This is my go to place in town. Haven't found another that I like better. I've tried them all, Chinese, American and other Italian, but Carmines is by far my favorite. I like the pizza -it's got a thinner crust & just the right amount of cheese, sauce and toppings. Prices are very reasonable. On Tuesday night they offer a... More

Carmine's is a standout for pizza in Central Connecticut which is not exactly known for amazing food. Their thin crust pizza is chewy and flavorful.

Excellent pizza and i say this as someone who is very familiar with Pepe's and Modern in New haven. Quality ingredients, the pepperoni is great, and great sauce. Carmine's is a central CT gem.

This is primarily a take out place, but they do deliver. We've tried most of their food items but especially love the breakfast pizza made with eggs, cheese and sausage or bacon. If they were open at 9 AM I'd order it for breakfast. But try it for dinner. Sounds a little weird but its great.

We order take out all the time and the quality of the food is always top notch. We recommend Carmine's for great pizza and meals. It is primarily a take out restaurant.

Plain and simple - this is a terrific pizza place! Not quite Pepes but a treasure nevertheless! Thin crust pizza, not too oily, Just delicious. I have not ordered anything else in the years I have been going there because the pizza is too good!!

Thank POCisme
