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!

We were in town for the weekend, found this gem online! Be sure to make a reservation. Each entree is meant to serve 3-4 people. Try the penne a la vodka. It’s to die for!!! We had a 6:30 reservation and got out in plenty of time for our 8pm showing of Hamilton.

Had a reservation and the host “checked us in,” then told us to wait at the bar. We ordered a drink and proceeded to watch as people walked in and were immediately seated at tables. There were about 5 hosts that just stood around laughing and talking while we waited 15 min after our reservation time. Finally we stood back by the front desk while they continued to avoid us until finally a nice gentleman asked us if we had been helped and we explained that we checked in already but none of them knew what was going on. Our servers were very nice and attentive. Food was great. We ordered a Caesar salad and meatballs and the meatballs came out awhile before the salad. We would definitely go back again, just disappointed in the check in/seating process.

We enjoyed another exceptional meal at Carmines’s...... great salad, pasta, vegetables and chicken. We sampled several desserts which were fantastic. Service at Carmines’s is consistently good. If you go before the theater, go early and enjoy a leisurely dinner, they do not rush you.

They only thing I do not like is the greeting at the door. It seems that your greeters are always in a hurry and treat there guest just left of rude. Example ok just wait on the side and we will call to you.
I have had dinner here many times and that is the one thing that bugs me the most. I have owed many business dealing with the public and I would not want my employees to treat there customers this way.

Loved the atmosphere here! The food was good and we enjoyed our dinner date. We got the meatballs and while they were very good, they were not the best we’ve ever had. My only complaint is the dishes are meant to serve 4, because there was just two of us, we had to throw away a ton of leftover salad and meatballs. Felt like a huge waste! We were in NYC for vacation and staying in a hotel, so we didn’t have the option to box it and take it home. (Plus it was our last night.) wish they had dinner options for 2!

The best veal parm is we have ever had, and fresh lasagna too. We ordered veal parm, lasagna, shrimp scampi and broccoli with plain cheesecake for dessert. It was my husband and I and our two teenage sons. We had some leftovers to bring home (3-4ish meals worth), but it was the perfect amount for our table.

Have always loved Carmines, was just a bit disappointed with my dish. Usually the eggplant pharm has more flavor. May have just been an off night. Generally a fun place but definitely not for intimate dining.

Carmine's was crowded and noisy, as always. There were only two of us and even though the Pasta Gardenia was delicious (great sauce and lots of veggies) there was no way we could finish it, so we gave the leftovers to a homeless person on 44th Street. The dish could easily have fed 6 people, but that's the way Carmine's does it - over-the-top family style. Better bring EVERYONE in your family and share, share, share!
