We stopped going to J.C. because the food had taken a turn for the worse several years ago... the food tasted more Spanish inspired than Italian. We decided to give it a go again after Olive Garden was having a 30 minute wait. So to start the table was so small that with four of us and drinks there was... More

Have had lunch & dinners in several other locations and experienced better food prep at other locations...food not 'terrible' here by any means, but question the 'freshness' and quality of this locations food prep.

You might think that for the money, you couldn't expect much. But Johnny Carino's is above average and flavor, quality, price and service. I would not hesitate to take a date here for dinner, or a business associate. The pastas and sauces are tasty the breads exceptional and the wine choices are adequate.

I came here for business dinner with my customers and colleagues. The food was great and the alcohol selection was nice. I had a Italian Pork Roast, and it was really tasty. Others ordered pasta and my customers ordered steak, and they loved it. It was great Italian place to dine in town.

My husband and I enjoyed our meal but felt it was a bit pricey for what you get. Nothing comes with the entree except bread, which is served warm with a nice dipping oil that is their own recipe. He ordered the lasagna, which was delicious but just an average sized serving for $14.99. I ordered the chicken and sausage... More

As Bend residents, we try to make a monthly visit to Carino's on Monday...family....night. We've never been disappointed; that's why we keep going back.

In the last month, we have eaten dinner and hosted lunches at Johnny Carino's Italian Grill. I appreciate the attentive staff, the fabulous gluten free options and the great prices. My favorite is the GFree version of the GRILLED CHICKEN BOWTIE FESTIVAL! Bowtie sautéed with sliced chicken, bacon, garlic, red onions, Roma tomatoes, asiago and cream sauce. I do not... More

Food was good, really good actually. But the appearance of an earwig was disturbing. The waiter was doing well with our group of 11 even though it was only his 3rd day on the job. They gave us dessert to compensate for the bug but we did not really want dessert. It was disturbing. But obviously not normal.

I have been to Johnny Carinos about 4 times now for happy hour. Most happy hour dishes in Bend are skimpy to say the least. At this restaurant you get your money's worth. I was there recently with friends and had the meatball grinder that comes with homemade potato chips. This was a full size sandwich and was really tasty... More
