****4 out of 5 stars****

One of the best Italian restaurants in Fort Collins, Johnny Carino's provides something for everyone. It is a great place to grab some lunch, or go to a formal dinner.

Each meal at Carino's starts out with a loaf of their fresh baked bread that is served with an infused olive oil and walnuts. It is so good to pull of a hunk of the bread and dunk it into the oil mixture. We also had salads which were okay, and two different appetizers (we had a larger party). They have a new crab and cheese dip that is served with toasted bread slices. This was so good, and very rich. We also had an order of calamari, which was a bit dissapointing because it was chewy. I prefer it to be sliced thinner and cooked crispier.

After all of this food, our meals came. I was so full, I was wondering how I was going to make room. But after taking a bit of my Gorgonzola Chicken Pasta, I could not help myself and ate half of the serving. Carino's serves very large portions, so be prepared for leftovers. They are very good with service, and will box up your leftovers for you.

Johhny Carino's is a great restaurant. They have great service, food, and ambiance. I would suggest making your way to Carino's for your next lunch meeting or classy supper.

Johnny Carino's is swag, like the dirt weed of Italian restaurants. I can't believe you all gave a bad review for Elliots then gave a good review for this place. There are so many non-chain Italian restaurants here.
