THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Carmine's Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: Carmine’s is an old-school neighborhood Italian with a loyal following and homey vibe. Locals begin with fried calamari, zucchini or mozzarella before tucking into standards like chicken Parmigiana, lasagna or manicotti. Pizzas are also offered, while scampi and osso buco represent more upscale options, paired with craft beers and a limited selection of California and Italian wines. Desserts include spumoni and cheesecake. A lively scene takes over the adjoining lounge on weekends. Also located at 311 E. Live Oak Ave., Arcadia, 626-445-4726.
