We were spending the night at a friends condo in Orlando and had been to this restaurant in the past. It was easy and convenient to get there and was away from all the tourist bustle at Disney and Universal. The food was good but...More

Not the same restaurant as we all knew if before new management took over. The food and service is below standard for a restaurant that has been a mainstay in this area for years.

Went with friends. We were not greeted at door, waited despite restaurant being mostly empty. Staff unprofessional, inefficient, and didn't know the first thing about Italian food. The bread was stale, food was mediocre. Over abundance of unsavory red sauce, not tasty, over cooked, and...More

Looking for good Italian food, found it! My husband ordered the Lobster Provencal and I ordered the Eggplant Parmegian. Both were freshly cooked and delicios. Reasonable prices for the area.

We have dined here a few times but were pleasantly surprised this visit with the new decor and interior. Food is genuine and well priced. Seems authentic with great staff. My son thought the snapper there was the best he had at any restaurant.

If you're in the mood for a reasonably good Italian meal, value priced, and decent service, Cariera's will fill the bill. Typical Italian dishes, lots of choices, and quite honestly, some of the best pizza anywhere (and I'm not a big pizza person).

A remarkably good surprise. I ended up there with my family by accident, trying to find a last minute place to eat. We had a ribeye, parmigiana and fettuccine alfredo. All very well prepared. $ 70 for three.

Walk into Cariera’s by Castelli and you’ll immediately feel like part of the family. The dinning room creates a quaint, yet comfortable atmosphere for any occasion. If sitting at the bar or in the lounge is more your style, plan on being treated with true Italian hospitality. The full service bar features a variety of specialty liqueurs, ports, cognacs and an extensive wine list. Can’t decide? Have one of our cosmopolitans or a raspberry martini.Once comfortably seated, its your mind that must do the decision making. For starters, Cariera’s menu is loaded with different appetizers to choose from including Asiago Stuffed Shrimp, Fried Calamari, and Mussels Arrabiata. The menu also includes a variety of specialty Entrees such as Grilled Chicken Penne, Ravioli Di Mia Madre, and Chicken Cariera’s. Last but certainly not least, Cariera’s is known for a few delicious handmade desserts including Creme Brulee, Cannolis and Tiramisu. If entertainment is what you’re after, look no further. An eclectic mix of performers come to perform weekly. If you’re feeling like some fresh air, step outside onto the patio. Seating is limited, but the Cariera’s staff will make extra room just for you. And best of all, the patio is covered, so you can still dine outside during one of Central Florida’s famous summer showers. Life gets so hectic sometimes that many of us are unable to dine out, but rest assured, Cariera’s has take-out so that you can bring some of your favorite dishes home. For the past three years, Cariera’s Cucina Italiana has earned the honor of being the number one family restaurant by the Southwest Bulletin.
