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.

Classic Italian with an imaginative flair and fresh, locally sourced items. The attention to detail is lovely and the staff always paces the meal to your needs.

We went to Carmine's for a 7:15 p.m. reservation for Mother's Day. If it had been the first time we were there, we would never go back. The server was slow, the kitchen was slow and the food wasn't good.

Our evening was lovely until near the end of dinner we felt a bit of urgency (from management/servers) for our table. In the past, we have chosen this restaurant for its wonderful service, the ultimate white-linen experience. But last night was a first for us...at any restaurantI We’ve never been offered a drink on the house when we are exiting the restaurant. Though we ordered a large amount of food and drinks for four, it was made obvious to us that they wanted us out so they could seat others. Still in shock over that one...obvious they knew we knew of their rude behavior. There are too many lovely fine dining restaurants in our area...!

Food was excellent - Service was little 'slow' at times. Valet Parking is on street corner & not obvious to find.

I would return to this restaurant but it wont be top of my 'must return' list.

Carmine's is simply the best Italian Restaurant I have ever tried and I have been to quite a few. The cuisine is incredible the dishes are all uniformly delicious. The chefs have been to Italy and have a first hand knowledge of their cuisine. This restaurant is for anyone who loves great Italian food, coupled with exceptional service. You will not be disappointed.

This was her first visit. We had osso buco and linguine vongole. The osso buco was very tender, a generous peace and came with wonderful homemade pasta and vegetables. My company, who ordered the linguine, commented that his was very good but in that it was a very simple dish it wasn't outstanding . We weren't exceptionally hungry so we did not have soup salad or appetizers. They have a decent wine selection by the glass. The restaurant is bright and spacious and much of it overlooks Bellevue downtown park. They have a nice-sized terrace as well. The only negative for us where it was very busy and as a result the service was quite on the slow side. On the other hand, when our waiter like kept us waiting a little too long for our wine, he showed up with two glasses halfway through our meal as an apology.

Beautiful, elegant, and delicious. I could go on and on with this list. A well-rounded wine list and a fresh sheet to die for, this is the best place I've been in Bellevue for fine dining. The talented staff make you feel welcome and cared for without hovering. Pasta your mom would approve of and sauces that make you feel decadent and naughty. Carmine's will definitely now be at the top of our list of special dinner spots!

we felt it was really noisy for a Friday night, and the food was just so-so. Not up to the usual standard. Seafood ravioli was fishy tasting and the veal was a little on the cold side. Our antipasto plate was delicious and consistently one of my favorites, also the gnocchi was perfect. Service was outstanding. We like Carmine's though and will try again.

Good traditional Italian food prepared with good ingredients and seasoned well, priced appropriately.
Beware, the wine list is e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e, and the corkage punitive and outrageous! $25 for the first bottle and $35 for the second!!! There are 1-2 low end wines at $48, and everything else is way up from there. It’s still better to take your own if you’re only going to drink 1 bottle.
Note to owners: lower the corkage to $15-20, and stop trying to pay the rent off your wine sales.
