Westword's Description

Carmine's on Penn has held down its corner of Pennsylvania and Bayaud since 1994. When the restaurant opened, it was intended as a place where big groups could converge and enjoy themselves without thinking too much about what they were eating -- ordering big platters of Italian food served family-style. Parties still come for that experience, filling the bar, the dining room, and a patio that's sealed against the elements by heavy canvas. And quantity continues to rule over quality: The kitchen remains devoted to the idea of putting out a roster of enormous dishes, cooking up red-sauce Italian classics and such accoutrements as minestrone. Be careful when you order: The portions are so large that it's easy to overload on this food, and many of the recommended dishes do not come cheap.

    Some people rail on Carmines and I don't konw why. There is no better Italian in Denver. I love the red snapper. Don't fill up on the garlic bread! Go to The Spot afterwards for a cold beer.

    Simple, straightforward Italian fare. Platters are enough to feed two people. Try the Pasta alla Carmine, pasta with tomatoes, basil, capers and marinara sauce. Platters $23.95-$44.95. “More Info" for

    Rather than trying to study the menu, tell your server what kind of things you like and let the server order for you. I've been doing this for 10 years and haven't been disappointed a single time.

    Chicken Montana is a must! Serves five easily!
