I believe Carmine's has the best Italian food, bar none, and we've seen a lot of Italian places in our 65 years, including Italy. The bread came and I commented to my husband that this was the best bread I'd EVER had. Then came the pasta...and it was homemade and delicious! But, the best was the sauce. I could have... More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable time dining here. Between conversations with Carmine and the waitstaff and the food (served homestyle) you feel that you are in an Italian home sharing a great meal with family and friends.

My wife found this place from restaurants.com so we decided to come see. Carmine the owner operator is so nice. The food is great and it's so fun to interact with him in this smaller more intimate place. His whole life story is up on the walls. You will be very glad you came!

Thought we would try something different for dinner and boy am I glad we did. I took my wife and friends to Carmines and we were thrilled with everything. Carmine had us seated and had us ready to go with salad and bread in under 2 minutes. Beverages were served in under 3 minutes and he was telling us great... More

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.
