Closes early whenever the employees want – Apparently we drove up on a bad night for the employees, it was superbowl night and they decided they were going to close early. One of the employees ran out of the restuarant and told us "BYE!" and I said "what?" He then told me that since it was superbowl night they were closing early (it was about 7 on a Sunday). Well I had never eaten there before BUT thankfully now I will never eat there.
Good food, horrible waitress experience – I went to Carinos and was very disappointed. Not by the food but by the horrible service I received. The waitress (named Yolanda), was nothing but rude. She gave us the wrong order and then attitude when we told her it was incorrect. Good food, bad waitress. I hope she is fired soon because with service like that I will never return.
Best Italian food in Doral! – Carinos in Doral is under new management and the changes are like night and day. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the staff makes you feel right at home, and the managers are there for your every need. I had the eggplant parmesan and it was absolutely delicious, I highly recommend it. Their bar features an amazing happy hour that can?t be beat in the area. I can?t stress enough the importance of trying their homemade tiramisu; it?s out of this world!
Best service and food – I recently visited Carino's for the second time. The first was during an event for my brother in law. I took my fiance there for dinner last weekend to enjoy a night on the town. The whole experiance from being greated to the time we left was spectacualr. I love good Italian food, but in South Florida it is hard to find a place that can deliver great Italian food and tremendous service. I recommend to any one that they try Carino's for their dinning choices, I can assure you, that my experiance was one of the best I have had in a long time.
PHENOMENIAL ESTABLISHMENT FOR EVENTS – I recently held my daugters First Communion Dinner at Carino's Italian Grill in Doral. It came very highly recommended from some close friends of mine that had also held an event there. The service, food and overall atmoshere was to say the least one of the most memerable experiances. My daughters first communion dinner was everything I heard and much much more. From the moment we started planning our event, the management staff was very attentive and supportive to all our needs. On the day of the event, the room was arranged and set up remarkably. The food and service that was given to our friends and family was outstanding. I have already recommended to my friends and family who have asked about housing events to contact Carino's directly for their future events.
THANK YOU CARINO'S FOR A WARMING AND MEMERABLE EXPEIRIANCE.
Best Italian food and dessert you will ever have. – I?ve enjoyed lunch and dinner at Carino?s on numerous occasions, and I continue to dine there a few times a month. Honestly if asked where you would be able find the best Italian food ever I would have only one answer for you; Carino?s Italian Grill. It?s a great experience enjoying dinner here with your family, friends, going on that first date, or just going to hang out and have a good time. It?s enjoyable for all occasions. The service is just as fantastic, all the waiters, waitresses, and hostess are friendly and always have smiles on their faces. When you enter Carino?s you always feel right at home, you are greeted as you walk through the door and seated very quickly. At Carino?s Italian Grill you are always taken care of everyone does everything possible to make you feel very comfortable and relaxed. It has a family feel to it so brining your kids there is great for not only you, but them as well. The decor makes you feel as if you just stepped out of America and right into the heart of Italy. Carino?s is the place to go when you?re looking for a place to have amazing Italian food, but it is not only amazing it is also healthy for you. The food at Carino?s is grilled to perfection not fired in grease and oil like Macaroni Grill and Olive Garden. If you think the food in great then just wait for dessert! At Carino?s they have very traditional Italian desserts like Tiramisu for example, which just melts in your mouth, you feel like you?re on cloud 9 from the moment you take your first bite. If you don?t believe me find out for yourself, go and enjoy a night at Carino?s Italian Grill in Doral and be your own judge, but I promise you won?t be disappointed.
Best Italian Restaurant Anywhere – I've been to Carino's Italian Grill in Doral on numerous occasions and I continue going because it is the best Italian restaurant I've been to. I love Italian cuisine and have been to many restaurants that have no where near as great food and service as Carino's. I am not pleased with the review given by 'oby2006', it is completely misleading because Romano's Macaroni Grill and Olive Garden have the same price range as Carino's but the food Isn't as great. Carino's cuisine tastes much healthier because it is not saturated in grease like Macaroni Grill and Olive Garden's food... and Carino's has a much better dessert menu! Besides the cuisine... service is great, you get seated quickly and you are always greeted by smiling faces. I love all of the decor which you can tell has a touch of italy in every piece. Everyone makes you feel very welcome, I had my daughter's baby shower there and the managers were very helpful every step of the way (I had never planned a baby shower before that), it was unforgettable. But don't take my word for it, stop by Carino's Italian Grill in Doral and see for yourself.
P.S. I highly recommend it. :)
& everything was very clean... which I'm very picky about!
Great food, Great taste, Great Service – I visited Carino's this past Saturday for my anniversary. Let me tell you it was the most pleasant experiance ever. Everything could not have been better. Our Server, Luz was extremely helpful with any question we had, and recommended two fabiuos dishes for my husband and I. The food was phenomenal to say the least. I would invite any one to enjoy a night at Carino's that I had, you would not regret it.
GREAT ITALIAN FOOD – THE FOOD WAS GREAT; ALOT MORE FOOD THAN EXPECTED FROM AN ENTREE. THE ATMOSPHERE WAS VERY COZY AND FRIENDLY
Dinner Shift -- A SALES Set UP! ...Rude, Pushy, OverSelling Waiters. – My experience at this restaurant was on a Saturday Night. To begin with, their dinner menu is nothing cheap -- plates average approx. $20. So, once again seems like Citysearch is either not properly doing their homework, or reaping extra benefits out of miscategorizing these joints. Long story short, our waitress was constantly questioning everything in our order as she tryed to sell us on more expensive plates & drinks. Finally she kind of got her way, after she brought me an extremely small portion in my main plate, she shrewdly manipulated me into ordering a much more expensive plate for myself -- family size $26 plus. After everything said & done, our bill for my wife & I, escalated to over $50 (w/o tip) not including drinks or dessert.
I strongly suggest to stay away from this place for dinner, unless you don't mind overpaying average italian food in an average italian restaurant. Perhaps Romano's Maccaroni & Grill or the Olive Garden would be better overall choices for italian.
We would appreciate if you could send us the check number and your contact information in order to be able to research your feedback in detail since we only have two plates in our entire menu with prices above $20 (not counting the family/catering plates for 3 or more people).
Thank you for your feedback and we are very sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me directly.
Thank you, Robert C. Barany, Vice-President & CEO, Phone: (786) 621-5456, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.carinos.com
