This restaurant came highly recommended by 2 people, so we thought we'd give it a try. The oil and spices were good with bread, but the pomodoro fresco was mostly tasteless. My dining partner didn't like the baked cod. One of the wines recommended by the server was not at all as described. Otherwise the service was good. Not a... More

Gluten free and Italian don't always get along. In this case, though, even with the Sicilian style served at Carini's, I was able to get a safe and delicious meal. They've added the option of GF pasta, and are very willing to adapt the meal to created something safe and tasty. Fridays they offer several fish "fry" options, including a... More

Still searching for a really good Italian restaurant since moving to Milwaukee and this is NOT it. Got the veal spiedini on the recommendation of the waitress - had only had it once before and found it tough. It wasn't tough but there was barely any veal, mostly something ground up, and it was very dry and overcooked. And not... More

We were a group of 6 who brought a lot of laughter with us and we fit right in with the atmosphere! The owner and chef came out to greet us during dinner and shared limoncello with our table, we felt right at home. Now the food...it was traditional in all the best ways. We had the calamari, arancini and... More

I went here for dinner recently with my wife and two other couples before going to the theatre. We had reservations to make sure we could get in and out on time. The service was good, and we had some classic dishes: chicken marsala and veal Siciliano. I had some Sicilian wine to keep the style going. There are a... More

The decor and atmosphere are a pleasure. The food and drinks were memorable! The bartender fixed a perfect Lemoncello Lemon Drop Martini. Our appetizers included scrumptious arancini and and a savory antipasti. Entrees were marinated rack of lamb, (the guys loved that) and a shrimp and pasta dish which was lightly sauced with olive oil and garlic. We were delighted... More

I loved the pizza I ordered at Carini's. I ordered the prosciutto with arugula, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan-reggiano cheese with just the right amount of evoo. The crust was also very tasty. In fact, I liked it so much I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next day... A first for me. Carini's is my kind of restaurant: a neighborhood... More

My third time and tonight the service was great the place was empty and I was not so thrilled with what they called Sicilian stick it seemed like it tasted like liver not tenderloin.... We also had thinly sliced eggplant Parmesan which was delicious & their homemade sauce is fabulous and the tiramisu was out of this world!

I had not been here in a quite a while. Glad I went back. Service is spot on. Food is prepared very well, good choices without an overly extensive menu. Good for business lunch or dinner. Small to medium groups. Very friendly staff.
