A word from Carmine's - Las Vegas
Carmine's, NYC's Legendary Family Style Restaurant, 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 four to six 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 dishes are huge. Advice pick one dish and it's enough for 2 of you. So if you are a table of 4 only choose two dishes. The food is excellent and the restaurant is in a great location within the forum shops in Ceasars Palace. A great find,

    Went with a group of 8 and everything was perfect! Only con for me is that I am gluten free and there were no options available nor could I order a single portion of veggies for myself. Other than that, service was excellent and everyone truly enjoyed the food! Definitely would recommend!

    My wife and I ate ate Carmine's in New York and really enjoyed the authentic Italian food and we're excited to when we stumbled over it in Vegas. My wife's a great cook and also happens to be Italian so when she say's it good it mustbe. The food at Carmine's is serve red family style so either go hungery or be prepared to take home left overs. Great Food "Ottimo Cibo" at a good price.

    During the course of eating dinner two different employees (not our servers) came up to our table and interrupted us, one by saying "oh you're getting the artichokes!" and leaned into the table and over one of our guest's. A second employee came up to the table and starting talking to us about what he likes - nobody asked! It felt rude and intrusive as we were having a private dinner. We also felt VERY rushed. They whisked away the bread before we were done with it. The salad -- almost 40 dollars was NOT GOOD. The dressing was bland and the lettuce was not crispy, nor did it taste fresh. The artichokes were meh. Too much garlic. The bread wasn't good either. The Carmines in NYC is so much better and superior! The chicken parm was good though. The chicken was tender. However there wasn't enough sauce on it and we had to ask for more.

    The food was absolutely fantastic. My husband and I went to have pasta the night before a marathon and we're not disappointed. The portions are enormous since each is designed to share family style. For this reason, we had a ton of food we didn't eat, but for Vegas the meal was still very reasonable. Bottom line...dinner for two...I might skip this in favor of somewhere with individual servings. Groups of four or more, absolutely worth a try!!!

    We had a wonderful time at Carmine's in Las Vegas. We were in town for the Rock N Roll Las Vegas Marathon and this was our pre-race carb-loading meal. We were a party of 8 and were seated and attended to very quickly. The food was amazing and even though we ordered only 3 dishes, with 8 of us, there were leftovers! However, we did find room for dessert. The Titanic requires some skill to plate, but is worth every bite. Service was wonderful, the cocktails were well made, dinner was delicious and dessert was divine! We will be returning!

    The server, Michael, was outstanding. And he is also a wonderful photographer. Two of us had the Caesar Salad, Shrimp Parm and since that does not come with pasta, added Penne a la Vodka. All was delicious, especially the shrimp. We knew we were ordering way more than we could eat, but Michael boxed and bagged it and kept it in their refrigerator while we went and rode the Highroller. Easy pick up when we were done. A great evening. Can see that it would be a wonderful place to go with a group!

    The service staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They will warn you that the service is FAMILY STYLE. Between the 4 of us (we are not huge eaters) we had ONE entree and ONE appitizer between us and if anything maybe I would order a salad too next time (also big enough for 4 to share!). Love the patio part that is in the mall so you can people watch!

    The food was impressive and large portions but too large. The recommended carmines salad was not imprressive at all...looked like a large serving of airline salad with cubes of cheese and ham in it. The pasta with chicken was ok. I even work near by but would not recommend the place again for groups smaller than 4, and even then would hesitate to go back.

    Located in the Forum area of Caesars Palace. Area is made to look like you are outside (streets, painted sky, etc). Shops and restaurants are along "streets". Carmine's is one of the restaurants. Carmine's has a nice decor, good food, very good service. Food is served family style, i.e., the table is provided plates for the diners and food is brought to the table in serving dishes. One entree easily serves two persons. Most pasta dishes are in the $40 range but the daily specials are not priced. In fact they are much more expensive ($60 to $80). Have your waiter repeat your order and state the total price of your entree.

    Our party of six arrived with big appetites and high expectations. The restaurant was crowded but that did not interfere with our great time. The waiter recommended that we order three entrees for the group, but we didn't listen and ordered four. One Caesar's salad was plenty for the entire table. The entrees are huge but all were excellent. Two of us are Italian and we were pleasantly surprised at how authentic the pasta dishes were. I especially liked the red sauce with meatballs, sausages, and braciole. Heading back to Vegas in January and will definitely visit Carmine's.

    Food and ambiance here was good for an Italian style restaurant. The restaurant is geared towards large portions for family or large party dining. There were 2 of us and we had to agree on the same item since items on the menu are way too big for just one person. I probably would only return if I was part of a large group. Again, not really geared towards one or two people dining.

    Our server was very knowledgable and friendly. The family style dining was not what we were expecting. The appetizer and salad were rediculously oversized and the main dish, Veal Marsala, was hardly enough to serve three people. They brought out food so fast like a fast food restaurant. We turned back the salad as they had just served the calamari appetizer. Then they brought out the main course Veal Marsala before the salad. ??Some kitchen issues there. We probably will not go back. Too many other fabulous places to dine at with out all the confusion.

    We went in with a reservation for a party of 12. Service was great, food came fast, wonderful selection of pre-food breads and fresh butter and AMAZING flavor of all the entrees ordered! When ordering the waitress stated that the proportions will feed 3 -5 people per entrée. She was not kidding. We ordered the Chicken Parmesan with penne pasta and OMG there was literally a LARGE take out lasagna pan full for our leftovers! It was great!! :)

    Great restaurant, great service. The only downside is really the shear volume of food you get. I would go back in a minute but not with less than 6 people to share. Example: We had 6 people share the Caesar salad ($27) to start and we didn't finish the serving. I would gladly pay a premium price for a smaller (1/4 serving).

Our waiter was servicing a table of eight right in front of us and while I understand that size party would bring a larger tip it does not give waiter permission to ignore smaller parties. We had waiter in absentia.

    I have dined in both NYC locations of Carmine's and never been disappointed. I was a little unsure if they could match the experience in Las Vegas, but they knocked it out of the park! The food is amazing, and well priced. One dish can feed 4-5 people. I've not yet had anything on the menu I dislike. Carmine's has ruined all other chicken parmasean for me, because theirs is phenomenal.
