Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. The Carmine's concept is to bring its guests a "wow-factor" sized portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast. Platters of homestyle antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing amongst friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's.

Great food, average service

We came to Carmines as a couple and that seemed to be an issue for the hostess, which stated they recommended their restaurant to large groups. The food was great but the service was...average. Although, average service is normal for tourist locations I suppose.

This restaurant is in the Tropicana Casino. We went here because the buffet at the hotel was very busy. I am glad we did. We ordered the Wednesday Night Special which was veal with garlic mashed potatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms and other ingredients. This was a family style restaurant which here meant that the main course was served in a... More

We ordered two family style meals for four of us and could not finish it all. Amazingly huge portions, but all very good. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially with the larger portion sizes, and I would definitely recommend with families, kids, and large groups. Food was very tasty, and presented well.

Expensive if your party isn't interested in eating the same thing - everything is served family style with the same price no matter how many portions per item. Good food, great staff, long wait - definitely make reservations.

More delicious Italian food would be hard to find! The stacked eggplant parm appetizer, ciabatta bread smothered in mozzarella, and veal Milanese were spectacular. The atmosphere is lively and fun but it is pretty loud. Not great for intimate diners, but otherwise a great place to fill your belly with Italian specialties.

We loves Carmine's restaurant. The portions are huge and family-sized, and they have an excellent and separate allergy menu! Food is delicious and cooked well, and can be ordered plain with no butter or flour or seasoning if you require. It is a bit expensive but you do get a lot of really good food. For 2 people it is...

We KNEW we were being served family style, and that we could share the dishes. Our party of 9 decided on one appetizer, one pasta dish, and one chicken dish. We were worried that we did not order enough and were considering ordering more pasta. We did not even come close to finishing the pasta. Or the chicken. And certainly... More
