    New Italian restaurant is called Carmines

    I have eaten there on a number of ocassions. All pasta dishes have the highest quality ingredients and certainly a huge step above anything else around. The thin crust pizza I also enjoyed. I agree that they need to iron out some issues mostly in respect to the kitchen relative to timing. However, when you get make sure you talk to Carmine and tell him you would like your main dished served at the same time and chances are pretty good they will be. Another issue is there is a lack of training for the servers. Nevertheless these are easy to deal with. Nice courtyard in the back

    Carmine Restorante

    Carmine Restorante

    That's the name of the new Italian Restaurant.
    We ate there last week and the food was good!
    The interiors of the restaurant just doesn't do justice to the food served and needs to be updated. It was a little pricey too...for a group of 8 we paid around p5700, which i think was quite expensive for Dumaguete.

    We tried the Pasta Vongele, the rolled up beef stuffed with ham, pizza, seafood pasta, salad and risoto.. everything was delicious except the risoto, i didnt like it that much.

    Hope this helps when you try it out.:smile:

    Carmines

    Interesting about what you mentioned about the food prices. I mean you are talking about 700 peso per person and you are right that is high in relationship to what most people spend on a meal at the usuual establishments like Why Not, Coco's, etc.... I assume if you had a salad and followed that with a main course, dessert and a drink or two you can get to that much. I seem to remember a family size Really Gourmet pizza was 280 which is much less than the Shakeys equivilent size at around 450. The pasta's were all abut 150 and main courses 300 to 400. Seemed to be in line with any good quality restaurant. When I go to Cebu I eat at the Gustavian and Giuseppes and a couple of other restaurants on the same street. They are all foreign owned and prepare gourmet style food and frankly I consider if you come out of there at 700 per person you are getting a bargain for what you get. Back home in the states even at a cheesecake factory it would be twice as much money for the same thing. In defense of place like carmines Keep in mind, many of the ingredients/products are imported here.

    You're right. On second thought it is priced reasonably, considering that the food was really good, servings were big and ingredients were as the chef said "authentic".. I don't mind paying as long as the food is good! And in this case it is! Bon Appetit! :smile:
