Carbonara Trattoria is a very pleasant experience for diners with respect to ambiance, noise level and service. The food is consistently good (I usually order the trout or a steak dish), but the Cesar salad could be improved upon. Desserts are great, bread is okay and all the appetizers are worth a try!
Great restaurant that is moderately priced.

Fathers Day dinner, our first time here. Meal was great....never seen food served so hot and stay hot throughout the meal. Sauce on all dishes was great. The only thing I could say is they need a screen or something to entrance of dining room...the sun coming thru was bothersome.

The atmosphere was very nice. We liked it a lot. The food was very good, but not very creative. The italian menu was not extensive enough!! There was more meat dishes than Italian, which was disappointing!! Although I had the lobster seafood entree which was excellent. Another person in our party had the tagliatale bolognese, which you could make at home. nothing unique.

Bruschetta, chicken francese and tiramisu were excellent.
Cheesecake was very good
Beet salad, veal piccata - not so good. The lemon risotto saved it.
Wine pour generous. Service very good.

Welcoming and warm atmosphere with attentive service. Menu options trend more traditional, but everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. With all the "corporate" restaurants in the Perimeter Mall area, it is nice to have a locally owned and operated place to support and enjoy. First time visit but will definitely return.

I made a reservation and requested to be up front, when we arrived place was packed however could see our table waiting upfront as requested. We received water and bread fairly quickly however our waiter was a bit slow to check in and get drink orders etc. The only reason for not 5 star across the board was due to slow service at beginning of meal. Food and ambience was excellent!

Server was excellent at first but then was overwhelmed with a large party and forgot about us. The other staff didn’t help him out much with refills and removing dish ware from table. Little
Disappointing

We want so much to like this restaurant as we love Italian food and this place is in our neighborhood, but we are never satisfied when we go there but always hoping that we will have a better experience. Tonight was by far our worse experience. I can't remember having worse service in any restaurant. We sat outside and it literally took 20 minutes to even have a server ask if wanted something to drink. The servers also failed to bring any eating utensils and we had to ask several times. We e had reservations for 7:00, and it was 9:30 before we finished, and this is due to service!! I ordered the mussels and they were terrible - the mussels themselves were not good and the wine sauce was inedible. This restaurant needs to improve.

The food is excellent at this restaurant. Unfortunately, the service is sub par. This is not the first time that I’ve written a review like this for Carbonara. We really didn’t have a waiter or waitress tonight. The bartender took our initial bev order after a 15 minute wait. After another 25 minute wait, and a complaint to the girl at the check in desk, the owner took our meal order. It took another 30 minutes to receive our entrees. The service was horrendous, the worst we have encountered at this establishment. The food was delicious.

It was Wyatt's birthday meal and he chose Carbonara for his birthday feast.

It was crowded and doing a brisk business and that's what we like to see. Seated promptly and hot bread and butter delivered immediately.

This place has never disappointed and it did not tonight... reasonably priced wine list and reasonable quality in the house wine selections. We all enjoyed a couple of glasses.

Excellent artichoke heart appetizer. Lightly battered and very tasty. We all had salads and pasta dishes, and every dish was tasty and consumed to the last bite. A complementary birthday dessert was proffered and we called it a night. Good attentive service.

It sux when special occasions are not well done but this one was done right!
