Very fine meal on short notice, outside as we wished. Lasagna and chicken piccata were
superb. Waitstaff is very good but a little too busy as there was a good crowd on a Saturday night....

The dinner experience was diminished because of the unacceptable delay in receiving drinks before the meal...and an unacceptable delay in deliveringvthe entree !!

First time trying Carbonara Trattoria...living in Brookhaven we thought we'd get out of the bubble and try something new. Had a drink at the bar before dinner and if we went by first impressions we were in trouble. The bar tender was quite rude. Condescending towards the guest who had questions. As a second level sommelier it annoys me the most to hear people talk down to people about wine. As a bartender you should educate not make people feel stupid. We then were basically pushed off the bar because we made it clear we were not going to eat there. Maybe because we weren't "regulars" but how do you become one if the staff is rude?

As for dinner it was wonderful. Alex our server saved the meal. Everyone with exception of the bartender were excellent and a joy to come in contact with. The wine list could be a little more expansive but I'll always find something.

Good experience overall. However, prices are up and even higher than listed on the menu. They are not as competitive with comparable local choices. This may affect our future decisions to dine there.

My wife and I brought my parents here for dinner while they are visiting. We love Carbonara and as usual the meal and service we perfect. We weren’t rushed through drinks or antipasti and the main course was delicious.

Food was great, but the wait for dinner to be served (an hour and half) was simply too long. There were far too many tables for the few waitstaff to handle.

My 2 daughters and I had reservations for last night. It took a while to be seated, although there was seating outside and others who came after us (with varying party sizes) were seated before us. The server and service was EXTREMELY slow. We had to ask for refills. Nothing is impressive enough about this place to wait an hour to order. It seems there was something going on with the staff and our server seemed frustrated. He was passive aggressive and “snappy”... he literally clapped the tab booklet at me when he brought it over. I wasn’t his buddy and we hardly interacted, so his familiarity and lack of professionalism was off-putting. We won’t be coming back.

The appeal of Carbonara is that nothing is exactly "outstanding", but the way it all comes together is very very good. Having traveled a lot my test of an ethnic restaurant is whether, other than for language, you could imagine this restaurant in its "home" country and Carbonara comes very close. It is really very good, but not cheap. Main courses are true Italian but most well into the thirties. With a shared appetizer, salad, two entrees, one desert, cocktail and bottle of good wine the bill was $180 plus tip. Best indulgence - for us the fried oysters. Crisp and light.

Our waiter had numerous tables but was attentive to all of them. He had a great personality and if he didn't know something he said "let me check" and came right back.

Our food was delicious. Definitely will be back

All our dinners (4) were excellent - one fish, one veal, one lasagne, 1 chicken.
Loved the fried artichokes and tiramisu is to die for.
Outstanding, experienced, professional waiter who watched us from afar but never came to the table and interupted the conversation.
Delightful evening from beginning to end.

Carbonara's was, for the most part, a very nice dinner. The waiter, Alex, was excellent. However, the wait time to have the dinner (and initial drink) delivered to the table was subpar and unacceptable. Need to do better !

Terrible service. The waitress rarely came by, but she had no problem servicing her other tables. Took forever to get our drinks ordered, then even longer to get our drinks. She never asked if we were ready to order. We were there at least 40 mins and she didn’t even ask if wanted an appetizer or anything. So we paid for our drinks and left, and went to a restaurant that wanted us there.
