Muy rico y abundante. Podrían haber comido 3 o 4 personas. No es caro.
Reservamos on líne y entramos inmediatamente.

Carmines is never a disappointment. Always good food and lively atmosphere. You don't come here if you're expecting a quiet dining experience. Love the Chicken Marsala. Always tender chicken, lots of fresh mushrooms and delicious Marsala sauce, tasty but not overpowering. Portions are huge and are meant for sharing. Prices are reasonable. Great for groups. A landmark that should be on everyone's list when in NYC. LOVE THIS PLACE!

Making a reservation seemed pointless as we had to wait, standing in a overcrowded bar area,(right next to diners who were not able to enjoy their meal properly because of all the bystanders ) for over 40 minutes. The hostesses had to fight this crowd everytime they had to seek out a party to seat them.
There needs to be a better reception area so waiting customers can wait comfortably. And so diners are able to enjoy their meal without total strangers standing inches from their tables. You called to confirm my reservation- why not call or text me to let me know my table is ready so I could do a little sight seeing outside without disturbing those trying to enjoy their meal and I could avoid having to stand for 40 minutes being pushed and shoved by people trying to get by.
Other than that- waiter was great and the food was delicious

We went pre-show and to celebrate my husband’s bday. Seated promptly at the time of our reservation. Prompt and attentive wait staff. Everyone was very nice. Unfortunately Found the GF options a bit limited and unexciting. Ordered off the GF and regular menu. Portions were family sized. Quality was ok. Although dessert ordered was supposed to be GF - served with cookies - gluten 😳

Carmine’s was as good as usual. The mussels in marinara were excellent, especially the broth. The shrimp in marinara was also very good. Their rolls and bruschetta are also excellent- great for dipping in the broth. Service was top notch! We’ll continue to go their pre theatre.

I have to say I wasn't expecting much from this restaurant because I'm picky with Italian food, but wow, I'm a fan! My husband and I shared the spaghetti with meatballs, a classic choice since it was my first time (he had been before) and everything was really tasty. the portions are huge, we still had enough for two more people, so I'd recommend coming with a big group so you can share the food and try more dishes :)

The food is expensive but the servings are large, so you really only need a pasta and a meat dish (plus salad or appetizers) for 4 people. The hostesses could be friendlier, for sure. Our waiter was great. Stopped us from ordering too much, which we appreciated. Restaurant on the 1st floor is VERY loud; 2nd floor a little quieter but still quite loud.

The only negative part was the hostess stand. Three ladies who chose to acknowledge you when they are ready...I stood there for quite a while, which made me angry.

The food family style setting was excellent. The service was excellent. Compare to the temperature outside, which was bitingly cold 12 degrees, it was heavenly to be inside Carmine's, sitting down, and enjoying a healthy delicious meal with the family while warming up.

Excellent food and huge portions. A little pricey - but this is midtown Manhattan - where everything is overpriced. We had a reservation for 6 pm (on a Wednesday night in mid January) and were right on time, but the place was a zoo. We weren't seated until 6:20 pm and the bar area was so packed we were suffocating. (No place to sit down). It did not help that I had a cold and needed to sit down asap. Also, we waited a long time for our food and the waiter apologized profusely. We had an 8 pm play (one block away) and barely made it. If you are going to an 8 pm show, be safe and make a reservation for 5:30 pm.

Only two doors down from Times Square we arrived to find our table was ready on time even though the restaurant was very busy. This was important since we had arrangements to see a Broadway play later that evening. Our waiter (Moe) explained the menu and gave us just the right attention. The food was particularly good - it was all home made (even the sausage). The portions were immense but Moe warned us and we therefore ordered two entree's for our able of four and we ate family style. It worked perfectly. The Chianti we ordered was delicious and pared well with our Italian meal. The manager came over to thank us for our patronage and ask how our meal went. The rest of the staff including the doormen were very helpful with directions and advice. Carmines was an extremely good dining experience. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone .....but bring your appetite.

We were early for our reservation so we had a drink at the bar. Good wine list, reasonable prices. We choose the cold antepasto and chicken masala to share. For 3 people it was too much food but very good. It's in the heart of the theatre district so it's very convenient. Great for groups. The waitstaff were knowledgeable and pleasant. Would definitely return and recommend.

I couldn’t believe our luck when I found Carmine’s on the door step of our hotel. Having eaten in the Las Vegas restaurant in October last I couldn’t resist it. Got a late booking through open table so we skipped the queues. The place was buzzing on a Tuesday night , atmosphere was terrific and service was spot on. We had the Mussels and Special Carbonara and both were to die for.
It really made our trip to New York . Looking forward to visiting the Bahamas restaurant!

Went to Carmine's prior to seeing Aladdin on Broadway. We had a party of 8 and at first through the table may have been a bit tight, but it was just fine for the family style dinner. The food was delicious and served quickly so we had plenty of time to walk over to the theater.
