Small and cozy and located right in downtown, this restaurant had really good food. The side of vegetables was particularly well seasoned. The wine by the glass was good as well.

We were looking for a 'different' restaurant during our trip south and that can be daunting while traveling the US95 corridor thru the southeast states. We were pleasantly surprised to find Carmines tucked in to a quiet business street in Walterboro. Not pretentious but well above the formica table restaurant with low lighted and attractive decor. Wait staff attentive and... More

Based on the reviews we decided to try this restaurant since we were going to be in Walterboro. The food was very good. A little pricey but they delivered on taste. I think we hit an off night, at least I hope. Service was not good. Never refilled our drinks. Forgot to bring us bread. Forgot to bring a meal... More

We arrived here very close to closing time but they served us anyway. We were exhausted and hungry from many hours on the road and they took good care of us. The food was delicious and the owner and the servers were super nice and welcoming.

We visited Carmine's Trattoria on the recommendation of our B&B host and are so glad we did. Right in the center of town and an easy walk from our B&B, the food was amazing, the wine list offered many choices, and the service was superb. We eat out frequently, travel a lot, and this was one of the best meals... More

Visiting Carmine's Trattoria was truly enjoyable from the Ratpack decor to the background music. Candle light, white linens and an old wooden bar. I loved it! Service was great and the Veal Marsala was excellent. Very extensive menu with varied evening specials were offered. I highly recommend Carmine's for an Old World experience.
