Friendly service, reasonable prices & great pizza to rival any New Haven pizza joint! Thin crust, cooked to perfection-but I think it's their sauce that really makes the pie. I stopped on the way home from work & it really hit the spot!

I used to go to Carini's 20 or so years ago, and always thought the food was decent, but never great. I started visiting again recently, and have yet to have a good experience. The first time, it literally took a half hour to get my glass of wine that I ordered. The food was good, though. The second time,... More

We were in the area recently and decided to stop in for dinner. We have been here before and always had a good meal, until recently. My chicken dish was tough and the salad that comes with the meal is very, very small. I wouldn’t consider it a salad, just a few pieces of lettuce and tomato. My boyfriend said... More

We have been here before. It is a good Italian restaurant; it is easy to get to, with plenty of parking. The food was very good and our waitress was attentive, as always. All the food was basically delicious, with plenty of variety.

Saturday afternoon, and my wife and I wanted a pizza. Of course, to really enjoy pizza, one should eat it at the restaurant; it loses its flavor being transported home in a box. We decided to try Carini’s on the east side of Wallingford. Now, one must realize that Carini’s is not in an upscale or standalone location; it is... More

I hadn't been to Carini's in several years. The last few times I went way back I was disappointed. They has a living social special and I decided to go back and give it a try. The food and service were great. All the various sauces tasted great. I had eggplant parm which was actually baked and not fried. It... More

They have a great thin crust pie and we just love their spinach white pizza for take out. Good variety for eating in.
