Carmine's Cafe






Carmine arrived in Ocala from Palermon in Sicily a little over five years ago and started his own restaurant, called, naturally, Carmine's Cafe. It specializes in Italian cuisine, also naturally, and we would definitely give it a thumbs up.

Carmine's Cafe is located in a nondescript little strip mall but what it lacks on the outside is more than made up for on the inside.  What makes this such a great place is that Carmine himself is there to ensure that his patrons receive the best in food and wine and the best in service!

You can find out more about Carmines on their website here. Back in 2009, we did a similar post on Carmine's which you can view here.

Hi Lowell, I checked out the website and it is nice and easy to navigate. Love your photos here. Carmine seems to be a fine gentleman and his restaurant is gorgeous! I love the ambiance and decor. It is very attractive and warm.

Carmine's sounds like a great place to eat. Very inviting too.

Here is a riddle for you. but I bet you know the answer. Testing!

This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!

Cordiali saluti, Carmine!

I like a restaurant where the owner is there and cares enough to serve something tasty.

WOW! Getting a thumbs up from Lowell is pretty nifty!!

You'd never guess the interior was so lovely and welcoming form the exterior. What a great find! I really like your photos of him. You've captured the warmth of spirit. And you've made me hungry for gelato...thanks a lot. ;-)

The answer to the little riddle:
The letter "e" which is the most common letter used in the English language, does not appear even once in the paragraph.

Want another one?? No? Ok. MB
