Still searching for a really good Italian restaurant since moving to Milwaukee and this is NOT it. Got the veal spiedini on the recommendation of the waitress - had only had it once before and found it tough. It wasn't tough but there was barely any veal, mostly something ground up, and it was very dry and overcooked. And not... More

We were a group of 6 who brought a lot of laughter with us and we fit right in with the atmosphere! The owner and chef came out to greet us during dinner and shared limoncello with our table, we felt right at home. Now the food...it was traditional in all the best ways. We had the calamari, arancini and... More

I went here for dinner recently with my wife and two other couples before going to the theatre. We had reservations to make sure we could get in and out on time. The service was good, and we had some classic dishes: chicken marsala and veal Siciliano. I had some Sicilian wine to keep the style going. There are a... More

The decor and atmosphere are a pleasure. The food and drinks were memorable! The bartender fixed a perfect Lemoncello Lemon Drop Martini. Our appetizers included scrumptious arancini and and a savory antipasti. Entrees were marinated rack of lamb, (the guys loved that) and a shrimp and pasta dish which was lightly sauced with olive oil and garlic. We were delighted... More

I loved the pizza I ordered at Carini's. I ordered the prosciutto with arugula, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan-reggiano cheese with just the right amount of evoo. The crust was also very tasty. In fact, I liked it so much I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next day... A first for me. Carini's is my kind of restaurant: a neighborhood... More

My third time and tonight the service was great the place was empty and I was not so thrilled with what they called Sicilian stick it seemed like it tasted like liver not tenderloin.... We also had thinly sliced eggplant Parmesan which was delicious & their homemade sauce is fabulous and the tiramisu was out of this world!

I had not been here in a quite a while. Glad I went back. Service is spot on. Food is prepared very well, good choices without an overly extensive menu. Good for business lunch or dinner. Small to medium groups. Very friendly staff.

We went here for a birthday celebration and some of us got pasta dishes and pizzas for dinner and we all were very happy with our meals. I had pizza and it was very good with red wine. Food was great but the service was just amazing, the waitress Dana was very accommodating, friendly and awesome. I could even say... More

The atmosphere is authentic, the service is friendly, and the food is good. I have only been here once, so maybe I haven't hit on their best stuff. But the word I would use to describe the pizza and the tiramisu: Bland. The pizza crust was excellent, but the sauce was bland. Nice variety of pizza options, so maybe I... More

Hi! Wondering if you've been back and tried any if the other pizzas on the menu? Also, what pizza did you have that prompted this review? I'm happy that you enjoyed other items we offer and tell you that I am offering a unique pizza in our authentic wood-fired pizza oven from Naples, Italy. If and when you decide to... More
