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.

i knew what i was about to get into when i booked a reservation at CARMINES. previously had dinner at CARMINES in new york in 2016. it was incredible and it turned out the same in A.C. Im from an italian mother who i considered a chef. in 1958 she spent four days in ALFREDOS kitchen in rome. they taught each other a few dishes. If she could have witnessed CARMINES, she would have raved, Im sure..................thank you....CARMEN FEE.

Large portions feed 2-3 served family style. Our party of 3 wanted 3 different entree's so we had excessive "take home". Better value if some members of the party want the same item. Recommend review the menu prior to making reservations.

Your staff was wonderful.
One of my guests received a dirty plate which was an accident but it still turned her off.
Our party of four agreed that the spinach under the lemon chicken was too salty.
We all enjoyed our meal and had a pleasant dinner. Thank you.

Had stuffed artichoke, terrible, way to much garlic and the stuffing was like a stuffing you’d put inside a turkey and mussels, quality was good. Not worth the trip

I love Carmines-overall great food, savory and delicious. Here are a couple of things I didn't like: waiter pushing the most expensive dish (no price associated with steaks) -the total for 2 of us was about $350! He kept trying to pad up the bill- want any shots? Shots???! I don't appreciate that. Also, the free water tasted horrible.

This was our first time here. We were celebrating my fiancé’s birthday. Everyone was from the hostess to the servers and managers were very nice. We placed our order . The food came out in a timely manner. However we didn’t get our appetizer as we were served our entree first which was no big deal. The manager noticed and took it off our bill but they still brought it out to us. The food was delicious and monstrous proportions. This is a family size restaurant so on entree can serve 2-3 maybe 4 people. Overall this was a great experience from start to finish. We definitely will be going back with the family.

We went to Carmine's for our anniversary dinner. It was fabulous! The food was delicious and the portions are hefty! Honestly, we had enough food on one plate to eat dinner and two more meals EACH with the leftovers. When they say family style they really mean it! Our server Emmanuel was a pure delight. He was attentive and patient and even brought us ice cream to celebrate. We would do this again in a heartbeat.

We made our reservation because Carmine’s was listed as a participant in the Atlantic City Restaurant Week. We arrived and were seated and when the waiter VINCENT…arrived I explained we were scheduled in the Restaurant Week Special. He said he has no idea what I meant…..he said he went to the manager and questioned what I had said and he came to the table and said the manager said they were not participants. The manager never came over, and I showed Vincent the listing for 2021 participants and Carmine’s was on the list. We ordered anyway…we travelled to AC from the Philadelphia area. It was my husband and I and were were celebrating our 50th anniversary. The waiter was nice and the food was okay….the price was a bit much for what we got. Would never go back! Dinner with no dessert over $110.00

The very best stuffed Artichokes and meatballs in the business.
Even the grated cheese on the table is great.
We love Carmines, and will probably never stop going there.

Overall a very good experience, just a couple of details that could be improved upon. We had a reservation, so check in was easy and our table was ready right on time. Service was very good, server was attentive and accommodating with a gluten intolerance. We ordered the zuppa de clams in white sauce and the ragu with gluten free pasta. Clams and broth were very flavorful, tons of garlic and fresh basil. Unfortunately, the clams had not been soaked long enough prior to cooking and some were a bit sandy. Also, the bay leaves were not removed from the dish prior to serving. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the ragu was delicious, tons of meat. However, we found pieces of string (either from the ends of the sausage or used to tie up the bracciole) in the sauce and the sausage was a bit overcooked. Still, overall, a great meal and we will be back next time we’re in town.

Our waiter, Kenny, was attentive, funny and very personable. He made our experience an A+! His service was matched by the tasty family style portions of chicken parmigiana, mixed green salad, pasta and meatballs. Four of ate and there was food left over. Of course we saved room for dessert. The chocolate tort was decadent. It was enough for 5 people. I took a few bites and brought the rest home.

Great experience. Highly recommend

Pricy, but we were at hotel in AC

My sister and I ordered the chicken parmesan over spaghetti end of the spaghetti was pretty good but I was very disappointed in the chicken parmesan. I had heard so much about Carmine's that I expected it to be excellent. Also we knew it was family style but when there's only two people a lot of food goes to waste.
