There portions are huge and meant to be shared!! If you don’t plan on boxing anything, order one or two entrees and share!! Food is excellent though!!

Two of us dined and the portions were way too large - could have fed 4-6 each. And that is from an adult and a teenage boy. It is also very noisy. Service was good but not super knowledgable. The food was delicious.

This Italian restaurant gives the feeling of being in an old roaring 1920’s restaurant. There are a lot of old black and white photos adorning the walls and a lot of crown molding with antique motif. The best part of this restaurant is the size...More

You can't go wrong with family style Italian if you are with a large group. The food and service were both excellent. It was a great dining experience.

We called ahead and got lucky with a quick seat before the dinner rush! We truly enjoyed the family sized dishes served family style. We got the sausage with angel hair and the chicken parm. Plenty to feed 6!

We stopped by with no reservations and was lucky to score a high top table in the bar area. These tables are not reserved but are available on a first come first serve basis. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice. For our family...More

As a first time visitor, I expected much more! I walked in and eventually someone (reluctantly) helped me find a seat. Then no one came to wait on me, so I left. I was looking forward to good food, and a friendly Italian atmosphere. I'm...More

We stopped in for lunch and both order sandwiches, they were huge. When you first look at the prices on the menu, you think it pretty high until you see the portions, they are all quiet large. Our server was very nice and always on...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.
