Italian
Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. Restaurateur Artie Cutler crafted Carmine's with a singular vision; bringing his guests abundant portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast. Platters of made to order pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing among friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's!

    Food was great! Especially the shrimp scampi! but I would not recommend for a large party . Did not accommodate us well at all , took us an hr to get bread brought to the table . constantly forgetting meals for the children and drinks for the table . Then near the end of our time there the waiter disappeared and didn’t see him again at all . While we were trying to locate our waiter other servers respond rudely and we had to contact the manager just to be able to pay the bill. Our reservation was at 2:30 we left at about 5:45/6 because of the poor service .

    we had a group dinner that unexpectedly grew from 10 to 14 and the manager and other staff worked tirelessly to accommodate us and had us moved to another table in 10 minutes. Great service!

    Portion sizes are huge! Meant to be family style however wait staff indicated each dish would serve 4 people. We felt the dishes would serve 6-8 easily. Ordered way too much.
