    Just ate here and had a good experience. Ask for Will, he will explain everything. Have gf pasta and many of their sauces are naturally gf. Cooked in separate area in separate pans. Will eat here again!

    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!

I think you can get them several places around campus, but OU FCU is where I can usually get some.

    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.

    My teenage daughter has celiac. We occasionally eat at Carino's and she thoroughly enjoys their pasta (they have GF corn pasta). I don't recall if the menu now indicates GF or if we had to ask. There are limited options, but what they offer is delicious and she has never gotten sick.

    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 manager was amazing there. Through Facebook, I was able to ask what I should order and the Executive Chef helped me find items (usually customized) to get pas my gluten and soy allergies. They are also very good about it in the Lake Jackson location as well.

    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!

    Holy cross contamination! ! Our waitress was lovely and very attentive to my needs but the cook did not change out the water for the pasta! ! when are people gonna get it? ?? I wish you could have a restaurant staff experience this pain for just one day. ... they'd never be so careless again. At the end of the day though I blame myself for ever thinking that eating out could be so simple.

    The GF menu available online is not all the same as at the Fargo Location. They said all they can do is substitute vegetables for pasta on a dish... but I cannot understand why two pieces of broccoli and a handful of mushrooms was considered a substitute for a full plate of pasta... I didn't get sick, but then again I barely got food at all : (

    Great menu full of real Italian GF options. So far I've only had the pizza. I give it about a 7 out of 10 for GF pizza. It was good but the crust was a little chewy. Our waitress was very nice and even reminded me about the croutons on the side salad when I forgot to ask for them off. Will be going back.
