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

Gem of a restaurant in Anaheim. A taxi driver suggested this little place. Upon arriving, we were a little apprehensive but the inside is completely different from the outside. The food, service and wine/beer selection are great. Full meal was included - salad, bread, entree, desert. We greatly enjoyed the pesto and alfredo sauces. Highly recommend the Taste of Italy...

"Do Not Cater Your Food Here" When I first came here I was crazy over their cheese bread and Chicken Mostocioli. I fell in love with it that I had to cater it for my Family Christmas Party. I told my family that this was my favorite Italian restuarant better than Olive Garden. Well I made a mistake and should... More

Great food. One of the few mom and pop places left in Orange County. They are rumored to have more than 100 varieties of beer. I think I have tested 20. Home delivery is a major plus. Real food delivered to your house!

Love this restaurant. Can't beat the food. Made with fresh ingredients. A local favorite. Check out the extensive selection of beer. You won't be sorry you ate at Carolina's. Take out too.

Got a Groupon for here and very glad that we did as the food was excellent. Portions were monstrous! The only negative thing I can come up with is the healthy food options are lacking...but we were on vacation, so it's all good. It was very close to our hotel (Marriott Suites)

Carolinas is just great. They have delicious food, and wonderful service. My family and I celebrate our birthdays there and it amazing. The atmosphere is great, they really make you fell at home. Especially when the owner himself comes to greet you with a cake in hand. They really know what they'really doing!!
