Carmine's - 44th Street - NYC
Platters of made to order antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing among 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!
It was very good for our business meal
It's the next restaurante in NYC, with the best ratio quality-price
Very tasty food, one serving 4 people. we love it!
It is worth a visit however I'm not a big fan of the "sharing plates"
Wonderful shrimp white pasta. I hardly recommend.
Way overpriced for cheapskate food!!! Rude staff that don’t even make eye contact. And dirty glasses...
Delicious food and great service!
Waitress overcharged my credit card.
Good family place, definitely not for couples. Food was good, but not as great as it used to be!
Huge portions which make the price very worthwhile
On Sunday, February 23rd, 2020, I brought and treated my wife and myself for dinner at the wonderful Carmine’s Italian restaurant to celebrate our Happy Two Year Wedding Anniversary!!!
Our meals was superb and delicious and we received great service while dining at Carmine’s.
The Carmine’s Italian Restaurant paid a huge role in making sure that our Happy Two Year Wedding Anniversary was an absolutely outstanding experience!!!
The food as always was great! Service was very friendly but extremely sporadic. We had to flag down our waitress if we wanted anything outside of our ordered food (i.e more water for the table, extras cheese, etc.)
Atmosphere feels extremely rushed, with tight spaces and loud volumes. I think someone ran into my chair (I was at the end of the table) about 20 times. We did not feel comfortable sitting long after the meal, as we were rushed out the door, but it is clear they need to seat a lot of tables each night. It took us at least 5 minutes to even get in the door to the hostess stand to check in.
Don’t come here for a relaxing meal, but do come if you want quality, family style food and yummy leftovers!
We were unanimous in our praise for all aspects of our dining experience. We are already planning on returning with a considerably larger group. I only regret not having dined at Carmine's much sooner.
Food is fantastic. Be warned that portions are large.
Nice place, good service, lots of food, too expensive. Good for one time experience.
Delicious as always
This is my favorite restaurant in all of NYC. Great location, great atmosphere, great service and great food. You can't go wrong.
This has become one of my favourite places to dine in New York! The food is delicious, all the pastas and dishes are made fresh. The concept is family style sharing and the portion sizes are huge, so make sure you order accordingly. The ambiance is great and the restaurant has an old world charm that makes you feel as if Frank Sinatra is going to walk through the doors at any given moment. They also have great cocktails as well.
Delicious food and good service. Big portion size. Best for a relaxed meal with friends and family.
Best tiramisu ever !!!! Price and porcions are really convenients
Huge portions, beautiful food and atmosphere
The overall experience was good. It did feel a bit rushed so we weren’t able to fully enjoy the meal but the food was delicious. Portions are large so plan to share and still have leftovers
Amazing restaurant! Thank you for making our day special.
Everything was amazing. Food was delicious and great service
Great food, great atmosphere. Would highly recommend for delicious Italian cuisine!
Chicken parm was excellent. The dishes are served family style so take a group and enjoy 3-4 wonderful dishes. The desert “the titanic” is an unbelievable site and a challenge for 6 people to eat!
One of our favorite restaurants in NYC
Had 5:30 PM reservation. Was not seated until 6:05 PM. You are sent to a corner of the room to stand with 50 other people waiting for a table. It was hot and crowded in the wait area (part of which is used for dining so you are inches from diners trying to eat.) Food was good but not worth the long wait time.
Great food. Plenty of food. Love this restaurant. Always consistent. I just wish they would offer half portions for couples.
The soap dispenser was not working in the ladies room
Great food! Friendly waitstaff and host staff!
Portions are too large for 2 people. 1/2 platters should be made available.
Not everyone can bring leftovers with them...
I go to Carmine’s a couple of times a year when I meet my high school friends for our annual Broadway show and amazing meal at Carmine’s. We are never disappointed! Everything from the bread to the appetizers and the delicious main dishes are absolutely phenomenal. Service is always great and the ambience is wonderful. The last time we went we had the most amazing pitcher of sangria. Our waiter dressed up every single glass with fruit and it was absolutely delicious and topped off the entire meal! If you’re in New York City, do not miss going to Carmine’s!
Friends came fron out of town, huge portions, very tasty, nice wine selection and great value. Will return definitely.
Very disappointing experience, we arrived at 11pm and checked in and they told us to wait at the bar. Which was completely ok since our reservations were at 11:30pm. However, it was 11:34pm and still waiting. We went to check on the status of our reservation and it appears they forgot about us. No apology from the host only from our waiter, he was nice and apologetic. I don’t plan on ever returning or recommending this restaurant.
Our server was amazing. The food was great. I bit expensive, tough, but we got what we paid for,
Good location but crowded and had over priced specials!
Great food. You must try their meatballs. Always visit Carmine’s when i’m in New york
Always worth the trip! It was great to be back, and we'll look forward to next time!
When we arrived, the table had been reserved - which was just as well, as the place was really busy (it was a Friday night). We saw a couple of orders going past and were blown away at the size of the dishes & portions. The waitress was extremely helpful and made sure we knew the best way to order. The place was quite noisy but it all added to the atmosphere. No need for starters and probably best to share a main course .... and a dessert, if you could manage a dessert! Good food and great service. I'd definitely recommend to others.
