My family and I visited Carmine's just before we were heading to the theatre across the road. We had heard of the restaurant's reputation but had never visited before. We were not disappointed and, indeed, were very impressed. It's 'no frills' but we enjoyed the friendly, cosy atmosphere and the food we ordered was excellent, with a real 'home-made' taste....

If you want somewhere that serves good unpretentious Italian food the this is the place to go, and much cheaper than most other places in Aberdeen.

Had a lunch for two at Carmines last weekend while out shopping. Had been to Carmines many times before but not for a few months. As soon as we walked in we were welcomed like old friends and shown to our table. Service was very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and the garlic bread the best we have... More

This is the most rustic and realistically Italian restaurant that I have visited in not only Aberdeen but also Scotland. This is a no frills, fantastic value restaurant with friendly staff and delicious food. I'll certainly be back.

Carmine's is one of the best Italian restaurants in Aberdeen and the surrounding area. You can keep all of your fancy £100 meals for absolutely nothing. For one of the best eating experiences carmine's is the place to be. If you prefer good food other than a fancy atmosphere carmine's is the place for you. 🍕

Aberdeen is a culinary wilderness with very few restaurants that I would recommend. The best is the Silver Darling and the Chester Hotel Restaurant. I am told cafe Boheme is also good but I have never been. I have eaten at many top restaurants during the last two years including Noma, Geranium, La Gavroche, Manoir de Quatre Seasons, Andrew Fairlie... More
