Platters of made to order pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing among 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!

    A table was booked for 6.30pm and despite this we had to wait until 7.15pm before being seated. Our table was on the floor, wedged between 4 tables of 10 to 18 people and in a dark place. The noise level was deafening (well beyond reasonable). Our waitress was very smiley but the staff was rather unpleasant. The quality of the food was really poor. Everything was too sour and bland. I don't understand the craze for this restaurant. It is not interesting from a culinary point of view as well as from the atmosphere.

    Disaster. First day in NYC, jet lagged kids. Their lasagne order didn’t go through, asked 4 people, finally got lasagne and turns out was never ordered. Two kids screaming hungry and jet lagged while the third was fed. Manager took the lasagne off the bill but terrible service. We shouldn’t have had to ask 4 different people before it got sorted. Wouldn’t go back. Food ok.

    My first time to this iconic NYC restaurant (my wife suggested it as she goes regularly with her relatives and friends after a local theater show), hosting a table for 7 relatives from out of town. We asked to sit outside in the makeshift enclosure (popped up during Covid), which was entertaining and loud due to theater district street activity but also enjoyable (also iconic NYC) and seemingly safe from the automobiles passing by. The wait staff was very professional, friendly, and full of useful suggestions pertaining the large menu. The food was excellent Italian fare served sort of family style (appetizers and entrees are meant to be shared by a few people). The price was very reasonable. A great time was had by all!!!

    For the three of us we shared a Caesar salad and lasagna which was amazing. We had a little bit of salad left over but no lasagna. We were in and out in less than an hour which gave us plenty of time to walk around Time Square. Our waiter was great and the service was awesome. Would definitely go back again. Best to go with a group of 6 or more.

    Went for pre theater lunch so ordered light; mussels snd salad. Carmines salad was excellent but way too big. The mussels, particularly the sauce (sopped up with lots of bread) were great. We finished those. Prices have increased a lot since I was there last and portions, although very large, are somewhat smaller. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly.

    Thank you for the wonderful experience we had at your amazing restaurant, the food is excellent the service faultless , everyone is so helpful and friendly, just one small criticism, the air-conditioning is turned up so high we all felt very cold and a little uncomfortable, being a warm day I don't think it was realised it had cooled down by the evening. Thank you once again for a most enjoyable dinner.

    Went to Carmine's with the family before heading to a Broadway play. The service was amazing, the drinks were wonderful, and the food was great as well. Know that everything is served family style here, so a little goes a long way. Two dishes were more than enough for my party of three, as we had plenty left over and no room for dessert! If you are looking for good Italian food, this is a great place to start!

    Every time we visit NYC, we dine at Carmine's. This place is a landmark and a staple in the Times Square area. They have another location in NYC and a few others outside of New York as well. From the moment you enter, until you leave, it feels like you are transported back to a different time (I LOVE THAT)! We got in for an early lunch, so it was fairly empty and quiet, but we have also dined when completely full, and while loud, there's never an issue with having/hearing your own conversations. There are several menus located on the walls throughout the restaurant, which is part of the ambiance and charm (but you can also ask for one-if you would like). All of the food is presented family-style. Big plates, filled with lots of great Italian food, get passed around the table from diner to diner...and normally there is still extra to take back to the hotel, or home. The food itself is fantastic! The menu is filled with traditional Italian favorites (we love the vodka sauce!!), with a few lesser recognized surprises!! Their drink menu is really good! A full page of signature cocktails (the Louie's Spiked Lemonade is great in the summer!), and a wine list on the other side really gives options to cater to all experiences. The service is professional and understated. They use a team approach with food runners, bussers, and servers working together. It is quite a well-oiled machine! I have always been impressed with the service, and this lunch was no exception. Coming back in the fall...and we will definitely be heading to Carmine's again!
