Very upscale Italian dishes, like Oso Bucco. All the veal dishes were well prepared and very delectable.

Third time around was just as enjoyable as the first time. Enjoyed the Italian Pinot Noir and the chicken parmesan. Wife had a medley of shrimp, scallops and salmon. Service and atmosphere both excellent.

Look forward to returning during our next trip to Singer Island.

Great food and ambiance. We always receive a great value and enjoy the experience. Food sometimes comes a little fast. Easy to have private conversation and noise level is good. Food quality is good and wine list full of interesting choices.

In town from PA for a field hockey tournament with 3 high school girls. They wanted a real meal at a nice restaurant. I found restaurant on Trip Advisor. We all loved our meals, outside seating, music and overall atmosphere. Pasta with shrimp was a little pricey. Even so, I highly recommend Carmine's Trattoria!

Carmines is always a good choice. The service is great and the food is it's equal. We have been away for sometime and were so happy to be there to enjoy our meal. Our waiter couldn't have been better and was very attentive and helpful. We are New York City foodies and Carmines is a
good choice and a good match. The lamb shank was a treat and the papardelle special very filling. The octopus appetizer was exceptional and truly a delicious experience. A must for us and a reason for us to return again and again.

Carrie in the bar! Anthony in the restaurant! They are keepers. We were so delighted to find this jewel. Menu gives one anything they could possibly want in an Italian restaurant. Ladies at the front desk - jewels! We will look forward all year to our next visit to this spot! Wish we had heard about it at the beginning of our visit instead of at the end. We would have been there every night. Superb!!! That's all I can say.

 (New York Area)·Dined on November 11, 2017

Ordered a vodka martini up and it was not even closely filled to the top. When I told waiter to fill the martini glass he said that was the restaurants pour. Very disappointing and poor value. I told him I no longer wanted the martini. The owner/manager(not sure) came back with the martini filled much more to the top. Good job correcting this. I had a Caesar salad to start and chicken parm. Both were good, and portion was pretty good. Would come back but it’s shame you have to go through a whole production to have you martini filled to the top of the glass.

We live forty minutes, using the turnpike, from Carmine's. A friend who sells wholesale seafood told us about it three months ago. It has become my go to restaurant in Southern Florida. Well worth the drive. The food is soooo good we have talked about moving closer! Large menu that specializes in Italian food. The Caesar salad, with fabulous white anchovies and shaved cheese is the best ever. A must have. All the entrees are prepared for the foodie that lives in us all and are all excellent....difficult to single out just a few. The manager, Jeremiah, is responsive and engaging. Portions are substantial. Make sure to stop at the groceria to pick up some prepared foods for the following days.

Carmine's has become our "go to" restaurant for a fabulous dinner. While we live in Boynton Beach, it is well worth the thirty five minute drive. We try a different dish every time and are always amazed at how well everything is prepared. Our calamari appetizer was delicious and the portion was enough for four people . The Caesar salad was fresh and had a great shaved cheese and white anchovie topping. I had Nonna's special.....meatball, sausage and the most awesome pork chop. All served with perfectly prepared pasta in a wonderful red sauce. My wife's bolognese was soooo good that we saved some to have with our next nights dinner. The manager, Jeremiah, engaged us in conversation and was genuinely interested in our feedback. Be sure to stop off at the groceria on your way out the door. Wonderful assortment of "fit for a king", take home dinners, pastries and wines at reasonable prices.

This is a good restaurant. We were seated promptly and provided with the dinner menu and wine list. Server was not as attentive as I would have expected. Did not inquire if we would like a second glass of wine. Food was good but not great. We will give it another try in the future.

I always enjoy Carmines. I think the food is excellent as it was this time. However, we sat out on the Patio an the hostess set us near the bar area which was a little too loud and busy that night. As a result I think we were an after thought for our wait person. She never bothered to see if everything was alright or if our water glasses were refilled. No cheese or pepper was offered for the pasta. We had to ask for it. The service made the evening uncomfortable.
