We have been extremely happy with this restaurant for over 20 years. It is in a residential neighborhood with lots of life on the streets. The atmosphere is varied with comfortable tables inside, additional tables in the closed in patio area, and a comfortable bar. The food is always top notch based on Italian cooking with servings for two or family style. My favorites are the pear salad and veal pazzo along with spaghetti Capo. The staff is always very knowledgeable and very helpful.
We had great food and service. This is one of our go to restaurants.
After hearing about Carmine's on Penn for many years, this was our 1st visit. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgable, describing each dish. Portions are huge...plenty for leftovers! The Ravioli appetizer was fresh and the sauce added interesting flavor. The pear salad was light, crunchy, and very flavorful. Chicken Montana was exquisite...Chicken Parmigan equally tasty. Overall a great dining experience!
I've been to Carmine's several times, tried a different dish each time, and have yet to be disappointed. Also, their tiramisu, which is quasi deconstructed, is fantastic!
Food was excellent along with the atmosphere. Waiter was great in helping with ordering and suggesting food choices, would definitely recommend to others.
The food was amazing as always. I have never had a bad meal or service here. Nate our was awesome.
This is a great place for a group of people who like to share food. Might be difficult to have people who are super picky, have restrictive diets, or don't like sharing. Food is ordered and served family style. The cesar salad was fine, but not extraordinary. Our pasta with veal ragu and mushrooms was really tasty. It was like beef stroganoff with way more flavor. A hug for the old tummy.
The food was delicious. Loved the garlic bread, the pasta sauce and all was very well presented.
Always great food and huge portions! The service was good and the cannoli’s are amazing.
Been here many times for casual meals and special occasions. Never disappointed.
Loved our experience! it was easy to leave 20% with such amazing serves and food.
Great food and equally Great service. Understand why Carmine's has withstood the test of time!!
The pasta was soggy, the chicken was cold and after the meal was broght to the table the waiter was nonexistant.
There were MANY items on the menu that were unidentifiable example: "Moose"....and no description as to what the hell that could be. Some items we recoginized BUT were told were "non traditional"
We took the waiters word for a popular dish but couldn't eat the dish...four of us....non thought it was edible. Soggy, almost paste like pasta.
I had to leave the table to find another waiter to order dessert (included)....and still left before he came, 20minutes.
Our worse dining experience in years.
We went to Carmine's for restaurant week. We didn't think the restaurant week menu was a good value, so we ordered off of the regular menu. The food was good for family-style Italian, although a little expensive due to the portion size. The ambiance on a Tuesday was too quiet - there wasn't any music on and the staff were around the bar chatting. I have been to Carmine's before for a birthday party and had a very pleasant experience on a Friday when it was loud and active, but during the week it was very different. Overall, good food, big portions, nice staff.
The entries, apps, and desert are glorious! The wine list extensive. We had a great time celebrating a birthday! Recommend.
In my top restaurants in the metro denver atea. Fantastic, service,knowledgeable, and non pretencious. Best desserts
This was a wonderful evening meal and service. The staff was friendly and social and the food delicious.
Best friends. Mate the server was absolutely outstanding
Great food Love the 2 and 4 plates BUT staff seems rather rude and arrogant Just about ran me over on the way to restroom.. (2x) Restrooms are smaller than on an airline and only !! This legal for size of restaurant ?
The service was great, even though it was very crowed and was "5280 Restaurant Week".
The food was good, however not quite like it was when the restaurant first opened 25 years ago.
Love the neighborhood atmosphere, will continue to come Carmines.
Unfortunately it seems Carmine’s has gone downhill. Staff seemed overwhelmed and the food quality was poor. Not what we remembered from all the years we’ve been going here - really disappointing to see!
Really enjoyed the restaurant week menu. Their vodka sauce is yummy and the shrimp Parmesan and house salad both were great. Had to add the tiramisu to finish the meal!
Disappointing night celebrating birthdays. The food was very average.
I went with my girlfriend for the first night of Denver Restaurant Week. We had a great table in the back where we could see the entire restaurant. Arthur was our server. He recommended the Carbanara and the mussels. Amazing. The free bread delivered to our table at the beginning was out of this world! We can't wait to come back! We also thought Arthur was awesome!
We love Carmine’s. We had our wedding day reception/dinner there and it’s a favorite of ours. We took my step kids this time, both teens. We ordered the carbonara pasta, the pasta with meatballs in vodka sauce, and the sausage and peppers. Everything was delicious and everyone enjoyed the meal. We love family style because we get leftovers which makes this a good choice for the price. The staff is always pleasant and in tune to their customers and we love the location, a little restaurant tucked in to a residential neighborhood.
The food was so delicious. The tomato topping of the portobello appetizer was so yummy. The parmesan on the chicken parmigiana was very fresh. It was a little pricier than I was expecting but the leftovers lasted for 3 more meals, so it was worth it. Excellent service, as well: after my meal, I gathered up all my things and headed to the restroom before leaving. While I was there, I got a call from the hostess, saying that I had left my hat on the table. Very grateful!
The Rolatini was a bit salty and the service was just okay... We have been going to Carmine's for years and this was the anomaly though.
Food and service was great. The only thing is it would be nice if they offered a side of spaghetti instead of forcing you to buy a plate for two just to get your red sauce fix.
Overpriced pasta and slow service. It took over 2 hours! And we didn’t order anything complicated, just pasta. Disappointed and don’t plan to return
First visit and will return.
dined with three generations of family, a three-month old, a four-year old and a vegetarian. Our waiter made excellent suggestions and we all enjoyed our meals. Garlic knots and salads were especially enjoyed.
we will be back
Had a nice meal but had a 10 person group in the room which caused some conversations to be louder between ourselves then was necessary.
Everything was fine. There were about 25 12 year old girls dining next to us who left their table 3 times to take selfies outside and stomped across the floor as if they just received brand new, heavy feet that day, but that isn't the restaurant's fault. Fun place, good food.
Food was great. The restaurant was overwhelmed due to the amount of people for the Valentine's day holiday, however, many of the servers were attentive and did a great a job. Our service was horrible. Our water glasses sat empty, my wine glass sat empty, our bread was forgotten, it took 30 minutes (no exaggeration) for our one gelato to show up after ordering it. At least 45-60 minutes of our total visit was wasted on just waiting for our server to attend to us. To add insult to injury, he proceeded to take our to-go box with our leftovers when he took our payment (unbeknownst to us until we were getting ready to leave). We tried to grab the waiter to bring it to his attention or ask what he did with it, no such luck. Proceeded to tell the hostess who just shrugged us off and told us to have a good night. I love Carmine's but I won't be back any time soon.
Late reservation so service was very sub par for the money.
The food, service and ambiance is always above average. Great cocktail, wine and beer
Food was good. The service was very slow and not friendly.
What an amazing Valentine’s meal! My wife and I were served by Nate and he was knowledgeable and very attentive. The food was amazing! The atmosphere was beautiful and romantic. This has long been a favorite of mine and will only rise in my mind after our last visit!
Valentine’s Day dinner!! Everything was excellent.
Came back to Carmine's and had N8 as our server again. He makes the already incredible food so much more amazing with his energy and humor. We very much enjoyed him as a server! We will be returning without a doubt.
