Meraviglioso! Carmine’s is back open

A positive sign of the District’s post-COVID recovery is today’s reopening of Carmine’s. The family-style Italian eatery in Penn Quarter is the city’s largest restaurant, with 20,000 square-feet of dining space including eight private dining rooms that are perfect for now hosting all the celebrations that were either missed or held virtually during the pandemic.

Closed since March 2020, as it scales back up its service, Carmine’s is temporarily operating with a slightly reduced selection of menu items and modified hours: Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 9 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sundays, 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m..

What Carmine’s has not changed is its big, bold platters of devious Southern Italian cuisine — including some of the best meatballs you find in the DMV.

Dining reservations for Carmine’s can be made online or by calling (202) 737-7770.
