My senior class and I came to Carmine’s for dinner and were very disappointed. The salad was soggy and flavorless, the garlic bread - hard as a rock, and our waitress was not accommodating at all. She refused to give us clean plates after our...More

The food was good, not great. The portions are huge ( and salty) . Our waiter was distracted and rushed us through the entire meal, although he did recommend a great wine. As we tried to enjoy an intimate dinner, two large busses of noisy...More

Carmine’s is good Italian food. We got the chicken Parm over penne with a salad to start. Could have probably fed 4 people (we were only 2). Staff was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Everything was just like the one in NYC.

Went there for a friends birthday and we had a room - the salad, calamari (exceptional), pasta, meatballs(!) and dessert were all very good, family-style portions huge, and the attentive staff and bartender were accommodating. Had a great time. Big fan of the Chianti, too.

Great experience with fabulously authentic Italian cuisine! My wife and I split the lasagne which was truly large enough to serve 4! Enjoyed the fabulous NY-style cheesecake which again, was enough for 4 to share. Delicious!

Delicious food, very good service and nice setting but noisy and made it difficult to conduct our meeting. However we enjoyed the meal, the atmosphere and the attentive staff. The calamari was just right, eggplant parmigiana was a bit overdone but the spaghetti and meatballs...More

We weren’t sure what to expect. The olive oil was fantastic, to start with, if that gives you an indication. Servings are huge so best to share or order a lunch portion.

I took my daughters to Carmine’s for a Friday 5:30 pm dinner. I had made reservations two days prior and we arrived on time. We were sat at a table inside a small private room with only 4 tables; away from everyone. It would have...More

We didn’t order shrimp. We had just old fashioned spaghetti & meatballs. But it was out-of-this-world amazing!! So jump in with both feet & get that scampi!

The only menu I can remember is actually duplicated as a large billboard and posted in at least 4 locations throughout the restaurant. The portions are considered: “family style” and are meant to be shared. I hope you... More
