“Good Pizza”
Reviewed June 19, 2009

My family and I had pizza at Carini's and it was comparable to the pizza in North Jersey, where we are from. A large 16" pie is $11.75, which is very reasonable. It's mostly a pizza and hero place, although you can get other pasta and meat dishes, as other reviewers have pointed out. The pizza is very good though and is a good value if you're dining on a budget. The service was very pleasant and efficient, although we went in the beginning of June, so I'm sure that they get extremely busy during peak season. Either way, if you're looking for a North Jersey-like pizza, this is the place to go.

“#1 in the Crest?”
Reviewed August 13, 2008

We visited because the restaurant had the #1 ranking in Trip Advisor. What we found was a rather crowded establishment, slow service and average food. It's a nice night out next to the miniature golf course but at the same time its not very memorable. We tried the pizza, chicken parm and lasagna and found it to be average. Don't know if we'll be back.

“Very good pizza and food”
Reviewed August 11, 2008

We had the pizza as take out and it was very good, well above average.

We also eat in one night. The staff was very nice and helpful. We both had a special that was pasta with shrimp, lobster and asparagus in a red sause. Everything about the dish was great, EXCEPT the lobster pieces which were tough and over done. It really did not take away from the overall dish which was very tasty with large shrimp and a well seasoned suace. Apparently it was a new dish because the waiter said we were the first people he had who had ordered in and he was very interested in our opinion.

As I indicated the one flaw did not take away from our enjoyment of the restaurant.

“Consistently Good Take-Out”
Reviewed August 5, 2008

We always have at least one "take out" night when the family is in the Crest and invariably, Carini's, is on the list. The family had everything from pizza, to penne, spaghetti and meatballs, linguini and clam sauce and then some. Always very good. But why no ranch dressing guys?

“Best and only place to eat”
Reviewed July 14, 2008

I've been coming down to Wildwood every year since 1986. It is owned and operated by the same family. They take pride in their food and customer service. I will say that every once in a while, I get a waitress who lacks a little personality, but there is no better Italian food in NJ. I worked in a pizzeria at the Jersey Shore for 10 years and have eaten just about everywhere east of the Garden State Parkway, but I have never had better Italian food than at Carini's. See for yourself!
