For nearly twenty years, Carmine's on Penn Italian Restaurant has been stuffing Denver with its heaping bowls of gourmet pasta. Though Carmine's pricing is often as bloated as its patrons' bellies -- largely due to serving sizes that are injurious for a single person to consume -- the restaurant jas always focused on high-quality, often locally sourced ingredients.

The spaghetti & meatballs sandwich even includes noodles.
