Visited for lunch on a weekend. Despite the fact it was not crowded (almost as many employees as customers), we had to wait for everything: 10 minutes before we were asked for drink orders, another 10 minutes until they were delivered, then another 10 minutes before the server asked for food orders ... you get the pattern. The kicker was... More

BJ's had a long wait so we came here. Waitress was kind, but it was super slow and the food was average. Bathrooms not that clean either.

I have reviewed this place before with average ratings. My daughter for her birthday dinner wanted to return to this restaurant. She ordered off the kids menu and come to find out after waiting 15 mins her selection was not available because the pizza oven was not working. No big deal... she selected another item off the kids menu. 3... More

Was quite disappointed in the quality of the food at Carino's. I have visited another location and didn't remember it being this way. The service was great and the staff were plenty friendly. The food however was just bland and without much flavor.

We typically love Carino's; however, the College Station location was a huge disappointment. The food was very bland and the service was non existent. Upon leaving the restaurant, several of the waitstaff were playing around which led to one of the servers running into me, stepping on my feet and nearly knocking me down.

Family dinner to celebrate a birthday. The calamari was cooked perfectly. The lasagna was excellent - great flavors - pasta cooked perfectly.

Seated quickly with call ahead seating. Nothing exciting about the menu or staff. When comparing chain Italian restaurants, Olive Garden is way better. Kids were satisfied, but I went away still wishing for more. My wife and I shared the three meat pizza and a chopped salad. Nothing bad to say, but nothing to get excited for.

We were so hungry after driving to College Station to visit our student. We were seated right away. The place is family and student friendly. The place has a good decor and ambiance. Our orders are taken and we were given each glass of water. Laura was our server. She was friendly and an excellent server. Their bread was served... More

We waited about 1 hour 20 minutes for our food after we ordered for a table of 8. I talked with the manager and she was less than sympathetic. The food is less than average for an Italian restaurant.

This was not a particularly good visit to Johnny Carino's. While the service was friendly and fairly efficient, and the food was decent but not exceptional, the place was loud and crowded, with the tables pushed close together. It just wasn't a pleasant dining experience.
