My husband and I visited Carini's this weekend for the first time in nearly 20 years! It DID NOT disappoint. The shrimp parmesan was fantastic and the homemade gnocchi was the best I ever had. Prices are reasonable (my dinner was $19.95 which is comparable to many other restaurants). Staff is friendly and attentive. Very clean including the bathroom.

When you walk in you smell garlic cooking and if you like Italian food, you automatically get hungrier. We have eating here multiple times and have never been disappointed. Pizza is great. Subs and hot sandwiches are great. Pasta dishes are great. Good selection of sides, appetizers and salads.

I never miss going there We order at least weekly from them and always happy. They deliver and since we are close the food always is hot. My favorites are pasta with clams, eggplant parm, and any pizza, Kids like cheese steak and meatball sandwiches.Can't go wrong

We had lasagna and stuffed shells delivered to our hotel room. It was excellent food. There were fairly simple but tasty salads and rolls included. I claimed at the time that I did not remember having better lasagna. Two days later we called in an order and picked it up on our way back from Cape May. More good food.

Best pizza I've had in years and better than the boardwalk pizza I found later in the week. I will be going back.

Seating and serving while eating in were interminably slow. Food quality was standard for a family owned Italian joint: nothing outstanding but nothing to complain about either. When ordering carry out service was quite fast. Interesting observation: due to some liquor license issue (per the restaurant) they could not serve wine by the glass, only the bottle. So if you...
