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.

“The portions”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

OMG, the portions were huge. Our waiter, Charles (come to find out from talking with him, he is from our hometown), told us before hand that all of the portions were large this one as well. enough for 2-4 people. We ordered the night special, Chicken All Romana at Charles' recommendation. He was right about the size of the portions, as there was enough there to feed at least 3 of us. The sautéed spinach was the best my wife or I have ever had. We were able to walk in and get a table right away as we went late at night, about 15 minutes before the kitchen closed. Charles even recommended the Brooklyn Seasonal Ale and he was right on this one. We will definitely be back.

“Carmine's Belly Busters......”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Wow, what a meal - 4 of us went on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. We were told to order one dish between 4 as they are large - we ordered garlic bread, caesar salad and meat ragu penne. Lots and lots arrived, it all tasted good and we were all bloated (we did finish all of it mind!). Service was superb and the 1.5 litre of red was great value. Worth a visit and very close to the action in Times Square

“Always a great experience!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Whenever I visit NYC I go to Carmine's Midtown. Dishes are huge and reasonably priced, food is delicious and the ambiance is very pleasant. The only small criticism about last time is that we weren't told about the specials only to find out that it was spaghetti carbonara, which we LOVE and would have definitely ordered. But our penne a la vodka was amazing, nevertheless.
