Carmine's Restaurant is a small, cozy, Italian restaurant that has that Italian "family" feel. Carmine greeted us warmly and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our visit to his restaurant. The meal started with warm bread and olive oil with balsamic vinegar. It was promptly followed by a large salad with dressing. But the real star of he show was... More

Great experience, good music, great customer service, the salads and dinners are tremendous! Feels like we're in the big city having dinner with a glass of wine. We love it.

The food was great (we had the spaghetti meal with salad and bread @ approx. $20pp. The ingredients were all very fresh; the meatballs and the sausage in red sauce... More

If you're looking for a quaint location to take your significant other, this is the place. Free from the chain restaurant feel, the food has that home-cooked feel. If you haven't been here yet, give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

Everything was great! We enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere! Just as good as Sunday dinner at our Italian friends house. I really enjoyed the background music!
