“Good pizza and wings!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

We ordered a large cheese pizza and wings to go -- and the pizza was absolutely delicious! The wings were crispy and came with buffalo sauce and blue cheese. Loved!

“Eat the Pizza, Nothing Else”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

I have been going to Carini's for years for pizza, and they make a good slice -- its thin and well-cooked. However, don't go here for dinner. The entrees are a bit expensive for a pizzeria ($15 on average), and are just mediocre. I had their meat lasagna, and it was okay, but Stouffer's in a box tastes better. The staff can be somewhat obnoxious. I ordered the tomato bisque soup at 5:30 PM, and the waitress told me that it tasted really good, but they were out of it.

“a nice experience for a family of 9”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

We recently (7/27/12) had dinner at Carini's after trying to decide on a reasonable place to eat with a group that ranged from an 80yr old to a 2 yr old. While the hostess was very young, she was pleasant and professional. We were seated within 5 minutes and had a great friendly waitress. She was patient and helpful. The food was pretty good, from the fried calamari to the sausage and pepper sandwich. The only draw back was being a Friday night, the wait for a piazza in the restaurant was 30 minutes. Carini's has a take out/pizzaria as well as a sit down area. Not wanting to wait, I opted for the sandwich. Soda also comes with free refills. Nice touch.

When the check arrived the waitress went out of her way to show that the gratuity had already been added. It was even highlighted on the bill! This impressed me as I had been to similar restaurants where the server neglected to remind us, most likely in the hopes of receiving a duplicate tip.

Coming from an Italian family the sauce does not compare, but it may be good for the area, the biggest complaint would of had to be the staff. How do you let a family with 3 kids all separate DVD players cranking Ice Age while everyone else around them is trying to eat? Granted the parents should have not allowed this to begin with or put headphones on the kids, It was simply rude by the parents and surprised it was allowed by restaurant staff.
