Getting a table under Carmine’s mismatched chandeliers is tough, even by Theater District standards. Once you do snag a spot, you’ll be greeted by an amicable staff that dishes out gigantic portions of family-style specialties. Chicken comes slathered in savory marsala sauce, and eggplant parmigiana is thickly layered with tomato sauce and bubbling cheese. Enormous desserts (like the aptly named Titanic, a sundae atop a chocolate torte) verge on the obscene, and the odds are high that you will hear “Happy Birthday” sung more than once.

One of  two locations, this Carmine's is right smack in the middle of the Theater district. This Italian family style restaurant is great for groups of tourists on a budget out and about in the Big Apple or large parties who don't mind sharing food. The food portions are beyond huge, and made to be shared amongst a few people. You probably will still have leftovers, though. The menu has the typical Italian- American items like garlic bread, meat balls, fried calamari, pasta with clam sauce, chicken parmigiana, veal chops, and eggplant parmigiana. If you can save a little room for desert, try the tiramisu.


First thing you should know HUMONGOUS portion. Come here with family! Do not come here by yourself or two, you'll end up having leftover for 3 days! The food is OK. There're just some places that you should come depend on how many party you have. Otherwise not a big deal.
