Carmine’s Italian – carminesrestaurantandbar.com
A staple for 20 years, it is time for you to revisit Carmine’s Italian restaurant; you will find the same delicious home-style food in a remodeled contemporary atmosphere. It was hard to pick some favorites, for starters the Burrata Mozzarella Antipasti is a must, along with the Lentil soup, for pastas a staff favorite is the “Gumbi” (rigatoni w/mushrooms, meatballs), other favs are the Pasta Rosa (penne w/chicken, herbs), and Pasta Pescatore (shrimp, scallops, clams). For main dishes, we loved the Chicken Parmigiana, others are the Tuscan-style Lamb Shank, and the Sea Bass alla Ghiotta. Don’t leave without trying their BBQ Chicken Pizza or the Margherita. Enjoy the live music and full bar from their Sugar Lounge, you will find great craft beer like Boddingtons and Red Trolley. Open for lunch and dinner, except Monday, dinner only.
