We ordered out from Carmine’s as we had a large party. The food was still warm and fresh after the 4 block walk. The eggplant parmigiana is outstanding and I highly recommend it. Spaghetti and meatballs was also excellent.
Next visit we will eat at the restaurant.

I finally made it to Carmines on my third trip to New York and my one regret is that I did not try them sooner. We arrived around 6:30 and we seated immediately. They brought us a bread basket and the bread was amazing. Because it was only two of us, we ordered Calamari and the double rack of lamb with roasted vegetables in red wine reduction sauce. OMG...the food was delicious! The calamari was perfect and the rack of lamb was delicious and the sauce was out of this world. Carmines will definitely be on my list my next visit to NYC.

I’m Italian and I was curious about the “spaghetti with meatballs” an Italo/American dish (this may sound weird but in Italy we don’t use to eat that dish)
and I found it very delicious and surprisingly very cheap.
I liked this restaurant and the staff was very kind and patient with me and my bad english!

Wow is all I can say. We were not able to get reservations but when we called the restaurant we were told we could come in and wait for a table, hoping not to have to wait real long, we decided to take a chance. We had been told by many friends it was a fabulous restaurant. Even though the sign on the door said "reservations only" we went in and explained we were told to come to wait for a table and they put us on the wait list. The wait was not too long and was well worth it.
The waiter came to our table almost immediately and was so pleasant. He explained it was family style and that we would only need 1 entree for the 2 of us. He was so correct. The veal parmesan with angel hair was wonderful. There was more than enough for the 2 of us and we actually left a lot since we could not finish everything. We were not disappointed.
Well worth the wait.
