    Well let me begin with saying I usually don't give my opinon on restaurants. Where to start? Yesterday I ate at Carmines in NY. I happen to be orginally from Austin however have been to N.Y. a bunch of occasions. My family and I love the uniqueness of establishments. Everyone in that restaurant was so nice!The dining room is sleek and somewhat lovely. The hospitality was outstanding. The entrees arrived very fast. Amongst my personal problems had been the preso wasn't that incredible. It was fine although just didn't present you with that "omg" factor. Even though no serious issues. The cost was basically what we estimated though perhaps a couple of dollars too overpriced. We will be back soon.

    I think this location serves even bigger plates than the Times Square location. LOVE CARMINE's, the food is delicious. As a rule, I usually stay away from places that serve monster meals, Carmine's is where I break that rule. Went last night they had a special for their anniversary. $20 buck plates. Ordered the Spaghetti with meatballs and the chicken in lemon sauce. I think I have left overs for an entire week. The food was truly delicious. Our server was great: friendly without being overbearing and super personable. I think I'm still full.

    I Ate:

    • Pasta with Meatballs: Ginormous and tasty ($20)
    • Chicken with lemon sauce: Also Ginormous and tasty ($20)
    • Feudi di san gregorio Falanghina: Tasty ($32)
