Good Italian with plenty of food

We have eaten here many of times. It has a great variety of traditional Italian food and some great pizza's. My wife's favorite is the shrimp scampi pizza. The place is small and can get a little noisy, but overall it great place to enjoy a nice dinner out.

We decided to try here after reading all the excellent reviews and we were not dissappointed. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the food we delicious. We shared meals as we could see that the portions were huge and this wasn't a problem. Definitely as per the title, well worth a visit.

We arrived at our hotel after a very long day of travel and had a raging headache. Knew we had to eat and saw the pizza delivery. It was a godsend. They have a family meal special for $25.99. It included a large 1 topping pizza, spaghetti with meatballs, garlic cheese bread, a salad and 4 cans of soda. I... More

Me and 4 teenagers. Too late and tired to go out. Looked for places with delivery. Came across this place; reviews were/are good. We ordered a pepperoni pizza, chicken alfredo and, chicken marsala. Delivery was prompt and, food was hot. That was a big plus. I ordered the chicken marsala. A favorite. When looking at their menu, didn't catch it's... More

For years this old place didn't even have a liquor license. The kids got into beer though and now they have a huge collection of canned and bottled beer available to enjoy. The food is pretty much old school Italian. The menu is huge with lots of pasta choices.

After a long day, we got the "Family Special" delivered. It came with a lot of food. Large pie, spaghetti, garlic bread, salad. And only for 25.99! It also came with utensils! It was still hot when we got it too. It was really good. My only complaint was the garlic bread. It was just cheese and bread, not really... More

Fantastic pizza and delivered hot to our hotel! After a long day at the parks, it was so nice to call Carolina's and have pizza delivered right to the hotel. And not just any pizza, excellent pizza.

I cannot say enough good things about Carolina's! As first time customers, we ordered delivery to our hotel. We ordered the meat calzone (HUGE portion!) and chicken piccata (also large portion). We ordered at 5:30 pm, a very busy time, and were given a 45 minute to an hour wait time. Our food, which came with a ton of cheesy... More

While in Disneyland my bf and I had the brightest idea of ordering pizza at 1030 on a Monday night before they closed at 11. We knew they might not deliver to our hotel due to it almost being closing time but to our surprise they took out order and delivered promptly. Only downside was they have no bacon or... More
