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

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

I've been enjoying gluten free pasta meals at Carini's for a while. How delighted I was tonight to find out that they now have gluten free pizza. First time I had eaten pizza since September when I was in Carlsbad, California. Happy days are here again!

Enjoyed very good veal picata and my wife enjoyed lasagna at this family style Italian restaurant near the Richmond Airport. The dishes were well prepared and the service was very good. Also enjoyed cannoli with great filling for dessert.

Went here on recent trip. Good was great and the waitresses went beyond what would be expected to make sure your dinner was outstanding. Plus they were all in their Halloween costumes for the holiday. Near the airport but far from airport food.

An early flight out of Richmond encouraged us to overnight near the airport. I looked to Trip Advisor for a dinner option and found CARINI'S - so lucky for us!! This was a wonderful experience in every way. Our server LORI was charming. The restaurant was busy (even on a week night) with locals and large parties. The owner, "Joe",... More
