About Carmine's - Atlantic City
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. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. If you are in the market for better than average family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.

Carmine's - Atlantic City Ratings and Reviews
I've been to Carmine's in the city a few times, and the Atlantic City location a couple of times. Both have always been great experiences! The portions are HUGE, and served family style. The wait staff is great, as they'll help guide you through ordering the right amount of food--yet, you'll likely still go home with a doggie bag! Great food, good service, and an atmosphere that makes you feel like you're sitting around the dining table with family--awesome!
Chicken Contadina (absolutely phenomenal!)
Garlic Oil Pasta
Prime Rib Special (when they have it)
We were very happy with our visit to Carmine's. Drinks at the bar first then right onto dinner. I know its family style but for two people it's a lot of food. I just feel like it gets wasted because it's soooo much food. I definitely will be eating ravioli for lunch for a couple of days. We will be happy to eat here again.
Loved everything we ordered the lobster fra diablo was outstanding the presentation was amazing the taste impeccable and was enough for 6 people . Not our 1st time there won't be our last. We took friends they were quite impressed. The family style ambience made for a good time also
We were very happy with the meal, however we ordered the cold antipasto for an appetizer and it was very disappointing. It was definitely not put together or created with the same Italian energy and passion for food that the other food (that we have experienced at Carmines) is served. On the other hand, the service was top notch! Our server was Anthony and he was not only attentive to our every need but pleasant and entertaining. He brings a new level of professionalism and class to the restaurant. Wonderful experience!

I loved the old Italian dining style. The family style portion was perfect for the amount of people we had. Both dishes we ordered were very good and I liked the bread variety with dipping sauce. Our server was very friendly and attentive. The only negative was that it was a little too dark in the restaurant and made us feel a little sleepy.
We were 2 so we did not order a lot of different items (portions large).
Chicken cutlets were seasoned well, but cooked just too long as they were on the "hard" side.
Eggplant Parm was super ! Doesn't get any better than at Carmines!
We both are excellent cooks and the food here is very good for the best part of it all. The drinks really are sooo over priced !!! If Carmines would just tone it down a bit..... Once word got around...... You won't be able to get a reservation !
Still, a good selection for dinner in Atlantic City.
Excellant choice. We had a wonderful meal and Vincent took care of us. He made sure the food didn't come out on top of our appetizers. Very leisurely dinner. As usual the stuffed artichokes were amazing. The Rigatoni Vodka, Chicken Parm, and salmon were delicious. We had tons of leftovers which we had for days. We are regulars.
I love Carmine's!! Whenever my children and grandchildren visit from out-of-town they want to go to Carmine's. I had lunch on March 9, 2017 to celebrate my best friend's birthday. It was her first visit to Carmine's. She was so pleased and excited. The food was magnificent, the service was impeccable and the ambience warm and friendly. Carmine's in Atlantic City is a true treasure. Will be returning very soon.
Been to a lot of the Carmine's locations for dinners over the years, but had lunch for the first time there during Atlantic City restaurant week. Our server, Madalina, was OUTSTANDING. I have food sensitivities and she went above and beyond to ensure what I was eating would be safe - and even let me know what is brought in to the restaurant and from where. Very knowledgable, friendly, and attentive (without hovering). We ordered a bottle of the Montepulciano, and sat there until we finished it - and were never rushed. Great restaurant week menu ($15.17 app, entree, dessert) and still huge portions.
Carmine's never disappoints. We always have a fantastic time and the food is over the top wonderful. Even though it is family style and the portions are for 4 people, my husband and I go by ourselves and eat what we can and wrap up the rest for another dinner.
This was my second visit at Carmines and I love the place. The host and workers were very professional and friendly. Did not have to wait long for drink or food. Each dish was excellent and reasonable. I enjoyed the atmosphere and will be coming back with additional family members.
