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.
Carino is one of our favourite restaurants. The food is creative and delicious. Overall the restaurant is very well priced for the experience they deliver. The service is always the best, Josh specifically is fantastic. Incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about their food, wine, sake and especially tea.
Excellent food, lovely presentation. The service was exceptional.
Took awhile for the appy to be served. The food was outstanding and ambiance perfect. Loved the food and the experience.
Food was fantastic!!! The seafood pasta special was amazing.
Some dishes took a little bit longer then expected but definitely worth the wait!
Top notch, highly recommend to anyone who eats food. Will be going back to try every item.
Went back to dine in, post-COVID restrictions. They haven't lost a beat! Their curry seafood risotto and seafood pasta specials are excellent. Josh in the dining room always looks after us.
They made the Japanese and Italian fusion work! Very interesting food. The appetizers were absolutely amazing. The entrees, still good, but not blown away like the early dishes. The service was truly amazing! Love the atmosphere as well.
Really delicious! Great date place. The desserts are not on the menu but if you ask the server they will tell you - creme brûlée was perfect!
I think it would have been helpful to have another staff on to support all the people there
We have been to Carino many times and have never been disappointed.
We always recommend it.
They are doing an excellent job during these difficult times. They're concern for their customers is obvious.
Great experience for first time visitor to Carino. They make adjustment right away after notifying server of the appetizer and they fixed the issue right away. What an amazing service they are so pleasant to deal with. The scallop risotto dish was full of flavours and it is top notch quality for this divine dish. It is an unique experience for sure with Japanese/Italian fusion crossover. Must try if you are looking for an unique experience.
Food is definitely very interesting and different. Very much enjoyed our food. Service was a bit slow, took almost 15 minutes for a server to even come by and take our drink order!
Service, food, ambience, were all top notch. I’d highly recommend!
Really great experience. Josh our server was very knowledgable and gave great recommendations
This is one of our favorite Calgary eateries. A true neighborhood gem. The food is exceptional and the quality is reliable; our 'go to' favorite dishes never disappoint (the "special" seafood dish, and the pescatore with curry risotto). We like the spicy tuna tartar as an appy (we recommend it) and at times have the tasting dessert (it has 3 small items that are easy to share).
The food always exceeds expectation and is done in the most interesting and creative ways. This is anything other than ordinary. Taste sensation with a twist.
The selection of teas and knowledge of the waiter is the best I have experienced in the city.
If you want to have a memorable experience from the moment you walk through the door you need to make this a regular.
Great food very reasonable
Food and service are top notch! Unique concept - highly recommend the gyozagna.
Fantastic food! Super unique dishes and really good service.
Went for my birthday a while back because I love this place. Food was amazing but definitely understaffed and the server seemed stressed the whole night. She typed in the wrong dish which was unfortunate since it was what we were looking forward to the most but it was okay because it was still yummy. I sympathized with her as I work in the industry until one customer told his friends that his dish looked different than last time (it wasn't a negative comment.) I watched her shake her head, very rudely tell him they changed the plating and proceed to roll her eyes as she walked away. I wasn't the only one who noticed she was annoyed as the guy had to let her know that he actually liked the new plating. At the end of the meal, I was excited to have dessert but was then informed that the chef was busy and we would have to wait a while, followed by a "so no dessert?" I would've appreciated a choice but I felt pressured to say no. Overall delicious but sad that that was how my bday meal went.
This was an amazing dining experience. I absolutely loved the food and the service. It was an unforgettable dining experience
Can't wait to go back the food and service was amazing!
Excellent food, terrific value! Great for date night.
I thought the waiter was polite, friendly and very informative and made the entire experience standout. The food was very good, and had a wide variety of flavours and was even better than anticipated.
I love this restaurant, the food is incredible. The atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming but still very neat polished. Wonderful place.
My Partner and I have been coming to Carino for about 2 years and we have never been disappointed! They have great dishes made with great ingredients. The staff have always been so kind and informative when it comes to their menu and items. I highly recommend the Gyozagna or the Spivey Duck “Nannan” Soup!
Always dependable, delicious and interesting dishes
Very good food. The seared scallops on risotto was exceptional.
We had a wonderful dinner! Amazing food and great location.
Great experience, our server was great. She was outgoing and suggested what we should have to drink/eat which was very appreciated. Out tea specialist was very thorough and was extremely knowledgeable on the topic of Japanese tea. It was very intriguing and the tea was worth the money spent. Overall great experience. Will definitely be coming back.
Had their risotto special and it was so good. Lots of flavor 😋, however the salmon was a bit over done. Otherwise amazing!
