Family Style Italian Restaurant
Theatre District- New York City

By Dining Detectives

Just off Times Square you'll find a great Italian restaurant called Carmine's. Places like this are why we love New York! They serve Classic Italian cuisine, family style with generous portions that are perfect for sharing.

Founded in 1992 by Restaurateur Artie Cutler to be similar to an Italian wedding feast or the way it used to be at grandma's house Carmine's was an immediate success and was also packed the night we dined. Our first course was their classic delicious Home Style Antipasto. Next, we enjoyed tasty crispy Fried Calamari. Carmine's salad was the perfect intermezzo before the heartier dishes arrived. We loved the classic Pasta with tomato sauce and herbs. The Chicken Parmesan was a delicious main course.

Although we couldn't eat any more, we had to try some of the Dessert Sampler which consisted of all of our favorites including; chocolate cannoli, bread pudding, tiramisu and cheesecake. The atmosphere on the second floor of the restaurant for our large party was very festive .The walls were filled with pictures of Italian celebrities and theatrical drapes helped section off our semi-private space from the other big parties. Large bottles of Carmine's own Red & White Italian Wines enhanced our appetites for what turned out to be a well paced, tasty feast where the food and wine never stopped until we rolled out... over four hours later.
