“One of a few good reasons to visit the Wildwoods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

When you're in Wildwood and hungry for Pizza, it's fine to get a quick slice on the boardwalk, but when you want the good stuff call Carini's and have them deliver you a nice New York style pizza to your room and sit on the balcony and enjoy it while watching the waves. It's as good as you'll find in town. And if you want a little more than just pizza take the short drive down to the restaurant and try the full menu. There's nothing bad on it. But be prepared to take some home with you. The portions are huge. Good food makes for a great trip.

“Middle of the road”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Long wait for a waitress to stop by our table. She was friendly but not very professional. Also, her fingernails were dirty! Gross! I asked if they had kids cups for the kids. She brought out the little plastic kids cups with the straws. Great-EXCEPT they had been used many times over. All the writing and cartoons on the outside of the cups were almost completely rubbed off. I've never seen those cups recycled! Another Gross for Carini's. On the upside, the meatlover's pizza was like no other. Delicious! Save yourself the dine-in experience and opt for take-out.

“Really good Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This restaurant has reasonably priced, good Italian food. This is a good place to go with your family because they have something for everyone from regular pizza slices to full dinner dishes.

“Will Not Go Back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Waitress was very unprofessional. She burned our basket of bread and instead of just making another basket, she brought it out and said, "Sorry I burned your bread, if you want another I can make it". I then said don't bother. It should not have been brought out to us in the first place as burned as it was. This same waitress sat a family at table and they asked to sit at a larger booth and she said "No..that's for larger parties of 6-8 people" There was only 2 other couples besides us in the restaurant at the time. So the gentleman told his family "That's it...we're leaving" and they did. As far as the food, I ordered the Tour of Italy, the ravioli and stuffed shell was okay, I did not like the Italian sausage and the meatball needed more seasoning. The restaurant is very casual and noisy with a lot of the noise coming from the kitchen with lots of loud talking and laughing. It feels like it is a pizza shop which turned into a restaurant. There should be a door from the dining room separating the kitchen so that the people dining can have a quieter dinner! Will not go back to this place!
