The food and atmosphere here is always great! The portion sizes are huge if you are solo like I was on this visit but sooooo worth it. I’ll give my leftovers to the homeless. I sat at the bar (a requirement for the smaller lunch...More

We went with another family for dinner Christmas Eve so the restaurant was very busy. Carmine's has an attractive interior similiar to Maggiano's without the large chain restaurant feel. The food is also a notch better. The hardest part is coordinating the meal -- all...More

First visit here. We sat in the high top tables in the bar as the main restaurant was a little busy. Alezsha was a great bartender and server. She had great recommendations for a family of three. Pastas were delicious. We had tartufo for dessert....More

Come hungry. The food was absolutely scrumptious and the service was on point! We were a party of 14 and we never had to ask for refills. The only downfall was the $26 Parking garage fee.

This is a very large facility. I expect they can accommodate groups, as long as you call ahead.

Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. The Carmine's concept is to bring its guests a "wow-factor" sized portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast. Platters of homestyle antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing amongst 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.
