We ate here 2 nights in a row because the food and service were both that good! Prices were very good aswell, and you get a lot of food for your money! We came here after seeing a menu in a brochure at our hotel. The car park was full so we were worried we might not get a table.... More

This place was packed when we where there BUT the service was still good. Food was good. Not great, but good. You get SO much food; prices were great. It's loud and crowded but the staff does a very good job of keeping things moving. I will go back.

I really enjoyed my dinner here. The menu was varied, both price and selection. If you enjoy beer, they have a huge collection to choose from to take home. I'd definite go again and pick something else savor. The service was excellent. Desert choices were good.

We ordered from the take out menu and ordered the large spaghetti, Garlic cheese bread and salad for a large group of teenage lacrosse players and coaches. It was delicious and an amazing value. We were able to give all that wanted seconds, seconds with some left over!! The staff on the phone were very helpful and had us change... More

After looking at a promotional ad in a tabloid we decided to give this place a try. And Wow ! We were pleasantly surprised. Though we had to wait a little while for the table, but the quality & the quantity of food more than made up the waiting pains. Great food, greater serving size and the cherry on the... More

This place REALLY is a hidden gem! We ate here while visiting CA at Christmas time. I was a little apprehensive at first, the place looked kind of sketchy & was adjacent to a liquor store. That changed the minute we walked in and got hit with the most delicious aroma ever! The host was friendly and right away asked... More

I was brought here by a colleague without knowing anything about it. The service was good, the half portions were much larger than expected and the quality of the food was impressive. I am critical of Italian food but this was delicious!

Carolina's is a cozy little restaurant with excellent customer service. I think the servers that work there are mostly family members of the restaurant's owners. It's one of my usual go to places when I'm feeling like having Italian food because I always have a good experience there. Make sure you're hungry because they give you ALOT of food. The... More
