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.

Perfect, I do think tho that the clam sauce was more or a garlic pasta. Could have more clams in it

Carmine's is the best place to dine in Atlantic City. Everything was great from the moment we walked in. Food is amazing. We are going to try the one in NYC next.

Terrible experience. The waiter was not personable, barely gave us any information about the menu and answered questions very brief. The waiter was barely at our table and had to find him for more drinks, silverware and a wine glass. Yes, he gave my wife a glass of wine in a small water glass and never provided the wine glass. We are also rushed. Overall it was NOT worth it. I will not return

Did not have to wait for service. Food and service was excellent, however, dinner for one person was not a choice on the menu. Will definitely have another person next time.

Our visit to Carmines was excellent as usual. We entertained friends who have never been to a Carmines and I think you will have some new customers in the future.

When I made the reservations I stated that it was a special occasion "My Husband's birthday" It was never acknowledged. The waitress "Kate" Never checked on us for beverage refills, we had to ask another employee for them. We were never told that the Ceasar salad dressing was made with anchovies which made it very fishy. THIRD TIME WAS NOT A CHARM

Food was great. I recommend the ceasear salad, it was fresh & the dressing was delicious. The linguini & clams were ok- nothing to write about but the chicken parm was filling, cheesey with tasty sauce but not too much of anything it was just right! Service was okay, our waiter refilled my husband's soda without asking but when I asked for water I never received it
& didn't see him again until after I was finished eating and still no water. I am not a soda drinker I always order water but should still receive the same service. It was the end of the night so maybe he just wanted to leave. The busboy was great & we had a good laugh with him. My husband realized when we got back to our hotel that he left his phone on the table and we rushed back to get it, thankfully it was turned into the manager and we were able to pick it up! We tried calling & calling and hit every option but you can't get through everything goes to another automated list or voice-mail. So thankful it was turned in! Honest workers!

Celebrating my sons 21st birthday. Food was delicious and plenty of choices for all. They told us originally they can only have us sit 90 minutes but they did not rush us. They took there time serving the food, taking pictures and talking. Definitely love Carmine’s!

Haven’t been in years and was very disappointed with our meal and dessert. Ordered linguini with clams.
It was so salty and the pasta was under cooked . Also had the stuffed mushrooms. They had a really odd sweet taste to them.
We did have the wings which were amazing and the Chicken Marsala was really good. For desert we had the cheese cake for two. It was nothing special and mediocre. We left half of it.
Really bummed as I was really looking forward to coming back.
It wasn’t busy and maybe they have lost some of their chefs. It was one my favorite restaurants.

Excellent service and food was delicious. We absolutely loved it. Was a special someone’s birthday and they brought ice cream with a candle. Cute gesture and greatly appreciated. Only thing was they serve in family portions (large servings) and we couldn’t try multiple dishes, as food would have been wasted amongst the 2 of us. Will go back for more!

Delicious authentic Italian food served family style which was so much fun! The service experience from beginning to end was world class. Thank you to your staff for attentive service & relaxed pacing! Cocktails & wine were bountiful. We were seated near the open air windows & enjoyed watching the lively strollers buzz about. Great location near shops & steps to gambling floor. Will be back!

Generous family style servings. We were only two and ate most of our food. My only concern is the saltiness of the spaghetti and tomato sauce. Veal was tender and Strawberry Shortcake was amazing!
