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.

"we had lunch on Saturday 12/7/14. I had reservations and they sat us early! Our server Jeter was outstanding. He went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves. the bus staff was very good as well, sorry I don't know the names. The food was excellent. We shared the stuffed artichokes first with a basket of delicious bread. We then had the Rigatoni with Bolognese and Chicken Contadina. The chicken was outstanding. Rigatoni excellent as well. Four people who can eat a lot, and we still took home a doggie bag!!!"
