Like having dinner at Nona's. Only two dinner choices and served family style. Try both, it's worth it. Friday menu was spaghetti and meatballs and rotini with Pena Rosa sauce. Seriously good.

It's in that range. I HIGHLY recommend you go there. Carmine will delight you and the food is unsurpassed. I'm going to make another trip 150 miles from my home just to have dinner there again.
Do they offer take out?
