“Lots of Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Huge portions of good quality food. Bruschetta although a large portion was bland. Chicken Parm was very good. Their red sauce is noticeably sweet. Soda glass was never empty as our waitress was very attentive. Prices are extremely reasonable. Expect to take home a doggie bag. Would go again.

“If you want good basic Italian grubb, this is the place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Was on a business trip here recently and this Resturant was listed on the hotels recommended list so of I went. I ordered shrimp with fettuccini which also came with an caesar salad both helpings were huge. The food was good and very reasonably priced I washed it down with some house wine also priced well. So if you are looking fo some good basic Italian cooking try this place, is it top of the line, no but it is every day good. Service by the way was very good

“Good Italian food in the Richmond airport area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

We ate here last Friday and had an enjoyable meal. I had a big appetite that night, but still could not finish the spinach calzone I ordered. The service was friendly and prompt (even thought the restaurant) was packed. This is a good place to go for everyday Italian in that part of Richmond.

“Very good and open late”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

Needed a later dinner because we couldn't leave until the tornado warnings had passed. Were told about Carini's fromt the front desk and it was very good Italian food. I tried the calzone which was very good, not the best I've ever had, and I tried my friend's vermicelli with red clam sauce and that was verrry tasty.

“Best Italian food in East End”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

My wife and I have been going here for the last 20 plus years. The folks at carini's have never disappointed. Staff is always friendly and food is always great. Spagetti Carini and pizzas are always a favorite, but everything else we have tried has also been wonderful. Can't be beat for value and quality.
