Consistently good

My family of 7 went for dinner on a Sunday evening. There was a long wait 30-45 minutes, but we were called at 30. There's a comfortable waiting area with couches & small tables with playing cards, which kept my granddaughter occupied. For me, it's more annoying listening to people complain. If you... read more

We ordered 3 kinds of pizza and every one tasted great and that is a good compliment because we jar our own tomatoes

Our buffalo chicken pizza had good flavor but unfortunately missed the mark due to several non edible grisly pieces of chicken parts that had no business being on a pizza. That's just carelessness in the kitchen.

My brother, husband, and I went to lunch with 5 kids. We had about an hour and 20 minutes to enjoy lunch before heading to a reservation for an outing. About 15 minutes into the visit, we ordered 2 pizzas and a small stromboli. The first pizza came out after about 20 minutes. The waitress apologized and said the other... More

We came upon Carini's by accident, with our family only having about 30 mins to eat before a crabbing excursion. We ordered a large pie and the pizza was seriously the best I've had in years, reminding me of true NYC pizza. I work in NYC and I can't find anything that tastes like that anymore. It was our last... More

Got takeout pizza and wings for lunch one day while on vacation in the area. Solid pizza with tasty sauce. Wings were good too. Will go back again when in the area.

Pizza is nothing great, Pizza Hut quality honestly. Crust is thick and under cooked.. our server didn't even check on us and took 20 minutes to get her to come over to give us our check. Go elsewhere.

We live nearby and have ordered takeout several times because of the convenient location. The only items we would rate as very good are the hot sandwiches like sausage and peppers, chicken or eggplant. Unfortunately, the pizza toppings are noticeably skimpy compared to almost most other pizzas we have had elsewhere. Noticing that the sauce has been skimpy on takeout... More

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
