Ugh- just left here. Ordered their broccoli chicken with garlic over GF pasta. It was horrible- just bland & watery. They may be garlic shy- i couldn’t eat it. And I’m not sure why there are rave reviews fir the GF pizza- they use that frizen, cracker type shell - which comes in its own aluminum pan with a disposable cutter. When I see these crusts- I run for the door. No gluten reaction though - just a mediocre entree. Even the Parmesan cheese tasted like it came from a green can on Walmart’s shelf. Unimpressed.

We ate at this restaurant with a large group, all of whom enjoyed their meals. While our server said she has celiac, she made a comment about the oven burning off gluten while the pizzas cook (this made us uncomfortable with ordering pizza). So we went for GF ravioli (yummy) and it seemed to be fine; they said they cooked it in a separate pan. However, my mother in law, who reacts more easily to gluten, did get sick after eating what was supposed to be GF spaghetti, olive oil, and broccoli. This was very disappointing. 😔 The kitchen staff may need to freshen up their cross-contamination training to provide more safety to those with celiac.

I went to Carini's with my family. I ordered the gluten free shrimp pasta with garlic and oil. my dad ordered the gluten free stuffed shells. unfortunately, for the rest of my family it took a while for their food to come and the waitress kept saying "somebody else took your pizza". I was half way done with my meal when I found two noodles that looked like they contained gluten. My dad said his shells didn't look or taste gluten free, and he said he felt funny afterward. I'm lucky I found those two noodles because if I ate them I probably would have been sick.

I'm glad other people have had great experiences, but I've been there twice and it was awful. There was one other small table both times and I literally waited 30 minutes for my sprite. My friend asked the waitress about it three times before it came. There wasn't an issue with the machines or anything, but honestly the waitress was lazy and extremely inattentive. Food both times was not very good. I say this having been a waitress years ago. I got pasta first time, pizza the second. I was hoping I got a bad day the first time, but it seems very consistently bad.

First time having gluten free pizza. I was pleasantly surprised. Reminded me of a thin crust pizza. My main complaint was that on gluten free menu it doesn't state the size of the pizza. So I was looking at their main menu and it said that gluten free pizza was 16". I was then told by the waitress that it was a misprint and for $10.95 you get a 12" pizza. Well then you need to make a change on your menu.

I drive 20 miles to eat her gluten free pizza and lasagna. The owner is celiac and an Italian immigrant. The food is good and safe. Super casual
