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.Continued

I had Chicken with Lemon and Butter over Angel Hair with spinach which was enough for 2-3 people and it tasted excellent. We shared a Shrimp Cocktail appetizer which was six jumbo Shrimp very, very fresh."

  • "This is a great place to go with a group, we were only 2 people, and wound up with a lot of wasted food."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "abundance of food goes without saying if you have been to Carmine's before. They actually let you know that the portions are big and enough for 2+. Very honest of them. The old world taste of the sunday gravy (that's what Italians call it) was very good and is like my own. A real freshness to the gravy. The rigatoni was done "al dente" which I enjoy when I am out instead of limp pasta. The meatballs, sausage and bracciole were delicious and a good quality of meats and ingredients. We had the raw clams as an appetizer and they were as clean and fresh as can be. Unfortunately we did not leave room for dessert. Maybe next time. Our reservation was for 8:15 and that's when we were seated."

  • "We went to Carmine's with Eggplant Parm on our minds reservation was for 8pm seating was right on time Everything wad as expected. We were just a party of 2 but as frequent diners we knew not to over order a great place for big and small. Remember to make reservations especially in summer and weekends"

  • "My dining experience at Carmine's was wonderful! The food was delicious and our waiter was exceptional! I believe his name was Ed. It was our first time there so we needed help with the menu. Ed did a great job with that. We will definitely return should we get the opportunity!"

  • "Food was amazing; our waitress, Robin, was phenomenal. Highly recommend this place if you like Italian food and a lot of it. Don't expect a quiet atmosphere, though. There's always a party or two going on."

  • "Never disappoints! I can never say anything bad about carmines. Great food, great wine selection, great customer service... Oh and did i mention the food!?"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Fun NYC atmosphere, but huge plates meant to serve 6 to 8 meant we all had to have the same meal! Waiters were efficient but clumsy and twice slopped food into our laps. Only 2 pasta entrees for us no meat eaters. Might work well for some, but not a great sisning experience for us."

    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Food is Good - Service could be better. Every time we come here, our reservations are never taken on time. So if you make a reservation at a certain time, plan on eating about 30 minutes after that. Food is very good."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "As always this place is so accommodating to large groups, food was expedited perfectly. Great time with great friends and great food!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The service staff was very friendly, upbeat and charismatic. As a group of 4 we ordered the Hot Antipasto as our appetizer and it was great, but the dinner we ordered was less than thrilling. The food is generic and mass produced Italian. There's nothing authentic about the food served here and I can't understand why people flock to this place. We ordered the shrimp fra diavolo and veal saltimbocca, neither of which were seasoned properly. There was no flavor in either of the sauces and we left less than satisfied. There are much, much better quality restaurants to dine at and we will not be visiting Carmine's again. Save your money, not worth the hype."
