Best Market/Catering Company on the Main Line – Carlino's Market is by far the best Gourmet Food Market on the Main Line. They have everything you could possibly imagine, from fresh pasta to fresh breads to prepared meals to awesome desserts. The best part is, they have a in-house Catering Service that is top-notch. I use Carlino's Catering for all my party needs and they never disappoint. They recently catered my wedding anniversary and it was spectacular. I didn't have to worry about a thing; they are so professional and they food is sooo scrumptious! I have been a loyal patron of Carlino's and will be forever and ever!! West Chester location is beautiful and a landmark in West Chester......Prices are very fair, so whomever says they are expensive, should shop around local markets and see that Carlino's is very fair for the quality and selection received!
Best Gourmet Market and Catering Company on the Main Line!! – Carlino's Market is by far the best Gourmet Food Market on the Main Line. They have everything you could possibly imagine, from fresh pasta to fresh breads to prepared meals to awesome desserts. The best part is, it is a family-owned and operated business, and the staff is so helpful, and it is a true delight to enter this store. I have traveled the world, and I can say there is not one bad thing in this store, everything is amazing! Recently, I had a 50th Anniversary party for my parents, and Carlino's Catering catered the event at my parent's home in Chester County, PA. The food was outstanding, of course, and the service was top-notch. I don't understand how anyone can write a bad review about this Gourmet Market because it truly is oustanding, and they deserve to be named Best of Philly and Best of the Main Line because they are the BEST!!!
PS-- Carlino's new location in West Chester, PA is amazing; it is double the size of the Ardmore store, and the look of the place is breath-taking; it is definetly worth the experience!!!
Company Event Planners Beware! – When I hired Carlino?s Catering Service this December(2008)for my Companies Holiday Party, I was confident I would be receiving top-notch quality food and service. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed on both accounts and terribly embarrassed in front of my boss and co-workers. I realize that every event is bound to have certain mishaps, but this event was a disaster. The cuts of meat were comparable to the size of a Denny?s Special and every plate was served cold. However, the most disheartening part of the entire experience was Carlino?s complete lack of interest in hearing my grievances after the event. Company Event Planners Beware: Save your Company?s hard-earned money and save your self a lot of humiliation? Hire another Caterer!
Always was a great place....Added the Bressi Line of Meats---is AWESOME now! Wow.... – I have been going to Carlinos for a decade--and I always thought they were relatively good. However--I just noticed that they added the Bressi Meat Market line of meats---now---they are AWESOME. The Bressi meats, paired with their oils and cheese makes Carlinos the best of the main line by far. Google Carlinos or Bressi meats for more information...check them out!!!
Our favorite place in the area – We have lived in suburban Philly for about 4 years now, and Carlino's is our favorite find in the area. It's great to have in the neighborhood to pick up essentials on the fly, but we never make it out of there with just a container of milk. We could happily spend an afternoon eyeing all (and sampling many) of the tasty meats, cheeses, breads, dips... I have to drag my husband out of the place... it's irresistible. Some of their stuff can be expensive, but much is pretty fair. We also like trying to support a local business, even if it's a little more expensive, and feel like they are the real deal when it comes to Italian. We haven't ever used the catering service, but have always found the food we purchased in-store to be excellent. It's a one-stop if you're having people over. It was obvious to us from our first visit that they are passionate about their food and their shop. It's just fun to go there!
POOR service... HIGH cost ..NOT GOOD! – Our company uses catering services every day? We tried Carlino?s for a lunch for 20 people, ? And boy were we let down! Did not send all the food-They forgot the salad and dressing, so we called back! They argued with us and said we should have enough! Then they said they would send the salad to us. They gave us 14 can sodas and changed us $40 dollars for them.. Over all we were charged over $15 dollars per person for 5 tuna (small) sandwiches and 5 vegetables sandwiches and other cold sandwiches (LENT) small pasta salad, a mixed green salad and cookies. When I call and was concerned I was told other companies don?t have a problem with what they charge? I know it will be the last time we use them EVER!!!!!
everything there is the best, find out about real food – Carlino's is Italy on the Main Line. There is no place that can offer you such a fine array and such quality. Start with their produce. Clean and fresh and sometimes lower priced than the grocery store. Move to prepared fresh/frozen pastas (try the pumpkin ravioli), excellent cheeses ( Only Di Bruno's offers you more in cheese) and authentic Italian meats.
Try their pizzas - the real thing: from the purest simple tomato to quattro stagioni.
Prepared dinners! Better than any restaurant.
And bread - several types, all fresh made, all the highest quality.
If you have a question about food, talk to Mamma Carlino or email her. She's a real person and can offer invaluable information.
If you go on a Holiday - be prepared. The traffic in is so heavy, they have their own policeman.
This is truly one of the essentials for anyone who knows anything about real food.
