We so enjoyed the family style dining. Sharing many plates allowed us to pick favorites. Ours was the chicken, pasta with Gorgonzola sauce. The salad was perfect and the bread outstanding! Sitting on the terrace made us feel like we were dining in Italy!

Had a nice meal with my son, his fiancé, and sister- in-law and brother-in-law on the veranda. Not fancy by any means but great Italian food served family style. We ordered 4 regular entrees (priced for two people - family portions for four also available)...More

We have been here a few times, and as usual, it was great. Our service was wonderful, as was the food. Sadly, however, our garlic knots were just a little over done. However, that didn't stop us from having a couple.

It's not the worse and it's definitely not the best food it try's to be authentic by not having any descriptions on the food the service was EXCELLENT and deserves a minimum 20% gratuity like my title says " FOGETTABOUTITT"

There is just something extra comforting to this restaurant. I believe it is the combination of the location, in a neighborhood (so unusual for this part of the world) and the delicious dishes served family style (a.k.a huge portions). Service was fantastic - our main...More

Meals are family style. If you order a meat entree you may want to order a pasta entree as well. The chicken parmigiana was amazing!!

Even if you aren't a big fan of family style service and menu options don't miss this one. All entrees, salads, appetizers, and deserts are for 2 or family style for the table. We had the Montana chicken for our main, served over ziti and...More

Carmine's was opened in 1994. Brad Ritter has been involved in operations since 2005, became a managing partner in 2009, and became the sole proprietor in 2014. He worked with his partners to give Carmine's a facelift in 2006 featuring artwork by local artist Kerry Kice who adorned our old building's interior with murals and artistic paint touches. He has been fans of Carmine's since the beginning so the changes made were modest to keep the real flavor and feel of the restaurant that has been so popular.
