Meals are family style. If you order a meat entree you may want to order a pasta entree as well. The chicken parmigiana was amazing!!

Wanted to get away from downtown Denver and took a local's suggestion. A quick Uber ride and we landed at Carmine's. Don't bother with a menu- tell your server what you like and you'll get great suggestions. I'm a vegetarian so always ask lots of...More

I'm the guy who always asks "what do you have that I can't get anywhere else?". In this case it paid off big time! I love Carmine's on Penn, their spaghetti, their meatballs, their ambience. But they're only open for dinner. Not anymore! They opened...More

Description
Carmine's was opened in 1994. Shannon purchased Carmine's in August of 2005 and was joined by operating partner Brad in 2006. Together, they have given Carmine's a facelift featuring artwork by local artist Kerry Kice who adorned our old building's interior with murals and artistic paint touches. We have both been fans of Carmine's since the beginning so our changes are modest as we seek to keep the real flavor that has been so popular. Thank you for your support today and through our history.
