I can count on one had the number of meals I have eaten in a restaurant that have absolutely wowed me. Carmine's is defiantly one of them! If you are anywhere near Kennewick or the surrounding area, you must go experience this for yourself. My husband and I live three hours away. We were looking for a little weekend getaway... More

Great food, fresh salad, yummy bread! Family style so check their menu online to see what they are serving. Best to make a reservation, especially for busy weekend nights. Locally owned and managed by owners.

There food Is so good. It is our first time there. I took my wife for our 10 year anniversary and they made it unforgettable. Mr Carmine and his grand daughters are so friendly they even showed us his wedding pictures from 56 years ago when he got married. I have to say Carmines is the best restaurant I have... More

Amazing food and great people! Carmine chatted with us quite a bit and told us about his family and the restaurant. We had the lasagna and ravioli with the meat plate, all of it tasted fantastic. The chocolate cake was just as good! Support local people who make great food and provide great conservation!

We had dinner here again. There are two entrees to choose from each night. Both were great! Be sure to make a reservation as this is a busy place. And save room for dessert.

I search out great Italian food in every travel destination: Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, Charlotte, Detroit, Minneapolis and others. If you like great pasta, great bread, a quaint nostalgic atmosphere, this is it. It's like being in a Italian social club. Limited nightly menu so you must have a craving for what's on the evening menu.. Wednesday is lasagna. It's excellent... More

You know that chicken slices with the printed on grill marks? Yeah ... That's what we were served in the chicken fettuccine. We liked it the first time, was okay the second time, third time was the last time. Sorry Carmine.
