Meals were excellent. Pizza was slightly overdone even for coal/wood oven style. Even so, it was good. Deserts were really good.

We have almost always had a good experience at Carmine's Coal Fire Pizza. However, our mother's day experience on Sunday for brunch was not one of the them. We were seated promptly, received two glasses of water (?} and a small plate of mediocre bread with dipping sauce, and no one came near our table for about 15 minutes. We saw many hostesses but almost no wait staff. My son went to the hostess stand and told them that if someone did not come to our table in three minutes, we were leaving. If restaurants are busy, we never mind waiting, but we wanted to have a drink/coffee at the very least. After our complaint, they became overly solicitous. Our waitress was fine, but blamed the delay on another person. Not sure if that was valid or not. She removed the charge on our bill for our shared appetizer which was nice. The food was OK but somewhat overpriced for what we ate. We were quite disappointed as we have eaten there for dinner with good experiences many times and order takeout pizza there frequently. We will go back, but not for a holiday meal. The alcoholic drinks (mimosas, bloody marys, etc.) were very pricey, so we settled for coffee. In my 80 years, I have been to much nicer brunches. Carmines did not seem to be prepared to handle this event.

Close but needs work. They pretty much cover all bases for traditional Italian. Pizza had a nice thin crust but for some strange reason was unusually salty ..not sure if it was an intended ingredient in their sauce or if somebody goofed. Meatballs and spaghetti was not served hot and "large"spaghetti portion was a little small - no good reason to skimp on pasta and must have been sitting around waiting for our scallops entree. Also prefer when spaghetti is not coated in sauce but rather the sauce is nicely poured on top. Server was very personable but seemed to disappear for long periods of time including when we were waiting to order. Prices on several items were 20% less than their PGA location so was a pretty good value.

There were 12 of us. We had 4 teens at one table and 8 adults at another [parents & grandparents.] We had calamari and salad appetizers. I didn't eat them but understand everyone else did and like them. We then had 4 pizzas for the grownups table and 2 for the teens. The "Polo" was spectacular. I have celiac and have to say the gluten free crust was thin & crispy. Some of those who tasted mine actually liked it better than theirs.

We have been coming here for years and it never fails to please.

It is a very busy place. We are a private room because there were 15 of us and I was grateful for that. Service and food were good. A sign on the entrance said wine half price but were told it is only in the bar. Sign did not say that.

We have eaten here in the past. Great family restaurant! We had an infant and 82 yo senior in tow and everyone was really enjoyed the food and drinks. Delicious salads, pizza and my husband enjoyed the prime rib special. Jake, our server was Great! Friendly, solicitous and did not rush during ordering or exiting. We’ll definitely be back.

This is a great neighborhood restaurant with excellent food. Yes, it is reasonably priced. We have been their prior to this and enjoyed that visit as well. However, our server was less than attentive to the point of ignoring our needs. We were in a booth with really good friends and were able to have a conversation at a reasonable level. Make reservations, especially in season. Carmines is more than a pizza place.

Booked a table for 6:00pm, asked to sit outside due to noise level; asked for medium rare prime rib, arrived over cooked, sent it back and ordered salmon, salmon arrived 45 minutes later as the group was leaving; rest of the food was ok, have had better Italian at chain restaurants; stopped and told the manager it was a terrible dining experience ; he replied: “I know, maybe you try us again”. I think not.
