Description: Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. The Carmine's concept is to bring its guests a "wow-factor" sized portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast. Platters of homestyle antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing amongst friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's.

Dining solo, I sat at the bar for a bite. The service was great and food was good. Portions were huge as are the prices.

Make sure you are hungry and have 3-4 who will share with you. Food is excellent and portions are family style. Menus are posted on the walls which is unique for a non-fast food restaurant but I wish they had a brief explanation for some of the selections. FYI: unless you go early, there is always a wait. This restaurant seems to be a staple for us when we visit DC. Will definitely go back again and again.
