Johnnys – So Johnny Carino's? I think not. Restaurants like this one are a dime a dozen. Authentic, not really. Basically a more expensive Olive Garden that spices entrees enough to ruin them. Good Idea? No, been there, done that. Let this corporate restaurant make its money and leave. Be glad you didn't go there.
Let's eat – I did not find this restaurant to be romantic. It does have a nice atmosphere, but the food at Olive Garden is better when comparing Italian restaurants.
Just a typical Italian Chain – I wouldn't say that JC's was the most romantic place in the Duke City. There are places, such as the Indigo Crow and Casa Vieja in Corrales that are a romantic get away from this city. Plus the food there is the chef's original style and it is seasonal too. While JC's is nice to go to when you crave italian over Olive Garden or Carrabas, I cast my vote to the local "hole's in the wall" for romantic wining and dining. And the prices are about the same for lunch or dinner.
Poor Excuse for Italian Food – I myself come from NY and an Italian and this restaurant was far from being good in my opinion. I didnt like the sauce and the cheese in my manicotti was just not right. They need to get some tips from Mario's!!!
pizza for the pip-squeeks – Johhny Carino's Italian Kitchen has great food. We Have had company in from Minnesota and they truly loved everything about this establishment. They are waiting and drooling over the possible opening of a Johnny Carino's in their area. The kids LOVED the pizza! I love a place I can go and eat what I want while the kids really enjoy their food too! That makes for a truly enjoyable eating experience.
YUMMY! :) – Carino's has very good food, plus can be a romantic place to eat.
Best eats – The bezt pork chops I have ever had!!! The staff is very friendly and knowledgable!!!
FriendofTerrys – My best friend and I have eaten there twice, and the food was fiklling and delicious!!! We also happen to know a manager there.
