Great experience! Our waiter was excellent and food was delicious. We did have to wait what seemed like a long time for entrees to come out. Appetizers came out quickly.

The meal and experience was very nice. The sea bass was the best I’ve had with a nice taste and juicy flavor. Service was excellent as expected. Thanks for providing good options on your menu, without sacrificing quality by providing too many.

Decent food and good service. Our first visit, and it happened to be half price Wednesday for a bottle of wine. The best dish of the night was their tiramisu!

i cannot believe that a restaurant like this would serve bottled dressing. My wedge salad was DEFINITELY served with bottled dressing. Put a bad taste in my mouth for the entire meal. Other than that, my meal was good.

A lovely experience from beginning to end.
Our waitress was great. Answered question and managed to give us ample time to visit between courses.
Both our entrees were excellent - veal piccata and small filet.
The restaurant has low lighting and it was not crowded, so we could easily hear each other (one has a hearing aid).
We will be back!

Carbonara is a delightful spot. Warm inviting decor, solid Italian classics meet American comfort food. We had wonderful attentive service, and a selection of half-price bottles of wine on Sunday nights added to the value. The soundtrack was a little incongruous, a lot of 70s soft rock, which was not unpleasant, just surprising. Would expect the sophistication of the music to match the food and ambiance. We will be back both for the overall feel and a number of dishes I want to sample (including the namesake).

I had a 7:15 reservation. When I arrived I was told it shouldnt be long, to help myself to the bar if I’d like. We got drinks, informed the hostess we would wait outside (the bar area was crowded). After waiting 15 minutes, I checked status of our table and was told our table would be prepared soon, that people were staying longer than anticipated. We were seated 8:15. Our waiter did a good job, but our food ordered was slow to table. Considering the lengthy delay, small space for a large crowd, and average food.. I wont be back.

This is a neighborhood gem and go to place.
And we always take friends there who have never experienced dining there before.
All of our friends have been duly impressed (most of the time).
Although our server Tony was great the kitchen was backed up. Two app salads were brought out at once but soup and mussels had to be asked for since they were forgotten. Once the main entrees were FINALLY brought out the groupers, trout and chicken piccata were all hot and excellent.

The Bolognese was outstanding. The waitress was very accommodating in allowing us to order the changes we requested in pasta types, etc. Overall a very friendly place that was very worth the cost.

We were there a total of 3.5 hours. It took 1.5 hours from the time we ordered to when the main course was served. It was Mothers' Day and the restaurant was crowded, but the length of time getting the food was unacceptable.

Disappointed last night on my visit to Carbonara.
Normally great service was poor.
After we received our appetizers and salads the entrees were not served for 45 minutes.
Outside seating was cold with no heaters available.
Hopefully this will improve on my next visit.
This was Strike One.

Ah something was definitely amiss this visit. Our food was Luke warm. Each pasta dish just OK. Vodka sauce lacked punch. Carbonara sauce thick and tasteless. Our waiter, can’t recall his name, a constant at CT as charismatic as usual, just ok. Disappointing

We went there to celebrate my husband's new job. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was very nice. The owner was very kind and receiving. My husband got the Grilled Salmon and I got Penne All'arrabbiata. The salmon was absolutely delicious, the pasta was pretty good lacked a bit salt. But overall very tasty meals. We also ordered a bottle of Resiling, wish it was served to us a bit more, but they were super busy, so I completely understand. Would recommend going there for any celebrations or even just a night out.
