Johnny Carino's

Yesterday my mom took Matt and I out for Sunday dinner... She wanted Italian and she has never been to Johnny Carino's, so off we went. I went there with work for lunch a long time ago and it was pretty good.. This time was a little disappointing.

When we arrived we had to wait for a hostess to come and greet us, the stand was empty and they were not busy. The hostess seats us and the waitress comes over and asks what we would like to drink and takes our order. We look over the menu while waiting for our drinks. I'm not getting a good vibe from our waitress, she was not too pleasant as she took our order.

She comes back with our appetizer, Fried Mozzarella with Mariana which was pretty good. Then all of a sudden she brought out or salads and soup. Timing was a little bit off. We finish our appetizer plus our salads and soup. Matt and I had garden salads, I had the house dressing, which was good, and Matt had Gorgonzola dressing on his. I can't remember what kind of soup my mom had but she said it was good.

Timing was better when they brought out our entrees. My mom ordered the Chicken Milano, Sautéed chicken breast with mushrooms and alfredo layered with ham, basil and provolone. Served with fettuccine

Matt ordered Smoked Turkey and Bacon Panini, Smoked turkey, applewood smoked bacon, gorgonzola, mozzarella and roma tomatoes.

I ordered the Lobster Ravioli, Maine lobster filled ravioli. Served with spinach, roma tomatoes, asiago and lemon basil cream sauce
We decided to get dessert, we were going to split it but they had mini desserts, which we ended up getting. Matt stepped away from the table for his after dinner dessert outside..but wanted an espresso. So, my mom and I order mini Tiramisu that come in espresso cups and we order Matt's espresso... Waitress: Oh, we don't have espresso... Us: It's on your dessert menu... Waitress: Well, that is an old menu and we need to update it. I don't know why they have not updated the menus.... Well you should of told us when you gave us the menu, is what I was thinking... so Matt ended up getting a coffee.

The food was good... not the best that we've had, but good. I do think they put MSG in their food... After I eat food with MSG I get spaced out feeling and I was feeling spacey for a little bit that night after eating.
