ABOUT US

For over 25 years, the Alicart family of restaurants has been offering an exciting and unique spectrum of dining concepts. The Legendary Carmine’s Family Style Italian restaurant—with locations in New York City’s Theater District and Upper West Side, the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, Washington Penn Quarter, the Atlantis Resort & Casino in the Bahamas and our newest location in Las Vegas at the Forums Shops at Caesars Palace—serves exceptional southern Italian cuisine in abundant portions designed for sharing.

Our other specialty restaurant is Virgil’s Real BBQ located in Times Square, Las Vegas and Atlantis Bahamas serving genuine southern home-style experience with authentic BBQ and American dishes created by our many smokers on premise.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our restaurants.
