We enjoyed a Valentine's Special: one appetizer, 2 salads, 2 entrées, 2 mini-desserts, beverages and bread for $29.99. Great service. My only comment is that all the courses came too close together. The arrival should be timed better. This is a great restaurant, nice decor, and always big portions. The lasagna was easily big enough for two.

Second time at this restaurant. Better than the first time. I had the sausage skillet dinner and it was the bomb. The family also enjoyed their entrees and deserts. We sat in quiet alcove and the service was Devine.

We enjoyed the wood oven fired pizza. The wedge salad was crisp, fresh and plentiful. We sat in the center section and the next time we go back I would request that we don't sit in that section. It is too loud for a group as you catch the noise from other guests and the kitchen. Makes it difficult to... More

I often meet friends here for lunch. Food quality is consistently excellent. I love the soups and salads as well as many of the entrees. Have never been disappointed with the food or service. Prices are reasonable.

Much better than generic Olive Garden. I like the atmosphere, the menu, the bar, and the wait staff!

Not what we expected. Food was ok. Service not ad good. Very noisy. A cup of coffee will set you back 2.49 hmm. A chain and they charge that much for coffee?

Great service and food, Even though the BSU game was finishing. Especially enjoyed the 'angel hair with artichokes and shrimp'. Plan to return soon and often.

I first ate at Johnny Carinos in Brownsville, Texas. It was wonderful! Nachos dripping with cheese, great pasta dishes and the best bread ever. I was so excited when Carinos came to Muncie but it's not really as good as the one in Texas which I visited twice. The nachos are the disappointment. The homemade chips are good but after... More
