Craft beer and Italian food?

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.

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

Excellent food, drink and service. We ordered take out lasagna and they even gave us paper plates and utensils to serve it with. Best lasagna around!

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

Super friendly driver, quick delivery to our hotel and the salad and spaghetti were amazing. The pizza was good as well. Super value as feeding a family of four for less than forty with tip is super decent. Two big thumbs up to this place.

After reading all the good reviews on Carolina's, I was expecting some pretty good pizza. We chose Carolina's because of the close proximity to our vacation rental. We ordered two different kinds of pizza for delivery and were given a one hour wait time. After one hour passed, we called the restaurant and were told the pizzas were just coming... More
