We have tried this restaurant many times, guess tooo many. It might be a small thing but they have the worst bread, very doughy, we have sent it back, but it does no good. The rest is very good, food and service. If they don't care it is there lost business. If they care please let me know.

A ncie place in a good location with easy access. We enjoy the cheesesticks with marinara here and the salads adn the ravioli and the spagheetti and the chicken parmesan. They have some different Italian dishes and it is fun to try new items. Great atmosphere and good service. A good family choice!

We went here on our brief trip to Tyler and it was wonderful. We got the baked cheese tortelloni and it was delicious! We also got the sicilian fire sticks as an appetizer. This is a great place and well worth the price!

This restaurant used to be pretty good, but it has gone downhill, especially in service. The last time we were here it, the staff seemed to be mostly teenagers and I didn't see any real adults in charge anywhere, so you can imagine the atmosphere and the attentiveness-level---lots of gossiping among the staff very little serving the guests. Wake up, management!

My wife and I have many restaurants to choose from and forgot about Carino's for some time. We finally remembered it and decided to eat there Sunday.

We ordered the Carino's Favorite Combo that has Lasagna, chicken parmigiana and spaghetti. Now, that's a lot of food so we had it split into two plates, and ordered an extra salad. While we waited for the meal, Landon, our server, brought out bread sticks and olive oil with garlic dip. That's a very good appetizer in itself!

We noticed that they played contemporary songs over their music system and not Italian music. The ambiance suffered a bit for that.

The food arrived at the right time and Landon kept our drinks filled and our bread basket, too. The food was served hot and was very delicious. This is not classic Italian cuisine but it beats a lot of the other chain Italian restaurants by a country mile. Try the Combo for a great meal, and if you want it split into two plates, they'll gladly accommodate you!
