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 had a reservation for 9 people at 6:30 we were celebrating my Daughter in Law completion of The Ironman 70.3 she swam, biked and ran 70 .3 miles in under 7 hours. As you could imagine she had quite an appetite for Carbs. We arrived 1/2 hour early and they sat us right away.
After we finally paired down our order to six dishes there is so much on the menu, having said that we were hoping we ordered enough.
Well it was amazing,. Everything is family style and we had more food then we could eat. The staff and service was great the food was like what mother made! ( Ok I'm Jewish ). But Italian and Jewish mother's never let you leave hungry. The place is great!!
If you have never gone to Carmine's you have to go, I have brought my wife alone and it was good but you have to go with an army to get the Full experience.
We had a reservation for 6pm and we did not get in until 7pm. Spoke to the manager and he said there were no tables available but they were taking party's of 12 and 14. I told him we had this reservation for 6 pm and he said you will have to wait or go somewhere else. The girls at the desk said they don't go by reservation on Saturday night . I was very disappointed with the service we received and I will never go back.
I had a 545 pm reservation on a Saturday night and I did not get seated until after 7 pm. I had a show att 8 pm which I was late too. I have to say the waitress did a great job at getting our food and drinks out quickly and the food was very good. Also they had no tables inside so we had no choice but to
Sit outside the restaurant which we were not happy about since there is really no atmosphere there and we could not have dessert because we got seated sooo late! If you do go plan on waiting a long time and they did not allow any walk ins.
EXCELLENT!!! Always so good!! Nice and hot, We had the chicken parm, the alla vodka sauce was soooo good, we had a side of meatballs all. Everything is served family style. I love there frozen margaritas there. The bread basket was delish also. The service is very nice.
Food, service, and overall experience was excellent! The waiter's recommendations were spot on. We had pasta with Ragu and the chocolate bread pudding. Plenty to take home for next day. Had a great time, especially since the waiter, Donald, was very attentive and really cared about our service. We'll be back!
The concept is really cool. Tbe dishes are meant to be shared as for the portions are HUGE. Might be a food waste for two people if you can't bring back the food. Quality price is very good. The meatballs are to die for.
I had Don as the waiter. I couldn't have asked for a better waiter. He was informative, funny and very nice.
We waited for our food only to receive it cold. Sent the food back and again waited about 20 mins for hot food. The restaurant wasn't too crowded at 4:30, but there was a shift change. I would not go back again as the food was ok but not worth the high price.
The reservation was set and Carmines was waiting for our party to arriv.e. Without any time to lose we were sitted immediately. The portions are no joke when they say family style they mean it. After the delicious chicken parmigiana and the chef four pasta special there was still a large take out bag. Finished with Italian cheese cake and cannoli this is how dinner should be every night. Highly recommend
Extremely noisy and as a result not enjoyable. Table of 12 next to us were literally screaming. Ridiculous. No one in management approached this table to ask them to be respectful of surrounding guests. We were not the only table affected by this nonsense. Carmine's should value all guests and provide a pleasant atmosphere.
I have been to Carmine's in the past but it had been a few years. I was with a large group for my friend's bachelorette party. The food was delicious and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. I did not like the gentleman (I think a manager possibly) who twice was very pushy in trying to usher me away from the host stand. I understand that it is an area that they may be trying to keep clear, however, he was quite rude. Also, the second time he was trying to move me, we were actually standing there because we were about to be seated. I think he needs to worry a little more about his customer service and people skills and a little less about pushing people aside.
One of the platters I ordered was veal marsala. Many times in New York, this was my favorite choice. However, in AC the meat was very chewy and not tender like expected. This was disappointing for me. I must say that the staff was very friendly and nice, they deserve a lot of credit.
Gr8 experience! We had a group of 17 and it was if there we were just a family if 4! Incredible attention to detail for each order. Our waiter was Carmine (yes that is his real name :) ), and he was not only fun, he took excellent care of my daughter's order. She has a dairy allergy and his knowledge of the allergy menu suggestions for her and were very appreciated. Well done Carmine's!!
We are longtime Carmine's patrons ...New York and Atlantic City... last evening's dinner in Atlantic City was, in the only way I can describe it as "FANTASTIC" !!!! ..Greg our server for over 10 years ( be sure to request him " is amazing bordering on perfection! Carmine's salad..Stuffed Artichoke and Shrimp Fra Diavlo over Angel hair pasta.. outstanding. Greg introduced us to the Chef and the Manager.. told them how awesome our evening was! Bravissimo!!
What can I say? I absolutely love Carmines! I've been going to the original location since before my 22 year old was born. Enough said!! Nothing compares! My favorite dish is the Veal Marsala, and for the first time I had the red Sangria! It was the best I've ever had!
Love you guys!!!!
Hello Carmines. I would like to say that dinner was fantastic especially that I'm Italian who grew up in a family that can cook. Food was excellent. The waiter was very helpful & polite. I like that he asked if anyone had any allergies before taking our order. The wait wasn't bad at all, the hostess said 10-15 min when we first arrived and she was very accurate. Definitely would come back and of course bring a group of people since it's family style. I will be back with my family that's for sure. Making reservations is the way to go & made it alot easier by doing it online. We might be scheduling an outing with a group of friends (couples) sometime in the near future, so hopefully you guys can give us a good discount! Haha...But thanks again for the great experience. Molto Grazie!!! Ciao!!!
Prices have definitely gone up in the last year which makes it really hard to justify coming back. The chicken parmigiana now costs $34 and is really just two chicken breasts pounded flat and split.
The food is good, but for my wife and I to get the carmines salad $32, the chicken parm, no drinks just water, and tip... it cost us $80 for what we could get most other places for easily half that.
First time there. Very over priced food and sauce was over spiced, too hind something I guess. We had the chicken parm. Three thin large pieces of chicken with too much cheese. Lot of garlic on all food. Also had mussels. They were very large. Large is not good because they hold all junk inside. Waitress didn't inform us that the Budweiser was not on tap when we ordered, came out with a bottle, not happy. Only good thing was we were by the Trop walkway in the front corner so it wasn't noisy there. But the main dining area was very noisy, crazy.
Not recommended, better place for Italian food
