Nice lunch place for Italian food. Very good large sandwiches with yummy bread. Good portions for all the dishes that you order. If you are lucky, you can find street parking in front.

Carmine's serves authentic Italian food like pizza, pasta and Italian sandwiches. I have tried their sandwiches and they were just excellent. Their prosciutto is imported from Italy and really tasty. Parking can be difficult but it is worth coming here for their sandwiches.

You feel the warmth the second you walk through the door. The place has a history and a spirit of classic Sinatra - New York style. Carmine and Kim are a magic combination. The food is outstanding and the service is friendly and fast. If

I have had way better Italian food than Carmine's. Very authentic Italian feel to the inside of the place and maybe was popular at one point but the food was just ok. The service was good and the so was the wine. Reasonably priced but would recommend another Italian place if you want really good Italian food.

This is a very good westside Italian restaurant. Fresh food, generous portions. The staff is extremely attentive. Romantic, but can be noisy when there is live entertainment.

I found this place on the web. My first visit I was greeted by the owner with a hug as if we were friends our whole life. The gnocchi is homemade and piping hot and delicious. A tad expensive, but I don't mind for good food and good

Upon arrival at Carmine's we were promptly seated at our reserved time in a full house so there was no trouble there.

Crowded is a little understated, more liked packed. It's definitely not the place to take a date because of the ear

I've been going to Carmine's II ever since it opened, as my office is only a block and a half away. The food is excellent. Service very good. The only caveat I have is that it's so crowded in the evenings that you have to SHOUT to be heard

Pros: Food, Service, Ambience

Wonderful and unique restaurant in the heart of Los Angeles. A perfect spot for a romantic dinner and a great selection of wines. The ambiance was totally charming and relaxing at the same time. There is a small jazz band for the eager ears and equally enjoyable music during intermission. Even if you're not up for dinner, the bar is a great place to end the evening or start the night. A must try, I will definetly be back.
