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 sautéed…, 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 sever and all she said was sorry, no like, ""let me get the manager for you, please"". The cashier just kept messing with the male employees since we arrived!
So much for the ""high"" recommendation, I got home and made it in time to puke!! :-( Glad it didn't persist or they would be seeing a Dr. 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 a pizza.My favorite pizza is the Caprese, which comes with chesse, tomato and basil. As far as pasta, i recommend, stuffed ravioli. with pink souce. With the pasta you get garlic bread, which I loved! Much, much better than somewhere like olive garden, etc, and the prices are better too.

I always stop by Carinis to get a slice of pizza during my lunch break. The pizza is crispy and delicious. I never have to wait and the employees are very nice.
The place is located just on Federal Highway, really convenient for those who live in Hallandale and who work in the area.

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.
