“If you love Italian, this place won't disappoint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

If you love Italian food, Carmine's will not disappoint. We were there Tuesday April 29th, for dinner before heading to the theatre. Carmine's was recommended to me at Foxwoods theatre, while waiting to see the show I was chatting it up with a native New Yorker, who insisted we try Carmine's, we've been back everytime we visit NYC, this was the first time I've been in NY with my family, and my husband loves Italian food. We all left satisfied, from the food ( portion sizes are served family style, and are ridiculously huge) the service is top notch, the atmosphere is great. One visit to this restaurant and you will understand why it is always as busy as it is. I would normally not recommend anyone eating in Times Square , but Carmine's is for sure the exception to that rule!

“Very good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

We went there on a Friday night without a reservation, we were told that our table was going to be ready in within 45 min. We went do some other things and came back 15 minutes late, so we needed to wait 15 more min! So we did, the food was wonderful, the "Ravioli with cheese" was amazing! The price is intermediate, but worth it, be careful, they just manage huge portions, they told us a saad could feed 6 people, carefull!

“Go there for New York vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Went here as part of honeymoon trip in April. It was recommended from a friend who had been to New York previously. Yes it is off Times Square so there is a large footfall of tourists. However, we loved it! There was a nice New York vibe and staff friendly and chatty letting us know about cocktails and dishes. We had to wait 40 mins for a table which was fine by us as we arrived at 8:00pm and it allowed us the chance to sit and soak up the vibe. Definitely worth a trip.

“Perfect place to celebrate a special occasion !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Easter Sunday- we had a reservation for 5- we arrived about 30 minutes early, but the hostess cheerfully assured us that our table would be ready shortly. ( We were seated within 15 minutes :).

Our waitstaff was very attentive and we had a lovely dinner with plenty of food.

Very reasonably priced for the amount of food you get .
