The waitress put croutons in my soup !!! I told her not to simply remove the croutons but to bring me a new soup. Them anorher waitress came to talk to me about their GF pastas and she did not know if they were warmed in the same water as their regular pastas... So I took their bunless burger... This was not why i came in an italian restaurant... :-( If you come here, be sure to ask many questions to your waitress to ensure she knows what gluten is and how to handle your plate
Great selection and yummy!
I was very impressed. First restaurant I had eaten at since diagnosis of celiac disease a year ago. There is a gluten free menu, and it is NOT just salad. I had a wonderful chicken dish with roast read potatoes and veggies. Tasted amazing. I let my waitress know I had celiac, she relayed to chef and he did an amazing job of providing me a safe dish. I will definitely go back. So happy to have gone to a restaurant and not gotten sick. I highly recommend this restaurant. Btw, I went during slow hours as I felt safer that way. Less anxiety and knowing the staff would have time to accommodate.
im letting u know there are several people that do n dont knw if they have celiac disease!!?? but i like going to carinos but my wife and daugther cannot go. so i ve become a celiac disease free chef in my house n browsing all over the internet to get a cool idea to whip up good meal!
My husband and I went there and LOVED the food. We shared a gf pizza and a grilled chicken caesar salad. It was a little more money for the gf pizza but I was so excited to be able to go out for good quality pizza. I highly recommend this restaurant!!!
I ordered the gf spaghetti with meat sauce which was good although the sauce was a bit watery. After I had eaten almost the whole dish, I found a regular fettuccine noodle in my food. The waiter apologized and the mgr. showed my dish to the kitchen, apologized and removed it from my bill however that is not cool. Apparently they were sharing strainers between regular and gf pasta. Beware and confirm that they use separate ones if you dare eat here. Not celiac friendly!
Love the addition of gluten free pasta to their menu. We get the family meals now with Angel hair or penne.
Awesome, yet CLOSED down last fall!
Had trouble ordering take out from johnny carino's. They told us they could do chicken primavera without pasta until we pressed issue of menu we saw on line. Finally told us it would be half hour wait. We were ok with that not the telling us they had no pasta.
Minus stars. Was excited about their partnership with Udis but they cross contaminate like crazy and the wait staff have no idea about their gluten free menu. Gluten free pizza thrown on a stone where all regular pizzas cooked. One waitress said you would need to build your own gluten free pizza and guess at their ingredients at what looked like what might be gluten free....I don't know what seasonings are in any of their meats. Soup is gluten free but don't even bother to use separate ladle. 10 thumbs down
I would not give it a star at all. Host did not know about a gluten free menu. Menu has marked gluten free items but they were few. As an Italian restaurant, and advertised as gluten free, it had no gluten free pasta. Salad came with croutons on it. Food was blah.
I had spicy chicken and shrimp, salad with vinaigrette and food was tasty but I reacted while in restaurant-I believe due to the bread smell. Air was very aromatic with it. The food could have also been contaminated 2nd visit I had skilletinj with Italian sausage Nd GF minestrone soup. Skilletini was too oily for my taste but probably from sausage. Service was good. I was already having gluten symptoms from another meal 2 days before so do not know if any additional symptoms from this meal as symptoms have not subsided. Meal is ok but I will avoid the sausage in future.
I was very impressed with the server in the manager. They took time to listen to my questions and answer them even if it meant they had to take a little extra time. They paid close attention to my request, and accommodated me in a very satisfactory manner. The gluten free menu had plenty of delicious options. I left feeling fully satisfied!
I love carinos!! They are so helpful & have developed a great GF menu. As everywhere else, You have to remind servers of needing it to be GF & things like fish not breaded, But I've never gotten sick here. & the food is fantastic! With our Carinos cars our kids eat free so it's usually not too bad of a bill.
My server Freddie knew exactly what to do when I mentioned gluten free, but apparently the kitchen did not. Not a lot to choose from but the chicken marsala was fantastic. Gluten free options are listed on the main menu. About 6 options to choose from, most of them with a butter cream sauce (which I also must avoid). Chicken marsala seemed safe, but I had digestive issues all night. Cross contamination perhaps?
