Great food. I have ordered many times, great food, nice staff. No frills here its basic but the food is of great quality. I recommend this place looking for food you would get at a pizza shop.

Had lunch here in mid September. By then a lot of the restaurants are closed for the season. I am pretty sure they are open year round. Food was very good. Would go here again.

Pizza to order: We like "Light on the cheese, not too much cheese." Hot and delicious, just right! Price: just right, also.

Carinis catered our family reunion at the Reges Resort and the food was excellent. They were on time, plenty of food and the quality and price were awesome. Will definitely use again for our future reunions.

Hey there, Marie I really loved reading your kind words, but I'm a bit confused by your star rating. Please feel free to reach out to us about anything that let you down. At the end of the day, three stars just isn't the experience we want to give our customers. All that said, thanks for the compliments on our... More

We waited for 35 minutes and they just brought out 2 slices of pizza. I would never go back there again..

Anthony C, Owner at Carini's Italian Restaurant, responded to this review

This really doesn't sound like us, Daryl. Although we do sometimes get busy, 35 minutes is way too long to wait for two slices. I'm sorry this was your experience, and I hope you'll give us another shot if you're ever in town because I know we can do much better. All the best, Anthony, Owner More

One of the better places in the area. Food is very good. We went in yesterday and had chicken francaise, pasta and a wonderful salad with grilled chicken. Call your order in at least an hour to hour and half before you want to eat during summer months. Very busy spot for a good reason.

Thanks for sharing your experience! While we do get busy during the summer, know that we're always doing our best to get your food out quickly. That aside, I couldn't be happier to read that you loved our food! We might be known for our pizza, but we always enjoy knowing that our pastas and salads are just as delicious.... More

The pizza hands down beats Macks and Sams (obviously they are "boardwalk" pizza). Whereas, Carinis isn't. Will keep trying other "pizza" but there is no better...I'll have a white with spinach and black olives EVERY day if I wouldn't gain 50 lbs by the end of each summer!

OK, I'm Italian and live in Staten Island, where there's an Italian restaurant & pizzeria around any corner. My grandmother was born in Naples and I know how to cook. Trust me when I tell you Carini's did not disappoint me. The pizza was good, and my 'fuss pot' family was very happy with their entrees. Definitely worth the wait.
