Thank you for choosing Carmine's Midtown. We are located in the heart of Times Square on 44th Street between 7th & 8th Avenue. Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. With "wow-factor" sized portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast. Platters of home-style antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing amongst friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's!

I have been to carmine’s many times and i have never been this shocked or disappointed... I got the special which was pasta with clams, mussels, and a bunch of other seafood. It was great until it wasn’t. There was what it seemed to be a hermit crab or some kind of sea critter in our food. I don’t think it should have been there and I was grossed out afterwards so i couldn’t finish. I asked what it was or if that was normal, the waiter who was very nice said “ what is that” and then said “oh i’ve seen that a couple of times.
Not that I wanted a discount or anything but we didn’t get anything off the check and we just left as soon as possible. so i guess stay away from the seafood ...

It was good, I liked the family style a lot but it was so crammed, you could tell y’all tried to shove in as many tables as possible. The waiter barely checked on us too.

Well, our pasta was a little undercook our waiter took it to back he was phenomenal. Then the next serving tasted as if the pasta was cook in a seafood broil. I appreciate the effort but when you cook yourself personally and can tell the difference in taste I was just over it at this moment it was niece birthday

Carmine’s was amazing! From the service to the food to the wine. We had 4 members in our party ordered chicken Parmesan, shrimp scampi and linguine and ate almost all of it! It was outstanding!

I was looking for a restaurant close to the Schubert Theater to have dinner after the show. Carmine's is across the street and I love Italian food, so I made reservations. This first pleasant surprise was the mixed drink. The Margarita was great. We ordered the Carmine salad and chicken parmesan. The salad was delicious and the chicken was outstanding. The chicken was so tender you could cut it with a fork. The gravy was just right, just like Mom used to make. If you decide to go, bring your family or lots of friends. Everything is served family style. There was just two of us, so we took lots of food home. We enjoyed that great food for two more days.

Carmine's is a Time Square landmark. Best to go with a large group for dinner because the portions are very large. The lunch portions are smaller. If you are only two people, I recommend sitting at the bar.

FYI, the meatballs are very good. The serving portion is 6 meatballs but you can order just one.

We absolutely adore Carmine's and would recommend this wonderful family establishment to anyone. The food is always exquisite, the staff is always friendly and professional and we get exactly what we drive from Pennsylvania thru New Jersey into busy Times Square Theater District for each and every time!!! We did miss the bartender Junior has he was off on Saturday night :-(

I'll keep this simple. I have been to this restaurant numerous times. Always pleased. But this trip made me want to write a review. I was so impressed with how quickly they sat our table. We had reservations for 5:30 on a Friday night. They won't seat you until the rest of your party arrives. From the time our last person arrived, we were seated within 15 minutes.

While I waited for my friends, I sat at the bar. Miguel made sure to tell me there was an open seat and helped me move my drinks to it. I was able to sit and peruse the menu with ease. We decided to order appetizers while we waited, but ended up getting seated prior to the food arriving. Miguel made sure to bring up our appetizers as soon as they arrived. EXCELLENT SERVICE with an EXCELLENT attitude. He really set the pace for the whole evening.

Dinner was great. Food was outstanding. Our waiter was fantastic. AND HONEST! He gave us suggestions based on our preferences and we couldn't have been please more.

Thank you Carmine's for yet another wonderful evening with friends.

Carmine's is our favorite restaurant in the theater district. We've been patrons for many years. Their meatballs are the best. Their food is always fresh and consistently delicious. We have never been disappointed!

Booked for my daughters 16th birthday after theatre. Restaurant was extremely busy but seated pretty quickly close to reservation time. Waiter was not that friendly barely answered our questions and only came over with food and bill. Never checked yo see if we needed anything during our time there. Other staff members were not familiar with any questions said only waiter could help us. Food was good, not anything to brag about! Was much better last time we went. Never asked if we were celebrating anything and when making a reservation girl also could not answer questions about purchasing a cake for my daughters buryhday! Sounded as if she didn’t want to be bothered! We left and went home to have cake instead of staying since given a hard time when calling! Would have loved to stay!
