I've been to Carlino's numerous times for sandwiches over the years and have always loved them, but yesterday was the first time I have ever tasted their tomato pie and it will definitely NOT be the last. Their tomato pie is the real deal. It's not just a pizza with no cheese...it is a fresh crust with real tomatoes, which = FABULOUS. This is a must if you are visiting. I also picked up a Carlino's pre-made caesar salad which my husband and I both described as "the best caesar salad we have ever had." It was extremely fresh and delicious. Do yourself a favor and visit Carlino's West Chester or Ardmore if you ever get the chance.

I have shopped here as a market for 10 years and have has them cater several events. The food is always fresh, the made to order sandwiches are uniquely Italian, their meatloaf is outstanding. Desserts are wonderful and the entire staff is very attentive. Their is outside dining and a small cafe area that look out onto Market Street. It is always busy but definitely worth any wait you might have.

If you want great cheese which is different, biscuits, cakes, cold cuts this place is an excellent store for everything including some home linen. There is also a small place where one can sit and enjoy the snacks. it's very popular with shoppers who want something out of ordinary for their food requirements and kitchen

The smells of Italy are strong here with all the cheeses, meats, bakery, etc.
They are a bit overpriced but the food is good.
You can have freshly made sandwiches just the way you may like it.

Stopped for lunch on a rainy May day. Place was packed. It was a different dining experience for us - you pick out your food at a counter (ready made and also a counter for made to order), paid for it, then found a table. We arrived at the end of the lunch rush and almost did not stay because every table was in use. Luckily we looked around a little while and checked back on a table and there were several. Carlin's is loaded with specialty items. Has a bakery, a coffee bar, lots of really fabulous looking sweets and breads. Prepared food counter. Soups. And more. I had the ready made Italian sandwich - can't remember what exactly was on it but it was really great. The roll was fantastic and really made the sandwich. My husband had a roast beef sandwich with a horseradishy mayo sauce which he said was excellent. Same roll. He really liked it. I tried the cream of mushroom soup which I have to say was not that good. Not much flavor and lots of lumps from the roux. Definitely would recommend this stop. So much to choose from.
