Great original Italian food. Lobby staff, hostesses and servers are very friendly and welcoming. Food is delicious and servers are knowledgeable about the menu and very efficient. Menu is extremely varied so you will not have a problem finding something good to eat.

Absolutely love this place and have been several times but went with my girl on a Saturday night and they had live music. The music was way too loud and ruined any conversation that you wanted to have. Was very frustrating and sort of ruined the experience.

Had the eggplant parm, had no flavor. Waiter was slow and it wasn't busy.
Had to ask the busy boy to get waiter about getting more drinks. Same with just getting
more water. No one was on top of anything. Very poor service

I had family in town from Seattle and we had such a great experience. The service was absolutely the best, even the manager came over on a couple occasions to chat. This is a great place to come... just as long as you enjoy great food and great service! 😃

Carmine’s never disappoints! Service is great, food incredible, & large enough portions that plenty of leftovers were eaten the next day. Get a reservation in advance so you don’t have to wait & enjoy your meal.

We didn’t get seated at our reservation time, but it was one of the busiest days of the year for brunch. Other than that glitch and delay with the hostess stand everything else was great. Great server and food is always great at Carmine’s!

Easter Brunch was to die for! Couldn't believe the variety of selections to choose from. I had to try them all. Food was hot and fresh, not what I am used to for a buffet. Oh, did I mention delicious? The staff was VERY attentive, best I have experienced in a long time. Management was up front and engaged.

Just amazing! We had Easter brunch here and were blown away by the brunch. Great staff and amazing food! Best french toast I've ever eaten or ever will in my life! They had both traditional Italian foods as well as all the normal breakfast goodies as well. The staff was wonderful...I couldn't recommend Carmine's more. I've also eaten at their location in NYC...also fantastic. You can't go wrong.

I have been a "regular" since Carmine's, as part of the Rosebud Family, opened in 1994. The management and wait- and kitchen-staff not only meets but also most often exceeds my expectations for good quality and well prepared food and service. They go the extra mile to meet my dietary needs and most often are agreeable to the substitutions or other modifications to my entrees. The Zupa di Mare is always great and has a good balance of the various shellfish and fish to pasta. For those who do not like a spicy sauce, you can always request the marinara and to make it more "di Mare," I order the Mussels appetizer to the entree.

Kitchen was slow, appetizer was very late which delayed entrees coming out. Steaks came out overdone as they sat for a bit.
