Diner Reviews
  • "This is a really nice, old-fashioned friendly Italian American restaurant. Their Black and White pizza is amazingly good as an appetizer. The proprietor is friendly and boisterous, and we liked him even though he complained that Open Table took personal relationships out of booking reservations."

  • "Carmine's 2 is a neighborhood favorite for over 40 years. This romantic establishment is family owned and operated. The staff is extremely friendly and very knowledgable. Great food and good times!"

  • "For those who appreciate traditional Italian food (also great specials!), this is a rare find in Los Angeles. It feels as if you've walked off the street from L.A. and in to a NYC restaurant. Service and friendly and welcoming, the food is always superb, the wine list fantastic. It's a small "neighborhood" restaurant on Santa Monica Blvd, and they deserve to be supported. I encourage everyone to try it at least once since I know you'll go back once you do!"

  • "Very pretty, excellent service experienced. Bread plate had to be removed & exchanged as it appeared greasy..like a prior customer used it and the plate was not bussed. Same issue with a water glass, it had to be replaced, full of water & ise, yet an obvious smudge of whatlooked like chocolate on the rim..ick. Caesar saladsvery fresh though my wife said her lettuce was a bit wilted...what happened to table side made Caesar they stated on web site? Salads made up in kitchen, we did ask for anchovie and they glady garnished them at our request. Gnocchi was good with meat sauce but again "good" not great. Sauce could be enhanced. Wife"s Veal Marsala was very good but not "great." Carmine's is worth another try but the Chef needs to kick it up!"

  • "A little noisy. A large group arrived while we were there, and the decibel level went up and up. Otherwise we loved the food, the décor and the overall vibe. It reminded us of some of the great Italian restaurants in Brooklyn in our youth before Brooklyn became "hip.""
