Several years ago when we tried this restaurant, it was almost empty and the service was unbearably slow. What a turnaround! This time the restaurant filled up quickly even on a weeknight, and the service was prompt, friendly and helpful. The eggplant parmesan was exceptional. So fresh and flavorful -- not breaded and fried. My friend had the gnocchi, which she said was delicious, too. Altogether it was a delightful evening. Cafe Carolina could become a new favorite.
