A Geniune Italian Restaurant Favorite….With Added Spice. When does a restaurant be a little more than just a spot to just get something to consume? When does eating at restaurants turn into a great experience? At Johnny Carino’s, we make an effort to be YOUR favorite authentic Italian restaurant.
Food is at the heart in our mission. From the Italian classics, to our own one-of-a-kind spiced Italian favorites, our offerings are handcrafted through the finest, freshest ingredients available. Whether you’re craving Italian comfort food like our 16-Layer Lasagna, or something with a little more spice like our famous Italian Nachos, Johnny Carino’s has something for everybody.
We revere the tradition of serving just the best, so when it means coming in early to hand-roll the meatballs, create a 16-Layer Lasagna one layer at a time, or craft our tiramisu on your own, we consider it as passion, not work. Even though we are most happy with the Italian classics, it’s our one-of-a-kind, signature spicy dishes that really get us excited! A bit something we call Spiced Italian. Our Spicy Shrimp and Chicken, Italian Nachos, and Jalapeno Garlic Tilapia have already been some of our very popular dishes since we first opened our doors.
So whether you adore the classics, or perhaps the spice, it will almost always be fresh and handmade to order at Johnny Carino’s. Carino’s Italian is a United States-based chain of Italian food casual dining restaurants. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, the concept is owned by Fired Up, Inc., which was founded in 1997 by partners and former Brinker International executives Norman Abdallah and Creed Ford III. The company declared bankruptcy protection on March 31, 2014 and again declared bankruptcy in 2016. The filings were concurrent with the closing of countless Carino’s locations; while Carino’s once owned or franchised a lot more than 170 restaurants across america, since July 23, 2018, no more than 55 Carino’s locations still operate.
Past of Johnny Carino’s Family Restaurant – In 1997, Fired Up Restaurant Concepts acquired the only five existing Johnny Carino’s Italian Kitchen, infusing them with the vitality and passion we know today. Beginning from Chef Carino during the early years, and carrying forward today with Chef Chris Peitersen, Johnny Carino’s has evolved many signature dishes that respect the authentic Italian traditions, while creating unique, “spiced” flavor profiles that express Johnny Carino’s passion and creativity, and frpodi to fresh, quality food in a great value.
With over 70 locations in america and 10 throughout the Middle East, Carabou has evolved the dining experience for anybody who desires to love a great Italian family restaurant atmosphere. As we have evolved in the last fifteen years, we have never lost touch using the desire for excellent food and wonderful service we provide to our own guests.
