  • "Perfect place for a bunch of teens after a trip to the MOMA. Food is very good, Nostalgic atmosphere, clean, prompt, friendly. Known for family style and abundant servings. A piece of NY history. "

  • "I have been coming to this restaurant for since 1989 and it never disappoints. I remember everything I've ever eaten here and it's always fantastic. If I have to say one thing it would be that it is very cramped. They try to take a table that seats 6 and put 8, too tight. when making reservations for 8 or more ask for 2 square tables pushed together."

  • "With huge family style platters (each serving feeds a whole family with leftovers to bring home), the food was surprisingly delicious, and nicely served. Basic "comfort"style Italian food, well prepared, tasty and plenty of it. The ambiance is big and crowded but is still condusive to an evening of good food, good conversation and comeraderie with your friends and famiy. Best suited for groups, thankfully open late, ideal for after theatre dinner. Service was efficient and pleasant. "

  • " My brother, an NYPD officer and WTC first responder loved to go to Carmines. He has been battling cancer since 2011, but when I made the reservations I believed he would be well on his way to being cancer free. My brother, lost his battle three weeks ago and going to Carmines, at first, seemed too difficult..but we prevailed and went in his honor. My family had a wonderful dinner. We had a table that gave us a birds eye view of the restaurant, our waiter was spot on and the food, what's not to love about the food. We left with 6 containers of food, probably my brothers' portion. I could not have asked for a more perfect experience, except that he was with us. You made a very difficult day, a day we will always remember. Thank you all."

  • "This is one of the best basic home style spaghetti and meatballs I've found in any Italian restaurant. Totally loved it. My new favorite go to for traditional italian. My only complaint is they only serve portions that could realistically feed 6 moderate eaters (e.g. 6 women), or maybe 4 adults if two were men with very large appetites. It's a fun idea to have one family style portion in the middle to serve everyone, but what if you're just two people, or even want TWO different dishes? What if you're going somewhere after that precludes being able to take all those leftovers? I feel like they should offer realistic single person portions but they don't because it's better for their bottom line and the wastefulness of that bugs me."

  • "Carmine's on 44th street is conveniently located in the theatre district. My family and I have been dining there for over 15 years and the experience has never been a disappointment. Be sure to make a reservation, especially with a large party...and you will be seated immediately. Definitely a must try for newcomers!!"

  • "Many of my friends recommended this restaurant. I was very happy with our trip to their location near Time Square. The food portions were very large. We had a fantastic meal. Make a reservation otherwise you might be waiting for some time to get in. The place was packed but they has a large amount of service staff. Everything was good. Very pleased with our visit."

  • "I love Carmine's. Everytime I'm in the city I try to get in there, which is extremely difficult. The food is delicious. Having said that, I think it is grossly overpriced even for NYC Theatre District standards. Seriously $30 for angel hair? That's just stealing from your guests. I always order the angel hair pomodoro, it's my favorite dish, along with either veal or chicken parm. But I would recommend removing half of the pomodoro on the angel hair dish. For $30 I got 70% whole tomato that didn't get eaten, and 30% angel hair which is what I want to eat. It was still delicious, and I brought all that tomato home which I will use for a sauce. But that breakdown should be 30/70 and not the other way around."

  • "The food and service was outstanding! We went for my daughter's 13th birthday. There were only three of us and even lunch portions are large so I don't recommend going with only a few people. But the food was too die for!"

  • "Whenever I visit NYC I go to Carmine's Midtown. Dishes are huge and reasonably priced, food is delicious and the ambiance is very pleasant. The only small criticism about last time is that we weren't told about the specials only to find out that it was spaghetti carbonara, which we LOVE and would have definitely ordered. But our penne a la vodka was amazing, nevertheless."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "We love Carmines. The food is always perfect and worth the wait if you do not have reservations. The cheesy garlic bread is outrageous, it is a meal in itself. Also try the angel hair pasta with garlic and oil, the garlic is roasted and is measured in bulbs not cloves. Chicken parmigana is so thin and buttery it melts in your mouth covered in cheese with just a hint of sauce. If having the chicken, try the house white moscato - chilled, sweet and bubbly it is the perfect compliment to a great meal. A real 5 star experience every time."

  • "We arrived at 3:25 for a 3:30 reservation and told we had a 3:00 reservation 4 times, when it was 3:30 via open table. 2 of us arrived early and told we could not be seated until the entire party was there, and did not realize it was like Cheesecake Factory. We watched 2 people get seated in front of us without entire party. For outstanding quality food and fun, it was a fantastic birthday experience for our family once we got through the initial difficulties in customer service. Very poor welcome - initial customer communication, mgr made up for the error by sending antipasto. Once the tension lifted, The food was outstanding, the wait staff was attentive. but by the end of the evening, there was love and family and that trumps all."

  • "This was my first time at Carmine's. If I had chosen for the service, I would NEVER go back... Food was great, service was the worse I have ever had, in any restaurant, from 1 star to 5 star. Our server had 5 tables, each of which he checked on at least 5 times during our 2 hour visit. He checked on us only once and that was when he asked if we wanted dessert. Since it is not all about the service, I would go again, however I would be sure to avoid this waiter."

  • "I booked a table of nine so we may enjoy lunch for my wife's birthday. By accident as we arrived, I realized I made a mistake and it should have been a table for 10. The staff did not blink an eye, we had a table within one minute and it was no stress for them to help me out with my error. The server was very warm and greeted us like we were lost family. She explained the menu well and even made some suggestions. This was a very special day for my wife and her friend. Plus, the birthday song and dessert was the cherry on the cake."
