What a beautiful experience. The food was delicious. I order the spaghetti dinner. The meatballs were perfectly cooked. They give you a great portion of salad with delicious toppings. I will stop by again if I'm back in town!

It's in that range. I HIGHLY recommend you go there. Carmine will delight you and the food is unsurpassed. I'm going to make another trip 150 miles from my home just to have dinner there again.
