My family always has a pizza night during our vacation, and this year we ordered from Carini's. 4 large pizzas don't last long around this group, so they better be big, which these were. The toppings were plentiful, I was just hoping for a little more out of the sauce in the flavor department. I didn't hear anyone complaining as... More

My husband and I wanted delivery Pizza. Do you know how hard it is to find someone who delivers in Wildwood Crest???? Well, Carini's does - and it is worth it!!!!!! Terrific pizza - awesome stromboli - the sauce was just perfect. The Pizza was as good as it gets! I also ordered a "small" antipasto. Well, that could have... More

Count your change. Food is very authentic homemade Italian style. This is a "red sauce" place. We have been eating here since 1985 when they opened in Diamond Beach. Great Pizza and hot Italian sandwiches.

Carini's makes excellent pizza and superb cheese steaks. They are almost on the southern tip of the island, next to the former Wawa. Their cheese steaks could be the best on the island, including beating TL's at their game. Compared to TL, their sandwich is a buck cheaper, just as big, meat more flavorful, about 50% more meat. The only... More

My husband and I grew up in NJ and we have certain expectations of our pizza. We have searched high and low for great pizza during our vacation in Wildwood. Gave Carini's a try last night.....again, not what we hoped for. Not terrible, but CERTAINLY NOT representative of great NJ pizza. Guess we'll have to go back to our favorite... More

We ordered 3 kinds of pizza and every one tasted great and that is a good compliment because we jar our own tomatoes

Our buffalo chicken pizza had good flavor but unfortunately missed the mark due to several non edible grisly pieces of chicken parts that had no business being on a pizza. That's just carelessness in the kitchen.

My family of 7 went for dinner on a Sunday evening. There was a long wait 30-45 minutes, but we were called at 30. There's a comfortable waiting area with couches & small tables with playing cards, which kept my granddaughter occupied. For me, it's more annoying listening to people complain. If you don't want to wait, leave. I found... More

My brother, husband, and I went to lunch with 5 kids. We had about an hour and 20 minutes to enjoy lunch before heading to a reservation for an outing. About 15 minutes into the visit, we ordered 2 pizzas and a small stromboli. The first pizza came out after about 20 minutes. The waitress apologized and said the other... More

We came upon Carini's by accident, with our family only having about 30 mins to eat before a crabbing excursion. We ordered a large pie and the pizza was seriously the best I've had in years, reminding me of true NYC pizza. I work in NYC and I can't find anything that tastes like that anymore. It was our last... More
