You Feel Like You're in Your Family's Dining Room

A home that's been remodeled to accommodate diners, it's a very nice place with interesting things of the restaurant's family's history to view while waiting for the homemade meal. The menu isn't huge but everything we've had is great and would recommend.

My family and I have been to this friendly, family-run restaurant on several occasions. The service is good but quality of the food is not top not another reviewer stated that she could make a similar meal using standard market ingredients. I have to agree with her assessment. The one unique aspect of this restaurant is that one main dish... More

Kids loved the meatballs, adults loved everything about Carmine's! Family photos cover the walls, food is delicious, and Carmine himself is a gracious host. We'll be back!

A small intimate family restaurant. The owner always comes and talk to us. It's family style so only the one choice per night but all the options are delicious. My favorite is the cheese ravoli. They always give you a meat platter that is to die for. I would highly recommend.

This place is pretty tiny. I've been here twice with groups and we cannot even sit together because there is not a good place for groups. It's home cooked food served family style but I just wasn't that full. Maybe they didn't make enough food for our large group.

Carmine's is a delightful restaurant. Went on a Thursday evening, we had reservations for our group. Carmine's usually serves 2 or 3 main courses. They were serving Ravioli, which included meatballs and sausages in marinara sauce. Carmine's was also serving chicken fettuccine. Both dishes were superb! The meal included home bread and salad. Carmine and his wife stop by to... More

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
