1st thing when I entered, the obvious, a simple greeting... and where we wanted to sit, a "broom" reclining against the table... the very 1st one! Hello, that's the only entrance since they locked the other door, clients can trip!! No BRUSCHETTA?One of, if not the only best appetizer in the menu!! Idk why they took it off. I had gone about a 1 1/2 yrs ago with my hubby, he did not like it the 1st time, but I was craving this appetizer, so he delighted me with taking me, mind you I'm from the Boca area.
The server was nice, but not so knowledgable with the menu and was not writing down our order and cam a few times to re-ask what we ordered...
My hubby's caesar salad was soggy and room temp. and had a shade of dark green.., like as in getting "old green". Pd. $14. for Mussel fra diavolo w/penne. It had a good portion of pasta and the sauce was great tasting but was oozing with to much oil..., 5 mussels was all that the dish had and "A LOT" a garlic!Too much that this would repel team Edward for wks!It should of been called Garlic fra Diavolo with pasta and a hint of mussel.The manager was like that's how we've been doing it for 8yrs since we opened. Well, if u r a chef or cook, u know better that a steamed mussel should come out "open" and the meaty part "split" to show how fresh this mollusk is. 3 of mine were bad... 1 was completely shut, which I returned, another was like "old" it was tore up per say, like when a paper has been too long in the water, like that.., the server brought me the other mussel for the 1 I returned and it was just steamed w/o flavor of the fra diovlo! Ugh, don't u know it's gonna taste like sand and mollusk poop? I made mention to her about that, but I still kept it and covered it the oily sauce to marinate while Ate the rest of my pasta. At that point I was eating the rest of the mussels, the paper one.., which btw, was already detached from the shell, which is a BIG NO,NO, SIGN!! UGH!! That was gross!! Tasted like old mussel that was sitting in their water container for wks!! Spit that in my napkin.. then after about 15min I tried the plain one I had saut..., ever grosser, I even gagged on this one, and I know one of the employers saw me, I tried to chug it with a gulp of beer and it was unbearable.., I had to place it in another napkin. GROSS, like disgusting flavor!! I told the server and all she said was sorry, no like, "let me get the manager for you, please". The blonde cashier just kept messing with the male employees since we arrived! One in particular, a latin, he didn't pay too much mind, his voice tone was normal, she was loud, as if she wanted for the clients to notice her. On top of he unprofessionalism of siting across our table texting away sitting improperly. She was also on a couple of personal calls by the register, wouldn't care or notice, but again, she was loud, not cursing, but using not so lady like language?. She also sat to eat at that same table where she was texting?, ah, I don't want to be sting around employees of the same establishment I am dining in while they are on the clock and my order is thing a while and is not the greatest!!!
High recommendation my foot!! For the exception of their pizza specialty, they should really not attempt to play chef... Got sick, barely made it to throw up in my bathroom at home, and I'm glad that was the end of it, or they'd be seeing my bill...

Had a great dinner last night with family. Excellent atmosphere, excellent food, and outstanding service. We ate 'family style', which I highly recommend. We asked for a large pizza and two types of pasta. They brought out delicious pastas

The place is located just on Federal Highway, really convenient for those

Their Dishes are so creative! My mom loves the Philly Cheesesteak pizza loaded with gooey cheese, steak, peppers and onions I like the mashed potato pizza because it also is loaded with cheese and bacon. Their calzones are are delicious, and the little appetizers like peperoni bread, rice ball, spinach knots are great starters! They also have pastas and other great entrees. My service is always prompt and plesant. I highly recommend this restaurant!

The pizza is straight from New York! Authentic and plentiful with great prices and a wide variety from choices in creative dishes and out of the ordinary pies! The service always wears a smile and the chef's are prompt and polite! I always reccommend this place to everyone and they are always so pleased with me for doing so!

pizza slices are getting smaller and smaller. I asked for onions on my pizza and what I got was the very outer layer, dry and old. My husband ordered chicken parmegian: tough, tasteless; the tomato sauce was runny and sour. We are not going back. Too bad, it was one of our favorites.

WOW what a great Pizza Place. I have lived in the area and finally found a pizza like home. This VERY busy Pizza & Pasta restaurant has the best NEW YORK style thin crust pizza in south Florida. We started with a short wait as there was a line out the door, but they moved us quickly and it wasn't long until we had our Fried Calamari, (The BEST we have ever had) while we waited for our Pizza, the manager recommended the Pomodoro Pizza, Fresh Tomato, Basil and Garlic, and I would have to say that the garlic rolls were addictive. We finished with esspresso and one of the best canoli's we have ever had. The phones were ringing throughout our dinner and employees were hopping. Our server Silvia was a delight, and we can tell the manager was popular as people would shout out across the restaurant to say hi to him, they were very fun, the manager asked of if we wanted to take our server home, one condition we couldn't bring her back, as they stood arms around each other we couldn't help but laugh. We could tell that this is a place that likes people, likes each other and have a great time making us happy. If you want a GREAT meal and an enjoyable time Carini's is a must stop in restaurant.

I have had delivery and take out at this restaurant and got unsatisfactory food either burnt or undercooked, second of all the service is disgusting I have actually called and been hung up on by the owner non the less how do you own a restaurant and hang up on a customer, and finally the last straw was that i bought the greek salad and became extremly ill on it and the response they gave me was that it wasnt there salad it must of been something else! I have worked in restaurant business before and i know that customers are not suppose to be treated like this

PROS:
CONS: disgusting service, unclean surfaces and unsanitary area

After driving past this place many times we decided to go in and give it a try. I'm glad we did. The place is very kid friendly and close to everything. The food was good.
We order pizza and rolls and they were done fresh.
They have lots of different gourmet style and special pizzas. Even New York style. They offer italian dishes as well.
