About Carmen's

A “celebration” of the best Italian food and Latin small plates in Kansas City

Carmen’s offers the ideal private dining space for your special gatherings and professional catering tailored to your event needs and tastes. From a romantic meal with a loved one to an intimate toast with a gathering of family and friends, to important business functions and presentations, Carmen’s offers a comfortable setting, unmatched service, and delicious and unique cuisine that will make your dining experience complete.
