Stopped here this summer and Carmine himself greeted us. Food and ambiance was fantastic. We loved the lasagna and ravioli. My husband couldn't stop eating the bread. We're from the east coast originally and live in Montana so we don't get a lot of authentic Italian food like we grew up with, that is until we went to Carmine's. Next... More

Service at Carmine's was really great, but was disappointed with only a few choices on the menu. Although you get good sized portions of food, it really is only average in taste. The atmosphere is okay-feels like you are at your grandma's house.

This was like coming home. The warth, the charm and the food, but mostly meeting Carmine was the best of all. Real people, real food..

We had dinner at Carmine's in Kennewick tonight. They are open Thursday - Sunday for dinner. Each night there are 2 entrees to choose from. Tonight (Thursday) it was cheese ravioli with a meat plate or fettuccine alfredo. We had the ravioli and it was delicious. This is a casual place but be sure to call ahead for a reservation... More

From the darling exterior to the warmly appointed interior to the attentive service of our waiter to the genuine ambiance of Carmine himself, you can't go wrong! Carmine's makes you feel like you were "just in the neighborhood" and have been invited to eat the family meal. We went in smiling, and left smiling - just a lovely evening overall.

I had my first experience at Carmine's and I only wish that I had discovered it earlier. The food was top-notch and there was plenty of it. I particularly like the salad. I dined on Spaghetti night and it was delicious. I was impressed that they easily accommodated vegetarians. And, the vegetable penne was fantastic. The food is obviously made... More

A great Italian place to go for a light date or with a family/large group. It's in an old house and the tables are close. The menu is limited by the nights's special that rolls through a set schedule weekly, but the food it excellent and served family style. The restaurant is ran by a family with one or more... More

Based on the reviews, we planned to go here for dinner, and drove for 20 minutes to get there. We arrived at 8:20 on a Saturday evening, only to find it closed! This is one of my biggest pet peeves with a restaurant- unreliable hours. If you say you're open until 9, be open until 9.

Saturday night, Sept. 27 early closure. I apologize to the people who came and found us closed at 8:20. I agree with you. We should always keep our hours as advertised. Unfortunately we had a pipe break in our kitchen and forced us to close. I did put a message on the phone, but it was just after the incident... More

It was really good! Food was delicious and authentic italian. The inside of the restaurant is filled with interesting pictures, posters, and art from the owner's life. The owner himself is very nice and makes sure that everything is perfect for you. We'll definitely be returning here again.

I would not have believed it if I had not experienced it myself. I took an out of town guest in for dinner Thursday evening. As we walked in we were greeted by Carmine. He recognized me! I returned a book he had loaned me when I visited last and he pointed to the wall where the picture of the... More
