We were in the area for a week at the end of July for a family get together. I ordered pizzas, appys, a loaf of garlic bread and two dinners. Let's start with the order arriving at the hotel ice cold. Not warm, COLD. The bag had two (2) napkins in it. This was an order for 7 people. No... More

Carini's is a must whenever we are in Wildwood. The food is always amazing and the staff is very friendly, especially when we place very large to go orders. The steamers are out of this world! I highly recommend eating here.

food was OK--the pizza was better than I expected. had the mussels in white wine sauce as a starter, which was pretty good. the Italian bread they give you with the meal is supermarket quality but I think anyplace outside of northern NJ or NY is not going to have very good bread. I think I've been spoiled. I would... More

The East coast is blessed with many great Italina restaurants and Carini's is not one of them. The value is good but the food is mediocre and while they are busy it is more do to the throngs of people that swamp the Wildwoods to enjoy the beaches. As a side note, you will find better pizza on the boardwalk...

Fair to middling Italian casual dining. Prices were considerably high for the type and quality of food. Server was a young girl, pleasant but a bit ditzy. Salads were served room temp, which is something that I find unacceptable. I had mussels far diavlo over linguine. A huge portion of mussels but small and quite briny. My friend had shrimp... More

We got to Wildwood every August and always come back to Carini's! Food is good and the atmosphere is good. There is always a wait though and they don't take reservations so just know that going in. Pick a week day before 7pm and you shouldn't have to wait too long. Definitely a family place although I've seen plenty of... More

My family has eaten here for the past couple years and it's been great every time. The penné a la vodka is very good along with their pizza. Would definitely recommend.

I've been coming here for the past 5 years. The food is generally good, but not consistent. My wife likes getting Brushetta, sometimes it is great, other times it is terrible. Pizza is generally okay to get, probably one of the better off the boardwalk pizzas in the area.
