Had a lunch for two at Carmines last weekend while out shopping. Had been to Carmines many times before but not for a few months. As soon as we walked in we were welcomed like old friends and shown to our table. Service was very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and the garlic bread the best we have... More

This is the most rustic and realistically Italian restaurant that I have visited in not only Aberdeen but also Scotland. This is a no frills, fantastic value restaurant with friendly staff and delicious food. I'll certainly be back.

Went for lunch, great service, delicious food, and wonderfully low price. That's why I give this place 5 stars

Carmine's is one of the best Italian restaurants in Aberdeen and the surrounding area. You can keep all of your fancy £100 meals for absolutely nothing. For one of the best eating experiences carmine's is the place to be. If you prefer good food other than a fancy atmosphere carmine's is the place for you. 🍕

Aberdeen is a culinary wilderness with very few restaurants that I would recommend. The best is the Silver Darling and the Chester Hotel Restaurant. I am told cafe Boheme is also good but I have never been. I have eaten at many top restaurants during the last two years including Noma, Geranium, La Gavroche, Manoir de Quatre Seasons, Andrew Fairlie... More

As most reviewers note, this is a small basic cafe/restaurant serving a selection of well cooked fresh Italian food. When I visit Aberdeen, it is my treat to myself to have pizza here, the only place I will buy it in the UK. Some people hate it, some love it and I am in the latter category. I always get... More

Heard good things about Carmines. Menu looked appetising, plenty choice. Looked forward to tasty home cooked Italian food. However this was not to be. Garlic bread was undercooked and underseasoned. I had a chicken dish while my husband had ham, both looked and tasted the same, piping hot but very bland in a greasy watery sauce. £25 for 2 lunches,... More

In short... Popped in for a quick lunch, got more than we bargained for. Pizza - wet and soggy ( more of a splat on a plate ). Veggie lasagne - raw and crunchy ( more like an onion salad with cheese topping ). Dessert - cakes that are priced at ten for a pound from Asda ( best part... More
