the atmosphere at Carmine's is fantastic

We were intrigued by the fact that they only serve 2 items on their menu. So when you call and make reservations you also place your order. you are guaranteed to have fresh food.

Carmine's is rated the #1 restaurant in Kennewick so we thought we'd try it out on our recent visit to the Tri-Cities. This is a busy place! Reservations are recommended. 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!

Carmine's is more than a wonderful meal - it is an experience. Yes, the menu is limited, but that only guarantees the quality of the food and the family atmosphere. I rarely order spaghetti and meatballs, but this was the best spaghetti and meatballs I have ever had! The bread is to die for, and the salad could be a... More

First time at Carmine's and I have to say, they have the Best Italian food in the Tri Cities. This is a private family owned restaurant business. I had the Eggplant with Meatballs and my husband had the Stuffed Lobster and Shrimp, they were both delicious. I will probably go back on a special occasion

My wife and I went to Carmine's for the first time, and I'm sad we had not yet been, but it most certainly will not be the last. The food is truly authentic, like my grandparents used to make in Chicago. Everything was perfect and the entire experience was amazing. Best restaurant in TC, and anywhere nearby for that matter.

Excellent food and service. I've been eating here for years and it is a go to place for family and friends. I've also reserved the restaurant business luncheons for 20+ people. Most recently we enjoyed a special Valentine's meal. Red rose and all.

This is my second trip back. I benchmark Italian food by one, and only one dish, lasagna. My first trip did not offer that meal, since two entrees are offered daily. I thought that was strange at first, but I quickly discovered why. This restaurant is an experience, not a meal. I have not been to Italy, but I had... More

What a delightful surprise this was for the three of us! We travel to Italy often and found Carmine's an enjoyable taste of Italian food and friendship. Carmine is a delightful gentleman and shared his wedding album with us! The Wednesday night meal was a delicious lasagna served with tasty meat treats. We will certainly go back again! By the...
