We had a very enjoyable dinner. Food was great. Service was great. We will definitely return! I am Italian and am reluctant to eat Italian food in a restaurant... this was authentic and really delicious!

The food and service and location was very nice. This was our first experience at Carmine’s! My only comment is that there must be lots of food being prepared that is wasted, especially for two people. We ordered the garden salad as an appetizer and veal Marsala. When the garden salad arrived, it was overflowing, and there was only so much we could eat knowing the veal Marsala was next. Who can bring any leftover food back to their hotel (and being attached to a resort), many of your patrons are staying at a hotel, with a small refrigerator and no microwave. Portions should be adjusted based on number of people at a table.

I must say we finished all of the veal marsala! The food was absolutely delicious! But there is only so much two people can eat.

Visited for the third time with friends.. service was HORRIBLE, always had to look for our server. The food was pretty bad too! Ordered the Sunday pasta special, baked ziti was very very dry, the faffali was mushy, and the lasagna was cold! Terrible choice! Chicken parm was ok, nothing to talk about. The best part of the dinner was the special salad we had.. that was absolutely delicious. Then the waitress knew she was terrible b/c she offered us free cannoli coupon she had for 3 free chocolate cannolis that were horrible as well.
Spent a lot of money and left there very very disappointed. Probably will never go back.

We sit down and after order was taken our waitress brought over glasses of water for the table, wife takes a sip of water and feels on her lips that the glass is actually chipped and almost cut her. The manager comes over and says oh sorry and that’s the end of it. The waitress never returned with a new glass. Seemed like every time we asked for anything it was an inconvenience for our waitress. Oh well maybe we will have better service next time.

Overall great everything! Hostess was a bit creepy and stared in our faces without moving for an uncomfortable while, told us we needed to cash out at the bar before she could seat us. She then stood there staring at us until we did! Very uncomfortable!

Carmine's is a traditional family style Italian restaurant with great food. The servings are huge (Family Style), the food consistently taste phenomenal, and the tables fill up quickly so you might want to make reservations ahead of time. Good for any occasion or no occasion at all.

This trip to Carmines was perfect for our Birthday Celebration. I have always enjoyed Carmines in AC, but on this trip was even better. The service is excellent and the food is to die for. I recommend trying everything on their menu at some point as each dish is better than the next. 10 out of 10 would go again.

Carmine's was a great decision for dinner. First, they called to confirm the reservation the day before, and when we arrived at the restaurant took us very quickly to our table. Our table had room to spare for the appetizers and meals we ordered. Drinks were AMAZING! I had the best sangria with dinner. Our waiters were very helpful in suggesting dishes and offering advice on how many plates to order for our group of 5 people. Everything was delicious!
