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 have frequented Carmines in Atlantic City severall times ( even held a birthday party there for 40 people for my husbands 50th 6 years ago) - disappointed this time - very very noisy - felt like prices went up - server was not very knowledgeable - asked if we could leave our leftovers while we went to casino (we were staying at different hotel) server said yes and took leftovers and our cake (which was another disappointment) - we returned 1 1/2 hour later and were told our left over food was thrown away - they don't save it - why did our server take it from us then - we spent 50 dollars on a dish that was recommended too us and that ate only ate 1/4 of then they threw it out???!!!! cake was huge and a very large charge - told girl on phone is was for 8 ladies - think it was enough for 25!!! Felt like the service was rushed also - we were not in a hurry - not going anywhere - I like to enjoy my dinner and atmosphere - but not this time at Carmines - I don't know if I would go back - I stay at Borgata aloto now - Tropicana has gone down as well - I might just stay at that end of the city from now on for Dinner - or just go to Chef Vola for my Italian food - sorry

Carmine's is a wonderful place. We intially were placed by the front entrance which was busy and distracting. The hostess moved us to a more private location upon request.
The food was exceptional and the service was outstanding. The menu is very basic and delicious. There is something for both foodies and picky eaters.
Looking forward to going back soon!

I wish i would have gotten my servers name but he was awesome. I have been to carmines several times when i stay at the Tropicana and I've never had a bad experience. Food is always great. The service was really great- server took the time to explain the menu and helped us make selections that would benefit our party size. I felt like he really took excellent care of us. My only complaint might be that i requested a glass of wine and it gets served in a small tumbler looking glass instead of a proper wine cup but the wine itself was excellent! Was just surprised that it was served that way.

We were here for my friends bachelor party. I believe our server was either named don or ron,but man was he funny! we got the garlic bread, house salad, penne vodka, and 3 chicken parm dinners for 9 people it was plenty. A couple bottles of wine and we were off on a great night. or reservation was at 6 and we were probably sitting by 6:05. Thanks carmines you made dinner an easy and very enjoyable experience for a bunch or loud excited guys at a bachelor party.

I suggest going with more than 2 people because the portions are large and meant for sharing. Overall the food was good. However I though the caeser salad was very overpriced ($29) for just lettuce, cheese, and dressing.

My party and I had a GREAT TIME. The waiter was AWESOME, and he made recommendations. We followed his advice and he was spot on. I will be coming back soon and thank you so much. The food was AWESOME. Will recommend Carmines just like it was recommended to me.

We made a reservation at Carmine's and didn't know it was family style. Unfortunately family style didn't suite us well as we were 3 adults and 2 tweens and the cost of ordering more than two entrees and a salad was prohibitive. Some of us didn't like one entree very much. The portions were just right. The noise level was truly awful. Our waiter had to yell at us and very other table is his section.
The Family Style restaurant is nice, but ...
The Family Style restaurant is nice, but if a few don't enjoy the same food, it can become expensive with a lot of waste. It was nice to experience once, but I would not go back again. Bring your glasses as the menu is on the wall. The place is very noisy so if you expect to chat with your table, it can be difficult. The food was good, but nothing to wow about. 8 of us had Caesar Salad, Fried Calamari, Veal Parm, Shrimp Parm, Pasta with Meatballs. It was a perfect amount with very little left over.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the food at Carmine's, I thought the prices were a bit reticulum, i.e. $48 for a plate of Veal Parmigiana. Portions are large, so would only recommend for large groups so plates can be shared.

I was with two other friends for dinner. We had chicken saltimbocca and a mixed salad. The food was excellent. Service was top notch and our waiter was friendly and personable. We have been to Carmine's before and continue to go there when we are in Atlantic City.

Carmine's has great food, we always enjoy having dinner there when we visit Atlantic City. We just recently were there for my Wife's birthday dinner. It's family style food, so expect large portions to share with the people go with.

Always love the food at Carmines. Staff is great and just love the atmosphere. I know this is petty to some but have to throw it out there.....I like my wine in a wine glass. I know they use those little glasses in Italy as that is how my in-laws drink their wine but I prefer a wine glass 😄

Carmine was great; however, only ones issue. Hard reservations for 6:30 and had to wait 20 minutes. I don't like to wait especially since I'm Black card holder at the Tropicana.....I expected to be seated promptly.

Having been to the Carmine's location in NYC, we came to the AC location with a large group for a bachelor party. Making the reservation ahead of time, they were able to accommodate our group and the manager came around to make sure we were taken care of. Food was on par with the NYC locations and as usual, we left with a couple bags of leftovers. Overall, a great way to feed a family or large group and the staff was attentive and helpful.

Been here several times. This time the service was not good. The waiter seemed very disinterested in waiting on us. Also the ceasar salad had the core of the lettuce in it making it look as though we were served a lot of salad. Very disappointing. Portions have gone down as well. Will think twice about dining here again.

This was our first visit to Carmine's and it did not disappoint. We came to celebrate my daughter's Sweet 16 with some friends. The food was delicious and each dish feeds at least four people, so do not order too much. The service was great and everyone is very friendly. We will definitely be back!

The servers were very friendly and were well trained. Food was alright, nothing special. Girlfriend and I had fried calamari for appetizer and eggplant parmesan for dinner. We were in and out very quickly, but we got there earlier than their "busy hours".
