This place is set in the most unlikely of places and has the ambience of a place that feels like you want to write a song or create a poem. Seriously, the food is all tenderly prepared by Carmen, the hostess is his gracious and lovely wife, and the waiters are "familia" in the sense that they know what to tell you and will go ask questions if you have any that they cannot answer. We genuinely enjoy the feeling that we are welcome and remembered. The food is excellent, the wine selections within reason, and the desserts and coffee are great! You can be in a pizza mood or a fine dining mood and this inviting place will accomodate you. Dress is casual and folks come back and keep coming back. Sometimes you want to dress up and sometimes you don't. You are welcome here in a way that makes you feel special in a time in our lives and our economy that doesn't treat you so well. Need to feel safe, secure, well fed and happy? Drop in. We do whenever we can. Kaysie McAlister

I have dined at Carmens about 7 or 8 times always got a excellent meal, several nights ago i took friends there for a special night out. We were told the specials,maybe it was our fault we did not ask the price, but should of been told when waitress was telling us what they were. First one entree sauce tasted burnt, which surprised me it was always great when I got it, second pasta with a little lobster in it should not of cost $45.00,,( one of the specials). Only 2 out of the 6 of us were ok with our meal. i was very disappointed, but I will try it again,seeing it might of been an off night, to bad it had to be on a night I brought guest< but it won,t be a $230.00 night again.
Love this place!!! The closest thing to my all time favorite Marions Pizza in Dayton, Ohio. They are a great bunch of people who go out of their way to make sure your pizza is fixed the way you like it. And I don't just like it --I love it!!!!! My first time there I had my family in from out of town and it was quite late and they were closing up but they let our gang in and I couldn't believe they would keep the place open just for us. My family loved the place and we always go there for their vegetarian pizza thin crust, easy on the sause and crispy. My mouth is watering just thinking of it.!!!!! To me it is a 5 star place +++.
Great Italian food at good prices. When you walk in the door it's like you're an old friend even if it's the first time you're there. Everything from the homemade salad dressings to the entrees are very well done and delicious. I recommend the chicken marsala, the italian sausage with pasta and the spaghetti with meat sauce that has a bit of cream in it. Roz the waitress is a real asset to the place as she is welcoming and knowledgeable and helped us put together a great dinner for all of us. I wish I lived closer by to go more often!
You must have have been there at a very busy time. Favs has a lot of take out orders and its hard to tell when they are busy. Sometime the service is slow but the food is the best Italian I have had. The owner Mark uses his family receipt from Italy and its always wonderful food. Please try again.
I ate dinner here last night & couldn't have been happier! The waitress (Jaimie ?) was exceptional, the recommendations she made were wonderful and the chicken fettuccine Alfredo was the best I've had! I will certainly return.
From the outside it looks like a casual pizza place but inside it is quite charming with friendly staff and outstanding food. Enjoyed the martini bar after dinner with small band playing. Very enjoyable evening.
Great American pizza. This store is most of time really packed. Servers are fast and efficient. Unfortunately no Tuna for pizza. Tuna and onions is my favorite combination (it is very common in italy)
I have enjoyed eating at the Cortez Road M.O. and want everyone to know they now have another one in the Cooper Creek Shopping Center! It is at University and Rt.75 in Bradenton. You'll love it!
Love all the food ! And grate service ... We eat their at least 3 times a month . Michael Bond If you love pizza you have to get the XX Large with extra cheese and garlic crust ...
