“Excellent Italian Eatery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Great Italian food - local pizzeria type restaurant in Wildwood Crest - not fancy; just good food - eat-in or take out; reasonable prices.

“take-out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We went in to order pizza; it was excellent; loved the crust. They have an extended take-out menu as well as a restaurant with BYOB. They offer homemade pastas.

“Fine pizza; friendly and funny waitress; fair prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We visited Carini's with another couple--our first visit there. The restaurant's furnishings and decor are more than a wee bit tired, but the thin crust pizza was very good. The waitress was lively (even though it was the end of a long day for her) and funny. The prices were quite reasonable. Despite the fact that it was a Monday evening and not yet tourist season, Carini's was about 3/4 full. This is not a "destination" restaurant, but a good place to consider if you're looking for good pizza at a reasonable price.

“Enjoyable Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

When arriving in Wildwood Crest, we stopped at Carini's Italian Restaurant for lunch. The service was good & the waitress pleasant. The Italian Wedding Soup was good. The Sausage Sandwich was good - would have preferred Hot Italian Sausage (the sandwich had Sweet Italian Sausage). The Cheesesteak Hoagie was very good. For 3 of us, our bill was $42 including tax & tip.

We're looking forward to going back & trying their pizza. It's very close to Seapointe Village where we're staying (within easy walking distance).
