We saw many negative reviews about this place, one even saying Olive Garden was better. We've eaten in many Olive Gardens and no longer do. The majority cut corners in terms of cheese, sauce and freshness. It's like fast food Italian. Carinos is different. Our...More

Went to this restaurant for a company Christmas lunch. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. There were around 30 of us, so I understand that it's difficult to host large parties, but I sat there while everyone else got their food, and mine didn't...More
