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.

'nuf said. oh...and the food's great too. make a reservation as far in advance as possible because wait times for walk-ins can be long. food is served family-style so be prepared.

“Delicious food but a LOT OF IT!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

The food is so good but it serves about 6!! It was just me, my daughter-in-law and granddaughter so there was no way we could eat all this food!! We boxed it up and gave it to a homeless man on the street!! If you don't want to go that route and you don't like to waste food don't go to Carmine's unless there is at least 4 hungry adults!! On the other hand the lemon drop martini was to die for!!

“Huge delicious portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We visited Carmine's over three weeks ago now and still rave to our friends about the wonderful meal we had there. It was the best meal we had during our one week in NYC. The portion sizes are simply huge, one serve of anything you order will feed up to three people. We had to wait about thirty minutes to be seated as we did not book ahead, but our wait was well worth it as the food was absolutely delicious.

“The Best Clam Linguine I've ever had....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I was told by a local to try this place. I went to the location off of Times Square. The clam linguine was amazing!!! so much flavor and not watered down sauce, the clam chunks were huge, and the pasta was cooked perfectly. The bread basket came with a variety of fresh bread and foccacia. The service was friendly and quick and I had more than enough for dinner later that night. I highly recommend this place. All their dishes are served family style,,,one dish can feed 4 to 5 people.
