We decided to stop at Carini's for some Italian while in Wildwood. We have spent a week each summer in Wildwood for many years, but never stopped here. We won't stop here again. The food, although 'fine', was nothnig more than the standard Pat's Pizzaria or Season's Pizza Menu items. The interior left us totally unimpressed with little wooden chairs... More

Went here for dinner with 6 adults and two children. Everyone here enjoyed their meal. Most of the dishes come with a salad to start which is nice. I had picked cesar dressing and two of the people thought by picking that dressing, they would get a cesar salad. The kids menu had a lot of choices which was nice.... More

We always order take-out from Carini's when we're at Wildwood. I would definitely recommend the hot sandwiches. The meatball and chicken parmesan sandwiches are particularly good, last year we had the cheesesteak, and this year I tried the cheesesteak sub, and they were all excellent. If you have a big order, though, be sure to check the items before you... More

Have been to this place before and had no problems, but this summer (2016) it was awful. We went in and the wait for a table was over 90 minutes because we had a large party. We totally understood and instead ordered the food take out so we could eat it at our condo. They told us it would be... More

This place came highly recommended, but I can't understand why. I ordered fried calamari and a veal parmigiana sandwich. I have never written a bad review for any establishment but I can't let this pass. The calamari was like rubber and that was the best part of the meal! The veal was tough as shoe leather and tasted terrible. I... More

We've been here a few times since it's practically around the corner from our condo. Anything we have ordered has been delicious. Friendly service and plenty of seating.

My wife and our two teenage children were vacationing in Wildwood. We stopped at Carini's and asked how long the wait time was. They said 5 minutes. Then, when they saw I am a wheelchair user, they said to my wife, for a wheelchair it will be 30 minutes. The tables are too close together for a wheelchair to navigate.... More

0n vacation in wildwood crest my daughter wanted pizza for her birthday. The pizza was very good and the prices reasonable. The service wasn't great. We waited quite a while for our bill while the wait staff played on their phones.

My husband, son and I decided to try this place on our first dinner out in Wildwood Crest. We are here for the week, and what an aweful way to start off! While the food was okay, nothing special, the service was terrible. We ordered mussels in white wine sauce as an appetizer, and both my husband and I ordered... More
