General Info:
Carmine's on Penn was established in 1994 as a neighborhood, family-style Italian restaurant. Our atmosphere is casual, festive, and friendly. Chef Ryan Hill leads the kitchen brigade with many years of experience, promising a consistency that is rare indeed. Our servers bring the chalkboard menu to life, describing dishes and offering advice on selecting just the right combination of food and beverage. Carmine's can easily accommodate large groups and private parties for any occasion - business dinners, birthdays, graduations, rehearsal dinners - or just to celebrate life. Our wines are specially selected from Italy to complement our menu as the pairing of food and wine is a logical combination for the Carmine's experience.

Success! Thanks for posting your review of Carmines On Penn. You’ve done the world some good today.


The chef at this place must be a real hack with the palette of a dead person. My dish had sautéed shrimp in it that were most definitely boiled. Learn how to cook jackass!!!

Never Again for me

We placed a large take out order for a party we were hosting. We picked Carmines on penn (even though it was more expensive than other local italian) because they appeared to cater towards diet restrictions. We called before we placed our order to make sure they could make a vegan meal, we double checked when we placed the order and when we picked it up that one item was in fact vegan. We went to serve the food at... view more

Will Never Go Back

If you like over-price quantities of mediocre food, Carmine’s on Penn is the place for you. The Veal Parmigiana was boring with small proportions for $40. The Baked Ziti was dry with some sort of crust on the top. Certainly not worth $28. We had to order extra marinara sauce just to add some flavor. And if course the marina sauce was as unremarkable as it gets. Perhaps they haven’t heard of garlic and spices. It’s mo... view more

This is a popular place but I find it blah.\r \r We had our company party here and were put in the back room, where it was really quiet (not in a good way). Trying to get the employees in the 'party' mood, I asked the server if they could play some music in the background, and was told that there are no speakers in the back room. Wow, way to create such great atmosphere, Carmine's.\r \r The server was fine but ... view more

Great place but don't ask management for a suggestion

I am a manager of well known Chinese restaurant and am shocked how uninformed the assistant manager is when it comes to the menu. How can you be in a leadership position, if you can't do the job yourself? I am disappointed by his lack of knowledge. Especially since there is nothing written down except for chalkboards. Dinner was good. The food runner (tall, blond, guy) was more entertaining than anyone else ther... view more

We have been going to Carmine's since the mid 70s and watched the restaurant change over the years. Unfortunately, the new management has taken the experience to a new low. The food is ok (but not amazing like it used to be). For a large good, they ""do not serve"". We had to serve ourselves and were penalized by our group size and charged 20% for no service. We sat and sat, looking at dirty plates--finally aski... view more

Great value for your money

I am relatively new to Denver and a friend in town suggested we go there this past week for dinner. I went with a group of 6 and we had a great time. The staff were very good at their job and amusing to boot. The best thing I liked was when one of us suggested we order an entree that the server did not feel was a good value, he let us know. The wine list had a very good variety of options at reasonable prices. Most o... view more
