Bring your appetites to Carmines!

If you love Italian food visit Carmines with an appetite! The portions are insanely huge - they call it family style - and for a party of six, one salad, two entrees and garlic bread still left us with no room for dessert, which looked great, and plenty of pasta to snack on later in the room.

This was the first time in many years that we have had a big enough group to be able to go to Carmine's (there was 10 of us) without a doubt my favourite Italian place on the planet I just wish they did smaller portions. You will not go wrong ordering anything here

Being a full-blooded Italian, this was surprisingly delicious. We had a great time. We sat at the bar to eat and made friends with the bartender and other guests. The drinks are great and the food is enough to feed a small village. They serve family style, so consider sharing perhaps.

There are only two carmines in the world. The one here in the Bahamas and the one in NYC. The one in the bahamas thinks they can get by on reputation alone. The food is okay but not terrific. I made the insane request of "no butter no diary" and I am not entirely certain this request was respected. I... More

Carmine's is family style dining. ALL of their options serve 4-6 people. Some even serve up to 8 people. My husband and I traveled alone, so we had lots of left overs. Our waiter, Don Pedro, was MARVELOUS! He was so helpful when it came to ordering and packed up our leftovers so we could take them back to the... More

We had to book Carmines three nights in advance. The food is obviously Italian, above average and served in GIGANTIC portions. One entrée fed four of us and we had enough left over to feed two more people.

Warm salad, cold pasta, over-cooked chicken- poor service. We were a party of 12 and the waiters messed up almost everything. We made the reservation weeks before- couldn't get the time we wanted- we got a later time and had to wait almost 20 minutes for our table with our reservation.

Family style meals. We went with a large group and ordered a couple different entrees. It was very good.

Carmine's... the restaurant of plenty. If you're without a meal plan, and looking for somewhere moderately priced to feed your family, this is it! A family of four can order an appetizer, an entrée and still have leftovers to take away. We (a family of four) ordered two appetizers, two sides and two entrees and took home two bags full... More
