This is a great place if with a group. Food was great and service was superb. Love the raviolis. Prices looks high but you have to remember that each dish serves approximately 4 people. Not bad if dividing bill with a group.

You can't go to NYC and not stop in at Carmines to eat! There is no such thing as eating light at Carmines! Their portions are enough to feed 4! Always enjoy their Caesar salad and calamari with cocktails! A must when in NYC!!!

I don't know. Why don't you call and ask?
I would like to order in a buffet dinner for 20 students end of January. I see you have meat lasagna; do you have a vegetarian option as well? I am trying to figure out a one-plate eat-on-your-lap buffet menu that includes salad/main and perhaps a side vegetable. Any suggestions appreciated.

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. And when we say large, we mean large. An entree here could easily feed three to four average eaters. Located in a sprawling, former grand ballroom on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, this is the original Carmines. Designed by Peter Niemitz, the interiors evoke the images of the quintessential New York restaurant. With elements and details from the 1920s to the 1940s, the restaurant has the look and feel of a place that has been around for much longer than it's 1990 opening. If you are in the market for freshly prepared family style Italian food that is served in huge portions at reasonable prices, this is the place for you.
