    The pasta is definitely celiac friendly! However, food takes a long time to come and it is very expensive.

    They do have gluten free pasta. But the whole experience about cross contamination is hot and miss depending on your server. The flavor and consistency of the pasta has also been hit and miss. There are other places nearby that we would rather go.

    incredibly sensitive to celiac issues, treated every gluten free request as though it was celiac related because they stated they did not expect me to divulge my medical diagnosis in order to have a safe meal. very happy. will return. excellent variety of safe options

    Lack of server training and communication with kitchen manager and servers caused them to give me meatballs on gf pasta. Two servers assured me the kitchen manager said the meatballs were gf. After I had a bite, my Aunt questioned how they keep them together without bread crumbs. There are gf bread crumbs, but I decided to double check. The server insisted the kitchen manager said they are gf. I asked him to find out how they were made. The manager came over apologized like crazy for the staff error. While the Penne was gf the meatballs were not! Needles to say I am having a Gluten attack! So mad! And I have to travel tomorrow! Not hard to get it right! TRAINING and Gf menu would help!

    Very disappointed with all the glowing chain reviews, coming here. No gf pasta, no gf pizza crust. They did offer to put my chicken over potatoes instead, but I was looking forward to so much more!

    I went yesterday and asked about their gluten-free menu. The server told me they no longer have one, as they are making modifications. She also told me they no longer have gluten-free pizza crust. The only thing she knew was that they offer gluten-free penne.

    The waitress was so considerate and careful not to cross contaminate my meal. This restaurant has so many gluten free options including gluten free pasta that was cooked to perfection as well as bread sticks, which was cleverly an Udi's pizza crust cut up and baked. I was very impressed and look forward to a return trip in the future!

    I'm giving Carinos three stars because they are trying. but if you are celiac, beware. the gluten free pasta is not cooked and drained in dedicated gluten free pans. cross contamination is a deal killer. they do have a gluten free menu, so there are other choices. ordered Italian chili. it was good, filling, and came with free refills.

    1st time visiting. I ordered GF soup and salad; child ordered GF penne with white sauce and chicken. Soup is clearly not made from scratch OR/AND from a can mixed with frozen veggies but manager says it is. Pasta was not a good dish at all. We ordered to house salads to go and left extremely unfulfilled and disappointed. Not sure if GF precautions taken in kitchen. I git a headache as soon as I ate some of the pasta.

    Gluten-free spaghetti sauce is way too oily. Noodles were extremely grainy and tasted like eating uncooked wheat. Gluten-free desert also very grainy and they add way too much sweetness to try and cover up the texture.

    This has been our best dining out gf experiences since being diagnosed. The restaurant has a dedicated menu, knowledgeable staff and many tasty options. We asked for the gf menu and waiter brought us GF bread sticks along with regular bread for rest of the table. It was nice to treated like a normal guest, even though she is limited.

    Staff was AWESOME!!! Very knowledgeable. The manager took special care with my husband's meal as he as both a dairy and gluten allergy. He had the build your own pasta with chicken and gf penne with spicy marinara sauce. No reactions what so ever! We came from Nebraska and were a little nervous about traveling and allergies. Our first meal here in Waco and couldn't be more pleased.

    Enjoyed my meal-lemon Rosemary chicken with gf pasta (i could have replaced gf pasta with roasted potatoes). Manager brought me gf pita chips with gf dipping oil since i couldn't have bread at table - a real treat! i was also able to have gf minestrone because they didn't add the pasta to it. No reaction! Manager was understanding of dietary restriction and cross contamination concerns I expressed. When asked, I was told they are a chain restaurant. I will return!

    Went in ordered the create your own pasta with meatballs off the gf menu. Five minutes later waitress informed me meatballs are not gf. I ask why are they on the gf menu. They say it must be a mistake. After a long while my food shows up and there is normal pasta mixed with my gf pasta. I show the waitress she was shocked asked for my check. Manager came over and apologized and didn't charge me but i will never go back that is not safe stay away!!!

    The online menu does not match the actual menu at the restaurant, so the limited GF options are even more limited once you get there. I had to repeat 3 times the word "gluten" to the hostess when asking for a GF menu (should have ran away right there).The waitress we had seemed very annoyed about our dietary restrictions and brought us a huge loaf of glutinous bread even though I explained that all of our party had gluten allergies. When I asked if the bread was GF, she had no idea what to say. Does she not know about gluten containing foods? Did she not care? Regardless- I wouldn't go to this place if I was you. Restaurants that advertise "GF" friendliness and don't bother to train their staff are worse, IMHO, than those who don't even bother to try to deal with the Celiac world. Just hoping that we don't get sick.

    I was extremely impressed at the lengthy separate gluten free menu at Johnny Carino's. However, their food is just mediocre Italian; a step down from Olive Garden (in my opinion). While we received excellent customer service, every dish at our table was served lukewarm and the flavor was lacking. I'll definitely go back for their CHEAP bar menu ($5 options!), but know I'll know what to expect.

    You'd never know you're eating GF at this place! They have some decent options for pasta, but their Alfredo isn't GF. Their house salad (minus croutons) is crave-worthy. They even had GF chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream last time I went. I never feel limited when I come here. Plenty of vegan & GF options, too!

    Waited several minutes to be seated. Bathrooms were dirty. The potato soup was delicious, and the minestrone was pretty good. Thank goodness for unlimited servings of soup because it took nearly 45 minutes for our food to be delivered. No issues with gluten (thank goodness!) but the food was just poor quality. Overcooked steak, cold and undercooked veggies. The spicy shrimp and chicken WAS spicy, but somehow managed to have zero flavor. The chicken Alfredo lacked creaminess and again was flavorless. The waitress was prompt but seemed unconcerned about the wait time or quality of the meal. I'm disappointed that so many reviews on this sure were positive, it's why we went in the first place. Lesson learned, we will not be back.
