Great Food....Great Service...
Family style is awsome. Each dish is enough for 3-4 people to have a decent portion. We get 2-3 dishes to share and is plenty for 4 of us.

I was impressed that they had special menus for various diets, including vegan/vegetarian, gluten-free, egg-free, and dairy-free. I'm vegan, and we had one person in our group who is gluten-free, so we were able to order a vegan, gluten-free pasta dish that we could all share. The gluten-free pasta was made of corn, and delicious.
It would have been nice if there were more choices for vegans. They had the standard things you would expect: salads, side vegetables, and a few different pastas. If they would add things like vegan mozzarella cheese, or Gardein "chicken," there would be a lot more choices for vegans.

We really enjoyed the food and beverages at Carmine's and everyone raved about the food. The shrimp cocktail was great, the salmon picatta was excellent, the "Tug Boat" was huge and the Mayor said it was the best bread pudding he has ever had! Kudos to Donna for making our night at Carmine's memorable!!

Thanks :)

Service was excellent, and the food was delicious. On one of the appetizers the clams were a little burnt, the waiter took them back and removed them from the bill. The rest of the meal was excellent, especially the seafood linguine. Would definitely go back.

We went to Carmines for a birthday dinner. We were seated in a quieter area in the restaurant. We ordered the Carmines salad, chicken Saltimboca, penne Alla vodka and a tugboat for desert. Our server Carmine sang along with other servers as a special treat. Very good meal, over all great experience.

I chose Carmine's to celebrate my birthday first with close friends and then again the next night with my beloved family. It was a pleasure dining on authentic family-style cuisine and the ambiance was as exciting as the eatery in New York City. My son chose the Chicken Parm, my brother's favorite was the ravioli and my niece the Seafood special. Pairing it with a white and red vinos made the evening more enjoyable.
Our server, Ed C., was fun and very knowledgeable of the menu. Thanks Ed C,!!

 (Miami)·Dined on November 8, 2017

The food was very good but it is family style so portions are Hugh and expensive. I would only go back if I knew we all wanted to eat the same thing . We had to order too many items because of different food preferences so we had a very large bill ($400 for 5 adults and one child with one bottle of wine and one cocktail) . Tons of leftovers but we were staying in a hotel so not really helpful. Food was very good though.

Food was good, service was good. Food came out quick. The only negative was that our table was way too small . We had reservations and we were sat at a table where we were all squished in and was back to back with the table behind us. There was 8 of us at a table meant for 6. Overall, it was satisfactory.

The food was good, our waitress was nice, however, she never came back to ask how we were doing, if we wanted another drink, more bread, etc, we had to flag her down so we could get another drink. The noise level was a little loud for me. I really wasn’t into the sharing food either. I put that I would not recommend this restaurant strictly because it wasn’t for me, however, if I thought someone with different taste than me would enjoy it, I would tell them about it.
