Yeah, I’m not really going to starve to death here but, I was dang hungry. I was in the area working and it was suggested that I’d get a meatball grinder from Carmine’s. They are good, big enough. I’d say okay. I’d order out again...More

All the traditional Italian favorites served in a great environment by caring servers. Everything is made from scratch to order so you may have to wait a little and enjoy some more wine while you wait for the food to be lovingly prepared.

Pass by this place all the time thought we would give it a try. The staff was very friendly. The drinks are good nice wine selection. The food can only be described as average and bland. I hope it was just an off night.

The meal was good but not good enough to smack your lips. The best part of my meal was the pasta fagioli. The salad was good. The eggplant was good enough to finish - but I was hungry. The lasagna got good reviews. I'd go...More

Four of us ate at Carmine's last night. Overall the experience was ok. Two of our dinners (fish special and pork chops) were very good and nice portions. Two of the dinners (steak and chicken francais) were small and lacking much flavor with the chicken...More
