Being close to closing, we never felt rushed. The food was really good and we really enjoyed visiting with Carmine and hearing about his life. We'll be... More

We were staying in Pasco a few days for an event we were attending. We wanted someplace local with good food and a family atmosphere. Carmine's was such a delightful surprise. Carmine greeted us - it was a very busy evening. He spent a few minutes describing the menu. The food was very tasty with a homemade feel to it.... More

Romantic,sweet, comfy atmosphere...Delicious food! If italian food is what you're craving come to Carmines! This was my mine and my husband's first date. The owners made sure it was memorable so much that we go every year for our anniversary and in between because it's that good!!

They have the best Italian food in town. They only make a few dishes every night but you won't be disappointed. The staff is so friendly. And love the atmosphere

A jewel not to be missed! Hearty Italian food served family style in MOST generous portions at your table with bread, salad, meatballs and sausage on the side. Wine is served in a Jelly glass. The food is scrumptious. The service so attentive. And Carmine...he should be called a Bee Charmer...his stories are authentic and heartfelt...the topper to our early... More

The menu may be limited, but the food is wonderful. All the salad & bread you might want. Every entree comes with a side of italian sausage & meatballs in a superb marinara. A must try.
