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.

Food wasn’t as tasty as before. Seems like they’re cutting down on everything to catch up with Covid effects

The food is always amazing but the service wasn’t amazing. The host was rude and forgot that we were waiting and we had a reservation. But our waiter was amazing.

We were there(3 people) Morhers Day Dinner. We eat so many times different Italian restaurant this was the worst one we had. Pasta was not cook white sauce was terrible . It was so watery . There was no taste at all.
They did not even offer fresh parm on pasta. It took too long to get salt and pepper.
OverAl we were not happy on mothers day dinner.

I know Carmines is up front about recommending group reservations, but I thought they must have some accomodation for just couples. I was wrong. They serve the same huge platters at $35 a piece even if there are only two of you. The food is great, but this policy is not appreciated. You're going to pay a lot and take tons of food home for way more leftovers than you bargained for.

I loved carmines in the past, but the quality of the food has changed. Seafood and pasta were not fresh. Seafood was chewy and gummy and pasta super salty. Will not return until things get better.

The ARTICHOKES ARE BACK!!! YES!!!!
Andrew, our waiter was excellent. The food was spectacular. We ordered Meatballs and Pasta, Eggplant and the Artichokes. Everything was perfect.
The prices have gone up. Perhaps Carmines can consider reducing the portions and reducing the prices? That would allow a family of 3 to try a variety of things on the menu and have room for desert..
Thank You Carmines. You did great this time!

AT Carmine's you need to understand that everything is served family style, with entrees that serve at least 4. We were looking for something that would give us leftovers the next night, so it was perfect. Service was slow, but food excellent.

We normally are very pleased with Carmine's...we were not totally disappointed, the food was very good, portion sizes were good...but the start of the experience was a bit off-putting. As soon as we were seated, we were told we had an 1 1/2 hours to finish- not a warm & welcoming start. We do understand the issues that restaurants have been dealing with since the start of covid, but it still felt like an unwelcoming approach at the start of a positively anticipated dining experience. We had guests, that had never been there, so that added to our disappointment- we had really pumped them up about the experience they were about to have at Carmine's. There is a proper and positive way to say everything, and our service provider lacked in customer service skills. To conclude on a positive note: the food was very good and enjoyed by all....

Our experience at Carmine's in Atlantic City was wonderful. We had a lovely meal the meatballs are superb!!!! Our waiter was wonderful and very patient with our very talkative 7 year old as it was her birthday, and she was excited about eating at a" big girl fancy restaurant". I would recommend Carmine's to everyone it will not disappoint!!!

Food was great and came in at a reasonable time. Our server did not pressure I in ordering more dishes. For a party of 5 (2 adults, 4 kids) 2 pasta dishes were more than enough. Same great quality food that makes us come back over and over again!
