Having eaten here several times with couples dining, this was my first experience with family (grandkids and parental units!). This was their 1st time to Carini's and none of us were prepared for the outstanding holiday and festive evening. The kids enjoyed the game room....take plenty of quarters or use the change machine. Much to our pleasure Santa and Mrs... More

Just had our "employee recognition" party there in their one of many rooms, and boy is this restaurant big! The service was fast, portions large, and server very courteous and quick to refill drinks and check if anyone needed anything. For what I can recall of people around me, these meals were popular: stromboli, shrimp scampi, white pizza (with ham... More

The other reviews are pretty much spot on. Carini's is a very good restaraunt with above average pizza. They are not quite "new york" since the ovens are not wood fired. The pizza comes out slightly caky, versus crisp crust. Toppings were good. We started out with a Caesars salad, which was very good and more than adequate for two.... More

A friend was coming in to town and staying near the airport and I didn't want to go to a chair restaurant so I thought I would try Carini's for dinner for the first time. I called around 3:00 PM on Saturday and asked if a reservation for 5 would be accepted or needed for that night. I was told... More

What a great hidden gem in the Richmond area. We just happened to come upon this restaurant when we asked "Siri" for local Italian restaurants. The atmosphere was perfect. Not quite a pizza shop atmosphere, but also not a fine-dining atmosphere. Very family friendly and laid back. Food was DELICIOUS, portions were extremely GENEROUS, and the service was EXCELLENT. Managed... More

Set in a older strip mall, don't be misled by its surroundings. Old time Italian family atmosphere and food. Prompt, attentive servers handle anything from a couples dinner to a kid-family outing with ease. I've always felt comfortable bringing family, friends, or business associates here & everyone always leaves with a satisfied smile on their face!

Might not look like much from the outside and the inside is kind of cool but also kind of over decorated, but it's clean and the wait staff was really nice and made good food recommendations. Food is delicious and portions were huge
