Fine Italian Cuisine & Thin-Crust Pizza

Carlton's Italian in Cullman, Alabama, serves a wonderful selection of Italian cuisine. We make our own dough and sauce for hand-rolled thin-crust pizzas. We also serve seafood, such as lobster and shrimp, and purchase fresh produce.

Most Popular Meal–Lasagna with Garlic Bread

We use our own homemade sauce to create tasty lasagna in sizes small, medium, and
extra-large for dine-in or small and extra-large for carryout. The extra-large lasagna
feeds two people and comes with two garlic breads.

Carlton's Sign - Italian Cuisine
