From the owners of Il Terrazzo Carmine, one of Seattle"s most iconic and beloved establishments, comes Carmine's Bellevue. Carmine's Bellevue brings to the east side the same level of quality in service, food, and ambiance that has made its sister restaurant a true institution in Downtown Seattle. Located at 88 102nd Avenue in Bellevue's historic Old Bellevue neighborhood, Carmines is nestled against Bellevue Park. With a rustic, timeless interior, Carmine's provides patrons an escape from the increasingly urbanized way of life. Upscale and elegant, Carmine's feels anything but stiff and pretentious. Good for business meetings, special occasions, or simply dining with loved ones, Carmine's Bellevue is a true destination on the east side.

It was so loud we had trouble hearing conversations at our table. Two of our six entrees were not what we ordered. The server was good but seemed overloaded. They were very busy.

I’ve heard the good thing about this restaurant but I was really disappointed. Overall, service was so slow and it took 40min for the first dish to be served. More importantly, we weren’t feeling comfortable that servers don’t wear mask and talk too closely to our foods or drinks even if we are fully vaccinated.

I don’t think I will visit here again.

The food is very tasty, the ambiance is impeccable and the service is good! For the price of what you’re getting you definitely get more of what you pay for. Easily one of the best Italian restaurants in the area.

The service and food was great but the atmosphere was noisy. It was difficult to hear the 4 of us around the small table. They treated us to a special dessert for our anniversary but wish we would have been seated at a quieter, more secluded area of restaurant.

Food and ambiance was good but the service was not up to the mark. The waiter was going to interest with the specials of the day and when he heard we don’t eat fish/ pork/ beef then the person suddenly stopped and didn’t show interest in neither taking order or serving it. Other wise food was okay!

Carmine’s is a great place to dine! They make you feel so welcome. The hostess, wait staff, bartender are all at your beck and call to assure you have an awesome dinner. We had a birthday celebration at our table and were pleasantly surprised with tiramisu for the celebration. It’s always hard to decide what to order because there’s so many good things on the menu. This evening we had the duck breast, oven roasted, Confitura Leg with Amarena Cherries and duck jus with risotto and broccolini. The duck was wonderful. the Caesar salad before the duck was awesome too. Great dressing and crisp romaine. Highly recommend…….my favorite!

The noise level, according to the opentable description says “energetic”. Please read that as, it was incredibly loud to the point I had a hard time hearing my wife over the noise. I’m also not old, so it’s not like I just have bad hearing. It was so loud. Could it have been mostly the table of 7 rich AF old white dudes playing credit card roulette at a table a ways away? Probably a lot of that. But it was loud from all directions. I’d rather come back at a quieter time as the food was excellent.

We’ve been to the Carmines downtown many times, but this was our first time dining in Bellevue. Happily, the food and service were every bit as excellent. They have a party room in the back and a nice patio for summer evenings. Valet parking was appreciated.

We started with a bruschetta trio - six pieces. Each one was very unique and tasty. The venison ravioli are too good to pass up. The risotto that night was a crab and crepe fraiche with asparagus. Perfect! Lamb cops were also nicely grilled. Get a delicious dessert and walk it off in the park across the street.

My husband, daughter and I enjoyed a delicious lunch at Carmine’s. Two of us started with a Caesar salad: the romaine was crisp-like and the dressing has to be the best around. My husband chose the Spinaci Soffritti which is fresh spinach lightly sautéed with lemon and garlic. So delicious! Our main dishes (mushroom risotto, halibut sautéed with lemon and capers with pasta, and grilled veal rib with rosemary and risotto) were exactly as we expected: perfectly prepared and delicious! We are looking forward to returning this weekend for dinner with our friends.

Waited at least 45minutes for our glass of wine and didn’t get served our small salads for over an hour after we arrived. This was a lunch and we both had to be other places later in the day. Was extremely disappointed with how slow the service was and uncalled for to wait 45 minutes for a simple glass of wine.
Manager came over later and apologized and gave us gift card, but it was my friend’s birthday so was sad it wasn’t up to caliber
