A word from Carmine's - Atlantic City
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. If you are in the market for better than average family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.

    The noise level was equal to a 747 taking off This made it impossible talk.The food was mediocre at best and overpriced. My wife has a glutton allergy and they would not prepare a single portion to accommodate her. Fortunately our waiter was very nice and he ordered her a child portion of pasta which she had for dinner. We have traveled all over the world and have eaten in many wonderful accommodating restaurants. Carmines is not one of them.

    Although we had a reservation we still waiting about a half hour. The place was crazy busy, but after we were seated the service was excellent. Everything came out timely and the waitress was very personable and friendly. The food here is served family style and the portions are HUGE and the food is delicious. One salad, appetizer and entree can easily feed a party of 4. It is a great place for large gatherings.

    My wife and I went for an early dinner on Nov 13, 2014 and we were escorted to our table right on time. Carmines was dressed for Christmas and the staff greeted us with smiles and prompt service. The food was very well prepared and well scheduled. The table was a bit small so we needed to move items about to accommodate but serving sizes were large and we had leftovers. The place was quiet, well lit for a romantic dinner. A very nice dinner.

    Carmine's is a great restaurant for a group of people, not so much for just 2 people. The amount of food they give you is more than plentiful!!! My husband and I recently went to Carmine's in AC. It was our first experience at any Carmine's. We ordered stuffed artichoke and the special pasta of the night which was penne with fresh mozzarella and eggplant in a pomadoro sauce. The food was excellent. We were served two very large stuffed artichokes (this is only one portion, not doubled for 2) and at least a pound of penne, again this is only one portion. We were informed that the penne would serve 2-4 people, but my God, you have to have some appetite to finish this pasta, even if you had 4 people. I would highly recommend this restaurant for group.

    As usual the food was very good and plentiful at Carmines. Atmosphere was lively and very loud, which we did not have a problem with. Only complaint was that we ordered a special that, of course, was not shown on the menu board. We expected it to be higher in price than the the other entrees, since it was a beef dish. When explaining the specials the waiter did not include the price with his description. When we received our bill, the beef special was actually triple the price of all the other entrees on the board. The waiter has to give a heads-up if the price is not even in the same ballpark as the others. Not saying the dish wasn't worth the price, and it was partly our fault for not asking, but still should get a heads-up.

Highly recommended in every way...perfect for both couples and groups whereas everything is served in the traditional Italian family style.

    Went to celebrate my sons 40th birthday with a small group of 8. We were sat at a round table near an open window so you got the best of two worlds (Indoor and out door dining). The service was great and the food exceptional great presentation of the "tug boat" desert with a chorus of happy birthday by the waitress/waiter staff. Made for a great end to a perfect birthday celebration.

    Carmine's is one of our favorite places to dine in ac the food is always fresh and delicious. I did feel that the liquor (glass of house wine) was a bit pricey but our overall experience was very good . A good idea is to go with more than 2 people due to the large portions sharing is the way to go when you dine at Carmine's

    We have been long time patrons of the original Carmine's on the upper west side of NYC. The AC version is just as good. Our visit was perfect from start to finish. We made "Open Table" reservations for 7:30 pm on Saturday we were seated exactly at 7:30. Our server Gabi was excellent. Food came out quickly but we had no feeling of being rushed. We kept it simple ..tomato and mozzarella salad for openers and broccoli rabe over pene as our main dish and the best cheese cake ever for desert. Portions are so large we had leftovers for another meal the next day. We have been to many eateries in AC I would definitely put Carmine's at the top of the list of go to places.

    We went there for Halloweeen dinner and the restaurant was very crowded. We've eaten there several times before. The stuffed artichokes were overstuffed with breadcrumbs, so I felt like I was eaten a package of breadcrumbs on top of the artichokes which could have used more liquid. The chicken parmesan was o.k. but lacked flavor. I would eat here again because of past experiences, but was disappointed this time.
