Ordered lasagna because it was a special WITH a meatball. Came without. "Well you have to say you want the special " OMG girl My boyfriend asked for italian with crumbled blue cheese on salad, got a pkg of Ken's creamy blue cheese. Portion of lasagna was quite a bit smaller than most other places.

My husband and I went to Carini's tonight for a private dinner without the kids after a long day at work. We were extremely disappointed with the service that we received. Our server was pleasant enough but she did not follow-up after our appetizer was dropped off (I had to ask for more napkins, and my husband had to get... More

A solid family choice for a decent meal and a good price. The owners are there and they seem to care about their food and the quality. They use good ingredients and even have some gluten free items.

This place has the best pizza in the area much better that Brooklyn pizza down the street. Sandwiches and wings just ok. Never tried the main courses. Staff is friendly enough.

I was driving through and saw this place so I decided to give it a try. The food was not bad....I would definitely go back for the taste. As I was sitting waiting for my inattentive waitress to bring me my check AND a refill (I had been dry for more than half of my meal....she never came, I had... More

You get the sense that the employees (or family) that make up the staff enjoy working there and they are always pleasant and upbeat. I'm not crazy about the atmosphere as its... More

The pizza crust is wonderful as are the garlic knots. The wings are done up crispy with just the right amount of spice. We even asked them to make us garlic fries - the best!
