My family and I went to Carino's for an early dinner not knowing anything about the place, and we were absolutely blown away with how good the food is here. We started with a brie appetizer and some house bread. The pesto that came on the brie was spot on. Just delicious! The house salad was just some lettuce and... More

I had chicken Marcella and my wife had linguini with mussels, clams, scallops, calamari. Both meals were excellent, salads were good. Meals were hot and timely. Staff were friendly. Carino's isn't a good choice for a meal.

As soon as we walked in through the door the smell was wonderful. For the appetizer we ordered the stuffed portobello and it was phenomenal. For dinner I ordered the shrimp and crab special with the pink sauce. It was the best pasta dish I have ever had. My husband ordered the Veal Ossobuco and he absolutely loved it he... More

My husband and I had a wonderful quite candlelight dinner one late night on a weekday. The wine selections were good and we were not rushed as we sat for awhile before ordering. THe server was Italian and very helpful in recommending dishes. I ordered a White Linguine Clam Pasta and my husband ordered Lasagna. The dishes came out so... More

I have eaten here twice last year and once yesterday while on vacation. Simply, this place has great food. The veal saltimbocca was prepared right (pounded very thin); side pasta also great. Seafood is fresh and portions are decent. The veal milanese is a win, too. Highly recommended.

Carino's was always on our list of restaurants we must visit when in town.Our last two visits have been average at best. Unfortunately we will not be back. The food is still decent but not excellent as it used to be.

It had been a few years since we had gone to Carino's for a meal. In the past, Carino's service and food was out of this world. So we decide to have dinner there last night. OMG! What a disappointment!!! The service, the drinks and food was nothing like it used to be. I am sorry to say, but we... More

Excellent food, drink and service. If you want fine Italian dining on the beach, this is a good place.
