Visit Carini's La Conca d'Oro at its convenient east side location and you'll enjoy Sicilian delicacies prepared by a master and served in a gracious, friendly atmosphere. Authentic Italian music playing on the sound system and the seascape paintings adorning the walls are clues to the specialty here. Chef owner Peter Carini came to the U.S. in 1966 from Porticello, a small fishing village near Palermo, where he learned from his mother that good Italian food is prepared by taste, touch and instinct. Peter also brought to America a great knowledge of seafood. Dishes are individually prepared in a simple manner using the freshest foods and the finest ingredients. The chef insists on a scratch kitchen, with no commercially made mixes or shortcuts. The restaurant's name means Shell of Gold Seafood specialties include dishes featuring squid, clams, shrimp, scallops, mussels, swordfish, cod, tuna and salmon. Carini's caters to beef lovers and vegetarians as well, and those who have a taste for chicken or veal. You can take a little bit of Carini's home with you, as we sell our marinara sauce, spaghetti sauce and garlic olive oil and seasoning salt at the restaurant. Gift boxes and baskets are also available all year. Carini's offers an extensive selection of authentic Sicilian entrees, sure to tantalize anyone's taste buds. Besides the Chef's spectacular spiedini, we offer the finest steaks and freshest seafood, as well as daily specials prepared to perfection by Chef Peter. We offer a large selection of fine Italian and Sicilian wines. On Sunday, purchase 2 dinners and get off any bottle of wine. Order one of our house desserts regular or mini cannoli, tiramisu or our cassata, a rum infused yellow cake with our cannoli filling, lightly glazed and chocolate syrup over the top. We also have a large menu imported desserts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by We were late for our reservations but they sat us immediately without making us feel horrible about running late. Sat in the front sun room, warm and qaint. The waitress was wonderful, very knowledgeable and attentive. Food was fresh and full of flavor. Best Italian cuisine I've had in years.
