Carinis la conca d'oro Ratings and Reviews
I went here for an early Valentine's day dinner hoping to try their wood-fired pizza which won 1st place in the "Best of Milwaukee" 2017. Overall the food tasted fresh and not pre-made or like it was previously frozen. Except the pizza was just bland. I was not impressed. I usually don't judge a restaurant by its decor or ambiance but this place should invest a little money in their interior design, its just tacky in my opinion.
Delightful & scrumptious! Serenity met our every need, was prompt, courteous, and welcoming. Met the owner as well. The veal marsala was extraordinary! Great wine list, too. We were treated to tiramisu since it was a B'Day celebration. That was unexpected and very kind.
Only downside is finding parking in the middle of winter on the east side. Oh well :))
After reading several reviews of this restaurant, I had high expectations and was eager to try it. The place was homey, and obviously a gathering place for locals. The highlight of the evening was the service which was excellent. The food, however, was a disappointment. Everything was too garlicky, even dishes that were not advertised to be so. I ordered the scampano. The pasta was dry and without oil, butter or sauce, and the 2 shrimp were over-cooked and very tough.
Originally from Chicago, where there is a large Italian presence, we are used to great and authentic Italian food. This experience was less than optimal.
very busy on a Saturday night but Open Table got us a reservation and we were seated within 5 minutes of expected. had pizza for first time and crust was perfect (chewy without being undercooked and sauce and toppings great. I like a little more sauce out to the edges but my 2 companions loved it as is. server was polite though rushed and took time to joke and greet with us. another great experience!
Our Saturday night dinner with friends (another couple) was enjoyable. The 5:30 atmosphere was cozy but not crowded as the restaurant filled quickly. (There was one party of 16, so this may not have been a typical weekend night. I was able to request that my olive oil and garlic sauce be prepared 'easy on the salt', recommended by my doctor since I am recovering from a minor heart attack -since most marinara and alfredo sauces are prepared in advance. Our young waitress was very pleasant and accommodating . Portions were large enough for three of us to take half our entrees home. Prices were moderately high, but the food was high quality and service excellent.
I was recommended to try this restaurant from an Italian coworker. The olive oil with the bread and the salad to start were great, but we were a little disappointed with our entrees. I was served veal, which I did not order, but the server insisted it was correct. I barely ate any of my entree. My boyfriend enjoyed his dish, but it was a little expensive for how much food you got. We will give it another try and maybe stick with a basic pasta dish and some pizza.
I usually love this restaurant, but was very disappointed with my order tonight. A dish that I have ordered often, in many other places, was spicy and there was no indication on the menu that it would be. Pomodora (judging by its ingredients) is not spicy. If you are going to make it spicy, warn the customer. I realize there is a trend today to throw spice on everything, but some people can't eat it. After one bite, I didn't taste anything. I just had a mouth that hurt.
Very much closed quarters and difficult to move around in the back room. A large party helped to raise the noise level, making it difficult to hear. Our waitress was present, albeit too much, and interrupted our conversation on many occasions. She also had a habit of saying "my dear" to each one of us, which was not appreciated. The food was good; our group had a pizza, lamb, salmon and chicken. But due to service issues, would not make another visit.
While we were seated promptly, our table was near the door. I asked for a different table and was denied. We were a party of two, seated at a table for 3, and were told that the had too many reservations for 4. So we seated, and every time the door opened we were blasted by cold air, and it is not even that cold out yet. But the real problem was that we had no further contact from the staff after being seated. After 15 minutes, I told my wife to get her coat we are leaving, and we left. I will never go there again. Absolutely terrible service. People who were seated near us, after we were seated, had service, but not us. This was to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had invited another couple to join us but fortunately they were unable to. Too bad because have eaten there several times before and the food is good. This service snafu is unforgivable, there are plenty of other great Italian restaurants in Milwaukee that provides great service.
My husband and I had dinner with friends last Friday. The food was excellent and the service was superb! Brennan was our waiter, and he was outstanding. One of our friends is gluten-free, and was delighted that there were good options on the menu. We’ll definitely be back!
We hadn't been to this restaurant in years and couldn't remember if we even liked it the first time we went. Well, I'm glad we went back. The food was terrific and the wait staff was very friendly. The only complaint I would have is the Hostess was not very friendly. As a matter of fact, I didn't think she was nice at all! Glad the rest of the evening got better. We will definitely be back.
