Great food. Service was also good. The food did take a little too long to come. But overall it was a good experience.

Traditional Italian family-style restaurant. Old fashioned comfort food, nothing nouvelle but well executed and served in a friendly efficient manner. Best to go with a group of people because the platters are large. Good value, we will certainly go again.

This is good in a traditional way, but not outstanding. The huge portions discourage people from trying different dishes. One entree is quite enough for two. Add a salad and you've got two dinners for two nights in a row. The shrimp pasta was good but nothing extraordinary. The table wine was just ok. The service was a good; server was pleasant and efficient. If someone wants a family dinner (I'd say have at least four or five people), this might be the place. If you are looking for a couple's dining experience, it's not the place for you.

Great family style dining, large portions so youre probably going to get a to go box which isnt a problem because the food is really tasty. Excellent pricing for the portion sizes and a very hearty environment! Great staff too they're all really kind and communal and incredibly informative about menu. In other words, go there!

The service was exceptional. The food was almost perfect except for the Chocolate Bread Pudding. It’s half a portion smaller and it is not the same recipe. I have been eating there since my kids were little.

The pudding is still good, it’s just not the same as pre Covid.

Why?

Price increase is ok but why change what was perfect?

The portions are HUGE! We had a party with 6 adults and ordered 3 plates (chicken and two pastas) plus one salad. We could have shared the salad and one order of pasta. Food was amazing though! Quality and taste were so worth it. Our waiter could have been nicer, he was older and seemed like he’d worked there for a while but only suggested most expensive bottle of wine from France when we specifically asked for something from Napa and it was clear he didn’t really want to be there. However the staff who brought out our food were more than pleasant and nice. The greeter outside and managerial staff was also incredibly helpful as we had an infant with us and they brought in our stroller, diaper bag and car seat and safely stored it for us. We’ll definitely be back! Thank you!

We had a great experience, as usual, at Carmine's-91st Street. Due to Covid (?), many people want to sit outside, so it wasn't crowded (or, loud) inside, plus the A/C made it very comfortable on a muggy evening. Our Waiter, Joe, was Attentive and Personable, and took very good care of us. Thanks, Carmine's, Again!
