We thoroughly enjoyed Carmine's La Trattoria. The many menu choices are varied, and we both loved our salad and entrees. We will be back.

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.

The only reason for the low rating for value was they added an$1.50 charge for anchovies on their Caesar salad .... how incredibly chinsy and petty. Really Carmine?

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.

I've eaten at Carmine's before and enjoyed the experience. This time we were seated outdoor with the live music and had to shout to hear each other. 2 different waiters approached our table and voiced their upset that each other should be the waiter at our table! Not our problem. Definitely don't eat outside if there is music and expect to have a conversation.

honoring a reservation is hard to find in some restaurants but Carmine's certainly honored ours. I would say the food was excellent but a bit pricey. There are some very good places to eat with menus that are wonderful but better value. I would suggest that Carmine's offer a prix fixed meal with 3 courses. We eat at a restaurant that offers a very wonderful menu with a price of $35.00 per person. Will return to Carmine's but perhaps for lunch or a light dinner.
