My boss had our Christmas party here and we all fell in love with this Italian treat. The decor was beautiful inside and outside and they had Christmas lights and ribbons in the outside patio. The hostess was very bubbly and sweet and seated our party of 60. We had the private elevated dining room which was great and we also had our own servers. The salads were portioned well, the stuffed mushrooms were tastey, and my Salmon was cooked to perfection with the most delicious sauce. The cocktail prices were reasonable and the service was quick and pleasant considering it was busy and we had 60 people. Oh, and don't forgot to try the Vesuvius cake! Would definitely recommend this place and will be back soon with my family!
My fiancé and I had lunch here last week. It was my second time here and his first time. Our server, Tom, was excellent and very attentive to our needs! We had the bruschetta, the fried mozzerella, and a delicious spaghetti and sundried tomato dish that I'm having trouble recalling the name of...all the food was excellent! The pasta was al dente, everything tasted fresh and was well prepared. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant. The old music and the lanterns and green curtains really make the place cozy. It was only 2pm when we went but it felt like a date! I would always recommend Carmine's to any man who wants to impress a lady!
Yes, it's an Italian restaurant chain, which supposedly is taboo for Italian food connoisseurs. But I have to hand it to Carrabba's--they consistently serve the highest quality and best tasting Italian food that I've ever had. Tasting their Pasta Weesie is like bathing in richness and flavor, and the Veal Marsala and Chicken Parmesan are to die for. Even their simple pre-meal bread dipped in olive oil and spice is fantastic. I'm salivating right now as I write this. Go there now!
