We booked a private party during closed hours for our son's wedding luncheon. Coming from California and depending on Yelp was scary, until I talked with this family over the phone. They were generously accommodating and felt like friends from the beginning. Everything, from ordering and planning to enjoying the big day, went smoothly. The bride's family are also Italians who LOVED the food as much as the rest of us. I've never tasted better sauce, meat, and pasta. The bread was delicious and the creamy Spumoni, a perfect end for luncheon. Mark was our chef and facilitator. Kudos to Mark, amazing everything. Carmine himself took pictures with the bride and groom after showing us his family wedding memorabilia on his "showcase" walls. Our guests took the leftovers to their hotels, they liked the food so well. The bride's family, who used to live in the area, commented how sad they were they didn't know about this place while they lived here. The ravioli and meat platters were everyone's favorite. Delicious! Gracious! Great value and service! "High 5....." 5 BIG, SHINY stars. Great memory for us. Thank you Carmine and Family.
The cutest and best Italian restaurant outside of Italy. We were waited on by Carmine himself and by at least four generations of his family. The meatballs and Italian sausage were to die for. The tiramisu blew my mind. Will be becoming a regular.
I'm always begging my husband to surprise and take me here. The owner is so friendly every single time I love it. And the food is warm and comfortable also. So glad they opened this restaurant!!! Yum
Great local place, my wife and I love to come here. The ravioli are my favorite served on Thursday nights, but everything I've had was delicious. The owner is always pleasant and very interesting to talk to.
We had a fabulous meal of baked ziti with the best meatballs we have ever tasted! We had the pleasure of meeting Carmine, the restaurant's owner. What a delight to meet someone who is passionate about his life and work! The restaurant's atmosphere was a delight, too. We enjoyed the historical and family memorabilia displayed throughout the restaurant, as well.
We drove to Kennewick just to try Carmine's lasagna. It's wonderful. The sausage and meatballs were flavorful and tender. We'll most certainly make the trip again!
This is a wonderful restaurant. It is in an old house that has tons of charm plus, Carmine, the owner, has Italian memorabilia all over the walls. The food is served family-style and reminded me of the Italian meals I enjoyed with my husband's family. The meatballs were the best I've ever eaten. And the sausage and ravioli were yummy, too. The service was exceptional; Alyssa, Carmine's granddaughter was always there to check on us. Carmine is such an interesting man. He found time in this very busy restaurant to talk to us and share things about his unique life. If you find yourself in the Tri-Cities, be sure and visit Carmine and Alyssa and dine on fabulous Italian food.
