    My food was excellent and wife didn’t love hers but overall we look forward to coming back. Service was great and the restaurant is decorated very well. The tables are close together and it’s a bit cramped on a Friday night when it’s busy.

    This was our first time to Carino and we were blown away. Josh our waiter was knowledge and had stories about Japanese whiskeys and even the cheesecake. Josh’s customer service was outstanding. We will be back Oh yes, the food 💕💕💕💕. From the appetizers to the Ramen, the duck and the scallops with risotto. These did not disappoint. Thank you Carino Paula and Chad Shelton

    We got the Bucatini with Meat Wagyu Sauce, a chef's special Tonkatsu curry with Carbonara and the Nutella burnt basque cheesecake. Everything and every bite was superb!! The pork had a perfect medium cook, wagyu meat sauce was very tasty!

    The menu is short but specific to appies, main courses, desserts, beverages-both alcoholic and non. The menu lends itself to "share"; however, is not specifically laid out to be shared. We shared our choices because this was our first time at Carino. Sharing was easy and that way we tried several items and were still fully satisfied. The choices are wonderful in both Japanese and Italian realms...our server explained what was entailed in the cooking and fusion of each dish. This helped us so much to make our final decisions. We finished a delightful meal with Lavender Tea which was expertly steeped by one of the servers, Josh, who clearly knew how to prepare it.

    Incredible flavours in every dish we tried. Scallop risotto with truffles is my go to but you must also try the mussel appi and the dumplings. Duck, wagu and the curry pork carbonara should also be considered! Reasonably priced wines too (house chard is excellent) Our favourite local spot to eat. High quality, great value.

    Super friendly and funny staff with loads of knowledge about not only the food and tea’s, but the regions they come from! Probably one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had from a service standpoint, and you can’t go wrong with the food. The Spicy Bolognese Ramen is a thing of dreams!

    Overall LOVED the food. As a huge lover of both Italian and Japanese cuisine this was a foodie dream come true! I had the special, half tonkatsu half carbonara, and it was amazing. The tonkatsu was a cooked perfectly, and the cut of pork was high quality. But the highlight of the night was our waiter. Extremely personable and so easy to talk to, he put up with all our questioning and knew so much about the menu! We stayed quite late and he kept reassuring us to take our time and enjoy. Amazing service!!!

    So delicious and the ambience was perfect. Our server was amazing and warm, very attentive and had the right amount of humor/insight for food choice - cant recall his name unfortunately. Our 5yo daughter enjoyed the meal with us. The duck soup is highly recommended, and we had the special (seafood pasta one, really good too) was tasty with a touch of heat to it. Will be back for sure!
