This restaurant and family are priceless. Everyone was so friendly and the food was good too! We are new to the area and have been so disappointed with the limited dining selection. Carmine's was an amazing surprise. We will be back again for sure!

I had the best time at Carmine's with my parents and my niece. I felt as if I was in old New York back in the 40's. Carmine met with us and showed us his vast collection of family photos displayed throughout the entire restaurant - it was so nice to see the history behind the man! I love that... More

We love eating at Carmine's. We have been there as a group, on a date and as a family of 4 and the service is always wonderful. From the minute you walk in, you are family! The food is extremely authentic (I grew up with Sicilian Grandma, so I know) and the ambiance is inviting and a walk through time.... More

We have a tradition of having Italian food on my birthday. Carmine's was recommended for my birthday dinner. This was such a pleasant and satisfying dining experience. Carmine came out and talked with us as our order was being prepared and continued to check on us to make sure we had all we wanted. My wife and I shared the... More

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
