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.

Terrible communication from the host and manager regarding our 8:00 reservation. Utter confusion, sat us at 9:45, food was good but again go with a back up plan if you are hungry or have plans, couldn’t care less about your actual reservation tine.

There was a large party of men chanting JETS and screaming and whistling. Very disturbing and inappropriate but the management handled it as best they could. They were overly attentive and continuously came to make sure our evening was going well. The food was excellent!

We were there to celebrate my 65 birthday. The food was excellent. My husband said it was the best steak he's ever eaten. Our waiter was awesome and the people sitting next to us engaged us in conversation. So all in all it was a perfect celebrating. Hoping to visit the one in New York over tbe Christmas holiday.

Having been to the Carmine's restaurants in NYC, we knew what to expect but this one actually exceeded our exceptions. Pasta with chunky tomatoes and Chicken Scarpiello were terrific.

As always, the food always has us coming back. At times can be a little loud but it’s to be expected of this easy family friendly restaurant. Consistently well prepared and always delicious. A definite fave place to eat.

Love the food although some were a little bit saltier to my taste. Penne Vodka was delicious. Servings were huge so be careful ordering too many dishes. We ended up bringing the leftovers home which was perfectly fine.

The waitress was very friendly but the food was disappointing. We ordered the veal with lemon and butter and added pasta with it. The dish was so dry and not a lot of veal. The waitress did try to get us more sauce but by the time it came everything was cold.

Evert year a group of friends get together at the end of the Summer for a great dine and Carmine's never disappoints. This year we got there early and figured we would have to wait but it was not a problem and we were seated. The staff was great, the food was served hot and the portions were outstanding. We are already planning our next trip to Atlantic City and to Carmine's..

I have been to Carmine's NYC but Carmine's AC was like 200 time better! I know that sounds crazy but from the great attentive service to the food. Just absolutely exceptional. The food tasted so fresh and wonderful! It makes me wish I lived nearby, I would never leave.

Our waiter was good. The runners who bring out food better get educated better on what they are doing and/or bringing to the table. We ordered Veal Saltimboca and he brought Chicken Saltimboca. We knew it right away as the plate was put down. We told the runner this is not Veal. He then stuttered and said it’s veal.. no it’s chicken.. and again back to veal.. I said don’t insult my intelligence and get the manager and he said ok. The manager came by and apologized for the error. I told the manager I am not upset with the error but don’t have your runners insist what good is when it isn’t as if I am the stupid one. The manager comped us dessert and coffee and said it in front of the waiter. So you all know what happens next. I get the check and they charged me for dessert and coffee. Not good Carmine’s. Time for education and school to some of your wait staff.

As always Our favorite food was delis! That is the stuffed artichokes and the bolgonese with spaghetti. We always try something different as well. We tried the crusted Salmon (excellent ) but the seafood pasta dish with white sauce was very disappointing. Will not order that again.

I mean I would recommend it definitely but after being a long time patron of the upper side location I’m talking knowing the original owner by name hosting my son’s graduation party there and celebrating many milestones there the food at the AC location was horrible the penne ala vodka was over cooked the wings was undercooked the clams was burnt smh not impressed at all I’ll take it as a bad night but I definitely won’t go there again because as we all know Carmine’s prices are too high to be taking a chance on so called bad nights with prices like that you want superbness all the time

Food and service was very good. Lots of food on the platters but wish I would have ordered a second pasta or meat dish because there were six of us and one pasta and one meat platter wasn’t enough. Otherwise everything else was great!

Carmine’s is our go-to place when we visit Rhe Tropicana! The food is always amazing and fresh. Our waiter from our last visit remembered us and treated our party like family from the moment we walked in! It is never a disappointment coming here. My only recommendation would be to make a dinner reservation beforehand. However, the food is definitely worth the wait!

It was for my sons 16th Birthday, we decided to celebrate in AC. He loves everything about being down here from the views of the boardwalk, the stores and most importantly the dining. The restaurant and staff were very welcoming and went above and beyond for the requests we had made for my sons birthday. The food was so outrageously good, that we actually took the leftovers home. Our waiter was pleasant and actually went into detail with us about the menu and any specials. He also had them make the special for us without the eggplant. He made my sons birthday and our dining experience that much better for us all. The customer service he showed was absolutely amazing. I have been a retail manager for over 12 years now and people with the can do attitude and hospitality he showed for his customers that night, proved to me that there are people out there who genuinely still value there job and do what it takes to provide a great / exceptional customer service. I thank you for hiring such a pleasant man and even more thankful that he was our waiter.
