Cariera's by Castelli
Keep coming back!This restaurant was recommended to my husband and I about 7 years ago and now every time we visit Orlando, Cariera's is a definite stop. We have shared our experience here with many friends and look forward to another return. Our waiter John was superb!!!!!!!!!!Our meals were delicious as always.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLive jazz makes it specialIt had been a long time since I had been to Cariera's. A friend recommended checking out the live jazz group on a Friday night. It looked like the restaurant had been given many nice coats of paint since my last visit - definitely fancier than I remember. Though still very comfortable. Service was excellent. Pizza was fantastic. And the added touch of a live jazz trio made it that much more enjoyable. It was a very rainy night, so it wasn't very busy for a Friday night. I can only imagine with a full restaurant, the buzz is even bigger over the music. Even still, after every number the band got a rousing round of applause. Nothing beats live music and I hope Cariera's keeps offering its patrons the chance to hear it!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian food atExcellent Italian food at a very affordable price!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA real Italian treat.My boyfriend, his parents and I went there for dinner and from top to bottom were very happy with everything. I had the Italian Wedding soup, which was so delicious. My entree was the Four Cheese Tortellini. It was so good I kept eating until I hurt. My boyfriend and his mom had the Veal Francaise, which I also tried. I might get that next time it was so good and tender. His dad had the Veal Marsala. No one was able to try it because he finished it too quickly. We will definitely be back!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot-not a chainGreat find in Orlando. I stumbled upon it three years ago and have visited every trip back to Disney. Highly recommended. Nice wine list as well.2/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGood FoodA really good find. Honestly, based on some of the other reviews posted, we didnt think the food was going to be good, but guess what? Every meal was really good -- chicken parm, fussilli, and penne dishes all hit the spot. Even the coffee was good.
Only complaint is that the bottle of wine we got was a bit pricey -- buy a bit . On the other hand, we were the only ones buying a bottle so maybe the stuff doesn't move and they up the price for storage.
Go for the food, not the bevs.1/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
