“Wow, the only thing better than the food was the service!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

Went to Carmine's because it was close to our hotel and it got a pretty good Tripadvisor review. We walked in and were seated with a smile, was served water immediately and our waiter was there next. The service was fantastic throughout our dinner. I had the Filet Pepperloin which was great and my wife had the filet special which was also outstanding. We sahed a dessert o lemon cake which was very tasty. Highly recommend it!!!!

“Excellent food/service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

We visit Carmine's several times a year when friends from out of state come to visit. The staff always remembers us and treats us very well. The food is great and cooked to our liking. The atmosphere of the restaurant is excellent and makes our visit even more special. Thanks Carmine's for the great service and we can't wait to come back!

“Best Risotto!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Had the filet special, which was tender and cooked perfectly. The risotto was amazingly flavorful! Would highly recommend if you are in downtown St. Louis.

“Mmmmm.....Pepperloin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Okay....I'll admit it up front. I love Carmine's Italian Pepperloin. It's always perfectly cooked and has that cracked pepper coating and that delicious Chiante sauce. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water!

Carmine's is located in the heart of downtown St. Louis, virtually across the street from Busch Stadium. (So close you can hear the home run fireworks.)

We usually make reservations and we always ask for the curved booths along the windows. This gives us a great view of the carnival mural across the room and at the same time it makes the dinner seem more intimate.

The menu has a wide array of Italian specialities centered around steaks, chicken and fish. So many great choices....my eye seems to always land on the pepperloin. (Yes, we've tried many of the other selections, but yesterday...

We both had the pepperloin, house salad and a side of gorganzola/bacon potatoes. Together with a glass of Cab...this is heaven! Could it get any better....yes, it can! All you have to do is top everything off with the strawberry/mascarpone dessert and a cup of espresso.

Service at Carmine's is superior, from the greeting at the door to the busboys. Everyone is friendly and quite conversant with the menu. They are always at your service without being obtrusive and quite willing to adjust the menu to your needs.

The "Carmine's experience" reminds us very much of dining in Palm Springs. Everything is tuned towards making sure the diner has the perfect dining experience!
