My first time in any Italian restaurant I always try the lasagne. Lasagne in an Italian restaurant, to me, is like a barometer. If the place is authentic, the lasagne will show it. Here, I would put the lasagne at about an 8 on a 10-point scale. I've only had a "10" once in my life, so that should tell... More

I have enjoyed many meals at this restaurant in the past. They offer several things that that I especially enjoy... one is their house salad dressing - a creamy parmesan garlic - and the other is their house olive butter that is served with the bread. It is so fabulous! Their brick oven pizzas are good too! The restaurant is... More

I was staying at a hotel up the street and we decided to walk to the closest restaurant, Carmine's would not have been my first choice, but they did accommodate our group on short notice. Our server was very good and quite knowledgeable with regards to both the menu and the wine list. I ordered the frutti di mare, at... More

Very friendly and her service was on time without interfering with our conversation. Prices are reasonable and the Fruitti del Mare was full of seafood. You can order the sauce mild medium... More

We stopped here with a groupon coupon. My wife had penne Palermo and I had chicken parmigiana. Each dish was only $14.99. Food was good, I would not say great. A draft beer was only $4.

We went to carmines, with my family, for the first time this Friday because we heard it was an excellent Italian restaurant. We were not disappointed. My wife ordered the chicken piccata. My son in law ordered the penne with greens and sausage. My daughter ordered the stuffed shells. My grandchildren ordered the pasta al-fredo and a pizza. I ordered... More

I have had dinner here many times. The inside isn't that great, however the food has always been good. The prices are good for what you get.
