Welcome-toCarmine's Restaurant & Bar


Trundling through the kitchen on their way to the living room, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and the other regulars at the Sunday poker game would dip bread in the sauce on the stove; they would praise Carmine Sr.’s wife and thank her for giving them a little taste of home.

Carmine Jr.

One For the Table Interview



It all started in 1972...
When Carmine Competelli Sr, opened Carmine’s, it wasn’t long before the quaint New York style Italian restaurant became a sensation in Los Angeles, CA. Carmine’s was known to be the spot for the iconic “Rat Pack”. Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin would frequent Carmine’s; the history is rich and the stories are endless. After Carmine Sr. passed away, his son Carmine began to run the restaurant with his mother in 1982. In the mid-nineties, Carmine Jr. and his partner, Kim Pappaterra reopened the restaurant in 1995 and so, the story lives on.
