About this Business
From Our Editors
You know you're on to something when your community votes to put you at the top. In Mineola Patch's 2012 Reader's Choice contest, fans selected Carlino's Restaurant as the best place to get Italian food in the area. As if that wasn't enough of an honor, the restaurant also won for Best Pizza. Hailing from a small town outside of Naples, Italy, the owner transported his native country's hospitality and love of food to New York City. Diners are treated like family as they indulge in authentic southern-Italian meals such as the spaghetti puttanesca with sautéed plum tomatoes, gaeta olives, garlic, anchovies, and capers, or the Sicilian Special pizza with sausage, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and pepperoni.
