Definitely make reservations for this popular and worthy Italian restaurant. Know that portions are served family style and arrive hungry.
Always a great time and meal.
I know carmine prides itself in huge portions, but it’s s little ridiculous. If your there with a group but I was in from out of town with my daughter. We ordered chicken and pasta, I would have like a small salad, but my only option was a $25 salad — crazy that there’s no alternative for one person having salad. Similarly my daughter wanted a little dessert but the only options served three to four. This leads to tremendous waste (huge portions of uneaten food were being thrown out all around us (hotel stayers don’t really have an alternative and contributes to a rampant problem with obesity. I understand that big is a main part of the image — but when it’s this extreme and this rigid, it’s just poor customer service.
Definitely one of the best spots to dine in NYC. Great service, nice ambiance and the food’s so good.
The portions are HUGE! We ordered an appetizer and one dish for 5 people and still had leftovers. Very Yummy.
I'm sure others have raved about Carmines but this place was the highlight of all places we ate at this past weekend. Crazy busy and loud but we arrived for our 7:30 reservation pretty early so we could get out of the cold and they seated us within 15 minutes. I'm not sure you can find a better place in NYC to get your money's worth. My wife and I shared a simple plate of spaghetti and meatballs that could have fed 4 people. Couple of drinks and a bill of less than $50 is incredible. Pretty exciting place and everyone seemed to be enjoying it. Definitely will have to return!
Hands down the best Calamari I have ever tried!!!!
Excelente comida a buen precio y buena atencion
Absolutely amazing from start to finish. Adding this as a must for every visit to NYC. The most authentic cuisine and atmosphere.
Carmine's is one of our favorite NYC venues! Reservations were easily made.... however, we were not allowed to "check-in" until the specific reservation time. We were informed that we would still have a 20 minute wait ... will continue to return every time we are in NYC.
