Description: "Carmine Giardini was born in the town of Vittorito, Italy, in the province of Abbruzzi. He spent his early childhood there, going to school, and helping out with the family farm. As a young man, Carmine came to the United States and completed his schooling here. Carmine GiardiniHe had a vision that very few people saw; he opened the Palm Beach Gardens location in 1987 on PGA Blvd when there was no PGA National, Gardens Mall or much of anything on PGA Blvd, at that time. Fortunately this move was a big success from the day he opened. People drove for miles just to shop there. They had heard about the uniqueness and couldn't wait to see it. He had all the same departments as the other locations but wanted to offer pizza, so he hired a pizza chef from NY and put in a real brick oven and that's when Carmine's Pizzeria was born! He started with a small pizzeria and eventually it grew to become a 4-star, upscale, white tablecloth restaurant that is now Carmine's La Trattoria"

This is a restaurant/grocery/deli/bakery. There is no less way to explain it. It is also an experience that you will want to repeat again and again.

Quality, gourmet Italian foods abound in every department, and when I head to this part of Florida I stock up here for my vacation spot and to take home.

I also like to come here for lunch, where we sit on the covered patio and enjoy the Italian creations of the restaurant while taking in the view of the boats parked alongside on the intercoastal waterway.

Want something for dinner but don't want to have to cook? Carmine's has special dinners at very affordable prices that you can pick up here and take home. A great deal! Or, you can order and take home on of the best pizzas you are going to find. They also have the greatest gluten free pizza crust you are ever going to experience.
The grocery has an overabundance of gluten free products, including pasta made in Italy, and the Italians have a leg up when it comes to making pasts.

So much to enjoy/

We made the mistake by going on a weekend. We were with another couple. We had all eaten there before and liked it. When the food arrived one fra diaablo had zero spice so it got sent back. it was never right so customer changed his dish. Everyone else said everything was just ok. When they arrived with the food he had no idea who ordered what and we had to raise our hand. Our waiter didn't even bring the check and sent the busboy. Never asked if we wanted coffee or dessert. We later saw our waiter in the outside area smoking a cigarette. They have to do better than this. Lots of places to eat with none of these problems. Get it together. Hire more experenced waiters.

One of our go to restaurants for 2018 season . Has an amazing gourmet store attached which has EVERYTHING that can be imagined from bakery to butcher to take out food

The restaurant is primarily Italian but seafood is a main stay and the steaks are great too

I especially liked the kobe burgers for lunch/brunch . Not to be missed !!

Thank Ronald R

Will I go back ? The service is alway wonderful and friendly.The atmosphere relaxing,the parking ; oh the parking ;thank goodness there is valet service.This trip I ordered my favorite their eggplant parm.This trip it was not as good it had a freezer taste.The sauce was good but there was that hint of freezer when you went further into it. I thought it was me however after we left I asked another in our party that also had the same dish what they had thought of their meal. We were in agreement ,a slight freezer taste NOT freezer burn . As if it had been made a few days or so before and had been frozen with Fresh sauce placed on top. Will I go back? Yes! Why because I am hoping to try it again and not have that freezer taste but if it does it will be th last time.

We got seated in Anthony’s section and upon his arrival he was brash and impersonal, and acted like we were wasting his time. We ordered our food and apps and salads came but then there was a big lag where we did not see Anthony for 20 minutes (see end of review), our waters and drinks were empty. We had to wave down a manager (and so did table next to us, with an f-bomb added in), and finally got our beverages refilled. Entrees came and food was good. We were in a hurry and ordered desserts to go to eat in our hotel room. Desserts came and bill came, and I gave Anthony what I felt was an appropriate tip for his poor service. We went out to the valet and waited for our car. It was very unsettling to look over and discover Anthony standing outside and glaring at us while we waited for our car (think Tony Soprano glare). Not only did this frighten our family, but he was clearly ignoring all of his tables of customers inside. Maybe this why we lost him for 20 minutes during our meal...he must have been harassing other customers over his tips. Finally back in our room, excited for our desserts, we found 2 salads...service here is awful!!!!
Overall rating was a 2 - food was a 4 service 0. #fireanthonynow.
