I never miss going there We order at least weekly from them and always happy. They deliver and since we are close the food always is hot. My favorites are pasta with clams, eggplant parm, and any pizza, Kids like cheese steak and meatball sandwiches.Can't go wrong

We had lasagna and stuffed shells delivered to our hotel room. It was excellent food. There were fairly simple but tasty salads and rolls included. I claimed at the time that I did not remember having better lasagna. Two days later we called in an order and picked it up on our way back from Cape May. More good food.

Best pizza I've had in years and better than the boardwalk pizza I found later in the week. I will be going back.

Seating and serving while eating in were interminably slow. Food quality was standard for a family owned Italian joint: nothing outstanding but nothing to complain about either. When ordering carry out service was quite fast. Interesting observation: due to some liquor license issue (per the restaurant) they could not serve wine by the glass, only the bottle. So if you...

Did not dine in. Restaurant and take area are separated so did not go into restaurant. Restaurant looked nice looking into from outside. Ordered wraps and sandwiches. I had a steak sandwich was excellent. Would go back if visited Wildwood NJ.

We decided to stop at Carini's for some Italian while in Wildwood. We have spent a week each summer in Wildwood for many years, but never stopped here. We won't stop here again.
