We enjoyed the food. I asked waiter if salad came with meal. I understood a yes. Surprised to see a $14 charge for a salad. I hate going to a restaurant and feel cheated. Will not return

Great Italian food served family style. Large portions. Several pasta option and daily specials. The wait staff are always helpful and friendly. Large bar area with bar menu offering smaller portions and television if you want to watch a game.

Ordered Garlic Bread w/cheese, Calamari and Chicken Marsala for 2 adults and a 12 year old. Plenty of food, which was delicious. Had some leftover to take back to the hotel for a snack. Price was reasonable, service was excellent.

We went here twice in a week during our stay in D.C. I've been to other Carmine's in other cities, and this one was just as good. Huge portions, great service, noisy and lively restaurant. I particularly like their white clam linguine and Caesar salad....More

This is a very large facility. I expect they can accommodate groups, as long as you call ahead.

Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. The Carmine's concept is to bring its guests a "wow-factor" sized portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast. Platters of homestyle antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing amongst friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's.
