First things first: This Carmine's is not affiliated with the other similarly named establishments in town, something regulars are quick to point out. Loyalty runs deep here and offense is taken at anything that might besmirch the 30-plus year history of this North Dallas stalwart. Carmine's specializes in New York City-style pizza, and the classic pepperoni is the clear favorite. The three-cheese calzone (ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan) is also popular. For good measure, several noodle dishes are available for those interested in something more substantial than a slice of pizza. Carmine's success might be built on the backs of local office and retail workers, but the restaurant staff points out that regulars who have long since moved from town return for a hot slice when visiting Dallas.
