    This is not an italian restaurant, if you really want an authentic one go to La Perla.

    Prosciutto & Mozzarella lunch sandwich is delicious, and the portion is huge - definitely enough to serve two.

    They may have a reputation, but if they keep serving food like what I had last night, they will not be there much longer

    Procure pelo Javier. Melhor garçon :)

    Even though it's a tourist trap, the food and service are great. Portions are designed to be enormous so it's the perfect spot for large families to feel at home.

    The eggplant parmesan serves 5 and is both absolutely delicious and tender and light. All the dishes serve 4 - 6 so go with a group of at least 4 if you're all gonna share one main dish.

    So many televisions here. Same Carmine's menu, more sports-bar feel. Read more

    In a family of 4, I reccomend getting only 2 dishes, as they are FAMILY sized!

    Las porciones son enormes! Los platillos sin duda son para compartir. El de New York se atasca por lo que se requiere reservación. El de Washington muy agradable y sin tanta gente.

    Good food but don't go unless you have at least four people. Servings are about $30 per item but each will feed 4-5. There are no smaller portions.

    Most entrees can be split between 3-4 people. Be sure to make reservations beforehand!

    Do not come here with just 2 if you are from out of town! Wish I new portions were this big! Have a group of at least 4!

    Calamari was good.

  • Marion T.

    Carmine's spicy scarpariello wings are an amazing happy hour snack. If the full order is too much you can always ask for a half order. If you're at the bar, Andy and Dan are the best.
