Executive chef and owner Wesley T. Beard draws from his travels in America and abroad to craft internationally inspired upscale eats, which focus on fresh ingredients, high-quality proteins, and multisensory experiences. Glazed, golden hues slather walls that stand guard around a relaxed dining space, where guests nibble and admire décor inspired by metropolitan areas such as New York and Chicago. When they're not distinguishing their entrees with French techniques or Latin-American sauces, the skilled kitchen crew whips up internationally themed dinners that spotlight smorgasbords from such nations as Italy, Russia, and Thailand. The restaurant suggests a wine pairing for each entree to help guide guests to harmonious flavor combinations without hiring a children's choir to sing the menu in its entirety.

While the heart of Johnny Carino's menu is rooted in genuine Italian traditions, forward-thinking creativity has birthed what they like to call their signature dishes. Led by executive chef Chris Peitersen, the seasoned kitchen staff blends fresh ingredients along with extra time to create high-quality, spiced Italian preparations. Diners will find entrees such as 16-layer lasagna with made-from-scratch sauce, and pizzas made with home-baked crust. Other signature choices include the spicy shrimp and chicken, baked stuffed mushrooms topped with house lemon basil cream sauce, and tiramisu made from the ground up. Entrees can be paired any selection from Carino's extensive wine list and drink menu.
