Carmine's Italian restaurant back from ashes on Transit

Destroyed by fire in 2015 while its food was winning an award at Taste of Buffalo, Carmine's is coming back from the ashes.

The family Italian restaurant has a new location and has announced its grand reopening for Oct. 19 at its new location: 9430 Transit Road, East Amherst.

"I am excited to announce that Carmine’s is finally reopening after our tragic fire in July of 2015," Kelly Jacobbi said in her announcement.

The Carmine's struck by fire, at 4715 Transit Road, began as a supper club called The Charlesgate. In 1992, Michael Jacobbi opened it as Carmine's. After the 2015 fire, he opened Giacobbi's Cucina Citta, 59 Allen St.
