rethinking in concept and taste. My wife loved the house cocktail and the house wine was a good deal. The beer selection left out anything good and local!
