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.

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.

I'm glad you enjoyed your dinner here! We do our best to make you feel right at home. Our prices are all based on the ingredients we use -- our pizza wouldn't be nearly as good if we didn't obsess over each ingredient. That said, I'm glad you had some leftovers. See you next time, Anthony, Owner More

I'm glad you've found the pizza you were looking for, and I'm especially happy it was our pizza! I apologize for the delay in getting you your food -- we do tend to get a bit busy on Friday evenings, but that's no excuse to keep you waiting. We'll work on it. Next time you're here, we look forward to... More

We have been long time summer customers, maybe 20 years, when it was just the size of a pizzeria without the expansion in to two or three neighboring units.

I can't apologize enough for your experience. It sounds like we could've done a much better job of telling you where to go after you got your check, and I'm sincerely sorry we left you hanging for 15+ minutes. Although guests can pay at the hostess stand, they also have the option to pay at the table. While it's up... More
