Stopped in for an early Saturday evening dinner. Service was good. They make a great blackberry Sangria. Had the gluten free pasta with marinara sauce, very good. They also have live music on weekends. It gets busy at peak dinner hour on weekends so plan on a wait. Prices are reasonable.

This restaurant with a number of tv's tuned to sporting events--but not a problem as they are not too loud. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 3 children. The adults ordered pasta and everyone was OK with their meal. Two of the kids order pizza and got a relatively small round piece that was really small--not good. The third... More

Poor service and food not very good. Sit at bar and have a few beers but nothing more. At times good music though can get loud.

Monday night is steak night at Carmine's. They have the best steak in the twin cities and it cost only $12.95. You can't go wrong when you select Carmine's as your destination for eating out. The staff is great, the service is great, and patio dining is fantastic!!

After a long weekend of working the Minnesota Irish festival, we were hungry! There were 14 of us ready to eat on a Sunday night at 10pm and our choices were carmines or Applebee's...we chose carmines only to get there and have them tell us the kitchen was closed...we literally cried in the parking lot...our kids were hungry and us...

Started with the appetizers.Chicken wings were meaty with good flavor. The Italian fries were some of the best I have ever had. The entrees were average. Stay away from the lasagna. Meat balls were tasty but the sauce on the rigatoni and spaghetti was kind of bland. Most Italian restaurants serve breads sticks or Italian bread with your meal.

Went with friends on Friday April 22. Ordered a bacon cheeseburger and when my food arrived I realized it also had an egg on it under the cheese and uncooked bacon. The waiter was busy, dropped it off and quickly went about his way. It took some time to wave him down of which he said sorry and again quickly... More

The wine was totally overpriced by triple what you pay in a store. The food was mediocre at best - spaghetti sauce tasted like it was right out of a jar. The fried calamari was more fried peppers than calamari. Very disappointing.

I found the prices to be outrageous, the "scene" to be ok, and the food just ok, really nothing special for the price. I like my sauces for italian food more flavorful and robust but found their entrees to be Blah. I would rather go to Vescio's in Minneapolis and spend 1/2 the money.
