Great food

We really enjoyed the take-out we got at Carolina's. Everything from pizza to salads was well-prepared and tasty. Would definitely go back.

This is a resturants that I have to go to when ever I am in the area. They have good food and excellent customer service. I have never been disappointed dinning here. It looks like a hole in the wall but it is clean and cozy inside. Well worth it

In town for a high school competion and had the responsibility of feeding 12 teenagers plus a few adults. My requirements were good food, priced affordably, and delivered to our hotel. Carolina's exceeded all of my requirements. The food was plentiful, fresh and delicious. Our group ate for around $10 a person and they delivered in a timely manner. Super... More

Wow. The restaurant is right next to a liquor store so dont be fooled by the outside. Once you enter the pleasing smell of garlic will tickle your nose. The inside is very quaint. The food is served quick and piping hot. The portions are large but the prices are reasonable. The lasagna was delicious. The free garlic cheesey bread... More

This is Italian Food at it's best. Four of us visited at lunch and all ordered different entrees. We are all giving a rave review of our dish. Each entrée was served with a very nice salad plus spumoni ice cream for dessert. That is my husbands favorite so quietly I sang happy birthday to him. His birthday is in... More

Food was amazing. Huge portions and great quality. Steak, salmon, and scallops were superb. My kids ravioli tasted freshly made. Service was quick. Best meal we had on our trip to LA, and affordable too. Strongly recommend, you will not be disappointed. Excellent beer selection.

Family owned, family run, which means family values. Good food at an excellent price. Not so long on atmosphere, but great on taste.

Eating pizzas in America is kind of compulsory. But you have pizza and pizza. Carolina's pizzas are definitely the best pizzas I've eaten in this part of LA. Delivery is quite fast, and the pizzas are really really good.

Service is the best...we have been visiting for many years, because the food is excellent. We have tried most of the dishes and have enjoyed all of them. We also do take-out and the service is outstanding. No long lines ...the Italian ice cream is the best, also!

The food here was excellent and very large portions, there was enough for lunch the next day and each entree came with a salad. The wine is also very reasonably priced and the atmosphere was local. This is not some snobby place but a welcoming local joint and I recommend that you take the 5 minute drive from Disneyland to... More
