Took some friends to eat here and once again, didn't disappoint. We had spaghetti with meat balls and prima vera and was delicious - we've been impressed each time and our friends liked it so much they went back within the same week!

It's in that range. I HIGHLY recommend you go there. Carmine will delight you and the food is unsurpassed. I'm going to make another trip 150 miles from my home just to have dinner there again.
