Thanksgiving with the family
Amazing food, and our waiter had so much knowledge about food and also history!!!
200% happy with his recommendations!
Amazing service, we were looking forward to the food for a while very unimpressed
Fantastic food and service. Will be back!
Amazing food and service as per usual! Always our go to place for date night
We left all food and beverage decisions to Josh, our server. We thought of it as an omakase experience and we were not disappointed. The first dish was a capresse topped with arugula lightly tossed in a yuzu dressing that had a bright and fragrant scent. Next, The hobo fish was cooked to perfection in a savory cream sauce. The leftover fish and sauce was then transformed into a puttanesca pasta that was so well balanced and tasty that I ate the whole bowl myself and still wanted more. We also had a special “Wednesday night toro” that was unique. I had wine and sake pairing while my gf had the tea pairing with her dinner. If you’ve never tried the tea pairing, you have been missing out. Josh is not only a wine sommelier, but also an expert in fine teas and his in-depth knowledge of both made our dinning experience at Carino one of the most memorable. I would love to dine again at Carino when we get a chance to come back to Calgary.
We’re thankful for Carino’s commitment to health and safety with vaccine passports.
Amazing as always
Beautiful evening with wonderful service and very interesting and tasty dishes!
The pastas were great. I didn’t like the Agadashi Mozzarella. I like both, but not in one dish. Didn’t make sense, and it was over priced.
The tea and desert were good.
On our third time dining here I can assure you we enjoy the atmosphere, food, and service they have offered all along. The front of house staff additions have only compounded reasons to return. I really must applaud Carino for enabling Joshua to continue to offer Calgary a very niche craft.
This is just to say…if you have ever, will ever, or just heard rumours that others pour boiling water over leaves as a means to a beverage, a trip to Carino now could change your life.
Very tasty food and excellent service. A bit noisy but can easily have a conversation within the table. The tea experience is a must.
Fantastic food with an attentive and friendly server. Will come back for more of this interesting fusion of Japanese and Italian food!
Service was great and food was good but didn’t wow us. Sat at a booth facing another table so we felt a bit uncomfortable, but still had a great time. Risotto was amazing!
Fantastic restaurant. With perfect service and special mention to josh who totally seduced us with his very friendly way of being. Wines are also very good.
Always a wonderful experience at Carino! Josh is the best server!
The food was great the service was outstanding. Thank you.
It was amazing, 100% would come back for the tuna carpaccio and everything else in general. Stu made the experience super nice and enjoyable. Thanks Stu
Incentive cuisine, cooked thoughtfully , presented and served with care.
Intimate , though not crowded seating.
We loved the creativity that did not disappoint!
Another amazing dining experience. Chef Toshiro prepared an outstanding meal and our waiter Stuart was the best
We had the most amazing experience at Carino for our anniversary. Both of the servers were knowledgeable and attentive. Josh went above and beyond and his wealth of knowledge about the food, tea, wine, whisky and really everything made the meal unforgettable. Kudos and bravo to your team. We cannot wait to revisit.
Seriously one of the best restaurant experiences we have EVER had. Food tasted great and our server was the absolute best. He was super knowledgeable about tea and we actually learned so much. He was very personable and inviting.
Rest of the staff was inviting and kind too!
Overall definitely worth it to check out! Make a reservation as it is smaller and gets busy around dinner time.
Excellent service. Good flavours and food.
Creative dishes and very reasonable prices. Staff was friendly and helpful
Some of the best food I’ve ever had. Awesome place to dine.
Best place to eat hands down in Calgary. I have been going to it since it opened and have never had a bad experience. I was a chef for 25 years so that's saying a lot
Delicious food and a unique experience. Best of all was the service, Josh was an amazing server.
Food was excellent as always. Never disappoints
Always consistent and wonderful service.
Great food and amazing service. Desserts are delicious too. Totally recommended.
Amazing food and always consistent with awesome service.
Our waiter was so busy talking to tables about himself, his life a detailed painful explanation of the special that we could never flag him down to actually order. He was way too involved and actually took a knee at the table. Food was great, fresh, innovative but the waiter just ruined the vibe
Perfect as always
Love the food, went 2 days in a row cause it was soo good.
Pros: best restaurant in calgary.
Cons: you'll go somewhere else and be like, oh i'll try this! Then you'll just wish you were eating at carino instead.
Food was interesting, the mozzarella ball things were bland. Had the 29 dollar seafood special and it was not worth the price. Had very little seafood in it and wasn’t happy with it.
Gyozagna was interesting but mediocre at best flavourwise
Great food. Very unique! Loved it
The food here is amazingly delicious and the head server is amazing with his knowledge of food, wines and tea. By far one of my favorite places in the city to eat.!
This is one of our hidden secrets! The food is always amazing, never had a bad meal. Always the best and when you leave, all you’re thinking about is when can we get back here. We have tried most of the menu and all have been delicious! If you have never done the Saturday Ramen soup, then you are really missing out.
