This is a Christmas tradition to have lunch at Carmine's while visiting New York for the day, however, it has been very disappointing the past few years where they do not have a lunch menu. Their sandwiches are fabulous but they do not offer them during the holiday season for some reason. This is way too much food for lunch. I'm hoping they will discontinue this practice next year.

recommended by my sister-in-law and my nephew who live in NY. Carmine’s doesn’t disappoint in food, fun and service. Everything was delicious and top quality. Especially good for groups of friends. The only downside is the noise but we were seated in the back and it was significantly quieter.

excellent entrees you only need to order one appetizer one salad and one entre for two or four its big enough for four and overstuffed for two. We had a Caesars Salad Meatball Side And Rigatoni with sausage and Broccoli with a drink each Bill came to 95.00.. excellent for City Pricing--

This was our 3rd time to travel to NYC & our trips there always include a meal at Carmine’s. We brought 3 other couples who had never eaten there before and they all loved the food and experience. We started our meal with martinis and appetizers. The fried calamari was superb and several commented the Caesar salad was the best they’ve ever tasted. We chose 2 entrees, lasagna and a pasta special and they were delicious. We finish our meal with the Titanic banana split shared by the 8 of us ! Great Great evening! Would highly recommend Carmine’s!!
