Nice Italian restaurant. The service and food were both good for a good price. Close to lots of shopping.

Slow service, very bad food choices. This place was excellent years ago when it was "Johnny Carinos". When the name changed, so did the quality.

Met with a girlfriend for Happy hour. Their happy hour is all day long in the bar. They have some great drink specials and appetizers. The bartender was our server. He was very attentive. We had a great time. Highly recommended.

We went here or celebrate a bday and had a great time. This was my first time here and loved the food. Our waitress was really nice and joyful to have. The bday person in our group received a decent sized sundae also.

A good Italian restaurant with a good range of the standard dishes. We were there for a party of twenty people. The waitress did a good job at service. The food was good too. Nothing spectacular, but certainly a good experience.
