Our group of five went on Thursday when Carmine's were serving ravioli and fettuccine, also came with meatballs and sausages in marinara sauce. This is all served family style to pass around. Our meal included rolls and salad. We brought our own bottle of wine, which they uncorked. The food was delicious, some of the best Italian I've ever had.... More

Many thanks to previous Trip Advisers who led us to Carmine's. There is nothing about this restaurant that my family and I didn't love. From the welcome we received upon entering, to the homey atmosphere, to the great service, and a visit to our table from Carmine- we loved it. (I will get to the food- which is off the... More

Don't miss it! First homemade bread with really good olive oil and basalmic vinegar dip, then salad, both all you can eat. But don't fill up. The lasagna for 2 was way more than we could eat, freshly baked in its pan. Also a meat platter of meatballs and sausage with sauce. Yum yum. Carmine was so hospitable and friendly.... More

I went to Italy in March and the food at Carmine's was equally as good. We had the cheese ravioli, meatballs, sausage, salad and warm bread. My friend also ordered the strawberry Italian soda which she raved about. Everything was outstanding!

This is a restaurant in an old house near downtown Kennewick. The food is great and served family style. You eat whatever the cook is cooking that night and it is all good. The owner comes to your table to chat with you and make sure everything is good. Very Italian, just like in Italy.
