To start out - I'm an italian who lives in Northern New Jersey where we have incredible Italian restaurants on every corner. If your looking for Real Italian food while on a Florida Vacation give Carino's Italian Cafe a try. They are in a little strip mall - easy to park and very welcoming. I would recommend a reservation. The service was excellent. We felt very comfortable like it was our own dining room table. Everyone liked their food (14 people - 14 for 14 loved the food.) The veal is very good - melts in your mouth. Some of the veal dishes were a little bland (like the Veal Carino). The fra diavolo dishes are served just right - not overpowering hot. The pasta is served as expected. They kept warm bread coming throughout the meal. They serve homemade Sangria (and shared the recipe with us). The wine menu was fine - good choice of beer and mixed drinks (no bar in the restaurant). I would recommend the deserts - The homemade Tiramisu is very good, Cannoli's and cheese cake all got good reviews by our party. We saw several couples also enjoying themselves in a little more romantic mood. Restaurant is set up to accommodate couples and families. Worth a try.
