A Little Italy in Your Backyard

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... read more

My wife and i travel theu Richmond 3-4 a year and never really had good Italian food in Richmond. We were hoping this place would be much better than the others we have tried in Richmond. 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.

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
