    Shared plate (family-style) dining is the format here and the mouth-watering possibilities make for potential arguments that no one can really lose because ANY selection will be exquisite. TIP: try the Chianti - it is a winner!

    We had a wonderful dinner at Carmine’s. I understand why this place has been an institution for so many years! Our server, Morgan, was super friendly and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to pay another visit soon.

    This location is primarily street parking and it was very busy in the area for a Wednesday night at 530. Restaurant was slow that night so service was great. Love the family style dining. The shrimp diavolo was just spicy enough and the veal parmigiana was excellent. And don’t sleep on the garlic rolls! For dessert we should’ve stayed traditional with the tiramisu or cannolis but went with the gelato cookie. Cookie was too hard. Overall a great business dinner.

    The ragu fungi should be labeled as veal ragu fungi. We were surprised when we saw a lot of veal in the dish.
    Carmine's On PennResponded on April 5, 2024
    Thank you for your comments regarding our Ragu con Funghi. Servers are instructed to make customers aware of veal in this particular menu item. Sincere apologies if you were not told. Our sustainably raised veal is a popular menu item and used in this dish to give it it's rich, earthy characteristic and flavor.

    Waited for 25 minutes to see the waiter and get anything more than water. Food was fair and tastes like caned sauce and average ingredients. I didn’t see the value for the prices charged and 20% service fee included in my bill. This used to be a go to neighborhood family dinner place, I would not come back as cheaper options for really good Italian food exist nearby.

    It is disappointing to hear of your experience when dining with us recently, Tom. We regret losing you as a customer.
