Depending on when you visit it is hit or miss on service. My visit this last time was not well waiter was in quite a hurry and treated me like I was bothering him and restaurant was empty just opened half hour before. My silverware was dirty and my salad plate was dirty, sure he came back with the issue... More

If you are an Italian food lover like me, this is the place to go to in Brownsville, Texas. The food is excellent, the environment is nice and cozy, the service is great too. I recommend a Bellini to drink (yummy), and I also recommend the Chicken Milano, the Spicy Shrimp and Chicken, and the Calamari as an appetizer. The... More

Had had a terrible experience a couple of weeks before but decided to give it another opportunity. Orders were taken almost as soon as we arrived. After a while of not getting our food or drinks called a waiter and reordered including our beverages. Yet for the second time we got nothing. Finally I requested to speak to manager she... More

Quite honestly the food here is atrocious. If this is anyone's actual idea of what It a l Ian food is they are extremely mistaken. The food is obviously frozen, not fresh, pre made and reheated to be served.Don't think by eating here you actually have tasted Italian food because you have not.

I come here fairly often. The food always great. You get bread and olive oil to dip it in while you wait for your food. There is a good selection from which to pick and the prices are not too bad, entrees start from $12+ with the most expensive being the steak or family platters. They have great specials on... More

The food was very good, the service was very slow, had to wait for drinks, for salad, again for drink refills. I doubt I will be back because of the poor service. Ok if you are not in any kind of rush

If you like pasta, this is a good place to visit. They start you off with freshly baked bread and seasoned olive oil with crispy garlic nuggets for dipping. Lunch combos are reasonable. Monday nights are half price family platters, which is a good deal. Dinner portions can be shared. We like the bow tie pasta, spicy Romano, Italian nachos,... More

Being vegetarians, Italian food is a good option for us, especially when travelling. We had to transit Brownswille on our way to Mexico and we stopped at Carinos for lunch. The bread took some time to arrive but it was fresh and hot - it was really good. We ordered for our favorite Egg plant parmesan - they have a... More
