Italian
Carmine's simple and very popular concept is to serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast - which means large portions of home-style antipasti, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on large platters designed for sharing. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. If you are in the market for better than average family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.

Carmines never disappoints. We shared a chicken Marsala. The sauce was good enough to drink with a spoon. We came back the next day to take some scarpariello wings to take home. They are a must for any trip to Carmine’s.

Me and my Fiancee went on a date here and it was our first time. When I made reservations we both couldn't wait to see the result. The food and every were great and the amount of food for the price was perfect!! We will be back.

This would be great for a large group who enjoys family style dining. All the food was good. A few items were excellent such as the gnocchi and bow tie pasta. The place is loud and the service was a little slow at times.

Why make reservations when they let anyone who walks in go ahead of you, while they keep ignoring you.

ONE WORD ABOUT CARMINES... "GREAT!!! BUT I NEED 50 CHARACTERS SO I'LL SAY EVERYTHTING FROM SERVICE TO ONE ENTREE BEING ENOUGH FOR 2 PEOPLE TO GET 2 SERVINGS AND CARRY OUT ENOUGH IN A CARRY OUT TO HAVE 2 MORE SERVINGS THE NEXT DAY FOR ONE PRICE WAS MORE THAN I EXPECTED JUST WISH I COULD HAVE EXPERIENCED CARMINES LONG BEFORE NOW.

Food was good but service was poor. Had to continually look for or ask for server to come to table. Had reservations and were seated on time. Water glasses super small and needed to be refilled constantly which was a little annoying.

We arrived 15 minutes late due to a accident on Parkway and when we got there our reservation was gone. Then they told us it would be 35 minutes. Ended up eating at bar even though there were empty tables.

I brought in a party of 14 to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. It was easy to make reservation on line a We were sat as soon as we arrived. Our waiter, Don, was fantastic. The food was amazing. There was a mix up on one of the dishes, but it was remedied quickly. With a large group, there are bound to be wait times on things. Drinks were one of them. But, it was all good. Everyone had a good time, left happy and full! I couldn't have asked for a better memory making visit!

We have eaten at Carmine’s in NYC and the food was phenomenal. We were hoping for the same in Atlantic City. We ordered some of the identical items as NYC and the flavor and quality was not anywhere near NYC. The flavor was bland (except overloaded with salt) and rivaled other-so-called Italian chains. Very disappointed.

About my 50th trip to Carmines AC and now just an overpriced tourist trap. Since when is a Carmines Salad $32 no longer chopped and more expensive than pasta dishes ?
Also missing hot peppers and green olives. Had to search for about 12 clams lost in a briny tomato broth ...used to be twice as many.

Came for dinner at 430pm.. was rushed through our dining experience.. ordered dinner salad and bread along with appetizers everything came out at once.. appetizers were cold.. asked sever to please slow things down. When main entrees came out $38 platter of pasta was cold and hard! Chicken parmigiana was very tasty but again barely warm. Very expensive dinner for pasta that taste like it was out of a box

I've been to Carmine's in NYC several times and Washington DC and I can say their food had been excellent every time. Here in A.C., the food wasn't worth the price. The pasta was under cooked (hard and glumps of pasta was stuck together). If the pasta is going to costs an extra ($11) and not included with my Chicken Parm, then they better make sure the pasta is perfect especially in a well known italian restaurant. Waiter (Jorge) was great (very attentive) and had paid attention to the little message I had left under instructions with Open Table to surprise my wife for our Anniversary with a nice desert and candle. It was a perfect touch.

we choose Carmine’s when we’re a bigger crowd, where everyone can find something they like and splitting the bill needs to be a no-brainer. for a restaurant that churns out such large portions of food to so many, it’s really quite good (the fried calamari is better than many restaurants i’ve ordered it).

at the end of the meal, eye the leftovers you’d like to take home — there’s bound to be leftovers — and go for it!

The server we had paid close attention to what we said to him. We had a coupon from a bridal show and we told him that. He asked when we are getting married and we told him that we were actually celebrating our one year anniversary. He congratulated us on our anniversary. After dinner he brought us a single scoop of ice cream that was very nice of him.
