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!

This was our second time at Carmine’s. The food was once again out of this world! I come from an Italian family and this place feels like home!

The restaurant was extremely accommodating even though we arrived 1 hour before our actual reservation. One caveat was plainly stated that there was another reservation coming 2 hours behind us. Being that we were a hungry family of 5 who rarely dawdles more than an hour at any restaurant, that was fine with us!

In the heart of the Manhattan theater district, this restaurant is a must go dining.
The staff is friendly and accommodating. Our waiter immediately asked if we had been there previously and explained the family style portions. He made suggestions when asked and was attentive to our requests and desires. Since it is located in the the Times Square area, they are always making sure you will get to your show/play on time.
The food was perfectly prepared and we were pleasantly surprised that every dish was to our tastes. The pasta was al-dente, the shrimp fra-diablo was spiced, but not over the top, the escarole was great, the baked clams were prepared just the way we preferred. The best touch was the baked mushrooms with spicy sausage.
The portion size was lovely and we all ate heartily with no left overs.
We received our check in a timely manner and get to the theater on time.
We highly recommend going to Carmine's and experiencing the value and delightful food. Remember to compliment the lovely staff on their professionalism and quiet attentiveness to your dinner.

It was great experiance but the food temperature should have been much higher, it was warm, not hot at all, perhaps the dishes sat at the counter too long.

Fun place to go with a group. Food high carb, high fat , high salt and for a once in a while treat worth it all.
Homestyle service. When the huge platters of food come out and placed on the table, the thoughts are why did we order so much. Always wind up ordering just one more dish. Mangia !!!

This is a family style restaurant. One dish can easily serve 3-4 people so the price is definitely worth it.

Love the food and the atmosphere. A little pricey but not out of line with other NYC restaurants. Love the Porterhouse! And everything else I've had there.

I love the food. You get a lot for your money. Our waitress screwed up and I did not get what I ordered. She offered to give me the right thing. It took a half hour to get it. We were already finished with the meal. I took it home but it’s not the same as fresh. Very disappointed. I had been looking forward to it all week. Anyway their good is great but it is very noisy and always very busy.

Carmine’s was very good as usual, it’s perfect for a business meal that’s reasonably priced. We had a bottle of their own Barolo and while the wine was a little pricey, it was very good and enjoyed by all. I would recommend Carmine’s for dinner in the Times Square area, it does get busy so I recommend you make reservations well in advance.

We tried carmines after eating at toni di napolis and found that Toni"s is much better. Chicken scarp with no cherry peppers sausage or potatoes is not chicken scarp. Veal cutlet was tough not tender. Tomatoe sauce has parm in it which to me it shouldnt have in it. Meal was not bad but compared to other restaurants this is mediocre.

Right after being seated we were told that we would only have a certain amount of time at that table. But if we moved to another table we could potentially have more time. I made this reservation weeks in advance I didn’t need to be told that I had a time limit to eat.

Family-style dining is THE way to go with a large group before or after a show! The atmosphere at Carmine's is quintessential NYC....robust and lively with lots of large groups enjoying themselves. The coctails were great and the food was plentiful and delish. Be wary of the amount of food you order if you are unable to take home leftovers!

Best Italian food I have ever tasted. Portions were huge, enough for 3 people. Garlic bread with cheese is worth the calories.
