I shop at Carlino's at least once a month, and I'd go more often if my budget allowed! My usual staples are their homemade pasta ($4-$7/lb. depending on the type), freshly baked bread, and freshly prepared convenience dinners like blackened tilapia and mushroom risotto. They have an amazing counoter of already cooked meats, fish, pastas, and sides that you can grab and go home to serve to your family. They also have a deli with Boar's head meats (among other Italian cured meats), a pizza counter, a drool-inducing bakery section, a produce area, a cheese counter, and an olive oil tasting section. You can also grab a cup of coffee and a cup of gelato (last year they had vanilla froyo with a toppings bar too...not sure if the gelato replaced that).
If you're a local, be sure to sign up for the free discount card program. You earn back $15 for every $500 you spend. It's taken me about a year to spend that much, but trust me, it would be easy to do it one afternoon, the food is really that authentic and tasty (and priced accordingly).
Recently, they added a cute area out front with tables and chairs, so for the person who just wants to swing by for a slice or a gelato, you can enjoy it on the patio. The staff is never short of incredibly friendly and accommodating.
