Food and service were great. Family style portions are great. A little noisy but that’s too be expected when dining almost anywhere on a Saturday night. We will definitely be back.
Simply put terrific. We enjoyed the food and the restaurant.
Great food as always . Although the servers weren’t that good this time And we have been there many times. Our waiter i asked for water several
Times and then the manager on duty was checking tables and i ended up getting the water from
Her. And there was a bus boy that kept trying to take our food before we were even finished with it. We will go back again but hopefully the service will be better.
Birthday dinner food was amazing
8 of us dined here Saturday night. The food was mediocre but highly recommend the artichoke starter. Nothing else was noteworthy. The waiter set the tone off poorly when he pushed back a few times on the amount of food we ordered saying that we didn’t order enough. It felt very pushy and made us all feel like we didn’t want to come back again. The other servers were friendly and accommodating so it’s a shame he tainted the evening for us.
Love the artichokes! Tastes like my grandmother used to make!
Had to wait 10 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation and the place was empty.
Great as always!
Great service!Excellent food and our server Renzo was the best!!!!
We have been going to Tropicana for some time and typically go to Il Verdi, but we were going with a group for a birthday and thought the "family style" and atmosphere would be a better fit. We had a wonderful dinner. Portions are huge and flavors were tasty. A good option for a group.
Our waiter, Donald, was fantastic! Food was great, will be back.
Great for large parties. Had a great time and experience. Service was great!!
Great food and great service. Would definitely recommend Carmine’s if you’re looking for some really good Italian!
We’ve been to Carmine’s a few times and have always left with a smile! Bring good friends and a big appetite!! Carmine’s will take care of both❤️
Carmines has a sauce thats so good its better than mine (by a little bit)
Great when in large group. Family style so order a couple of dishes and share between everyone.
we had a great time from the time we were seated until we finished our delicious dinner.
Great food served family style
Absolutely love Carmine’s it’s my favorite restaurant!
Started out with a negative but after that everything was great. Has to wait 45 minutes after arriving on time for our 9:00pm reservation. Frustrating. But after being seated everything was wonderful. Great service and food. Value for the money was pretty good.
I had a reservation and it was very crowded. They placed us at a table which was in the walk way which was not acceptable. The manager came to the table and advised that they are booked but he would try to find another table. Within 5 minutes they found another table out of the walk way which was perfect. Our waitress and Randy were excellent hosts which made the reservation even better especially after we had to wait 20 minutes after our 8:30 reservation. Carmine’s cleaned up the evening with excellent service. Thanks for making the night.
Great meal and the staff was incredible. We enjoyed everything from the food to the company we with
Showed up for 7pm reservation a little early. We were seated after 7:30. Girl at reservation stand was rude and ignoring us. We were a party of nine people. Our waitress and food were excellent
I had the best experience. My waiter was hilarious and told jokes to brighten up my tables day. I forgot his name but he was amazing. He made sure we had everything. I would definitely recommend to everyone.
Always good food and portions. Never disappointed with this restaurant
Great family style place! Awesome time with the family!
Great service and delicious food.
Everything was great. Service was wonderful, food was good. We did have a reservation for 8:30 pm and were seated at 8:50 pm. Other than that, everything was great.
my family has been there a couple of times before . food was very good . we went this past week to celebrate my daughters birthday . I was very surprised that the food was not very good .. Very disappointing . Don’t think i will be going back .
Everything was excellent! We are repeat customers who are never disappointed!
Carmine's is almost like being at the dinner table with my Italian family all over again. While it is loud in the restaurant, it's a fun atmosphere, the food is phenomenal, and the staff is friendly. You can tell that they work really hard to make your experience a great one. Not once did I see any of them standing still. They are all helping each other and working hard to make sure that their guests are well taken care of. There are lots of options for food, and the great part is because it is family style, you can sample some of everything. I would definitely return!!
Went there for a family dinner and once again I was NOT disappointed. Food and service were excellent.
Delicious Food....Portions were huge so If you are on a date for 2 I hope you both enjoy the same meal otherwise you will have a lot of leftovers. Great atmosphere
We ordered three dishes and the pasta never came out. Cesar salad, chicken dish and penne in vodka sauce were ordered and we never received our pasta dish! It was taken off the bill but we were left really disappointed.
The dessert was called a tug boat and it was not tasty and a real disappointment. It looked a lot better than it tasted. Next time we will stick to the tiramisu which we have ordered in the past. The tug boat was a sinker.
Delicious as always, I have never had a bad experience here.
I have been taking my family every year for Easter to Carmine’s and never once have I ever been displeased . Thank you!
The huge quantities of food was simply too much for two people. Sizing/pricing could be modified for a couple with the super sized platters saved for four or more diners. Quality of the meals selected was very good.
Food was excellent. Everything is Served in large family style serving dishes. We had spaghetti in bolognese sauce. Plenty for two with a take-home package.
Service was excellent !
Our easter dinner was terrible ! We had a party of 7 and the table they gave us didn’t even fit 4 people we had all dishes on top of us ! We could not enjoy the meal! Also one of the bus boys or servers spilled soda all over the back of my daughters chair and all over her jacket. NEVER AGAIN! Will go there
