I love Italian food! One restaurant that my husband and I love to go to is Carino's. We love that we can go there for a date, or we can bring the kids. We were given a gift card to use for a review at our local Carino's. Upon arrival we were greeted by the very nice and attentive hostess. Once at our table the kids were given activity books with crayons and we were given our menus to look over. The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our drinks arrived shortly after they took our drink orders. I love the bread that they bring to the table and the olive oil dip for the bread, a really great pallet teaser!! When we go to restaurants we do have our favorite plates, so when we do reviews, we like to try something different. This time I went with the Baked Cheese Tortellini and my husband went with the special, the Tuscan Rib Eye. When we were looking at the kids menu, we were pleasantly surprised on the choices and the fact that the meals are all under 500 calories. My daughter went with the Bowtie Pasta with Tomato Sauce and my son went with the Cheese Stuffed Pasta. Lets just say that once the meals arrived, mouths were busy eating! I had seen my sons plate when it came to the table and that little boy ate every bit that was on that plate. My daughter enjoyed her meal as well. I really enjoyed the creamy meat sauce and the baked tortellini, very yummy!! My husband said that his steak had a great char on it, cooked to perfection. The vegetable medley was delightfully fresh and the fettuccine alfredo was awesome as well! The waiter was very attentive and kept our glasses full while we were there. We did not get dessert this time but I know from past visits that Turtle Cheesecake is just amazing!! By the end of the meal, we were full and very satisfied by the meal all around. The wonderful people from Carino's Italian Restaurant would like to give one of my amazing readers a $50 Gift Card!
