To say we were thrilled by our decision to add Carinis to our team itinerary would be an understatement. The atmosphere perfect, the food generous, well-priced, and delicious, and to top of off, our waitress both fun and efficient. Vicki managed our party of 17 with ease and humor. Carinis has a gem of an employee in their midst and... More

The service we received at Carini's was outstanding. He was prompt and knowledgeable with all the items on the menu. He filled our drinks when they were empty and catered to us as if we were the only people in the restauran. He was an older man and he took pride in his job. I ordered fried mushrooms and a... More

Salad, pasta with garlic and oil were very good. Bread was fabulous. Italian sub for take out was very good. My daughter wasn't thrilled with her spaghetti and marinara take out. Said it was cold despite my waiting an extra half hour for it. Chips were missing from take out sandwich order. Overall a good experience. Will visit again when... More

Having eaten here several times with couples dining, this was my first experience with family (grandkids and parental units!). This was their 1st time to Carini's and none of us were prepared for the outstanding holiday and festive evening. The kids enjoyed the game room....take plenty of quarters or use the change machine. Much to our pleasure Santa and Mrs... More

Just had our "employee recognition" party there in their one of many rooms, and boy is this restaurant big! The service was fast, portions large, and server very courteous and quick to refill drinks and check if anyone needed anything. For what I can recall of people around me, these meals were popular: stromboli, shrimp scampi, white pizza (with ham... More

The other reviews are pretty much spot on. Carini's is a very good restaraunt with above average pizza. They are not quite "new york" since the ovens are not wood fired. The pizza comes out slightly caky, versus crisp crust. Toppings were good. We started out with a Caesars salad, which was very good and more than adequate for two.... More

A friend was coming in to town and staying near the airport and I didn't want to go to a chair restaurant so I thought I would try Carini's for dinner for the first time. I called around 3:00 PM on Saturday and asked if a reservation for 5 would be accepted or needed for that night. I was told... More

What a great hidden gem in the Richmond area. We just happened to come upon this restaurant when we asked "Siri" for local Italian restaurants. The atmosphere was perfect. Not quite a pizza shop atmosphere, but also not a fine-dining atmosphere. Very family friendly and laid back. Food was DELICIOUS, portions were extremely GENEROUS, and the service was EXCELLENT.
