Carmine’s Italian Restaurant originally opened in 1990 in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. In a city with dozens of Italian restaurants, Carmine’s set itself apart. Its vision was, and still is, to bring “wow-factor” sized portions, with reasonable prices, to its guests. With the goal to make “every meal feel like an Italian-American wedding feast” the restaurant was an immediate hit, especially among families and groups. As a result, a second location was opened in Times Square, eventually expanding out-of-state as well. Still, the restaurant maintains its New York City roots. The atmosphere is lively and spirited with classic New York decor and charm.
In the debate over “quality over quantity” or “quantity over quality”, Carmine’s asks — why not both? With its delicious family-sized platters of seafood, meat entrees, pasta, homemade desserts, and more — customers come to Carmine’s for quality and quantity. The combination of good food, good wine and a Golden Age New York City environment has earned Carmine’s a well deserved success and popularity. Its become a staple in the Upper West Side, and a favorite for parties and celebrations. If you’re craving Italian, you can visit the restaurant at its original Upper West Side location at 2450 Broadway, New York, NY 10024 or at Time’s Square 200 W 44th St, New York, NY 10036.
