Living in VA it's difficult to find really good pizza. Carini's deep dish pizza was divine. I just wished we were staying in the area longer so I could indulge in more of their Italian dishes.

We felt like having pizza, and with no recommendations, we just used the yellow pages to find a local shop. We ordered sausage pizza and calzone for delivery to our hotel. The delivery was quick and the food was delicious. The pizza crust was a little thicker than we're accustomed to, but it was great. It was even good cold.... More

We didn't expect the food to be this good since it looks like it's part of the stripmall but that's why they say you can't judge a book by its cover. We had excellent clams and calamari with pasta. We ordered a bacon cheeseburger for our son which was cooked to perfection. We were spending a few nights at Hotel... More

Why is it so difficult to get pizza at the jersey shore? Ordered a plain and buffalo chicken. The buffalo chicken was tasteless - nothing else to say. The plain was mediocre, but actually was much better when we heated it up the next day. Pizza is SO expensive at the shore - 2 pies and 2 orders of fries... More

We've discovered Carini's this past summer and it's now our new favorite. The food is great and the prices are fair. I would highly recommend Carini's.

We always make sure to stop in and get their pizza. It's wonderful and they have a lot of appetizers! A little of something for everyone.

We have been going to Carini's for over 25 years! We watched the kids that now run it grow up. Wonderful people! When our daughter comes home from college the question "when are we going to Carini's" always comes up. Tonight we went with our mother in law. We had baked penne, penne in vodka sauce, spaghetti and meatballs and... More

We ordered take out, a white veggie, a 1/2 plain, 1/2 pepperoni, and 1 mushroom pie. All were excellent, but the white veggie was outstanding. Need pizza, order here!
