    I’ll be returning for sure. We were greeted by a friendly server. He was very attentive and helpful with the menu. The sushi tacos were delicious as was the spicy tuna tartar which we share. Our table ordered the duck ( yum) , the seafood pasta ( husband raved) and the Katsura curry and carbonara. My son had a soup dish which he said was delicious. We enjoyed the desserts..creme brulee, cheesecake and the taster trio. So tasty. This place serves excellent food!

    My experience was not too great, the food came out scoldingly hot. Two of our friends couldn’t eat their food until my other friends were finished. The namban was super oily, and the duck duck goose was uneventful. The penne was just spicy and flavourless and the agedashi mozzarella was hard and just oddly paired. It’s my second time here and I still can’t recommend it to my friends. I’d really hope they will improve because the concept is wonderful, execution not so much.

    First visit since before COVID and it’s just as good as I remembered it. Carino is one of the best kept secrets in Calgary. Deserves to be listed as one of the best restaurants in the city but is often missed. Food is inventive and delicious. Service is charming and efficient. My favourite restaurant!

    Creative food with the most incredible flavors… Who would not like scallops with truffle risotto or a Gyoza lasagna with wagu beef ragu. Everything we ordered was mouth watering. Love your new space. Best place in Calgary to eat hands down

    Carino is definitely my favorite place downtown and it wouldn’t be if there wasn’t this savant combination of food and people. The beautiful courses we had had an other flavor thanks to Joshua and his fantastic stories and his mindful attitude towards us. Eating very well is something delightful but eating with Joshua is something that I value even more. Particular thought for his beautiful tea at the end that made us travel and almost convert my husband to this delicate and magical tradition. Carino is a nice discover and Joshua a very nice encounter. Thank you so much.

    Seemed to be a lot of confusion between the wait staff. They also spoke too quietly. Restaurant is super loud - we are in our mid 30s, not seniors just for reference. We had a hard time hearing each other at the table. The booths are comfy, but that arrangement of people contributed to the noise problem.
