The first time I went to Carmine's II, I wasn't sure I wanted to go in. It it looked liked a total dive from the outside, and was situated right next to a McDonalds. But when I walked in, it was like I was transported to a 1960s Rat Pack hang. The place was made up of 50% bar, with... More

We always wanted to try Carmines since we moved to the area four years ago but just never got around to it. Decided to try it tonight and we were so pleased. The service is amazing. So friendly. The angel hair pasta with bolognese was delicious and the brownie dessert is out of this world. Will gladly go back. Highly... More

We went here for dinner last night. Ordered way too much food by accident. The waiter we had was lovely, he told us they were all about "family sharing" and boy they were not kidding. We had the parmigiana bread, carbornara pasta and chicken parmigiana. When the starter came out and we saw the size of the bread we knew... More

Great neighborhood restaurant. The waiter offered great wine selections We had the chicken marsala which was excellent & a Caesar salad with the vodka penne with chicken. The surprise was the chocolate sorbet which was rich & decadent. We capped the dinner with cappuccinos. Would go again

An Italian friend of mine who is from NYC, loves this place so I tried it. Now I know what he was talking about. Comfortable environment, delicious food and very good service.

I wanted the rat pack to stop by to have a bite and a drink with me. The black and white pizza is out of this world!

What more can I say than this place is absolutely perfect. The portions are ridiculously immense but the food is delicious. The service is top notch and it's very reasonably priced. Visit Carmines if you want delicious and authentic Italian food!

We have been there often over the years. The last time was with family friends in December 2015 when the restaurant was crowded but still welcoming, attentive and friendly. This restaurant reminds us of where we grew up in New Jersey. It is a small, intimate place with black and white photos of Sinatra and the Rat Pack reminding you... More
