The bread tasted store bought....

The bread tasted store bought. The salad was soggy. For the meal they didn't even offer fresh parm or fresh pepper. For this price, they should offer at least the parm and pepper service. I would rather spend my money on Cascone's or Garozzo's.

Don't get the Carbonara.

Atmosphere was great and everyone's food looked great, except for mine. This Carbonara was pretty much fettucini alfredo. It was drounded in the sauce. It maybe had 5 tiny little pieces of proscuitto in the whole dish. Wasn't impressed. Ill try and eat there again. Just wont get the Carbonara.

Tastes like a frozen Italian dinner

I was expecting a lot from this restaurant as it was highly recommend by a number of people. It was a huge disappointment. First, left over food on my drink glass, as well as dirty silverware. The bread was as lackluster as common sliced Wonderbread. A salad flat lifeless and drowning in dressing. An entree that tasted like it was out of the frozen section of the supermarket, with a sauce that had sugar added for taste.

What a hidden treasure!!

For a first date I was just lost in the romance of the tiny place. We had chocolate martinis, and Shrimp diablo. Everything was perfect!!! The glow of the flames from where the chefs were working right in front of us added to my pleasure. THANK-YOU for the wonderful memory.

Delicious!

Went to Carmen's for a friends birthday and wow, the food was fantastic! You can actually watch them cook your dinner in very small quarters...but the food comes out fast and is simply devine! The calamari was the best I've ever had. Highly recommend.

We will be back to Carmens!

We were not sure what to expect but the dining experience we had was awesome. The authenticity, wonderful flavors, and friendly service made Carmen's a 10! The pasta was fresh, the steaks melted in your mouths! Only thing I would change would be to serve the french bread warm. We recommend Carmen's. even sitting in the bar was a good experience!

Brookside Garozzos

It is hard to find good italian in Kansas City. If you can't get into Garozzos in Columbus park Carmen's is your next best bet. Brookside is fun - you will have to wait in the bar / kitchen - but everyone is friendly. Check out the new location on the boulevard.
