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.

    We had a wonderful dinner. The food was very slow to be delivered. You must be prepared to wait once you order. I believe we waited over 30 mins for pizza and salad. Which is unusual for a 90 second cook for the pizza.

    The owner, Peter stopped by and introduced himself and was very personable. You could tell that almost all the customers that came in were already friends. We came in for their woodfired pizza. The pizza was delicious. The atmosphere was wonderful. We will definitely be back.

    We felt the space was a little chilly, but the rest of the experience more than made up for it. All 4 of us polished off our food; even the oft-times picky teen who bravely tried a new dish. We were pleasantly surprised with a 1/2 priced bottle of wine special. Hearty portions! Waiter was accomodating and warm. An older man made the rounds as well, asking us if we were enjoying things. I think, maybe the owner? I've already advised friends to try them out next time they're down around UWM.

    Although EVERYTHING on the menu looked delicious, my companion and I both settled on the Conca d'Oro. It was Excellent!!! So much seafood and the sauce was awesome. We also had an appetizer of Arancini .............there were 4!!! The bread was served with a delicious olive oil mixture and all and I , I thought I was back in Sicily! I will definitely go back and maybe this time I'll bring the whole family and tell them they each have to order something different so I can try everything!

    Drinks at the bar were excellent. We were able to be seated whenever we wanted, no pressure. We had a small group of guys out for a quarterly dinner, they put us in one of two small rooms up front which was greatly appreciated. Appetizers were full of flavor and disappeared quick. Dinner came out in a reasonable time, food was outstanding, and service was second to none. Overall, another outstanding evening!!

    Always a treat, from the decor to the dishes, Carini's is delicious. Over the years and many visits, we have never had a disappointing experience. Carini's is a family-run and family-friendly Sicilian restaurant with creative pasta dishes, outstanding rack-of-lamb, an authentic Italian pizza oven, and much more. Much, much more. And a distinctive full-service bar. We always come home with a Tiramisu for later and left-overs. The Carini's are always cooking, greeting at the door, and circulating among their guests to make sure everything is just right and catching you up on their family and visits back home to Sicily.

    Enjoyed dinner very much. First time visit, though we have lived in the North Shore for decades. Didn't realize it was there. The food was very flavorful. Service was excellent. Meals were a little more pricey but everything was just made and fresh. Offering a small salad or cup of soup with dinner might be a nice added touch even if it added a few $$ to the total cost. The fresh bread and garlic oil was wonderful. We will be back.

    Great staff, great cocktails, very mediocre food. $25 pizza that sounded delicious and could have been had it had more mushrooms, less and more evenly spread cheese, cooked proscuitto and probably a white base vs red. $32 carbonara was heavily creamy, not authentic Italian - def Americanized.

    A first visit but it won’t be the last. Our party of four each had a different entree and everyone loved what they had. Appetizers and salads AND drinks were wonderful. Our waitress was the best we’ve had in ages. We weren’t rushed and our food wasn’t either. Really a perfect evening. Thank you!
