“Overpriced”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Went to this restaraunt tonight with some friends. I got veal parm. It was OK but kinda bland. Wife got some kind of dish with potato dumplings in sauce and she couldn't eat it and sent it back and told them to bring her the Steak. They charged full price 25.95 for it and she wound up getting it boxed up because everyone else was finished eating. The veal was 14.00 and gratuity was over 12.00. The waitress was great though and very knowledgeable about the food served there. She was the best part of the restaraunt

“Really good eggplant parmigiana”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

I had not been here before and now regret it. The food was great. The eggplant parmigiana was perfect withe the right amount of breading, sauce and cheese. They have whole wheat pasta, if you prefer. The prices are only slightly higher than other restaurants in the area, but the food is much better. I heard very favorable comments from other diners about their pizza.

“A Special Location but an ordinary restaurant”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Carmine's is located at the Dobson exit on I-77. Location is special because the Shelton Winery/Vineyard is just down the road. But the restaurant is just average/ordinary. I had the Lobster Ravioli; 6 pieces is all that I was served but the price was larger than the entrée. The taste was very good, no fault with that but to have such a large plate come out with a small serving was a bit disconcerting. They would have been better to use a smaller serving dish just to give the perception that the portion was larger. Restaurant was a bit noisy......no acoustical material in the restaurant, so intimate conversation is out. Server was fair....a bit too prissy and not the brightest bulb in the box. This could become a very elegant restaurant and a nice romantic setting but use smaller serving pieces and the portions will appear larger and worth the price of admission.
