About Carmine's Ristorante & Pizzeria
After a restaurant-inspired trip to tour Italy’s culinary scene, childhood friends Darius Robustelli and John Runge—who both logged many hours growing up in Darius’s father’s eateries—opened up Carmine's Ristorante & Pizzeria. The establishment has an old school air with a warmly colored dining room and black-and-white checkered tablecloths. It prides itself, however, on its forward-looking eco-friendly flair, demonstrated by the green wares it stocks, such as incandescent light bulbs, 100% compostable takeout containers, and a human wait staff that runs on compliments instead of petroleum. Tomatoes imported from near Mount Vesuvius find themselves melded into many of the pasta dishes and house-made pizzas, which can be enjoyed indoors or alfresco on the patio, which complements fresh meals with fresh air.
