Came here on vacation and the salad was great. The fresh bread with the seasoned oil was amazing and the Spicy chicken and shrimp with noodles and an amazing sauce with the peppers and tomatoes it was great. The decor was very cozy and the fire place was beautiful. The service was cheerful and courteous.

Friendly wait staff. Clean dining area. Very tasty food. Large portions. Pricing is a little higher than moderate. I would recommend Carino's.The lasagna is delicious.

The food was really good, came out hot. I have a picky eater & he really liked the spicy alfredo. The bread was a hit. We enjoyed the atmosphere & our waitress was amazing.

9-14-2023 0ur group of 53 was served fairly quickly. 6 people at tables for 4. ? Coffee refills were not gonna happen. Lasagna was dry on the ends. ☹️ (Was this a Diamond thing again?)

This was my second time dining here. I had the bow tie 5 meat pasta. I personally didn’t like the green bell pepper pieces in the pasta. They were crunchy and seemed to take away from the dish. The pasta was a little to chewy for my taste. The flavor was great otherwise. The service is what really annoyed me. There were only two seated tables when we were there and I couldn’t get a refill on my water. I never saw the waitress after food came out. I walked up to waitress station in front of kitchen where another lady was doing silverware with my empty cup and asked for more water. She motioned me to wait a minute and finally our waitress reappeared with a coke not a water. Three minutes later I finally had a refill on my water. So the service sucked but the food was decent I just got something new and unfamiliar to me.


I'd been interested by this place by the way it looks inviting outsideSo I went today and the entire staff was very warm in greeting me and my server Morgan was very personable and attentiveI got the timballo with both meats and boy was it just outstanding and huge and stayed hot forever it seemed, it was 20 dollars but worth every cent if you ask meI don't remember the last time I was this impressed with a restaurant for the first time, very very good experience

First time visiting Jonny Carino's and would definitely go back. I stepped outside my box and tried something new. The spicy shrimp and chicken pasta was absolutely amazing. My partner got the appetizer trio and was very pleased with it. We were sat right away and the service was good.

We miss having a Johnny Carino's in Knoxville, so we visit this location when we we're in Pigeon Forge and craving Italian. The serving sizes are huge! We always have enough for 2 meals. The service was a little scattered during our recent visit. Our assigned waitress only came over a couple times. She was stretched a little too thin and let our drinks run out on a couple occasions. The food was delicious as usual.

This place was very good!! But with good food and good service comes a price and given the location and all $54.00 wasn't that bad for 2 people. I'd come hungry, the food grows with every

While vacationing in the Smokies, my husband and I wanted an evening out, and we opted for here. We tried it once at home in Michigan and it was the worst but we have it a shot here. Best service and good food. Samen was our server and the best we could have asked for. Attentive and just all around fantastic. I don't expect much for a server when a restaurant is busy but we never noticed because he was so on top of things. He just made the experience fabulous. This guy was just tops! Thank you for making our experience a good one.

This was a surprise. Fantastic Italian restaurant. The ravioli was good but the bacon, macaroni and cheese was absolutely phenomenal! We’re gonna have to come back here again! The bread they serve is soft and fluffy. Yummmmm

We don’t have a Johnny Carino’s where I’m from anymore so stopping in to this location was a must when we got into town. The Sizzling Skilletini with Italian sausage was the best dish I’ve had the whole week while visiting the area. The service was quick and friendly too, definitely recommend!

Great food and service here! The bread and food are much better than olive garden.

This was one of the best restaurants we dined at! The food came in 10 minutes after ordering!! We got sat by the bar which was super private and quiet and made for a good time. The food was DELICIOUS!!! Hot and fresh home made sauce!!Our waiter was the bartender Brad and he was the sweetest!! He was super helpful with choosing menu items and even gave us a few options of what trails to hike! Will definitely come back and eat here our next trip!! ?
