I have to say we were impressed with Carmine's. We went in for lunch on a Saturday and were seated immediately. Our food served family style was pretty enormous. We were brought a very nice bread basket with about 5 different types of bread. Our...More

The food here is served family style, so it's a better value if you take more people. They don't have a "typical" alfredo sauce, but we ordered the special that was their own version. It was seriously just some spaghetti with that sauce and bacon...More

At first glance the prices seemed astronomical however the waiter explained that each dish would serve 2-3 people. He wasn't wrong! We had the special pasta. Penne in a creamy tomato sauce with chicken sausage topped with cheese. Diet what diet!? It was amazing. Glad...More

Carmine's simple and very popular concept is to serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast - which means large portions of home-style antipasti, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on large platters designed for sharing. And when we say large, we mean large. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. Located in a sprawling, former grand ballroom on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, this is the original Carmines. Designed by Peter Niemitz, the interiors evoke the images of the quintessential New York restaurant. With elements and details from the 1920s to the 1940s, the restaurant has the look and feel of a place that has been around for much longer than it's 1990 opening. If you are in the market for freshly prepared family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.
