This is the worst. It is not even close to good Italian food. The sauce is canned and nothing is fresh and to top it off, it is expensive. Nothing but tasteless grease and poor service. I can't believe people actually pay for this food. Reminds me of the college dorm food.

I am a regular at Carmines, I remember comming in for the first time, it was nice and Romantic. The staff ther is really attentive and the ladies are Beautiful. The food is the best, and their Sampler is the "BOMB".

How could anybody possibly recommend this restaurant? The food is terrible and an insult to Italians. If you like Marinara sauce out of a jar, stale rolls, veal that tastes like chicken, and grease then you will love this place. If you are serious about food, this place is not for you.

As everyone has already read before, the food here is great. One thing that i have yet to read is about their great side sporst bar. This sports bar is connected to the restaurant as is part of it. The admostfere there is friendy and with a lot of regulars. This place is great to go watch a game, play some pool, listen to live bands, dance with the DJ or just to hang out with your boys/girls. If you havent visit the sports bar yet, i would really recommend that you do. Not to forget about the employees there either, I have to say that they are great. Good service and if you become a regular, is like been in CHEERS...
One last thing i would like to say hello to everyone that works there you guys are great. Special hello to all the beautiful ladies that work there.

Budlightman.
