Zack's VCU graduation lunch

We had a wonderful event in the banquet room. The food was delicious I see why our Great Nephew said it was his favorite restaurant growing up. They serve large portions at very reasonable prices. The fresh baked garlic rolls are amazing. A Henrico landmark.

This is restaurant I plan on coming back to so we can try other dishes. The steak was cooked correctly and the spinach manicotti was delicious and made the way I like it. Just plan good food!

I have grown up eating the food so it is hard for me to enjoy lasagna anywhere else. Family owned establishment with a wonderful staff

Since moving to the area in 2012 I have driven past this restaurant on many occasions without ever considering stopping. It was actually TripAdvisor reviews that finally convinced me to give it a chance. Last night we had a surprise night off from our daughter and decided to have a date night. We walked in under a canopy of plastic... More

You want good pasta with fresh sauce? How about fresh bread and a great antipasto salad? This is your place. The menu is big and varied. The service is good, and the food is fresh and hot. The atmosphere is friendly and inviting without being "too much." The prices are very good. Whether it is a special evening or lunch... More

It's 730pm on a Sunday night and as soon as I got out of the car I heard Christmas santa Claus Music . Its... More

Its a shame I moved to another part of town .When I lived on that side of town I frequented Carini's often . I really enjoyed the food. And the service was always on point as well. I really need to make a trip over to that part of town again soon.

I enjoyed Carini's as it was close to my hotel and had good food. Our service was good and the food solid. It was nice to have a casual Italian place for a business dinner. The decor is kitschy but works.

While I wouldn't discourage you to go here, I wouldn't encourage it, either. Overall nice environs, I will say, though as always, I question the need for TV's, and especially having a random pop radio station playing in the background. I won't question the music itself, but get satellite radio so we don't have to listen to the advertisements between... More

My husband & I had dinner here at the recommendation of our hotel. The food was great and extremely large portions. The staff was very attentive. It is located in a small strip shopping center but don't let that deter you.
