    All 5 of us ordered the sole. Several of us have lunch for the next day. Several of us had nothing to take home! So good!

    They converted a parking lot to a nice patio....very comfortable and moderately attractive. Service was excellent. I had the Chopped Salad (very generous) and excellent. My wife and lady with us shared a Caesar Salad and it was good. I had the cioppino and the fish and seafood in it were excellent (calamari a tad rubbery). ....the red sauce to my taste was too heavy and I didn't enjoying it as a soup nor for dunking the bread.....very important!!!!! My wife and our friend shared the Eggplant Parmesan with pasta and enjoyed it. In addition we had two coffees and only one in the party had a glass of wine. Cost was $132.00 plus tip.....about average these days, but remember we did a lot of sharing. Will return

    Let's begin with Mikey. OMG couldn't have been more delightful and helpful. He made sure every thing was done right from the time we entered till we left. Next, Steve the bartender: Since it was early, Steve had an opportunity to come to our table to make sure our drinks were filled. Then we have Lucy. She is one of the 'runners.' She was delightful with a every request we made and made sure our food was prompt to the table. she wasn't over ambitious regarding the clearing, making sure we were all finished before picking up the table. Finally, Cary our Waiter. He insured our orders were correct, served properly and kept returning to make sure we were never in need. Let's talk food: My Minestrone Soup was the best I've had in years. I could have made a meal of it, but I split an order of Eggplant Parm and could n't have been more satisfied. It was the perfect portion with steamed spinach on the side. My mother had the Veal, which she swooned. I can't go through everyone's dish, but let say there were no one complained.

    Our first visit to Carmine’s exceeded my expectations. From the delicious food (vermicelli bolognese and eggplant parmigiana) to the ambiance to the wine selection- it was fantastic. The highlight was the incredible staff - they made the experience extra special. A bonus, we learned lots about the nostalgic history of the restaurant. We will definitely be back!

    Best hidden gem in the LA dining scene. Traditional and authentic Italian food served on a new outdoor patio.
