What a pleasant surprise!
What a pleasant surprise! We picked this restaurant because it was convenient to our granddaughter's school. When we saw there was an inexpensive 3-course dinner we were quite concerned since that is generally not a good sign as far as food quality is concerned. To our delight everything we ate was very well prepared and delicious. The pork cutlet was among the best I ever had. We will definitely be back!!!

Carbonara is a reliable neighborhoo
Carbonara is a reliable neighborhood restaurant.....not over priced and food quite acceptable. Can be noisy at peak hours, otherwise a fine choice for moderate restaurants in our area.

Friends had recommended this
Friends had recommended this place to us. We finally made it here and were not disappointed. The food, service and ambiance were all wonderful. We would definitely go back and recommend to others. Prices were very reasonable. One thing - and this seems to be a trend in a lot of restaurants, the price of wines by the glass seem to keep rising.

A neighborhood favorite that tweaked its menu with a few excellent additions since my last visit and a couple of great specials. I've never had a bad dish here. And the price can't be beat.

Came here for brunch on a Saturday. Had 2 o'clock reservations and we were seated promptly. The restaurant was pretty quiet compared to some other brunch places in the city, so good for conversations. Food was decent, and they have an unlimited champagne option which was a plus. Would definitely come back again!

We come here often because
We come here often because the food is always great. Sunday the place was very empty and there was only one girl working. I think there were just too many people for her. We had to wave her down for everything. I had to grab the bartender to have him get me a 2nd glass of wine. Other than that it was great as usual.

Food is always excellent. They let me "make up" my own dishes (pasta with a vegetable). Everyone I bring loves it!

We happend upon La Carbonara as we were unable to get a reservation at our "first choice". The reviews on open table looked promising. We weren't dissappointed. The service was great, everyone was very friendly. The food was very good and the atmosphere really nice. We will definetly go back.

It was very quiet, but that was probably because we had to eat early at 5 pm. As we left it started to get noisy.

My second time to dine at Carbonara. The food is good classic Italian. All of the people in my group of five were very pleased with the food, ambience and service. I would go back any time.

Reasonably priced food, served in a pleasant setting. The pre fixe at $21 is a delicious bargain.

Good food, reasonable prices
I enjoyed the food (got lamb shank) but thought the place was too dark. It was also too noisy for my taste. The food was very good and was a very good value. I recommend the place if you don't mind lots of noise and a dark place.
