Amazing food, very nice portions, and beautiful setting.
Excellent experience from start to finish. For our party of four we shared a large pear salad and 3 entrees (for 2.) It was a perfect amount. Delicious and look forward to returning.
Charged 20% of are bill cause of covid no pre warning !!!
Wonderful evening! Great food!
Everything from the Meatball appetizer to House Salad and two entrees was delicious. The Chicken Montana was absolutely yummy! Sitting outside was fun and the heater was a nice surprise, although it was a beautiful Colorado evening. We'll be back for more!
We were a table of 2 women and the hostess placed us at the worst table while seating a male/female couple right after us at a better table. When we asked for a change she refused and was extremely rude.
Waitstaff was exceptional and food was delicious.
Saturday evening we enjoyed another fabulous dinner at Carmines on Penn, so many choices and still we go to our favorites, Chicken Parm & Carbonara. And again, Chef and Team knocked it our of the Park. One problem though, way too much food and had to take some home...poor us!!
Thanks Brad & Team, wonderful again!!
Service was excellent, food was delicious and timely, great recommendations and the outdoor dining ambience was superb! Definitely will come again!!!
The family and I loved coming for dinner! Great food and service, would definitely come back!
We had the pleasure of Arthur taking care of us. The food could not have been better. He could not have been more attentive. Every small request was remembered and done with a smile. Literally can't wait to come back!
Carmine's was our first 'date' since March, however we ordered take-out regularly over the last 6 months. This is our favorite restaurant. The owners & staff are awesome and the food is delicious. Garlic knots, pear salad and Chicken Marsala were all delicious. eating outside was delightful.
We have been coming to Carmine's on Penn of a long time, but more often recently with our adult children. Food is always consistently excellent and the service never disappoints.
GREAT food but wine was gone bad. Outside seating with heaters if cold.
Was sort of dead atmosphere good food friendly staff
Great food. Knowledgeable staff. They seem Covid safe w all staff wearing masks and keeping surfaces clean. Even the busboys were good.
Food was excellent and the waiter was very attentive. Waiter also was very knowledgeable about the food options and recommended an outstanding bottle of wine. Very pleased with the overall dining experience. Looking forward to dining at Carmine’s again.
Such an enjoyable evening!
Great food! Attentive service!
Despite foolish dictates by the governor and the hysterical health department, carmines has done a good job creating a nice atmosphere. Food was very good. Had the mussels a good salad and veal piccata. All were very good. Hope the government goons take their foot off the neck of the people.
The 20% service charge that doesn't go the server was confusing. It was a fairly expensive dinner and adding the service charge and a tip adds 30%-40% to the bill
Delicious as always! So happy we discovered this gem
It was our first time and everything we ordered was excellent! Definitely going back again soon!
Wonderful outside seating- there was even live music as we ate. Our server was friendly and helpful.
It was excellent
Always great food and wonderful leftovers. Brad is the most gracious host/owner. Take your out of state guests there.
Awesome. Best Italian in Denver. Recommended? Heck yea.
Great dinner. Appreciated the outdoor seating and safe distancing
We try and come a few times a year. It’s where my wife and I celebrate our wedding Anniversary. The street dining was a welcome addition. Added to the enjoyment for us. We ran late and while you could tell the hostess wasn’t happy the team still worked to accommodate.
I would recommend to your staff to let people know that the streets are blocked off, as a courtesy so they can plan accordingly.
The night was terrific.
The food was AMAZING but the Caesar salad was by far the best I’ve ever had!
Carmine's has been a go to for our family for decades. Our last visit was not good. We were seated in the street (COVID). It was a chilly night and there were no heaters (all of this was fairly understandable but did not contribute to a positive dining experience). Throughout the meal, we could not and did not get attention from the servers. Every time we needed something (to order, rolls, water, etc...), we had to flag the servers down (sometimes twice). The food was good. However, I was disappointed to see there was a 20% gratuity added without explanation. We are a family of five. I've never experienced an automatic gratuity for a group of five. The entire experience was less than good. I tried to speak with someone about the bill, but gave up after I once again couldn't get anyone's attention.
The outdoor seating is not ideal as it’s uneven and in the street, but the food and drink were great. A close second was our kind and helpful waitress. Thanks for being a slice of NY in Denver.
I have never been to a place that adds 20% gratuity to a 4 persons check. And your waitress does not tell you about it. Weird.
The warm rolls were so delicious, salad was fresh, and ravioli tasted. The restaurant couldn’t control the faking ash from forest fires, but otherwise the outdoor seating was perfect. I felt very comfortable with their safety precautions.
great food, had the street blocked off so would could dine at tables outside, great service. The best Tiramisu ever!!
My husband and I have been frequently Carmine's for years. Dinner was better than I ever remember! The pear salad was excellent, sausage and peppers were delicious, great flavors and we tried the pork ravioli's which were over the moon!
Appreciate outdoor seating. Very comfortable and delicious experience.
2 of the 4 people in our group got sick.
I haven’t been here in many years so we came here to celebrate a friends birthday. They asked about who’s birthday we were celebrating but at the end of the meal they never offered anything for the celebration. Also their meals are done family style or for 2 people. Our waiter never explained that the family style meal didn’t include anything except for the main course. I was surprised to find out when they brought it there was no vegetables or starch included. If we had known that we might have ordered something additional. Other than that the food was good as was the ambiance and the general service.
Fabulous food!!!!! Loved the outdoor seating option
Carmines is really trying to abide by the social distancing enforcement, however, half of their outdoor seating is on a slanted road. This was very uncomfortable. We also didn’t have enough space on our table for our food. Meatballs were blah. I don’t think I will be going to Carmines anytime soon.
