My wife and I ate at Carmine's last Saturday night. It was literally unforgettable, and not in a good way! I am not one to complain and I totally get the idea that a restaurant doesn't have to have a fancy menu or an amazing...More

We had lunch here last week and the food was as good as ever. The garlic bread is an experience not to be missed and the meal deal at £5.00 for three courses is simply amazing. I recommend this highly.

The food in carmines is superb, freshly made and consistently good. Great service from the friendly staff and Carmine himself. Cosy, homely feel about the place and it is a laid back atmosphere. Highly Reccomended
