Amazing lunch here- recommended by the concierge at the Park Hyatt. The breaded eggplant caprese stack (wasn't called that) was one of the most amazing culinary treats of my life.

Have had dinner at Carmine's several times with anywhere from one other person to a group of maybe ten. The food and service is always excellent. Carmine usually stops by the table to say hello. As in the title, Carmine's is just a fun place for dinner and may be my favorite restaurant in the Tri Cities.

Food is served family style. All in a blow or dish and you dish out what you want. I have had the Baked Ziti and it was excellent. Carmine comes around and makes sure you are happy with the food and service. He will also answer questions and talk about his days as a boxer.

If you are anywhere near Kennewick or the surrounding area, you must go experience this for yourself. My husband and I live three hours away. We were looking for a little weekend getaway... More

Great food, fresh salad, yummy bread! Family style so check their menu online to see what they are serving. Best to make a reservation, especially for busy weekend nights. Locally owned and managed by owners.
