Ignore the fact that this place is in a strip mall, next to a laundromat. It's a very good Italian restaurant with ample seating, a great menu, appropriate wine list that has offerings in every price range, and efficient and friendly service. The cannelloni were especially memorable! We went after battling tremendous traffic for a lot of hours, and after... More

This restaurant was recommend to us by the bartender at the Hilton Garden Inn at the airport. At first glance, the location seemed odd, but we were hungry. So we gave it a try (six guys on a golf trip staying at the airport for convenience). We all were pleasantly surprised. Both the service and the food were excellent. The... More

My family and I made last minute reservations for my daughter and her soccer team. Place was awesome, food was delicious and the staff was so friendly. Can't wait to come back and we travel down often.

I was recommended this place by a customer of mine who lived near me. I am so glad I listened to them and ate here. I had the Pollo Primavera which I thought was amazing! The only thing is there could have been a little more steamed veggies in the sauce. My boyfriend ordered the Meatlover Stromboli he got the... More

Based on prior reviews, I selected Carini's as the location for our soccer team dinner while at Jefferson Cup. We were a group of 48 and expected delays due to the volume connected with Jeff Cup. I can only say that Carini's handles large group events very professionally. They had a system in place to separately bill each family for... More

Shopping center 2 doors down from laundry. Why not. Salads are large. Eggplant park is enough for two. Staff is very friendly. Go enjoy

We dined here while in Richmond due to positive tripadvisor reviews. While the place is dated and in a strange location, the food seemed authentic and the wait staff, although casual, was friendly and attentive. The deluxe salad we shared first (even the small was huge) was wonderful, Italian style and very fresh, and the house vinaigrette was the best... More

Don't let the small shopping center fool you. Inside the restaurant there are many rooms and lots of tables. The inside has a lot of character. The waitress have always been outstanding. The pesto pasta is the best I have ever had, The premium wine was wonderful and a great value. The cream brulee was cold on the inside and... More
