    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.

    Lot's of options, staff is knowledgeable and careful. Addendum: The last two times we went the GF pasta had to be sent back because we found regular pasta in the bowl. Mgmt was apologetic, but the kitchen and wait staff need better training.

    I've been to Carino's many times at home so I didn't think I'd have an issue with this one while traveling through town. I asked the hostess for the gluten free menu and she said that they don't do gluten free at this location. We went someplace else.

    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!

    Gluten free menu is weak at best and is basically just an instruction list on how to order. No gluten free pasta or bread options. I am celiac so it's not worth the risk for me.

    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.

    I would not recommend this place to anyone. The restaurant was dirty, the bathrooms were disgusting. There was quite a few options on the gluten free menu, which was nice. But the food was actually quite bad. No taste, steak was way over cooked, pasta was ok but the sauce was like water. We ate there yesterday and today my guts are on fire 🔥. This is obviously an old olive garden...some of the old decorations are still up. Stay away....Celiac or not....go someplace else.

    I was happy to see they now have a gluten free menu with gluten free pasta and pizza dishes. I opted for the pizza because I was told they don't always change out the water when they do gluten free pasta so there could be some cross contamination with the regular pasta, not sure how this is ok. When the MANAGER brought out the food he just called it pizza so I asked if it was gluten free just to be safe. He said "uh, yeah." Unfortunately, I ate it and it was definitely not gluten free! It made me so sick! I won't be back since even the manager doesn't care enough to double check food safety.

    The service was pretty good and the chopped salad I ordered (which was a bit like an Italian cobb salad) was really delicious, my experience eating at Johnny Carino's as a person with gluten intolerance was disappointing. While most major Italian restaurants have an option for gluten-free pasta, this one does not. Unless you want a salad, you'll be out of luck as a gluten-free diner. Until they bring some more options in, I recommend opting for another restaurant.

    Great experience! I hadn't been in a while and we decided to go back tonight. Noticed their GF menu was different (this is how long it's been since I've been). Anyways I ordered my meal and a side salad to go with since my husband would be enjoying the yummy bread they give right in front of me. To my surprise, the waiter brought out some GF bread for me to enjoy as well!! It wasn't all that great tasting but I was very excited that I was thought of and waiter didn't want me to be sitting there empty handed. We will be going back! My meal was really good by the way!! It was some kind of skillet spaghetti meal, started with a T but super yummy!

    I was hopefull that this location would be knowledgeable about the gluten-free menu. Not only was the server annoyed by my questions, he literally stopped coming by the table. I had to ask repeatedly for management and the hostess for refills. This location is on Sunland Park drive, El Paso. Be very afraid to eat here. Cross contaminating food preparation and lack of knowledge, could affect your life!!

    Do not eat here if you have celiacs. we sat right by the kitchen and I watched the chef the whole time. He never changed his gloves or tongues and he used his hands to grab pasta. when I addressed with staff manager he apologized and barely reprimanded the chef who laughed it off. there menu says the are gig trained but after what I saw that must be a lie. I am usually a easy going person but this was horrible. wait staff was nice.

    They do have a gluten free menu with actual gluten free options, including gluten free pasta choices. Most of the waiters are aware of gluten when you tell them. I did not get sick when I went there, although the gluten free options were a little bland and didn't taste very good.

    The restaurant does have a gluten free menu including pizza and 2 types of pasta. We haven't had any issues with food preparation. The only downside is that they start every meal by delivering a loaf of bread wrapped in a wax paper bag. Even if you ask for a GF menu. Hasn't caused problems so far but unnecessary.

    The waiter was knowledgeable about Celiac and which foods were for sure safe to eat. In Lubbock, they only offer g-free penne for the pasta - I was a bit disappointed by that since their online menu offered spaghetti. That aside, the food was excellent and they actually offered lava cake as a dessert instead if just vanilla ice cream. Strongly recommend Carino's in Lubbock on Slide Road!
