Got takeout pizza and wings for lunch one day while on vacation in the area. Solid pizza with tasty sauce. Wings were good too. Will go back again when in the area.

Pizza is nothing great, Pizza Hut quality honestly. Crust is thick and under cooked.. our server didn't even check on us and took 20 minutes to get her to come over to give us our check. Go elsewhere.

We live nearby and have ordered takeout several times because of the convenient location. The only items we would rate as very good are the hot sandwiches like sausage and peppers, chicken or eggplant. Unfortunately, the pizza toppings are noticeably skimpy compared to almost most other pizzas we have had elsewhere. Noticing that the sauce has been skimpy on takeout... More

We were in the area for a week at the end of July for a family get together. I ordered pizzas, appys, a loaf of garlic bread and two dinners. Let's start with the order arriving at the hotel ice cold. Not warm, COLD. The bag had two (2) napkins in it. This was an order for 7 people. No... More

Carini's is a must whenever we are in Wildwood. The food is always amazing and the staff is very friendly, especially when we place very large to go orders. The steamers are out of this world! I highly recommend eating here.

food was OK--the pizza was better than I expected. had the mussels in white wine sauce as a starter, which was pretty good. the Italian bread they give you with the meal is supermarket quality but I think anyplace outside of northern NJ or NY is not going to have very good bread. I think I've been spoiled. I would... More

The East coast is blessed with many great Italina restaurants and Carini's is not one of them. The value is good but the food is mediocre and while they are busy it is more do to the throngs of people that swamp the Wildwoods to enjoy the beaches. As a side note, you will find better pizza on the boardwalk...

Fair to middling Italian casual dining. Prices were considerably high for the type and quality of food. Server was a young girl, pleasant but a bit ditzy. Salads were served room temp, which is something that I find unacceptable. I had mussels far diavlo over linguine. A huge portion of mussels but small and quite briny. My friend had shrimp... More
