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.

Once we found this restaurant, we went back 4 other times for dinner! Joe, the owner, is a super nice guy and very present in this business. Friendly staff. Great food. And the ambiance took us back to some restaurants my husband grew up eating in. If ever in the area again, I hope this restaurant is still open!!!

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

Wow what can I say about Carini's that hasn't already been said before, they are simply wonderful and in my opinion one of the better Italian restaurants I've ever been too and the best in Richmond area (IMO).. you'll pay a little more here than a typical Italian restaurant but you'll soon see where the extra money went ..I live...

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
