Food was good but the service was fantastic. From greeting and our service during dinner was excellent. Thank you for making our time so
Had the fried calamari for appetizer which we've never had but some what enjoyed, just wouldn't get again. For dinner we had the spaghetti and meatballs which was delicious, plenty of leftovers! Complimentary Bread basket and garlic oil were great. Server was nice but the service could've been a little quicker due to how empty it was... Recommend coming with 3 or more people due to big portions and high prices.
We were celebrating our friends birthday. Dinner was wonderful. We enjoying going to Carmine’s .
Debbie & Sal
The food was great. Always enjoy their bolognese sauce with penne. The chicken scarpariello was cooked just right.
Bachelor party..Food and service were amazing.
Service was good. Always nice for big family meal just forgot how loud it is !!!
The food and the service is second to none.
Your food is always delicious and hot and your glass is never empty. The waiters go above and beyond and are equally excited about your dining experience. Everyone takes pride in their job and is always smiling and friendly.
Excellent service and our waiter was excellent. Knew his menu like the palm of his hand. Can’t wait to go back. Thank you!!
Amazing server. If you buy one plate it’s enough for 6 people. Drinks on point. Will definitely be back soon.
Visited with coworkers who have never been to Carmine’s and as usual everything was top notch!
It was restaurant week. Our dinner was a very good value. Way too much food.
Delicious and everyone was so friendly and accommodating
The restaurant week lunch was primarily macaroni. Out rigatoni was excellent. Our server Kayla must have been new as she seemed overwelmed at times. We will be back when we will try the regular menu-
We very much enjoyed our dinner, it’s hard for two people due to the volume of food.
The food was very good. Extremely large portions. The chicken contadina for two could feed up to four or five people. The atmosphere was nice, but very noisy. The service was just sub-par. Our waitress was forgetful because they were too crowded. We waited for 50 minutes to be served and we sent some of our food back to the kitchen to be cooked more thoroughly as the sausage and potatoes were under cooked. However, the food was still very good.
Plenty of food here. Make sure you go hungry! Went for lunch during restaurant week. For $15.18 it's an unbelievable deal. Stuffed mushrooms were good. Ravioli also good and they gave me a lot! Tiramisu is nothing special but typical can also be good.
I am spoiled as my Italian wife makes a lot of homemade food so I am being objective.
The portions here are huge. Good atmosphere and friendly service too.
I only wish they had homemade pasta here as some other places in AC have.
Went for lunch. The food was perfect. The only thing better was the service. Great time.
It was a great meal. Atmosphere was terrific. We did sit down and wait about 15 minutes before our waitress came over to even give us water. It was very busy at the time and probably not enough wait staff for crowd. Other than that I would highly recommend going there.
The place was a lot louder than what I expected. but that aside the wait staff was friendly and helpful. the fact that we made reservations was a plus as we were seated less than two minutes after we arrived. The appetizer we ordered the fried calamari was very generous in portion and quite yummy. Our main dishes were also huge in size as far as amounts of food go I must give Carmine’s a solid ten . The only slight of the evening was the penne pasta that accompanied my perfectly prepared veal parmigiana was not quite cooked enough and was sorta gummy in texture. A bit of a disappointment but not enough to keep me from returning in the very near future for there are several dishes I plan on trying next time or times as you can never eat all your food in just one shot. Overall I give Carmine’s a solid four stars outta five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The food is always delicious, but way too much! Just wish they had smaller portions to choose from for couples. The noise level on this visit was particularly LOUD! Our waiter & staff were great and very attentive.
the food is out of this world and I just love the Carmines salad
Always a great meal. Everyone must try the Carmine salad.
Delicious food, outstanding service, great for large get togethers. Carmine’s never disappoints!
It was my birthday celebration. We had great food loved the vodka sauce. The chicken cutlet was only 2 flattened pieces of chicken. Was a little disappointing because usually you get so much but I thought it was a little skimpy for the $35 or so price. Overall though it was a great night.
Just prior to arriving at the restaurant was informed that 4 of our group of 10 would not be coming to dinner. Told the hostess when I arrived and she quickly adjusted the reservation and sat us at our reserved time. The food was very good. Obviously the portions were quite large and you know that going in. Table of six had a large salad appetizer and 3 entrees which was plenty of food, so the high entree price is worth it. Had the house Chianti, was ok and I though a little pricey for what it was. The waiter and bus staff were excellent. Restaurant is loud. All in all very enjoyable experience. As a matter of fact we returned again the next night.
everything was great! Service, was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was great!
Wait staff were kind of rude. This was our first time at a Carmine's and no one mentioned the menu was on the wall. So we were sitting on our phones using an online menu because we waited 15 min for wait staff. Not sure if we will be returning.
Enjoyed the evening. Zuppa di clams was excellent as appetizer. Dinners are pricey but feed two to three. Could not get a side of spaghetti as they only do their $39 dinners. Finally gave us a small order of dry spaghetti, no sauce, for $8.95 and billed it as a child s portion. Seemed to be a big deal to do this, and we had to use some sauces from our existing dinners to dress it. Otherwise, very good experience.
Waiter was quite personable & knowledgeable of menu ,specials and suggestions. Food was ample, very tasty and reasonably priced for a party of 6. I shall return again; perhaps with another group of friends.
Carmine's is always very good. The food is overwhelming, of course, but with four people, two entrees seemed to work well.
Good fast Italian food nothing special. They were out of calamari big disappointment. Very pricey $35 for a plate of pasta and $37 for shrimp which does not include pasta. Not a fan of Carmines.
Superb meal. Great service! Real Italian.
Made reservation for wife’s birthday with friends and family never disappoints
Went for lunch. Much quieter. Good was very good. Chicken parm portion was smaller than usual but all else was good portions.
Once again awesome food and service. The staff is always friendly and very professional and cater to all your needs.
Birthday party of 12. Perfect place to enjoy family style meal which was perfect. Server was extremely helpful in running through the menu and figuring out what was best for our party.
Thank you Carmines for your hospitality.
Great food !!! AWSOME SERVICE
Great food and service! Had a reservation we showed up a few minutes late but they were kind and we only waited a few minutes. The waitress was friendly and explained everything to us since two of us had never dined there before. The four of us shared a Caesar salad and a chicken dish so that we wouldn’t be overly full and two didn’t want to eat pasta. The pasta with broccoli at the table next to us looked great, will try a pasta dish next time for sure!
Not good for two people who want two different entrees. Food was ok but not great. Ridiculously overpriced for two.
