Come with an appetite because portions are HUGE! Italian food is served family style and made for sharing — this works well for groups of four or more, so you can taste a little of everything. Carmine's varied menu includes tasty appetizers, fresh salads, delicious seafood, fabulous veal, chicken, and beef entrees... and more pasta dishes than you can count!

Take a breather between courses and if you can, leave room for dessert — Italian Cheesecake, Tiramisu, Chocolate Cannoli... and more. Yum!

If you have 10-12 people in your group, put a request in for the big round table upstairs (there's only one round table in the restaurant) — it's more fun than a long table and easier for conversation.

For Groups of 15 or more, Carmine's requires a pre-set menu. Gift Cards are also available.

Carmine's Bar
Carmine's big bustling bar is a FUN place to hang out, have a few drinks before dinner and enjoy people-watching. If there are only two of you and you want to grab a quick bite, the bar is a fun place to eat. It's also very popular with the pre-theater crowd, so expect a full house.
