Review on Yelp: Brian H. Alpine, CA

We’ve lived here a few months now and we have become regulars at Carmines. On top of that, we’ve introduced several friends and family to this local favorite when we want a place that has a consistently good menu, and a friendly “Cheers” hangout feel about it.

When it comes to the “ready to go” pizza, if they don’t have a variety made that you like, Tony and the staff do a great job of making it happen with a customized pizza of your choice.

As Don L. complained about in his review below, they “must have a lot of friends that write good reviews.” Well, they do, and for good reason! They always treat people like family and serve authentic NY style pizza at VERY fair prices. When a reviewer posts nothing but one and two star reviews for everyplace he’s reviewed except the one that gave a free meal (even they only got a four-star), I question their honesty and objectivity.

If you actually think TGI Friday’s is a four star with their overpriced, processed food and watered down drinks, go hang out with Don.
If you want good pizza made from scratch at reasonable prices, check this place out.


Review on Urbanspoon: The Dude

Went to Carmines last night for the first time. Great Pizza and great vibe. Laid back friendly atmosphere. Pizza is amazing but you have to try the salad, wings, and pasta specials as well. Finally Oceanside stepping up.

This pizza is awesome. The crust is just right, I don’t know how they do it. The pizza is tasty and smacks of fresh ingredients and quality cheese. My brother tasted some left over pizza and even he commented on how good the crust is. I’ve also had one of their special lasagna plates… tasted just right. My favorite is the ham and pinneaple with some jalapenos on it!

Plus the prices are rather reasonable given today ever increasing prices of everything. Best value for my money!

The place is large, clean and comfortable, with plenty of space to bring the kids and let them play in the arcade which is off to the side while still letting the adults enjoy converstion over a drink or the game.
