What They’re Saying

”Wow!” This was our first visit to Carmen’s in Brookside, it certainly won’t be our last. It’s a quaint little place, and the wait staff were wonderful. We never had to ask for a thing. The salads were delicious and fresh and the entrees were just outstanding. We could not stop commenting on how wonderful everything was. And talk about bang for the buck!!! Pricing was more than reasonable for what we ordered. If you are in the mood for amazing Italian food, you have to give Carmen’s a try.Cathy
