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

Diner Reviews
  • "Our waitress did not take out order until we were seated for at least 20 minutes. She was tied up with a much larger group, but she apologized. The salad special was soggy and underdressed. The salmon special was delicious and the lasagna was decent."

  • "Our server, I think his name was Chris, didn't seem to care a lick about us. Otherwise, a a nice place to dine with friends and share a meal. I grew up Italian, and the family-style concept reminds me of home."

  • "I have had better Italian food for a whole lot cheaper.....The Veal Marsala was outstanding though...$35 for penne vodka..I dont care how much they pile on..Plenty of old time pictures on the wall to look at...Great for families to share..they encourage it..."

  • "Four of us visited this place for the first time before a show in Atlantic City. The place was busy and we had to wait despite having a reservation. Once seated the service was prompt, courteous and helpful. They serve family style and protions are probably large enough for two to three people. Four would stretch it unless you order additional items or are more accustomed to european portons. The food is tasty but that's about it. Spaghetti @ $40 for three people would work out to $12 each so reasonably priced but that's what you get. Pasta, sauce, nothing else so if you want salad, meatballs etc bill mounts quickly. Nevertheless food, while nothing besides ordinary was certainly adequate."

  • "We had fried zucchini for an appetizer. The amount of food would have fed 6 people. Shoestring zucchini with light bread crumbs and parmesian cheese. I could have eaten the whole thing for an entree...DELICIOUS. Our main dish was Chicken Romano. It was served on a bed of spinach, which was cooked perfectly. The roasted potatoes were done just right. The slices of chicken breast were moist and tender and had an amazing sauce on them. My husband is not a chicken eater but he loved it. Our server did an excellent job."

  • "We went for my friends birthday. We had reservations, but still waited about 15 minutes. We ordered Carmine's Salad (the best), Manicotti (comes with 6), side of Meatballs (comes with 6), Chicken Parm (excellent), and Penne ala Vodka (good, but full of garlic slices). They sang for her birthday but we had to order and pay for dessert. We split the strawberry shortcake which was a small serving but perfect after all that food. We took home almost half of to penne."

  • "Carmines has always been a family favorite since I would go with my parents into New York to celebrate birthdays etc. Now my children love it. We had to eat there in the Bahamas and Atlantic city because they love it so much."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Extremely Loud! Food was just ok! A little pricy for the portion sizes! Ok for a group but certainly not a place for a romantic date! They try to rush you out as quick as they can-- tried to take my plate three times before I finished eating!"

  • "We had a lovely time. The complimentary champagne was soooo nice. Of course there was too much food and we could not take it with us as we were travelling. It would have been better if we had a group with us."

  • "At first the table I got put at was in a tight spot but she quickly moved us. The seating spot was hard to see the menu from but the waiter found is done which was a good gesture. Tube food came quick and was good. The server was very attentive."

  • "I visited Carmine's with four of my girlfriends on our last visit to AC. We ordered the Carmine salad, penne ala vodka and chicken parmigiana. It was fantastic and the Canyon Road White Zin was great also. (we ordered it by the bottle because it was cheaper that way). We had more than enough left over for us to have lunch the next day!"

  • "Been to Carmine's 4 times and loved it every time. The food is excellent and I try something new every time I come. Our waiter was Vincent, who was so friendly and attentive!! Definitely have the Carmine's Salad!! It is so delicious and a great way to start your meal! One of the things we ordered this time was the Chicken Scapariello (spelling??) and it was one of the best things I had ever eaten there! I highly recommend it! It's best to go with a large group but I have also gone there as a couple. Don't miss Carmine's in AC!!"

  • "We went to Atlantic City for my boyfriend's birthday and I made reservations at Carmines! I had been there once before with a large group but my boyfriend had never been. I was very excited to take him there! The food was incredible, the atmosphere was warm, romantic and inviting! They serve everything family style and the portions are huge! We had the Spiedini alla romano appetizer and it was so delicious! Then we had 1 order of the Chicken Saltimbocca over angel hair and it was phenomenal! We took enough home for another 2 meals! I can't wait to go back!"

  • "Carmines is a must for special occasions and groups when visiting the Tropicana Quarter in Atlantic City, NJ. The Carmines Salad, Pasta with Meat sauce and Meat Balls served in traditional family style portions are more than adequate to fill your hunger and plentiful to take some home. The staff were kind and service was prompt and attentive. Well positioned television monitors tuned in the 2014 PGA Tournament allowed us to view a dramatic finish to this year's competition. Highly recommend"

  • "We have been to Carmine's in NYC many, many times, however, this was our first time at Carmine's in AC. Food was fabulous as was the staff! Everyone was so friendly and could not do enough to make our dining experience the best! We went to dinner before a show and were in and out in plenty of time to get a little gambling in before the show! Will definitely go back and highly recommend. While we were all adults, there were several tables with children . .. so great experience for all and any occasion!"
