My wife and I found Carmine's in NYC several years ago. We enjoy the tasty Italian food and the family style dining. Every time we are traveling near a Carmine's we stop in. The Chicken Parmesan and Veal Scaloppini are terrific. The 4 family members be introduced to Carmine's in Vegas will be sure to return the next time they are in 'Sin City.'

Absolutely outstanding! Our group of six ordered the Carmine's salad, angel hair pasta Carbonara, special beef tenderloin and veal scaloppine with lemon & butter. The Sardinia lemon drop martini's were a hit. Our guests could not believe how fabulous the food was and how much there was. The service was fabulous. Although we were all stuffed (with food left over) we had to order the Titanic dessert to share. It was gargantuan and delicious as were the cappucino's and sambucca. When the bill came, we played a guessing game before we looked to see what the total was. The highest guess was $900. The actual total cost for this incredible meal was $420.00 and that was for 6 people. We had so much fun. Definitely will return to Carmine's! Thank you so much, outstanding.

The restaurant is intended for large groups only. The hostess told us that the server would assist us with the order so that we would not order too much food. There were two of us and he said that a salad and an entree would be perfect. The salad that arrived was for 10 people and the entree was fine but average tasting. What a waste of food!\n\nAnother couple had the same experience at a neighboring table and they told the waiter to cancel their entree and bring the check after he brought them the giant salad. \n\nAlthough we tried to each eat two platefuls of salad we barely put a dent in it. We had hoped for a great date night in Vegas at an Italian restaurant - what a BIG disappointment!\n\nThis place would be great for a large family with a lot of kids who want quantity and not quality food.

You better be hungry when dining at Carmine's! This is an excellent Italian dining experience located in the Forum Shop's Mall off Caesar's Palace. My friend says it's just like Carmine's in New York City! The portions are huge and meant to feed 3 - 4 people. If you want half orders only you must sit at the bar. We opted for a table in the dining room. The prices are very reasonable but we had way too much food. We ordered Caesar Salad, angel hair pasta with clams and Veal Scaloppine. The salad was enough for 4 or 5 people, and delicious, just the right amount of dressing. The Angel Hair and clams was scrumptious, and again enough for 4. The veal was melt in your mouth tender and delicious, best I've ever had. We managed to finish it off but left half a platter of pasta. The house white wine was a Pino Grigio and light and luscious.\nCompliments of the house we were served some Cannoli that were heavenly. All in all fabulous food and affordable prices. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is fantastic for groups! They were very busy so make a reservation!

I love Carmine's! The only thing was they were VERY busy on Saturday, so the service was slow. Our reservation was for 4:30 and we were seated, but we didn't order until after 5 and it was almost 6 when our food arrived. They were apologetic, but it was a long late lunch early dinner that turned into dinner. The food is and was awesome. I will still go back!

Waited about 10 minutes for a party of 3 even though I made reservations and there was ample seating available. I had a breezy italian for a drink and it wasn't as good as the ones I've had at the theater district location. Maybe if the rosemary wasn't missing it would've tasted better. I ordered caesar salad along with penne alla vodka pasta and a porterhouse steak. The salad was good and also the pasta. I asked the steak be medium cooked and it was inconsistently cooked with some parts well done. I'd prefer it to be rare than well done. The server was ok but he could've performed better. I think I had to refill my glass with water on a 7 to 1 scale. Overall experience could've been better given the $195 price for pasta, salad and steak excluding the 20% tip I gave. Most likely I won't be returning to this location and I'll be sticking with the NYC restaurant.

A group of four friends went for a post-conference meal. We ordered the Caesar salad, cheese ravioli with meat sauce, and the chicken scallopiene with lemon and butter. Food was great - the salad was amazing. Their meat sauce is delicious. But my ears were bleeding it was so loud. We couldn't hear our waiter. There was a wedding up stairs. Music playing in the restaurant and in the the forum shops. Vegas is loud, but this was over the top. We couldn't read the menu either (it's posted on the wall). We asked for a paper copy - they don't exist. The waiter suggested we take a picture of it. I'm sorry, but that's ridiculous. I have horrible eyes (glasses wearer since high school) and my back was to it. It'd totally eat there again, but perhaps I'd call ahead and make sure there wasn't any special events happening and look extensively at the menu online.

Don't make the mistake of going to Carmines. Go to Rao's, they won't disappoint you there.\n\nWould not go and would not recommend again.\nReally disappointed.\nI have been coming to carmines for 4+ years based on my brothers recommendation. My brother is a Las Vegas local.\n\nHad the worst experience last night.\nOrdered; bottle of wine which was not brought out when ordered, instead I needed to remind them when the appetizers came out. So we had no wine until the food was served. Appetizers; baked clams (not as good as usual, over cooked on top, too hard to chew), side of meatballs (was ok and really the only shining light of the dinner). Entree; penne vodka which was terrible. Sauce was runny, not creamy, with giant cloves of garlic. Almost as if some ingredients had been left out. Penne vodka was sent back only to have it brought back to the table 2 minutes later to be clearly the same dish only nuked with overly cooked pasta added to the grotesque dish. Which was then sent back again and I asked for it not to be remade.\nThe pasta was taken off and the female manager (Dani) did come over to speak with me. She attempted to resolve the situation by bringing out 6 Cannoli (3 to go and 3 for the table). I am deathly allergic to pistachio nuts and the Cannoli were covered. I told the woman who brought them out that I was allergic and she said no problem and that she would bring out some Cannoli without pistachio nuts. The manager Dani, also came over and I told her as well. I waited 20-25 minutes for the Cannoli to be brought out to the table and finally gave up and left. \n\nRegret going to Carmines and wish I would have gone to Rao's. \nFood and service are superior.

My wife and I visit Vegas at least 2 times a year and a must is to have those delicious rigs at Carmine's. The sauce is wonderful; in fact, (I have shared this with your staff) when I had dinner at Olive Garden I could not believe that an Italian restaurant would serve the sauce that they had. So, I wrote to their headquarters about my disdain and recommended that they visit your restaurant to get an idea what a savory sauce tastes like.

Blane our waiter was as pushy as any waiter ever. He repeated the process over and over, pushed people and in short was terrible. The food was mush. Over all in the group of 12, not one person enjoyed the food. With Birthday dinner of 12 (Birthday noted on the reservation) the mother of the 21 year old daughter was told, we can celebrate, we don't have cakes. I had to walk over and tell him to get me a desert with a candle. He said, Ill have to charge you. I handed him $20 and he reluctantly brought over a frozen ice cream. \n\nI eat in all quality of restaurants 2-3 times a week. This is the worst for the past decade.

Late Saturday dining after a Vegas show. Service was slow, fried calamari appetizer must have been up for 10 minutes+ before it was brought to table because it tasted warm from a heat lamp; not hot from coming out of a fryer. Carmine salad was tasty but horribly overdressed. Lasagna was pretty standard; nothing special. First server (Michael) was way too chatty for a late table, even when we told him we were just in for a quick after-show bite to eat. Servers were switched and Kelley (sp?) took over and service could be termed friendly, but unattentive. This was a repeat visit but may well have been the last. Way too many dining options to tolerate this. Sorry but you asked for the review.

I'm glad I finally got to try this place, but I won't go out of my way to return. We ordered the veal parmesan and lasagna; I like pasta with my chicken parmesan, so I assumed I would want it with veal parmesan as well. It came with 1 pound of pasta! Each entrée was roughly $40 each. Not sure what the charge was for the side of pasta.\n\nI don't generally eat meat, so, this was an indulgent treat for me. Sadly, I just was not that impressed with the veal or the lasagna. Both seemed to taste as if they included canned ingredients. Yes, they give you enormous portions, and claim that everything is served family style. However, I would rather have small to average size portions and good food over ginormous portions and not so great food. \n\nService was absolutely exceptional. Had to be the best service received during this visit to Las Vegas. I wish I remembered our servers name because she was outstanding!\n\nOur bill came to just over $100 before tip. This is generally what we spend for dinner in Las Vegas, however, I would've rather had an indulgent dinner at Mastro's or the like. \n\nWhen I'm in the mood for Italian food on the strip I'll stick with Maggiano's. At least there I know I'll leave satisfied.\n\nFive stars for the service. However, The food was overpriced and just not that good.

The food is served family style but we were very disappointed to find that there is only a limited menu for parties of two and served only in the bar at high tables, which was something the hostess failed to tell us when we checked out the restaurant earlier in the day. As a result, although the pasta dish we had was good, we were not able to try any of the specialties that the restaurant had to offer.

Carmine's mixed green salad and rigatoni with broccoli were both excellent. We had moscato which was also excellent, however, we ordered a bottle and it wasn't chilled while on the table and they were apparently out of wine glasses as we were served the wine in water glasses. The bread basket came out after our salad and our waiter was absent considering they weren't very busy, but others definitely stopped by and helped and boxed up our food to go, etc. We have been before and would go back again based on the food alone.

This was Christmas Eve and a party of two which is not an ideal pairing it seems for this location. We arrived about 10 minutes prior to our reservation to find a line about 25 deep and assumed it was a wait line not one for those with reservations. But there was a lot of confusion and they were seating both those with reservations and those standing in line at the same time and apologized it was busy and people were not leaving: hint, don't take people without reservations then.\n\nWe were told we could try to find room at the bar because it did not look like any room would be opening for tables of two. We did grab a high top and about 45 minutes into our meal and an hour after our reservation the very stressed hostess found us and asked if we were still wanting our reserved table? We declined. \n\nAs for food we kept it simple and ordered sandwiches and calamari. The calamari was fine as was my wife's sandwich (eggplant) my Italian was oddly salty. The meats are obviously salty meats and I am accustomed to that but this was so salty it dried out the cheese which was just strange. But people do not there for sandwiches so don't consider the review on food it was a busy night and perhaps one off sandwich. The issue was the reservation which simple didn't work.

Carmine is a family style Italian restaurant with large portions in the dishes intended to be shared between 3-4 people. We ordered a salad and 2 pasta dishes with left overs for 1-2 people. The food was good and fairly priced. We would not say the food was exceptional as it was average in flavor for an Italian restaurant. The décor was very nice with high ceiling. The walls were filled with photos of Italian stars like Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Rat Pack, etc.. If we were in the area and needed to have Italian, we would return.

I read the reviews about the portions so we decided to get one entree and split it family style. It was still a lot of food! It is ideal for groups of 3 or more I would say but we did the best we could. The food was wonderful, our server was very friendly and accommodating. I loved the atmosphere and enjoyed every minute.

As always, Carmine's food was fantastic. I did not love that my glass of wine was served in the same glass that my water was served in - not even a stemless wine glass, just a small round glass. The menu options are posted on boards around the restaurant and not visible to each table. If there was something I'd recommend that the restaurant change, it would be to either make the menus more visible or to offer at least one menu per table. We told the manager that we could not see the menu and his response was that we should get up and go see them or to ask the server as they should know the menu. My guests and I would have preferred to actually read the menu ourselves and ask the server any questions we may have had about it. Instead, we used our phones to review the menu online.

My family ate here for Thanksgiving and got their Thanksgiving meal for 8. We made a reservation about two weeks in advance and Carmine's called to confirm our reservation a day later. When we arrived, they could not find our reservation but appeared to still be willing to seat us. Once I found the email with the confirmation number, they then found the reservation. Either way, we had to wait a little bit before our table was ready which wa disappointing. The food was very good. We got a TON of turkey but very little mashed potatoes (everyone's favorite). When we asked for extra they brought out a huge plate of mashed and sweet potatoes and charged us $15 for each which was also disappointing. Overall, the experience was good and I would like to come back and try their regualr menu but I would not come back for the Thanksgiving meal.

Your review must be at least 50 characters.I've been to multiple locations of Carmine's. This week it was the Las Vegas Carmine's.\nAs always, the waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. We started with the Carmine’s salad then had the Sunday macaroni special and it was outstanding. It had lasagna, ziti in meat sauce, gnocchi in pesto and manicotti. \nCarmine's is served family style and there is always more than enough food for your crowd. \nI can't wait for the next time.

I enjoyed my lemon drop martini. My husband had Chianti. Good thing someone told me that they serve family style at the tables-for 4.\nWe had the calamari at the bar. Almost burnt my lips as the tomato sauce was steaming warm. They gave a lot and it was very good. We had the meatball which was good. We had the vodka penne which I really liked. My husband prefers spaghetti a la bolognese. I had no room for dessert. The bread and service was very good. I think they use lots of garlic. Big portions. I will return.

This was second time we have come with a large group before a show at the Caesars. For a large group it is a pretty good venue. However, we had so-so service as we were in the very front of the restaurant and seemed to be an afterthought. \n\nAlso, the wine prices are silly. I asked if I could bring in my own bottle and the answer was yes but the corkage fee was $35. That is the highest I have ever seen at even some much better restaurants. For a pretty average restaurant the $35 corkage is about $20 too high. So are the wine prices. A $10 retail bottle was $38. Wow, at those prices it is pretty clear that Carmines is catering to the occasional visitor and is willing to stick it to those visitors.

We went to Carmines for our anniversary dinner. It was a Wednesday evening in Las Vegas ( so you understand, its 10% of what it becomes on weekends), we had a table booked for 4. We were greeted very warmly and seated by the hostess. Other tables were moderately filled with plenty of room. We have been to Carmine's before at time square so we were aware of the portions. Our waitress Carmen did explain that to us. Ordered our food and wine. Another waiter tabled warmed bread while we waited for food. \nSo far so good. \nOur food arrive fairly quickly and a nice gentleman served us pasta. The entree was family portion as they advertise but not as large as they do in NY. However it wasn't less for us so no complaints. \nAs we were eating at our ease - Carmen comes and reaches out to clean the plates!!. Please wait lady, we are not done yet. \nWe help ourselves with a second serving, a little bit left but still working on the food, she come again and reaches out for the plate.. what the heck??\nmoving on - here comes the check. with the gratuity part circled in red ink. I kind of noticed it, but let it go. She comes back with the card, opens the black thing in which they bring the check and taps on the gratuity part again - all in a subtle smooth move. BUT WHY??\nI paid $175 including 20% gratuity (which I shouldn't have really). She comes back moments after I finished signing the receipt, opens it up and checks how much I have paid. \nCleans up the table while we try to get out of the booth, says 'have a good night' with face turned the other way. \nIt could be just her that night, but I am never going back to Carmine's again. \nJust to complete the story, we went to Cafe Bellagio the next day and it just couldn't have been better. We had to wait for table but we felt so welcome and food was amazing too. \nTip for people trying to decide - Go to Cafe Bellagio (next to the garden) for the same price and way better service and food and ambience.

Please know that before you go, this is a family style restaraunt. All the entrees are made to feed four people. If you go with only two people, like we did, it will be wayyyy too much food (and $$$). If you sit at the bar, they have portions that are for two people, but the menu selection is very limited at the bar. We went because we wanted the special that night(beef tenderloin) but, unfortunately, that was not offered at the bar. We left feeling disappointed as all of our other choices were not served at the bar either, and we ended up settling on something that was just mediocre.

This restaurant caters to large groups and families because the portion sizes are for 3 - 4 people. Unfortunately, their website did not list prices or clearly state that all of the menu items come in family size portions. For example a side of sautéed spinach was over $20 enough for at least 6 or more people. Since it was a Sat night and we made reservations on Open Table, we stayed despite the fact that we were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary by ourselves. Also they do not give out menus they are posted on the walls of the restaurant. Very inconvenient as we had to turn around completed to see the menu on the wall. I noticed at least 4 people getting up to take a photo with their smart phones because they could not see the menu either. \nOur waiter explained the portion sizes to us and was polite. The food was good however we only had the veal parmigiana and the spinach because the portions were so huge.\n\nWe also saw a couple leave after we were seated because they did not know about the portion sizes either. The restaurant did call to confirm our reservation, however they should have explained to a party of 2 about the portions sizes on the phone. We would have cancelled our reservation and gone someplace else. Yes, we were disappointed that our anniversary dinner was ok at best. I would only go there with a large number of people in a group at least 6 or more.

The pizzas were great - the crusts were not oily at all and the toppings were first rate. Desserts are over the top.

The calamari was nothing special and for the price, it should have been. If it had been cooked cooked a little longer then we might have enjoyed it more. The Carmine's salad did not have enough dressing and was much better after we received a container of dressing (we usually ask for the dressing on the side because too many restaurants overdo the dressing - I say this so you know that we don't like our salad swimming in dressing).

First the aroma when you approach the entrance is'Devine'..garlic, butter, tomatoe,spices. . The decor is very east coast style, the menu is a video wall placed in three separate places which makes it a little hard for some we saw many standing to see it. I wasn't aware of the family style so when I saw the prices I thought it was a bit pricey but then I understood the average price is 23 to $35 per entree and so worth it in the end it's plentiful, delicious but I wish they would turn the air conditioning down it does cool your food off we ordered the garlic bread Wow garlic, I believe it's a provolone cheese 9 pieces $16.95 there are some prices that are not posted ie daily special prime rib we ask $95 but as large as the portions are I'm sure that could have fed 7 people. We ordered chicken scallopini ( chicken we ordered with linguini spinach lemon butter sauce) it was good the chicken was slightly bland but you can't over season everything we found it to be a very memorable experience we will be back with a larger group so we can eat all the food Thank You Carmines

We ordered the chicken wing appetizer & eggplant. The wings were outstanding, amazing rosemary flavor. A nice change from the usual buffalo style kind. The eggplant, as always, was superb. We were staying at a condo resort, so we had the facilities to reheat the leftovers, which were great the following day for lunch!!! Service was very good as well and highly recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant is definitely for large groups only. They are missing out on couples and small groups. It was only my husband and myself and we had a casserole size of lasagne served to us. They need to accommodate smaller groups. Also, the cocktails we had were terrible. We could not taste any alcohol, even after we asked for additional vodka to be added to our drinks. Will not be on our list when we return to Vegas. That said, the staff was friendly and accommodating.

If you are a couple, forget this place. Huge, oversize portions meant to be shared with a group. While the service is attentive and the food is prepared well, the menu pricing makes for difficult selections if you are just a couple. The side pricing is off the charts. You are better off sharing your food with the next table.

Birthday celebration with group of 8 which certainly did not disappoint. Restaurant is a very busy and loud but adds to the ambience. Tips would be to engage with your server to navigate through the menu to understand how much food to order. A bit odd that no menus are handed out, they are all displayed on the wall. We took photos on phones in the end. We knew they were sharing portions from research beforehand but price of dishes is no indication to size so our waitress was extremely helpful. For 8 of us we had 3 main dishes, then spinach and an entree portion of fried zucchini and this was enough. Cocktails were delicious and we just had one tirimasu for desert which was bought to me with a candle whilst happy birthday was sung. A wonderful evening to remember.

Excellent. Good but the portions were huge and the waiters did not explain the sizes. Just the wife and I and the ceased salad had at least three heads of lettuce. Luckily we were able to share the plate with the equally uniformed family of four become us so it did not go to waist. The other issue is for some reason the opted to only put the menu ok the wall that is only visible from 20% of the seats so we enjoyed a convoy of people all night walking by us to take a picture of the menu. If you are there with a big group you will enjoy the experience and the meal. Couples may want to opt for something different.

I'm Italian and very picky about Italian food. My grandmother, Mother, now I all made/make stuffed artichokes for special holiday meals. I have never seen them on a menu, ever, anywhere, but here. I get them everytime I come to a Carmine's for years, and I LOVE them. I have told many people about this, that may be traveling to a city that has a Carmines.

The food was really good but the service absolutely sucked. We sat at the table for 30 minutes before a waitress showed up. She didn't ask for cocktail orders and immediately asked for food orders.\n\nWe asked to order wine. She came back to the table 15 minutes later and set the wine bottle on the table and took off. My wife went to the hostess stand to ask for a manager. The hostess said she'd send him right over. He never arrived.\n\nThe waitress continued to suck and the restaurant has no sign of a manager, training or any restaurant processes. What they did have was good family style Italian food, but I would recommend against dining here.

The geniuses who manage this place decided to dispense with printed menus and only have television displayed menus which are illegible from 3/4 of the restaurant. This means that your party will likely have to hover over a handful of tables to order, unless of course you are seated close enough to the televisions to read the menus; in which case you will be hovered over by other patrons your entire meal. Go elsewhere if you are looking for a gimmick free meal.

Having been to Carmine's in New York we understood the 'family style dining' - i.e. VERY LARGE plates designed to feed a minimum of 4 hungry people each. However some parts of this well worn business model need changing. At this location, some tables are located out of view of the wall-mounted menus so the only way to see the menu is, in the words of our waiter, to 'get up and take a picture of it with your phone'. Really? Time to get real menus!\n\nThe wine service at this restaurant is pathetic. Serving a $92 cab in a water glass and at the wrong temperatue, that supposedly reflects 'italian country style' - Really? My wife's Pinot Grigio was served warm, not chilled, again in a water glass. Maybe if we were paying 'italian country style' prices this would be acceptable, but not at these prices\n\nTime for a change Carmine's!

As a New Yorker who no longer lives in NY, I long for places when on the road that have great Italian food. Carmines has great southern Italian food. Everything we ordered, the linguini with chunks of clams, the towering eggplant, the delicious shrimp scampi, the sausage and angel hair, and the wine were all excellent. Our server was very attentive and helpful. While bread kept coming in a variety of flavors, the water served in tall shot glasses seemed the only inconvenience. We had a great gathering of 8 people, celebrated a wedding that took place an hour before with a bottle of bubbly California blanco champagne, and unfortunately had no room for dessert. This family style experience is worth visiting, and we will when we are back at Caesars.

We had a disappointing meal at Carmines this time. I had been there before, and we had a friendly and attentive waitperson, a decent meal and an overall positive experience. This time, the food was disturbingly substandard and our waitperson was forgetful and mostly absent. \n\nWe spend a decent amount of time in Vegas, so our expectations aren't out of line - we understand the trade-offs at some of these larger restaurants often dealing pre-show or post-show rushes, etc. In this case, however, it was a slow time of evening (5:30pm), and we were only a party of 4, and having made reservations we were at one of the front tables. \n\nThe Caesar salad, which in the past has been good, was like something out of the employee cafeteria downstairs, if not worse. The lettuce ends were all brown and slimy, the salad was completely limp and overdressed, and we received a plate with 3 small dried out anchovies. The croutons were the consistency of wet sponges. \n\nThe linguine pasta (olive oil and garlic, plus shrimp) was ok, though there were literally six small shrimp in the entire family size bowl (we counted, once we realized we'd need to negotiate our portions). \n\nOur drinks were forgotten, the olive oil we requested for our bread was forgotten, and our waitperson was nowhere to be seen until the end of the meal, so we didn't have a chance to order drinks before our meal concluded. \n\nAll in all quite disappointing, especially considering the premium price one pays for a pretty simple meal at Carmines. We won't be back.

The food is outstanding and they do not lie when they say 'family style.' The portions are enough to go around for at least 6 people with healthy appetites, like us. We had the 45oz porterhouse which was HUGE and a sight for the eyes, as well as Caesar salad, linguine bolognese and penne alla vodka.

This restaurant should have a disclaimer 'not for parties of less than 4'. Each item on their menu board ( there are no paper menus here) is served family style and are all full orders. So if you are only a party of 2 you really can only order a salad or appetizer and a entree or pasta. Even that is too much food and I like to eat. The food was ok certainly not the best I have ever had. Without a doubt I wish we had come here with 6 + people so we could of tried some of the other food choices. The 8 stuffed mushrooms for $24 was a rip off. The pasta we ordered for $ 36 was a waste as we could only eat 1/2 the order. Probably won't go back here ever!!

We thought that the food was outstanding, like cooking you can't find anywhere else east of New York City. We loved sharing our orders family style. Our only regret was that there were not more of us in our group. We could have brought two more friends along and satisfied them easily with what we ordered. Oh, well, that meant that there were more leftovers to take home.

Have wanted to try this restaurant for a while now. The staff was wonderful. Polite, professional and on point. Didn't rush us but made sure we had drinks and waters. The food was very good. The meatballs were great. Had Calamari for appetizer and it was good (have had better). Had Cheesecake was good (have had better and I make better). That isn't being mean just saying the food was good but not wonderful. Would I go back? Maybe but there are other Italian Places I'd like to go to first.

A friend recommended this place from his previous experiences in Las Vegas. I read reviews ahead of time and have to admit that I was hesitant to book this restaurant based on the mixed reviews I saw. My friend told me to give a shot regardless, so we did. We were four large men and thought that a salad, one order of spaghetti and sausage, and one order of lasagna would be too little. However, we felt guilty about sending half of the lasagna back because we were stuffed by the end of the meal. I write this review only because I do not like to throw food away! The lasagna dish is big enough to feed 6 people without another entree needed. If you order water, one appetitzer, one salad, one entree, and one dessert, you could potentially eat a good meal here for $30 a person for a party of six, inclusive of tax and tip. Our waiter was very attentive and did a good job. I would go back to Carmine's again, but next time, order less food. Another idea would be to box up the untouched food and give it to the one of the homeless individuals that are found throughout the city.

We love Carmines in NYC - but this is not NYC. The stuffed artichokes were undercooked and rock hard - the chef replaced them with an even harder one. We needed 'special permission' for a half order of gluten-free pasta to accommodate one person's dietary restriction, which we were apparently 'fortunate' to receive - and to be fair, the pasta was delicious. As our Caesar salad was served, so too was every single entree, simultaneously - if they wanted to get us out in 15 minutes they were right on track. The veal parmagiana cheese was barely melted. The meatballs tasted like they were made from 90% bread. The shrimp scampi was excellent, as was the rigatoni bolognese. Our waiter was apologetic and he clearly felt terrible for the multiple issues from the kitchen. Management take notice - you need to fix this. We won't be back. Head to Il Mulino instead!

let me start with it is conveniently located in the Forum shops. it has old world Italian atmosphere and the service is good. Having the menu on the wall only works if you are at a couple of tables and if the staff has to take a picture of it and then show it to you on the phone that is probably a good indication that spending a little money on actual menus is appropriate. putting somewhere that your menu is all family style would be a nice touch and no accommodation for couples who don't want 500 lbs of food might be a good thing. Now, all of that being said the food is good.

I was so looking for to this lunch. I dined at the Carmine's in the Bahamas and it was life changing. I was not disappointed. The reason I didn't give the food 5 stars is because at the one in the Bahamas, there was more sauce and there was bubbling cheese on the manicotti. If I had not experience that I would have given it 5 stars. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will ask for more sauce and bubbling cheese and I will be completely satisfied. Oh, and the other people loved it too!

All 4 in our party had eaten at Carmine's in NYC, so during a recent trip to Las Vegas, we decided to try the Las Vegas location in the Forum Shoppes at Caesars Palace. Don't let the prices scare you...there is plenty of food for what you pay...certainly enough to satisfy a party of 4. The food was delicious and the portions we received with one salad and one entree were perfect for two couples to share! We also decided to try a pitcher of red sangria and all 4 agreed that it was the best sangria we ever drank! It was a great evening that started with a great meal!

Had the opportunity to eat at Carmine's in New York city and loved it and when we walked past the place in Las Vegas we had to try it again. This time we had a group of four which was great as the family style portions make it easy to finish or try to. The food was as good or better then the first time there and sitting outside gave us a view of the painted ceilings and was different. The only down side is the menus are on the wall and we had to go in and take a picture and return to the table which is a minor detail. Just glad we found the place as we had no clue it was there and glad we made the reservation as it fills up really quick with large groups. Will go back again and again it's that good.

So I hate to have to write a negative review on Carmines. I really enjoyed our dinner there. We were able to make a reservation almost a month in advance for a group of 9 for a busy Friday night in Las Vegas! Which was so helpful. We then were get there and were greeted and properly waited on. Our waitress was very personable and fun! The meals are huge and soo good! We ordered to a salad, 1 appetizer, and 3 main dishes and it fed all 9 of us! The food was prepared very well and the flavors in all the dishes were amazing! They also had a great wine list and very good mixed drinks menu to add and enhance the dining experience!\nHowever the problem came when we had to settle the bill. We had a gift card, cash, and credit cards to pay for our meal! The waitress took all of these and went to ring up the bill. After a few minutes she came back saying the gift card had no money on it. This was strange to us but the couple that had the gift card simply just gave a credit card for that amount and we thought nothing of it. However when we got back to the hotel and looked up the gift online it showed the Carmines redeemed the money from the gift card. Meaning that our waitress redeemed the gift card and then charged the credit card for the same amount...and pocketed our cash. Its really the only explanation we had for what happened When we returned to the restaurant the next day the management would not refund our money saying there were not able to fix this and it was some one in our groups fault for not paying enough????? This was shocking to me cause I was the one that took everyone's money and made sure everyone signed and tipped correctly on their bills. Its just sad that such a great dining experience was ruined. I would recommend you eat at Carmines but make sure you watch your bill ...so they don't rip you off.

They are posted largely on the wall - however where our table was - I could see words - but not 'make them out'-- will go back next trip - with more ppl. Def can see getting your monies worth when you have 4 ppl !

Carmine's is an Italian restaurant in the Caesars Forum Shops with large portions served 'family style' for sharing. The location is great and the restaurant itself is nice. They use text messaging in conjunction with their OpenTable reservations which I found very convenient. \n\nWe were a party of 8 (4 adults, and 4 children), arrived on time, the restaurant was about 75% full, and were sat promptly. \n\nWe immediately ordered water and cocktails which were served within 10 minutes. We then had to call our rather disinterested waitress over to order 15 minutes after being served our drinks (a bit long). We ordered Mussels w/ Red Sauce, Chicken Parmagiana, Penne ala Vodka, and glutton free Rotini w/ Sausage and Broccoli. The food took 45 minutes to arrive, and with hungry children that's simply too long - we didn't start eating until 8:10PM after being sat at 7:05PM.\n\nPortions were huge, no one went hungry, and we had plenty of leftovers to take home. The food itself was good, nothing special beyond the robust menu which hangs on a back-lit frame against the walls of the restaurant.

Carmine's serves high-quality Italian fare from a family-style menu. That makes it a better destination for large groups than for a pair. Even so, we found a compromise (one chicken dish plus a reasonable additional charge for some pasta to go under it) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The desserts look amazing; we were way too full to try one!

Carmine's is a great Italian restaurant that serves family style. The food is extremely good and they give you quite a lot with each dish. We enjoy the Chicken Parmigiana (it's one of our favorites). \nThere is plenty of seating with tables out front to enjoy people watching while you eat if you prefer.\nThe old photos on the walls and huge display of top end bottle of alcohol in the bar area lend to a great ambiance even though the place is fairly large and open.\nThe menus are on the wall but are easy to see. I printed mine before we went so that one of our older guests could hold it and see it up close.\nI would recommend this for anyone looking for a good place to eat while at the Caesars Forum Shoppes.

We were in Vegas for our 15th anniversary. We made a reservation here based on the high rating and Ceasar's Palace was only 2 doors down from our hotel so it wasn't too much of a hike. We arrived about 5 minutes before our reservation time and were told it would be a little bit so we went to the bar and paid through the nose for some iffy red wine, and stood in a corner yelling to each other over the noise. 20 minutes after our reservation time I went back to the hostess stand and they were still trying to find is a table. They got us a very small table right by the front entry which was a super busy place to sit. We waited, no joke, over 5 minutes to be recognized by a waiter. He said he would bring us some water and bread and take our order. 5 minutes later we get bread and water and he says he'll be right back. Seriously over 10 minutes later we have had no other contact. We left, and ordered room service.

Just because we are from out of town is not a reason to try to overcharge your customers. Server offered to do us a 'favor' by removing the meat from a dish. He also noted it was Happy Hour and offered cocktails. tried to charge us more for our entrée than the most expensive entrée on the menu . . .because it was a custom order! Charged us full price for cocktails because Happy Hour is only at the bar! Why did you offer them?? \n\nI'll never be back.

We had seen Carmine's during our recent shopping trip to The Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace and decided to give it a try for dinner prior to attending the April 30 Elton John concert. The ambience is casual and New York Italian (as am I) with a lot of energy in the air. It was prom night so there were several groups of prom goers who as an aside looked great all decked out.\nTo say Carmine's serves 'family style' is a little misleading unless you come from a large family. The portions are huge. Our waiter advised my wife and I to stick to a single entrée and order it over pasta (for $12 upcharge) rather than ordering a separate pasta dish for twice the price. We took his advice and had the chicken parmesan over spaghetti and really enjoyed it. One note, Carmine's has a Food Valet service, at no charge, which was a new term for me but what they do is box up your leftovers, keep them in a refrigerator and deliver it to you when you check back in at their front desk when you return after whatever you're doing after dinner. We tried it out and it worked perfectly so tonight is a repeat of last night's dinner.\nThe couple next to us ordered a Caesar's salad which looked to be 1 1/2 heads of Romaine lettuce. They each had two or three dishes worth of salad and hadn't made a dent in it so after repeated offers by them I tried the salad. It was quite good; stronger on the anchovy taste than garlic but really pretty mild. I saw their spaghetti and meatballs which like everything else was huge. Given portion sizes the prices at Carmine's are very reasonable; cheap by The Strip restaurant standards.\nThe service was excellent and everything we tried tasted very good. I will definitely return but I'd like to have two other couples with us so we can try a couple more entrees. Three couple with three entrees will mean leftovers for all.

It isn't Manhattan, exactly, but for 3,000 miles away, I'll take it. There were only two of us, so we had leftovers: garlic bread parmesana and spaghetti and meatballs (we were in the mood for just the basics). Dinner was excellent.

It's just a short 3-1/2 hour drive from home. 😊 \n\nEveryone in our group loved the food, including my 2-1/2 year old niece. We started with the Garlic Parmesan Bread (cheesy goodness) and the Mixed Green Salad (loaded with veggies). \n\nFor the first entrée we ordered my favorite, which is the Ragu-best meatballs, shredded beef, pork, and sausage! The second entrée was the Chicken Scallopine with Lemon & Butter sauce (added linguine for $12 extra). The kids loved it! We were all stuffed and still had plenty for leftovers. \n\nThe service was excellent, as usual. The only complaint that I have is that there isn't a Carmine's in LA or Orange County.

Huge portions with decent food. Just a few issues, for one they don't have menus. Only menu's posted on the back and side walls. Because we were sat up near the front entrance, we sat down and then had to get up and walk to the side wall of the restaurant to see. My mother-in-law and husband don't have the best eye sight, but mine is great and it was hard to read. Because it's family style dining, we all had to stand and decide what we wanted to share rather quickly because we were standing right in the middle of everyone dining, it was very awkward. The food was good and the service was fine, no complaints. But with the immense selections of food in Vegas, this wouldn't be top of the list.

This location is perfect for large parties. All the food is served à la carte and is enormous in size. One plate could easily feed a group of 10.

When my friend first suggested Carmine's as our 'official night out dinner' (as opposed to our eat when we feel like it schedule), I was intrigued. According to her, we could dress nicely without feeling shabby if we didn't go all out, experience a diverse drink menu, and enjoy an authentic and delicious Italian dinner...served family style! I was also skeptical.\n\nHowever, Carmine's delivered on all fronts. The meal (Bolognese and Chicken Marsala) was delicious and way more than enough for our party of 3 (we lost one to Vegas over-load, but he enjoyed the left-overs)! The service was efficient and pleasant, the drink menu had a number of interesting drink concoctions, as well as some staple domestic beers, and the ambiance was energized without being overwhelming.\n\nIt was a great experience all around!

The food menu is shown on the wall around the dining area. All portions are served family style, so it's best to visit with a group of friends. We visited with a group of eight ordered a salad, an appetizer and three entrees and had more than enough food for everyone. Even dessert is served family style. Do not be alarm that the prices of the food on the menu appear to be high, because the portion sizes are very big. It's a great place for ordering to share.

We weren't familiar with Carmine's as a restaurant or chain and as a result, we were completely floored at the prices (initially) and the size of the dishes!! It took quite a bit of time to figure out what dishes would feed only two people without stuffing ourselves silly. I do think some advanced warning that all the dishes would feed a group of four people comfortably would be in order so the abject shock we felt wouldn't happen. \r\n\r\nOtherwise, the experience was great - the food was delicious and the service was top notch.

Wanted to enjoy italian cuisine on my birthday with a few friends. We were 15 minutes early for the reservation at 8pm, and the manager told us we wouldn't be able to be seated until 8:30.....so we waited around in the hall way of Caesar's. We came back, and there were 3 other tables that were just seated, already with drinks and orders in. They have ONE menu on a PROJECTOR at the front of the restaurant. Cheesy...very cheesy. Of course, we were unable to read it from our table. We were unaware that the portions are family style. As we're trying to discuss our next move, the waiter stopped by the table literally every 2 minutes trying to pressure us to order right away. We paid for our wine and left. Will not be back.

Even though it was busy, the service was great. Food was fast, perfectly prepared, and tremendously sized portions. We ordered a salad and two entrees, and the 6 of us (including three guys with substantial appetites) could not finish it off. \n\nWe had a chicken dish (Chicken Parmesan maybe?) that had a lemon sauce with roasted potatoes. It was great. We also tried their lasagna, and the portion was huge and the lasagna was cooked perfectly well. Kudos for their marinara recipe in the Lasagna. It had just the right amount of acidity. Literally perfect. At least two of the ladies at our table thought that this was the best Italian food that they have had. \n\nI will be back. Hopefully soon.

I booked Carmine's on relatively short notice for a group of 12 people. Having read other reviews where the most common feedback I gathered was that the portions were huge, I still managed to over-order, and wound up having plenty to take home. However, I won't gripe too much about that, as our group thoroughly enjoyed the food that we ordered, from the calamari and salad we had for appetizers, to the chicken and penne vodka for the main course. We also wound up ordering the Titanic ice cream sundae which was quite amazing. Carmine's is definitely great for groups especially those wanting to share, and offers tremendous value as well. The only complaint I would like to share was having to wait 15-20 minutes for a table that we had made a reservation for.

Very excited to dine at Carmine's in Vegas after reading the many reviews about family style Italian food. Myself and two companions ordered baked clams as an appetizer along with ravioli & chicken parm as entrees. As we waited for food I saw huge salads delivered to adjoining tables and thought to myself what can ours look like ? Well disappointment soon set in. Our clams were so tiny and tasteless, I've never had worse. The marinara sauce on the ravioli was bland as could be and the chicken parm was pounded so thin, it was tough to chew. With being billed as a family style restaurant, I personally didn't receive anything that spectacular as far as mountains of food. I have favorite local restaurants in both NY & Chicago where the prices are much better, the food is excellent and you always go home with a 'doggie bag'. To me, Carmine's is an over priced Olive Garden and frankly, the food at the Olive garden is better.

- It was a very busy evening at Carmine's. Many people were lining up outside the restaurant waiting for their tables. We were only two of us and had only made our reservation with Opentable less than an hour before showing up. It was a nice surprise to be assigned to our table within minutes.\n- The place was packed with many groups enjoying their time. It was very noisy but fine with us, this was not intended to be a romantic dinner.\n- People to be warned. Portions are huge. One plate can easily feed three people. This is not gastronomy. Ingredients appear to be fresh but focus is on quantity not on taste.\n- It would be unfair not to mention the very good service offered by our waiters.

Not a good place to go if there are only 1, 2, or 3 people. The entrées are sized for families of 4 or more, as are the salads. The pastas are priced in the high $20s and mid $30s. A 260 lb man and a 160 lb woman could only eat 1/3 of the lasagna, which wasn't even hot when it was served. Not good for couples if you don't have a microwave for the inevitable left-overs that you'll have.

The food here is OK - bar food was just so-so, but Veal Parmigiana was quite good. Note that this is a place for 'family style dining' ala Maggiano's - so big platters only. Not a place to go with one other person because they didn't have any entrees suitable for one person. The weirdest thing about this place is that they have happy hour bar menus, wine menus and cocktail menus, but if you ask for a dinner menu you are out of luck. When we asked for a menu the waiter proudly stated that they don't have menus, but we needed to look at the boards on the wall, or pull it up on our cellphones. Since the boards were behind us, wrenching our necks to see the back wall was uncomfortable so we used our cell phones. We weren't the only ones that thought this was inconvenient - during our dinner we had two people stand in front of our table trying to get closer to the board so they could read it. Awkward having people stand in front of your table while you're eating. Overall I think this place would probably be OK for a group dinner when your expectations of the food are not too high. It's conveniently located in the Forum shops mall.

The quality of product was very low. The $27 appetizer had an assortment of low end products such as mortadella and pickled cauliflower - certainly not worth the price. The assorted shellfish over linguini was as tough as Goodyear tires. The sauce was very thin and didn't adhere to the pasta. The veal parmigiano (chopped veal formed into patties) was extremely salty. I had indigestion all night and my husband threw up a couple of times the next day I believe the veal was going bad and it was heavily salted to cover up the less than fresh product. The tiramisu was given a beautiful presentation, however, when you cut a piece and put it on the plate, it ran like melted ice cream. \n\nThe waitress was the highlight of the meal. She had a great sense of humor and did her job well.\n\nGoodbye Carmine's - you will not see us again!

While this is not the place for an intimate dinner for 2 or small group, its perfect for 6 or more. The food is traditional, American Italian food: red sauces, towering lasagna, chicken parmesan, caesar salad, etc. It's not foodie food, but it is really well done. Service is charming and graceful, very old school. Everything is family style, so you will only order a handful of plates. But, I bet you will enjoy them all.

I have dined at the Carmines in Atantic City and NYC and have had positive experiences. I was in Vegas for the marthon. Even though I made reservations 30 days in advance AND they called me twice to confirm, my table was not available. I was told it would be a 20 min wiat but 'don't quote me on that'. After 45 minutes of waiting and being ignored by the apathetic host staff, I went to find the manager who finally got me a table. \nThe food was mediocre and not on par with what I had in AC and NY. The chicken parm was pre cooked and rubbery.\nThe only positive part of fhe experience was our waiter Carl. He tried to make things right and had us cracking up. Bottom line is there are plenty of other places to eat on the strip (Maggianos, Spagos, etc.) avoid this place if you can.

We ate at Carmine's before our 10 o'clock showing of Absinthe and the food was amazing. The family style serving portions were excellent to share with the table however I did not have my glasses and it was extremely difficult to read the menu on the wall. Additionally, my chicken scallopinne did not have any pasta with it which I am guessing they forgot to add or forgot to tell me to order separately. I think the restaurant is wonderful for groups with a comfortable/relaxed atmosphere.

The food was very good. We had the portobello mushroom salad over arugula and are still trying to figure out what made them so good. We had pasta pomador and there was big slivers of garlic in it. It was tasty but not my personal preference to bite into big garlic slices. Great beer and wine selections!!! The service was just okay. The ambiance is not a date night ambiance. It is extremely noisy. We were seated at a table in the center of the restaurant. I felt out positioning was funny at the table as we had to look at menus on wall instead of at each other. It brings your focus away from the table and each other. For a little get away to Vegas to spend quality time with each other, we didn't pick the best restaurant.

Ok so we've been to the carmines in New York so we expected the same great service and food here......TOTALLY OPPOSITE...... We were a party of six me my wife and our 4 kids. Never were we offered a drink just took our order dropped off water and never seen anyone not want a tip before. I had to ask for bread myself then the 'waiter' if you want to call him that just took bread off another table and gave to us. Then they brought food out and left. Note: in New York they cut lasagna up and mix spaghetti for you and serve you. Manager said they don do that to party's of more then 2?????????

We discovered Carmine's in November 2014 when looking for some good Italian on the strip. It was so incredible that we have been craving it ever since and made reservations before we left again for our annual trip to Vegas. This time we came with a group of ten.

They serve family style so it's better to have a group of 4 or more, or be able to take the leftovers home. Since we were flying out the next day, we had to leave food behind that i would have loved to reheat or even donate to someone in need. We ordered the Carmine's salad which was enough for 4 and delicious. Then my husband ordered Veal Marsala and i ordered the Pasta Sampler which was the Sunday night special. The veal was tender and plenty. The pasta sampler had 4 manicotti, pesto gnocchi, penne with meat sauce and a piece of lasagna that was enough for 4. The total bill was $155. I did NOT have room for a cannoli or TIraMisu and it broke my heart! The Sangria was also awesome!

A group of 8 of us went here for dinner to celebrate 50th birthdays. I have been to the one in NY and Atlantic City. I love the family style dinner and have always enjoyed the food. I have to say the one in NY has the best food. I know the menus are the same but the food in NY is SO much better. Our waiter wasn't very friendly either. Usually when they bring the salad to the table the waiter will serve it for you. Not in Las Vegas. It wasn't even that busy when we were there. Overall the experience was ok.

If you hope to have a conversation....any conversation....do NOT pick this place. I'm sure it is typically loud, given it's size and the fact that it is busy.....but the night we ate there it was simply out of control. They had a wedding party in an upstairs area of the restaurant that is open to the diners below. The DJ for the wedding, the announcements for the wedding and the music from the wedding were unusually loud and competing with the noise in the main dining room.\n\nThe service was great but the food was 1) way below average...and the portions are huge (and priced accordingly...you'll pay big). We ordered 2 entrees for 4 people and we had far too much food. That would have been OK if we lived in Vegas and we took leftovers home...but we were there for a short weekend. Additionally we had 1 gluten allergy which they were able to accommodate (super)....but that meant the other 3 people were forced to eat one entree GF when they had no desire to....\n\nWe've been to Vegas several times, had many memorable meals.....and this one will go down as one of the worst overall experiences we've ever had. Our very capable waiter was the only bright spot.

But not much else to boast.\n\n I 'get' the large menu written on the walls of the restaurant, however seating did not provide a good view and hand menus were not available upon request. Service was 'meh' as no bread was offered with meal. Server anxious to take order, give you bill, and pick up tip as others around him did his work. \n\n Table out front dropped a glass and it shattered. No one from restaurant arrived to see if everyone was alright, yet it was enough to silence the entire section. As a matter of fact, glass pushed out into mall floor as they were seated out front - and mall clean- up had to come get the shards of glass, etc.

Classic New York-style Italian restaurant, with family-style portions. Best to go with 3 or 4 people if ordering off of dinner menu. Bar portions are a bit smaller and best suited for 2 people.\nWe had the country rotini and chicken parm, both of which were fantastic. The bread served before the meals was fresh and varied in type and texture and paired nicely with olive oil and Parmesan. Servers both times were great, once for lunch in the bar and then again in the dining room for dinner. We had Michael Baker at the Forums Shops, Las Vegas location and he was by far the best waiter that I have ever had anyplace - He is truly an entertainer and a professional. Try to get him as your waiter if you can. You will not be disappointed.

This is a buffet restaurant hiding under the guise of 'family style'. You get a tray of food suitable to feed 4, everything sold separate, even the pasta for the scalopini. Tasty food but more like a good Campbell's soup recipe than a family jewel handed down from the old country. Our cocktails were the bright side of the evening. \n\nTo top it off, I get an email from Open Table asking why we didn't keep the reservation...\nGo here if you want to feed a large group that doesn't have a very sophisticated pallet.

We had heard great things about Carmine's, and went as a family of 7 to enjoy dinner mid-week. \n\nServer was rushing us, and trying to push us through (although the restaurant wasn't hectically busy). Bus boy took the time to give suggestions and assist us, but server expected us to already be familiar with the menu and ordering (although none of us had ever been to the restaurant). Food was fine, but over the week we were in Vegas had better chicken parmesan and steak elsewhere. Restaurant seemed average at everything (except price!), and we were disappointed, as we had come for dinner with high expectations.\n\nAs for value, we have had better value for money (and taste, in some instances) at the Olive Garden.

Carmine's is a fun, casual family-style dining experience. Don't let the words 'casual' or 'family style' make you think boring or mundane. There's not a dish that we've tried that didn't surpass our expectations at any of the Carmines locations (Manhattan, Atlantic City or Las Vegas) that we've been. Because the servings are absolutely enormous, your dinner party will need to join forces & come up with dishes that can be shared. The wait staff is very helpful in making your selections and continues to be attentive throughout your stay. Our party of six healthy eaters ordered two appetizers - the hot antipasto & the cold antipasto. Both wonderfully generous samplings of the best cross-section of appetizers. We then ordered two main entrees - a veal dish (scrumptious) & meatballs with rigatoni (to die for). As much as we tried, we couldn't finish it all! Please go and experience Carmine's for yourself. You won't regret it but wear your stretchy pants!

The pasta arrived and it was like almost cold, clams were tough. Veal parm was very good but definitely was not enough for 4 people. Had to ask waiter to fill water glasses, bring more bread, ask for butter and olive oil. After being to Carmine's in NY, Atlantic City, this was a real disappointment.

one of the best Italian restaurants - the first time we tried Carmines it was at the New York location and it was recommended by a friend. We loved it! We were not aware that they had any other locations so when we stumbled on it in Vegas, we had to go. You will love the food and the atmosphere. The food is served family style and is meant for sharing.

Held a family reunion dinner here with a group of 9. Food was delicious especially the eggplant parmesan and lasagna. Carmines offers an excellent expresso martini. I would suggest planning to feed 2-3 people per platter. Something for everyone!

Despite the quality of food and overall service is good, I was very impressed to see so much wasted food. Portion are really too much, despite they told you fist it could be ok for two but I think could good for four. I just wonder what could be the reason to waste food, we don't really need it.

We were only a group of 3 and you really need to be at least 4-6 minimum to really enjoy the experience since it is family style. We had way too much food, but it was over-the-top great food and we enjoyed it ! Thanks for the great experience!

Went here for dinner one night for a bachelor party. Good spot for a group of guys. Lots of food, food is served family style... if your family is huge. Food was decent as well. Lots of noise, so you can be loud too!\n\nProbably not the place to go if you're trying to see and be scene or to pick up new friends for the night, but a good solid meal before hitting the town hard.\n\nWhat else is there to say.

We had a group of 10 that dined here before going to the show. Michael made sure that we would have plenty of time to enjoy our dinner. The Carmine's salad and the penne alla vodka were excellent. I would reccomend ordering one less dish than they say. We ended up with a lot of leftovers and no one who could take it with them. I hated wasting that much food.

Carmine's was great. The food was great but be aware when you order there is more than you thing. It is family style and we were told each plate could serve 3-4 people. Easily each plate could serve 6. There was so much left overs.\n\nThe waitress even commented on how much food they have to throw away. \n\nGo there and order less than you think.

This place is what going to an Italian home for dinner must be like! \nThe staff makes you feel at home. The food is beyond delicious. Plus, they give you enough to feed a small army!! The waiter tried to explain just how much we were gonna get, but it didn't sink in. \nMy daughter and her fiancee ordered meatballs and pasta. I figured me and my wife would get veal parmigiano and we could all share. Well, we got to share. We also left half of it on the table! The portions are astronomically large! Everything was delicious! You want an Italian experience, this is the place!

We wanted a good meal in Vegas. So we searched on Trip adviser and price and location along with rating was favorable. We found the place. Got there about 6:45 before the crowd. Service was outstanding. Food was good. decent wine selection. Portions are family so if you go with date need to agree to share. Portions are very large so great for large groups. Entree easily feeds three hungry eaters.\n\nWe found the veal parma very good and the vegetables and stuff mushrooms very tasty. Can emphasize how staff was very attentive. Recommend this spot if needing of some good Italian.

Definitely a place for families or parties of 4 or more! The menu is gigantic to match the portions. Fortunately, our outstanding server (Kyle) guided us through the menu and portion sizes and we were able to order two dishes that were perfect for two. Our heart was set on the stuffed artichokes appetizer (actually meal size) and they did not disappoint. Stuffing was perfect and we finished the last morsel. We followed this with a veal parm where the cutlet was accompanied by an outstanding marinara. Could not have eaten another delicious bite and put this on our list of must return but with at least another couple or two so we can try other items on the menu.

Our dining experience started off to a bit of a rocky start as they didn't have enough chairs to seat our group. The manager kept coming back and forth to me giving me updates and ended up giving us some apps complimentary. The food was very good and i am glad we waited to eat. The plates are family style and so we ordered several things off the menu and we all loved all of them! i would definitely recommend!

The food here is really excellent. We ate here twice, and sat at the bar both times in order to access smaller portions (the rest of the restaurant is family style, each dish feeds 4-6 people)! The fact the we returned really speaks to the quality of the food and ambiance, because our server was terrible. He was one of the bartenders, and was bothered to have to take care of our table. On our first visit, he and his co-bartender took photos of the change left by the table behind us, laughing and poking fun at the previous patrons. When we asked about the difference in portion sizes, he insisted that the regular menu and bar menu were the same size but that 'all the good stuff' is family style. Luckily, we were able to get the attention of a hostess who let us know that the family style portions were TWICE THE SIZE of the bar size, and the bar size would still comfortably feed 2-3 people. The regular menu is also twice the price, and we felt like our server was trying to take advantage of us and rack up our bill unnecessarily. During both visits, our server barely returned to the table, and joked around with the other bartender, ignoring us. I wished we could sit in the regular part of the restaurant to escape this guy! We ordered linguini with squid and tomato sauce, and penne with clams and tomato sauce, and both of these dishes were AMAZING! So good! The sauce was thin but so so flavourful, lots of fresh herbs and garlic. The bread basket is also awesome with a variety of foccacias and other breads. Compliments to the kitchen and hostesses, bar service could use a tune-up.

The location is great, and the food is quite good. Unfortunately the service leaves a bit to be desired. My girlfriend and I had Valentines dinner and were left with an overabundance of leftovers that we intended on taking home (our server even mentioned it at the beginning of the meal). However, when the time came to box it up, he had other things in mind. Before we could ask for a box he had about 60% of a 30$ salad lifted off our table and sent to the trash without a word. There are simply no excuses for that. Upon asking he simply replied that the food was now trash and there was nothing he could do about it. Would not go again simply because of the service and leaving the night with a lighter wallet and emptier fridge. \n\nReason for this review: Upon contacting the restaurant that night, I have yet to get a reply, it seems like the service is lacking in both areas...

Food was on par with any medium level Italian restaurant, but the hype about their enormous portions is just that; hype! While most people would consider the salad and pastas to be oversize portions, their entrees and desserts were about average, given the price point they charge for them.

Carmines is a great Italian experience with very good food. I've eaten at the one in NYC, Atlantic City and Washington, DC. While my favorite is NYC, its nice to have one close to the West Coast.

I would definitely go back and recommend this place to anyone who loves Italian food.\n\nThe service is always outstanding.

First, we were seated promptly in a great table with a view. OK - se we were warned about the large portions by our waiter but wow. Portions were huge. Add to that, everything we ordered was simply delicion. Waiter recommended the Ragu sauce on linguine - now, we eat all over the country and we all agreed the meatballs were amongst the best ever. Add to that great sausage and beef braciole with good gravy (red sauce) and it all added up to outstanding. I will definetely go back, especially if I have a large group. Wonderful family style dining.

We loved the food and the service was great but come with a several people. They told us the entrees were family portion size but this would have feed my entire family and not just the two of us on vacation. Our Lasagne was at least 5 times the size of a normal entree. I loved the food but felt guilty leaving half uneaten. We wish we could have taken a doggie bag on our flight home the next morning!

We saw something about Carmine's in New York on TV and then a friend recommended it. It was everything they said and more! The family-style portions are huge - no one will go home hungry! The lasagna was definitely the best any of us had ever eaten and the special Chicken alla Romano was delicious. My husband doesn't care for Italian food (he was only humoring the rest of us) but he was pleasantly surprised - was even willing to go back again the next night! The drinks were a perfect compliment to a perfect meal and the service was excellent :)

We dined at Carmine's for dinner with a party of 16. Overall, the restaurant is well executed, the food was very good for Vegas Italian, and the service was good, if not great. The place is large and open, so a bit noisy. Be forewarned, dining is family style with portions large enough to feed 3-4 people. We ordered Chicken Parm, Veal Parm, Chicken Marsala, and Chicken Spidini (sp); along with plates of meatballs and Italian sausage. All were delicious and the portions were large. The only thing we missed noticing when ordering is none come with pasta which apparently needs to be ordered separately, so we had a meat feast with no pasta which was a let down for several in our group. We did start with three very large salads including the house salad and the Ceasar salad, both incredibly large. Overall, everyone enjoyed themselves and I would go back, armed with more information on the restaurant's customs in the future.
