One of my favorite places to go used to be Johnny Carino's. The last few times I have been, the food has just been okay and service has been borderline awful but it was Mother's Day and my children and my parents wanted to go...More

Love the Italian Nachos and Peach Bellini. They have nightly drink specials. Love the roasted garlic with the bread and oil. The family meals are good too.

I cannot believe how rude, inconsiderate, ENTITLED the employee was. I’m concerned for the future ! Live in this community, been here for 25 years, unbelievable! Hopefully management will find the best “millennials’” to make this establishment better. So unfortunate .

I'm not a expert on Italian food but I would say it's average at best. The restaurant was pretty nice but the service wasn't spectacular. It seems like any of the big places on Mcgalliard Rd must hire from the same place. There are always...More
