Popular Menu Items

Carino’s Italian Grill brings a lot of options to the table, so many in fact that we had a hard time picking just four that we loved. With their Hand-Breaded Calamari and fusion Italian Nachos on their appetizer menu, all the way to their classic Italian Chicken Scaloppini there’s so much to love here. Thankfully we were able to winnow it down to our four favorite menu items, and those we now bring to you. If you don’t know where to start, we highly recommend these, but eventually, you’ll find your favorites and be ordering them every time you go!

Check out our selections below:

Pepperoni Bread

This is one item that we’ve found is a favored classic of their appetizer menu, the sweet taste of traditional red sauce served atop bread that’s been infused with beer and stuffed with fresh parmesan, mozzarella, and their classic pepperoni. It’s then shuffled off to their wood-fired oven to be cooked to a delicious, tantalizing golden brown.

Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad

Every Italian place has a delicious salad offering that they’re proud of, and Carino’s Italian Grill carries their Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad as their most popular rendition. Roma tomatoes and applewood smoked bacon dance with crispy iron straws and red onions in a bed of fresh spinach sprinkled with gorgonzola and drizzled with a warm bacon vinaigrette.

Tuck in for just $8.99

Chicken Milano

This entree is the thing dreams are made of, a delicious alfredo sauce blankets a deliciously sauteed chicken breast that’s topped with ham, provolone, basil, and mushrooms atop a bed of fettuccine. This incredibly decadent dish comes with a side of house or Caesar salad and is easily one of the most popular entrees they have available.

Go to culinary heaven for just $13.99

Pasta Harvest

This isn’t so much one dish, as multiple options all created to your specifications. With their pasta harvest you get to select from their traditional kinds of pasta, blend it with one of their house-blend sauces, and then you can add-on your choice of proteins and other toppings for just a little extra. It’s the ultimate self-designed rapture.

It all starts at $10.99 for a personal serving with add-ons running $2.00-$3.00; family platters are $29.99

Carino’s Italian Grill’s History

Carino’s Italian Grill was developed by a family who was determined to bring change to the standing Italian casual dining industry. Too long had companies like Olive Garden ruled the roost with flavors that were Italianesque without being truly Italian. Through dedication and drawing on a long family history of delicious Italian cuisine, they came together and created Carino’s Italian Grill, a restaurant that combined the comfort and relaxation of casual family dining with the finest Italian cuisine to come out of the Mediterranean.
