Haven't been here in quite sometime. Thought we'd give it a try starting with happy hour then dinner. The Italian restaurants we enjoy have friendly and welcoming bartenders, servers who enjoy what they do and like being there, serve impressive portion sizes and quality food with an Italian FOOD aroma throughout the restaurant which makes you even hungrier and friendlier...

I currently live in Colorado, but every time I am back in Woodbury, Carmine's is a must have! Chicken Marsala is one of my favorite dishes and the Marsala at Carmines is second to none! Besides the Marsala, the service is fantastic along with a great bar staff! The owners are always walking around making sure everyone is comfortable and... More

Great bar! Good service! Friendly staff! Bad food! Caesar salad dressing is the worst! Meatballs are so tough, you need a knife. Spaghetti sauce is really bland. I think we have given them the last chance. Not going back!

Excellent service and food is very good overall. They have specials on Monday and Tuesday evenings. Cannot beat the price and value. The patio is fantastic! We are there at least once a week either by ourselves or with friends and family.

I had the Pasta Alfredo with Shrimp. Scrumptious(although I am not a fan of the broccoli they add, not a broccoli fan period). Perfect amount of pasta sauce (many places don't have enough).

The place has a great, cozy atmosphere and the waiter was great! I had baked penne. I absolutely LOVE cheese, but this dish was all cheese-I could barely find any noodles under the cheese topping. I also think the sauce tasted like Chef Boyardee. My husband liked the spaghetti & meatballs.

My partner and I go out for dinner or drinks at least 3 to 4 times per any given week. When we moved to this area about a year ago we were very excited to give this new place a try. Our first or second visit there we met the owners. They are absolutely wonderful people. But the staff and... More

Best Bolognese in town..& the Chicken Marsala...fuhgetaboutit!! Service is excellent. Jimmy comes right out of the kitchen & visits his patrons to make sure they are pleased with their food. The owner also takes interest in his guest enjoyment & comfort. Feels like being back in NYC for this foodie! If this place doesn't please your need for good Italian.....you... More

The bar is a great place for watching the game/fight/match or whatever sporting event you want to see. The bar staff is friendly, and they have a pretty good selection of beer on tap. If you are like me and head to the bar in the evening, they have great bar specials after 9pm. While we have not sat outside... More
