Service was so so at best. We had to get our own pepper and only after I finished both my wife's and my own water did they come around for a refill.

Also wanted some after dinner drinks but they dropped off the check so we said "Lets Go!!"

First time eating here with family was last night 9/9/21. It was excellent. Best Italian food we've ever had. We sat on the outside patio so everyone felt comfortable during Covid. We already made plans to go back. Highly recommend.

We haven’t been since the pandemic. We wanted outside seating and the restaurant has expanded their patio dining next door. It’s very nice, not overcrowded.
We both ordered pasta dishes and the order was correct and cooked appropriately. Both dishes were delicious. Our server was knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive. We had a wonderful evening! Food at Carbonara has always been pretty good but the service and the new patio seating put our evening into the outstanding category.

The service was friendly & attentive without being intrusive and provided great advice on menu & wine selection. All 4 different dishes ordered were fresh & delicious and prepared as ordered. The wine list has many good wines at various price points. We recommend the Salmon with risotto, the hangar steak, and the spaghetti carbonara. Don't forget to leave a little room for the rum cake. This was our first visit but we agree with others that this is a gem!

Service was excellent. I've always had the spaghetti carbonara or the lasagna bolognese (both excellent). This time I tried the chicken picatta....just OK.

The food was very good. None of the wait staff had on masks. A little disappointing. And the manager/host/hostess made fun of the fact that my group wore masks into the restaurant. I’m from a state with high covid cases. Protecting others, myself and my family is not funny.

The food was excellent.

We sat on the "patio" late on a Sunday - around 7pm and it was wonderful. Nice breeze - open spaces - minimum worry about covid. It was much easier to hear everyone at the table. And as usual the food was fabulous - that is what brings us back again and again. Haven't had pasta carbonara anywhere else that is this good. The caprese salad had melt in your mouth fresh mozzarella. And the beef ribs were so tender. Had a pleasant surprise with half price bottles of wine.

It is a nice Italian restaurant north of Atlanta. The bruschetta and the capreses salad appetizers were good nothing special. My husband and I had a fish dish special which was good. We are from Chicago and we like 246 in Decatur but they were busy. This is nice but not my favorite while visiting my daughter in Atlanta

The food and service were wonderful. We booked a table for outside seating, but it was not available when we got there. We decided to eat inside where it was very noisy. Our waiter was very sweet and literally ran between tables to accommodate everyone’s requests. None of the employees were masked though.

Saturday evening was exceptionally busy looked like 200 plus people being served throughout the evening
The service staff did an outstanding job of delivering hot meals to a full restaurant. Cuddos to the kitchen staff who were still producing top quality meals at 10:30pm

Owner Rafik Cressaty has the best kept Italian restaurant "secret" in Dunwoody
if not also in Atlanta. Considering the crush on being understaffed Rafik's
troops make it delicious to be in his Dunwoody Shopping center location

Trey is a great server to make your meal so memorable.

This is the BEST Resturant in Dunwoody/Perimeter area.
Recently, they expanded the outdoor dining area which is lovely. Tables are covered with starched tablecloths.
I had a wonderful pumpkin swordfish. A delicately colored pink/orange fish with great flavor.
Although we had been seated outside, there were a few yellow-jackets on the veranda that frightened my dining partner because he is very allergic to bites. So we moved inside to finish our meal.
The staff was very understanding and helpful.

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.
