Carmine's is a wonderful treat of a restaurant; full of family nostalgia and smiling faces. Carmine greets you at the door and guides you in to the historical old house, turned restaurant, where you are seated at unassuming tables with very simple table settings. The whole place envelops you like your grandma's house would. Each day they offer two dinner options; ours was either Fettuccine Alfredo or Cheese Ravioli, paired with meat plates or sausage and meatballs in red sauce. The food is amazing. In fact, we found ourselves distracted from the conversation we had started before the food came, and talked about the food the entire time we ate. We paid our bill and walked out the door, only to have my 7 year old daughter spontaneously run up to Carmine himself and give him a huge hug. I'm not kidding--that's the kind of place this is. Unique, charming, unassuming, inviting, warm, and it offers stand-alone old school Italian cooking. What a beautiful little gem.
Carmine's is a truly authentic Italian experience. Only two entree choices per night. After all, you wouldn't get invited to Grandma's for Sunday dinner and ask her why she was making only one meal! Carmine is full of stories and charm. The food is fabulous and the atmosphere literally takes you back in time! Superb!
This was our first visit to Carmine's. From the moment we walked through the door we were treated like guests in their home. The meal is old school comfortable Italian, simple and filling and delicious. The wait staff were relaxed and friendly, and even the other patrons were friendly! Carmine walks around and visits with everyone, making you feel at home. We will definitely return to try another meal on another night. Thank you Carmine and staff for a great Saturday night out.
Such a neat little place. A gem. YUMMY Italian food. One of the few restaurants I have ever been to that offers bread pudding on their dessert menu. And it was FAB!
Great family style dining, everything is delicious and portions are plentiful. Service is fast and friendly, and Carmine will come and visit you telling great stories. We have been there many times and it never disappoints!
Carmine's has great food and an excellent staff. Their customer service is above and beyond. Carmine makes it a point to talk to each table.
Oly and I were the first seated and the salad and bread were delicious. The chicken that came with the rotini was perfect, as was the sauce. Desserts were great. I had bread pudding and she had double chocolate cake with ice cream. Fun place for dinner, private with my fiance, yet fun to chat with Carmine.
