The food was excellent. An elevated Italian restaurant. The service was a little slow and the server didn’t offer us any bread. He seemed busy due to cut backs. The grouper and cream of tomato soup were outstanding and the calamari with jalapeños were yummy. We’ll be back!

Amazing food and amazing experience. During this Covid time we felt completely safe. Servers were in masks. Extra outdoor seating, distanced appropriately. We ate outside at 6 on. We brought our two children, ages 2 and 7 and the entire staff made us feel completely welcome and comfortable. Short ribs were amazing, risotto was amazing. My child ordered the salmon and LOVED it!
Definitely one of the best dining experiences we’ve had during these Covid days. Will be back again very soon!

Enjoyed the food very much. I had the chicken parm. It was one of the best I have ever had.
We sat outside and it was very nice. The owner had a fan put in the corner which made it very pleasant.
The service was very good.
We all had a good time and they did a great job following the guidelines for Covid 19.

Hands down, our favorite place to dine with friends. This little gem is tucked away in Dunwoody and is absolutely perfection! The grouper is their signature dish and when we take friends there, they rave about it. We love it too! If you don't want to dine in just yet, they have outdoor seating also. Best cocktails in Atlanta!

This was our first visit since Covid 19 changed our lives on March 9th and was so happy to see that this restaurant was back in action. They did a fantastic job spacing out the tables and even added extra tables outside. The food, service and atmosphere was excellent.

Celebrating my birthday with my husband. Great to get out and table spacing was good. I felt very comfortable being there. Service was great and meal was delicious. Only item I didn’t care for was the mussels. The sauce they were cooked in had a weird flavor and the mussels were very tiny.

Another wonderful dinner at one of our favorite places. Option to dine or eat on the patio, and the service once again, the service and food were top notch. So glad they are reopen and no drop off in the quality we have come to expect.

We have been going to Carbonara for years. This time we were bringing my parents and they preferred an outside table due to Covid. Carbonara has done a wonderful job extending their outside dining to accommodate such requests. The service was perfect and the food delicious ... as usual! Thanks for all you do!

Food was prepared perfectly. Each of us had risotto served with our meals but different kinds. My lemon artichoke and his sundried tomato with asparagus were just right.

My husband and I had not seen a friend for awhile because of the pandemic quarantine. We were looking for someplace where we could dine al fresco. We all love Italian and chose Carbonara. We had a table tucked in a corner of the patio which was nice and out of the way of other guests. The reason I only gave 4 stars on Ambiance was because those who were doing take away meals were pulling up to the curb and sitting there in their cars with their cars running. I’d suggest maybe they have pickup orders pull into one of the the abundant parking spaces and call in to have their food brought out to their car. FYI there is still inside dining.
The service was very attentive. The food was delicious. We each had a different entree and all 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a fine dining Italian experience.

First time back eating out in months. First dining-in weekend for them since reopening after the shutdown. Still doing a lot of takeout business which impacted the kitchen's abilities to good our food out in a timely manner. Once we got our appetizers the rest was fairly timely and on track from then on. Excellent food and friendly service. Mother's Day evening.

I love the food here and am so happy that we finally have a quality neighborhood restaurant in our local area. The authentic Italian food is better than or on par with any of the fine Italian restaurants in Atlanta. The chef is also more than happy to adjust a dish or make something from off menu to your taste. On a recent early evening weekend visit, when it wasn't very busy, the service from our waiter Tony was a complete disappointment, basically taking our order and bringing our check. Otherwise, he ghosted us and didn't fulfill drink requests, bring our meal or ask if our food was satisfactory or even needed cheese. We did not let this detract from our enjoyment of the delicious food.

Wanted to do our part to support local business in these trying times. It was obvious that current events have affected their numbers, but the staff was friendly, efficient and upbeat to the diners who were there. Always top notch service and tremendous food. We can't wait to go back.
