We went to Carmine's right after opening on a Sunday and had a really nice experience. There was only one other couple when we arrived and we were promptly seated. Whenever I got to an Italian restaurant for the first time, I always judge things...More

Carmines is our Go to Italian restaurant in the winter. The place is nice and cosy and the pizza is hot and the servers are eager to please. Hard to find as it is hidden in a little corner off the main part of East...More

We love this place tucked away in the corner of a strip mall. I'm very picky about my marinara sauce (I don't like a lot of spices in it) and theirs is just perfect in their lasagna. My husband always gets the Chicken Parmesan and...More

I ate here on Sunday night 10/14 with a group of about 25 family members. The restaurant had been notified to expect us so you think they would have enough staff to handle us as well as their few other customers. One of our family...More

I have been twice and definitely two different experiences although I felt the food was excellent both times. The atmosphere, I think, depends upon the night visited. The food was served hot and promptly both times. It is not a big "meat" selection but the...More

I've eaten at Carmine's for years now, ever since they took over the space from the old Sal's. So disappointed my last visit - the eggplant parm appeared to be a frozen breaded product - watery and tasteless. Craving some Italian food? Travel a few...More
