This restaurant was recommended by our hotel so we went for dinner. We had pasta and salads and everything was excellent. The waitress was very pleasant and ambience is nice--not fancy, but homey and clean. Prices are reasonable, especially considering how large the portions are. We recommend Carini's!

Our high school class come here every month. Great food, good price and it takes only a reasonable amount of time to serve 12 to 20 people. See you in April

I was in town 2 nights and my local contact recommended this. We went in for dinner on day 2. So much better than our first dinner in town, AND excellent for an overall choice. Our server was knowledgeable, efficient, and close but not hovering. I love that they have multi choices for gluten free including pasta and pizza. And... More

I have been here several times this past year, and it has always lived up to my expectations. There are many solid dishes here like the pizza, the spaghetti, and the penne alla vodka, but the best of them all is the chicken piccata. I have had chicken piccata at dozens of restaurants, as it is my favorite dish, but... More

Met family for a nice meal while we were in town. Food was very good and included gluten free friendly items. Service was attentive without being overpowering and annoying. Definitely would recommend.

My wife and I are getting ready to catch a plane back to our home in Florida and stopped in Carini's for lunch. We had the pizza and it was incredible. I was in the pizza business for well over 20 years and know quality ingredients when I taste them. I read that the restaurant was founded by owners from... More

Today I took my family from out of town to eat at Carinis Italian restaurant. I had my parents who live out here and who have been coming here since it opened in the 1970's, as well as my elderly grandparents and brother with special needs, as well as my brother and his wife with three children under the age...

I work only a few miles from Carini's. I was having a craving fit (pregnancy will do that to you). I needed a good meat lasagna, so after checking reviews for a bunch of places, I settled on this one. Called them up, told them what I wanted without looking at a menu, and in within 15 mins I was...

My wife, my 18 month old son and I ate at Carini's Italian Restaurant on January 29, 2017. We arrived about 4:30pm and were immediately seated at a booth, and a highchair was brought for our son. Our server took longer to greet us than I thought it should have; and it took a while for our drinks to arrive... More

Went to this place on a recommendation from the staff at the Richmond Airport Hampton Inn. It's always nice when a recomendation pans out. Great pizza and nice wait staff. Everything I saw whizzing by our table looked delicious. But the couple next to us, regulars, told us to try the pizza. There's looked really good. Hmmmm, don't know about... More
