Carmine's is well-known as one of the best restaurants in Ybor. The food - ranging from salads or cuban sandwiches, to crab pasta or shrimp piccata - is delicious, fresh, and unique to the Tampa area's culture. The server was attentive and even my somewhat picky parents were pleasantly surprised with the meal. The only (minor) downside was that it's not at all a quiet place to enjoy your meal, probably still one of the most chill places to eat in Ybor, so if you're looking for some outstanding food to start a night out in the area and aren't looking for a romantic candlelight ambiance, this is a great place to go. Also, my cocktails were perfect and less expensive than I was expecting.
