Description: 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.

“Fun Place; Wonderful Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We have been to two Carmine's - the one in NYC and the one in Atlantic City and they are exactly the same. There is another one in Miami and perhaps we will go to that one someday. According to the bartender, management is considering opening a Carmine's in Las Vegas and, if this is so, we will defintely find an excuse to go to that one too! The atmosphere is that of a restaurant and bar of the 1940's - a unique and enjoyable atmosphere. They serve wine in straight-up glasses - I guess the way it was served in the 40's. Food is served family style and it is best to bring friends or family with you because the portions are huge - and delicious. My wife and I ordered Ragu which was a hefty portiion that we could not possibly finish. On another occasion we had lunch at the bar and ordered a veal parm sandwich which came with a salad. We split the sandwich which was plenty for the both of us. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable. If you plan to go to Atlantic City, Carmine's is a must stop.

“Great Italian food and lots of it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Four of us visited Carmine's at the Tropicana before a comedy show. Reading about their portions beforehand, we knew not to over order. We had the meatball side order (6 very LARGE balls) which were one of the best I've ever tasted. Next came the lasagna and veal saltimbucco entrees. Veal was good, lasagna just okay. We still had leftovers to pack up. Meal came to $170 with tip, quite a value in an AC Casino ! I would def return but with at least 6 people so we can try other food to share. All is served family style which I do love!

“YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are a guest at the Tropicana, do yourself a favor and enjoy a wonderful family style meal here. Everything our party of four ordered was superb! The wait staff is quite helpful and very friendly. Great atmosphere, several levels for seating, the place is larger than it looks! You won't be disappointed. There are Carmine's in NYC and at the Atlantis Hotel. Enjoy!

“Great portions..great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

The portions size for a sub is so large you can split it between 2 people and still not eat it all. We ordered a meatball sub which comes with a salad and split it..it was more then enough and cheap! Food was delicious, our bartender was friendly ad attentive! Great visit once again! Carmine's is a must when visiting AC!
