    The problem with this Carmines on this visit was the rudeness of the manager in charge. He was very rude to us when we requested to have our seat moved from the hallway behind the wall of the main dining area. He claimed it was a big issue to move us, meanwhile the dining room had plenty of tables, also we made reservations in advance to secure a table. Absolutely no reason to have an attitude with us over a table, I am certain that he would not sit in the table he were first offered. He also did not seem to care if we made a formal complaint.

    Had an 8:15 reservation. We arrived at 6:00 and luckily they could seat us outside the restaurant. It was fun to people watch. Baked clams, chicken parm and garlic bread with melted cheese was delicious. We didn’t care for the bolognese sauce it was too heavy with too much meat in it. Service was excellent.

    Very loud difficult to hear. Food very good. Our server Jasmin was excellent. More than we could have hoped for. She definitely made our e perience fabulous. We could not have asked for better. She was so sweet and u understanding and helpful to my mom. Value on some food items not worth the family style.

    Ordered linguini with white clam sauce. The restaurant was not crowded. We waited for a very long time for the food. When it finally arrived, it was cold. We asked the waitress to heat it up for us. When it was returned to us it was fine.

    We had reservations for 7:30 pm and didn’t get seated until after 8:30 pm after watching several parties who arrived after us be seated. We had to speak to the hostess/manager 4 times. At first we were told they were sanitizing the table and we were “on the list”. We were only seated after expressing our discontent to the manager for the 4th time. He told us he was trying but he had “one thousand” reservations that night. We were unhappy with the way we’re were treated.

    Food and service is great. Each dish is plenty of food to share with the family. They warn you about the plate sizes but you still want to try several dishes. My only suggestion to the restaurant would be to offer some smaller portions for smaller groups or a sampler maybe. Overall fantastic everyone was happy and took leftovers home.

The atmosphere is so welcoming and friendly … you feel like a regular. Our server, Giuseppe, was outstanding.
