Carmine's on Penn

Updated 10/01/2013

Fodor's Review

It's hard to pick out this house from the ones that surround it in this cozy neighborhood, but the steady crowds streaming in and out of its art-lined dining rooms are a sure sign that this isn't a private residence. They come for the family-style servings—entrée prices are for four-serving portions—of outstanding Italian fare. Tomatoes, garlic, basil, and good-quality olive oil make up the base of many of the meals, and the sauces are good: puttanesca, Bolognese,

carbonara. The menu is written out on chalkboards, and there's a private back room for big groups.

Yummy for More than 4

Awesome service! Yummy garlic rolls! Great Wine! The servers help you select items based off your wants and don't suggest the highest price items or try to get you to over order. Funny, relaxed place with a hint of upscale dining!

Great locals spot, be prepared for lots of garlic!

We've gone to Carmine's for over 12 years, prices were raised significantly a few years back so it's not the value it once was. Only order 1 pasta dish if you must or you'll end up with many pounds of noodles with not much meat. In general, you won't get much shrimp or meat.
