We almost had the restaurant to ourselves for lunch, but it didn't matter because the food was excellent. At the suggestion of the waiter, my husband and I shared a spaghetti bolognaise, and we ended up bringing enough home to both have it for dinner...More

Went to eat with my wife and daughter. Restaurant is quite "kitsch" in its décor, I mean lots of black and white pictures on the wall, basically the stereotypical Italian restaurant if you want. Being Italian this somehow puts me off, since it makes me...More

It was my last day in New York, and I wanted a taste of Italian food. Boy!, was my plate huge! I managed to eat only half, but I was warned. Very nice restaurant, and excellent service. Waiters, are top notch!

No trip to NYC is complete for our family without a trip to Carmine’s. On our most recent trip we weren’t able to get a reservation at the Times Square area location so tried the Upper West one. Bingo. And to make it even better,...More

Plenty to eat, even some to take home. A bit salty but overall good. Carmine's salad is wonderful -- super fresh and crunchy and scrumptious dressing. Very good service. I would only come again with a minimum of 8 people. 10 is probably even better....More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

The dish is served family style so with salad, bread and spaghetti and maybe an appetizer you should have more than enough food! Excellent spot!

Carmine's simple and very popular concept is to serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast - which means large portions of home-style antipasti, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on large platters designed for sharing. And when we say large, we mean large. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. Located in a sprawling, former grand ballroom on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, this is the original Carmines. Designed by Peter Niemitz, the interiors evoke the images of the quintessential New York restaurant. With elements and details from the 1920s to the 1940s, the restaurant has the look and feel of a place that has been around for much longer than it's 1990 opening. If you are in the market for freshly prepared family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.
