At Carini's you cannot get any more authentic than being in Sicily. In fact Peter, owner/chef, comes from Sicily and takes pride in all that he prepares. Many of the dishes are prepared the same way his mother cooked them. He uses the freshest ingredients and can customize any dish to your liking. His expanse menu offers 5 kinds of spiedini, seafood, pasta, chicken, veal, vegetarian, appetizers including calamari, octopus salad, antipasto plates and much more. He has many imported desserts plus his homemade tiramisu, cannolis and casatta, a yellow cake infused with rum and filled with cannoli filling and glazed. Peter also sells his spaghetti and marinara sauce, garlic olive oil and seasoned salt from the restaurant as well as gift baskets. All of the products can be shipped anywhere in the US. The restaurant can accomodate parties of any size up to 140 people.

    The pizza and salad we ordered were very good. This is a fine option for wood-fired pizza. The music was appropriate and at a reasonable sound level. This was a big improvement over the loud dance club music playing during out last visit.

    We had a great meal at this restaurant. They had a huge party in back so it took a bit to get our wine but after that it was great. We had wonderful pizza, best octopus salad and good entrees. We had a nice bottle of Toscana. Will definitely go back when we visit Milwaukee again.

    Our overall experience was disappointing. We were seated in an area that had loud dance club music. The waiter did turn it down at our request but why would an "authenic" Italian restaurant play that kind of loud music at dinner time in the first place? We ordered an antipasto plate. There were two of us. The plate had a huge amount of average quality meat and cheese and a few veggies. There was easily enough for six people as a starter. Why not try to fit the serving size to the party size. A much smaller quantity of higher quality items would have been very welcome. When the waiter brought the plate, he did not bring bread. That was surprising. We asked for some and he brought it about 10 minutes later. It was stale and cold. If an Italian restaurant can't get bread right, you have to worry about the rest of the offerings. The two main courses were acceptable, but nothing to brag about. Including two glasses of wine (total) the bill came to just under a hundred dollars. I would normally be happy to pay that much, but not for this experience. Sign of the times I guess.

    Well, I remember Carini's back in the day and it was very clean and it looked beautiful with the white table cloths . Now, the table clothes are gone, are table was not level so it kept moving , and they had us near the entry way . there was a patron in the restaurant that had a dog, and the food came out somewhat luke warm at best . It was not the experience we had before at all. We ordered Lamb and it took forever to come out, and there was no offer to give us an extra drink on the house . I do not see us coming back at all.

    Carinis la conca d'oroResponded on April 26, 2022Was anything said to anyone at the time you were dining? We usually shim the tables as soon as it is seen to be wobbly or are told it is wobbly. Why would a drink have been suffice when something could have been done about the food? And...we allow service dogs. Again, if something was said, it would have been taken care of.

    I love small, family-run Sicilian-Italian restaurants. Whenever I go to Carini's, it feels like visiting a good friend. Chef Peter Carini always finds time to go from table to table to visit with his guests and to make sure everything was perfect. The menu selections are delicious and there are many different selections (plus a pizza oven for younger diners) with creative touches. The atmosphere is as impressive as the food. Dining at Carini's is always a treat and a distinct pleasure.

    The food was terrible. We had 4 different pasta dishes at our table and all were very poor quality. The food was not fresh and tasted like it was cooked then reheated. The sauce on the lasagna tasted like Ragu pasta sauce. Mozzarella sticks did not taste good. A woman brought our appetizers out and served them while talking on her cell phone. We will not go back or recommend.

    The food was good, we loved the pizza and chicken parmesan. We didn’t care much for the limited cocktail list that only included hard seltzer mixers and no beer list. We were also not a fan of the two children who kept running back and forth past our table; it appeared they were children of one of the servers. Our server was nice, but after handing over my card, it took a while to get the card and check back to sign. We may come back for takeout in the future since the food was good, but there was little ambiance for dine-in.

    The only complaint was the table we were sitting at which we have sat at on several occasions which is the corner in the main dining room right next to the outdoor patio area has a definite chill coming in. Every time I have sat there I was chilly and I dress warm so that is not the problem. Other than that the waitress, food, owner and the birthdays desserts were amazing. The casata cake was fabulous.
