At first we thought wow it's pricey! But then we realized it's family style and you're meant to share the meal. Delicious vodka cream sauce! We will definitely be back.

For the people: I loved this place, although the portions weren't as Flintstone-sized big as I'd imagined. I could have ordered more. Street parking is free after 6:30 M-F on the other block. For the restaurant: TRAIN AND SUPERVISE YOUR STAFF! Our waitress didn't remember...More

This is a very large facility. I expect they can accommodate groups, as long as you call ahead.

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.
