We went here when it first opened and were disappointed. This time we had a very good meal, excellent service and it was a cozy setting to entertain some out of town guests.

Great Sicilian food, bartender
Great Sicilian food, bartender knows her stuff and makes a great drink. Chef even comes out every now and then when it's later in the night and offers up some homemade drink.

One of my favorites
I have been to this place numerous times, and plan to go tonight. The atmosphere is very nice, the food is wonderful, and I've always had great service here. And the owner normally comes out to see how thing are, which is always a nice thing. They normally have discount vouchers on Restaurant.com, which makes it a great buy for a great restaurant.

First time at this restaurant,
First time at this restaurant, will be back soon. Food was prepared very well and was a bit distinctive... not a copy of every Italian restuarnat. Had Spedini and it was tender, flavorfull and not overdone. My wife had Cabonara and it was creamy and rich. Eggplant appitizer was crisp, light without a hint of grease. Nice view of the neighborhoon. Things flowed at a nice pace, not rushed but no long waits either. I wish I lived within walking distance but I bet my cardiologist wouldn't be happy :)

This restaurant has delicious food, and good service. Out server seemed a little out of sorts, or like she had too many tables to keep things straight, no major mishaps though. Only thing I didn't love was the soup, it was a chicken soup with pasta and potatoes and carrots and celery. It just didn't taste great to me, my bf liked it and finished my bowl. I had the chicken Alfredo, it was great! As were the bread with dipping oil, and the lasagna. I will definitely return.

Great food, great service.....was able to accomodate a large group and even had the chef owner come out and check on us. We had two brithdays at our table, and he treated us with free dessert:)

My husband and I were blown away by the food! We haven't had Sicilian cuisine this fabulous since his little Sicilian grandma had to hang up her apron. Also what a fantastic family-owned and friendly atmosphere! With a visit to our table from the chef himself and great attention to making sure that every dish was exactly perfect ~ this was the best "date night" we've had in years.
Though Carini's is a bit of a drive for us ~ we will definitely dine there again as we rate Carini's as in our top 5 restaurants in greater Milwaukee/Waukesha.

Neighborhood hidden Gem
Food, service, ambience are outstanding. We often try the nightly specials, they are not to be missed.
Don't forget the main menu either
Glad they are in our neighborhood

Great Italian Food
3 of us ate different pastas and all were very good. Everything is made fresh so you may add or remove ingredients. I had a primavera loaded with vegetables, added grilled chicken in a light marinara sauce. The bolognese looked great, but there was an abundance of sauce left after the pasta was finished. Nothing some fresh bread couldn't sop up!

Best Italian in Milwaukee
Great menu with a variety of traditional Italian dishes. Best Italian restaurant in the greater
Milwaukee area for value, service and quality. A family run restaurant with
Chef Peter always available to answer questions.

Carini'sConca D'oro as good as ever
We had not been to Carini's for a couple years but it was as good as we had remembered.
The owners are super friendly and welcoming, and the food is always delicious.
The cassata is especially yummy!

I got their stuffed Salmon
I got their stuffed Salmon Special and it was absolutely delicious. I definitely would like to return to try more things on the menu. The restaurant has a "italian family" feel which I enjoyed. My friend ordered the vodka sauce pasta but I thought the vodka sauce was a little to sweet and not enough "vodka-y"

We sat outside and enjoyed a delightful dinner. Our friendly waitress was attentive without being intrusive, perfect. The entrees were delicious. I've been dining at Carinis for years and I've never been disappointed.

I dined on a Sunday night with my family, a party of 6. Our food was very good. Steaks were tender, pastas dishes were tasty, and the stuffed salmon special was delicious. We were even more impressed with the service with than the food. Our waitress was attentive, but what was even more impressive was the chef. He stepped into the dining room right after our food was served. My dad was just about to start cutting my mom's filet, as he always does, since her hands are week. The chef picked up on this and offered to take the plate back and cut it for her. He brought it back a minute later beautifully cut and ready to eat. We were impressed with his thoughtfulness and the warm, welcoming atmosphere of this restaurant.
