  Carini's Restaurant
by b1bob

The only bad thing to be said about Carini's is its location in a rather dodgy neighbourhood in the East End of Richmond. Having said that, it is a great restaurant in terms of food, service, and atmosphere. Locating itself in a less-than-distinguished neighbourhood probably enables them to keep prices reasonable due to lower overhead. My friend Lee and I took supper here one night in December. Our waitress named Penny was more than attentive and the food came lickety split. The restaurant's interior was done up like an Italian villa with some of the booths under a facade which resembled a porch on a villa with that type of architecture. Lee thinks so highly of this restaurant he brought along his girlfriend Jessi.

Favorite Dish: Lee and I both shared a pizza (his half had only pepperoni and cheese, mine had onions, tomatoes, and peppers) and we each had a plate of spaghetti and meatballs (the size of boulders). All meals come with homemade bread and butter. When David Karnubawax visited, Lee and I both brought him here on his last night. David had the chicken piccata and Lee and I both had the spaghetti and meatballs.
