    Lotsa Food - Nothin' Else

    Three of us were there on 5/14 as we were told "it's a great place" - yeah, well ... we'll never go there again. Food is served family style, meaning lots and lots of it; ours were regular salad ($9.50) and spaghetti with huge meatballs ($21+). The food was good & plenty of it, so no complaint there. The guy outside said a 1-1/2- to 2-hour wait, but you can sit at the bar & get served from the full menu. We got lucky & got a seat as we entered, but waited & waited for a waiter/ress; we finally flagged someone & were told "you have to order from the bartender." Okay, but the menu is on a wall (away from where we were seated) - so we get up & almost lose our seats. My daughter had to go to the bar, order our food, go back for drinks, silverware, etc. Since it was a Sat evening & many people, we had to listen really carefully for our name, then go back to the bar for the salad, then again for the spaghetti. Young women were walking around calling out peoples' names for I guess dining in the real part of the restaurant. They really should have a PA system or the flickering/vibrating things to notify the parties. We never did see any other part of the restaurant; the restroom facilities were up a lot of steep steps, so we went to Toys R Us instead for that purpose. When we go to NYC next year, we will not frequent Carmine's.

    My Favorite NYC restaurant

    Going to Carmine's for dinner is an exciting outing for my husband and I. We plan it, get dressed up and treat it as a special night. We love the NY vibe inside the restaurant and it is ALWAYS busy but we don't mind because we enjoy having a drink at the bar before we are seated. We have had so many of the dishes on the menu and we recommend the calamari for sure, best we have ever had, the chicken marsala is divine and the sausage and broccoli with rigatoni is delish. You can not go to Carmine's and not order the salads, they are all excellent. The only dish I didn't love was the chicken parm because my husband makes a killer parm at home and it just didn't compare.

    La Bella Italia!

    Our waiter came immediately to meet us. The menu (on the wall) is extensive and (almost) everything comes in family-sized portions. We ordered three entrees for the six of us (a little overboard, but it's so hard to decide!) We ordered linguine with white clam sauce, angel hair with sausage and meat sauce, and veal picatta (veal in lemon and butter sauce). We also ordered a house salad. The bread came first and was a basket filled with a variety of different kinds of Italian breads, everything from rolls to different kinds of focaccia. The salad was huge, heaped on a platter with a good variety of vegetables including cucumber, tomatoes, pepperoncinis, olives, onions, lettuce, etc. The linguine with white clam sauce was the best I've had in a long, long time...probably ever. A lot of times, when you order white clam sauce, you get olive oil, clams, and some parmiagiana cheese that slithers off the noodles into a pool on the plate. Not so at Carmine's. It was very tasty, the clams were huge, and the sauce stuck to the noodles just right. It was clam sauce heaven and I had two helpings! The veal which was incredibly good. We were offered six slices of veal in lemon and butter sauce. It was tender, delicious, and disappeared very quickly. After supper, we had canollis and cappucino. The canollis are made with a chocolate dipped shell and dusted with pistachios, just as they should be. Very yummy indeed! There is a dessert called the Titanic, but we didn't dare attempt it. I asked the waiter what it was, and it sounded like enough ice cream and chocolate to certainly leave you ten pounds heavier. We decided not to risk it. Make a reservation, or be prepared to wait. But its worth it. It is far and away the best Italian food I've ever had in Manhattan.

    Perfect Evening

    My husband and I recently visited the city on our honeymoon. One evening, we saw Phantom of the Opera and at at Cramine's, a perfect evening! The food was wonderful and the staff was more than happy to snap pictures of us! We also got to sit right in front of a window, looking out into the city! It was a memorable and wonderful evening! I can't wait to return to the city and to Carmine's!

    Best Pasta in New York

    Carmine's is without a doubt the best Italian restaurant in the city. The large pasta dishes make great for a family or big group. A loud and fun atmosphere, No wonder the wait is usually an hour plus. I love this place and I will definitely be back.

    Specials without prices

    We ordered a lobster and seafood over linguine from the waiters list, he failed to mention it was an outrageous $95! It consisted of 3 lobsters cut apart, several clams, mussels, and maybe 1 1/2 filets of haddock, and then about 3-4 lbs, yes no exagerartion, of linguine and a watery tomato sauce. It made the whole experience sour, when we asked about the price we were spoken to like it was an insult to even inquire. The meal overall was average, best dish being the salad. We might never go back, there might be more mind blowing surprises.

    Poor Service, Decent Food

    I had heard about Carmine's from several people upon arriving in New York, and decided to try it. I have never received such poor service. The waiter was unhappy and unfriendly, walked away when I ordered a drink, and never came back after we started or finished our meal, only after he dropped the check. We waited 25 minutes after dessert for our check even though he had been around our section several times! Management didn't seem to care much either. The food is decent, though.
