service was very inattentive. food was not good. calamari was much too heavily breaded, pasta sauce was too thick & starchy. prices have gotten much too high considering the lack of quality.
maybe just an off saturday night, but....

The pasta was excellent in both our dishes. The shrimp in both dishes were a little tough. Such as the restaurant was busy, which it was, and cooked the shrimp a little to quickly. All in all this is a place we will frequent.

We should come here more often than we do but there are so many places to try. We always enjoy coming here! The food is always good as well as the service. We have never left here dissatisfied. Very friendly and enjoyable. This is a great neighborhood restaurant!

It was a wonderful meal. Initial drink service was slow. We were greeted and seated quickly but server didn't come to table for awhile. After that though service was good and food was the normal consistent deliciousness!

All 8 of us enjoyed the food. We have dined at this restaurant several times before and found the service to be prompt but was a little slow this visit.
When the waiter was taking my order I asked if the potatoes could be substituted for a vegetable, and he said yes. When the bill came I noticed that there was a $3.00 charge for the substitution. I brought this fact to the attention of the waiter who just shrugged. I also mentioned this to the owner as I left, telling him that his waiters should tell the customer there will be a charge for a vegetable substitution. The owner seemed shocked when I told him of the extra charge and said he would adjust it next time. Sure he will! How will he remember me?

A good neighborhood place for Italian. not worth a drive from elsewhere. We didn't care for the dressing on the Caesar salad, it was taken away, and removed from the bill. The seafood pasta, and cioppino both kinda tasted exactly the same. Portions were good, amount of seafood within was good, as were the drinks. Just not worth going out of your way

Carbonara Trattoria is always an enjoyable experience. The food is fantastic and the service is very professional.

This is our go-to restaurant when craving Italian.

Reservations are preferred and if you want to sit in one of their half booths it is best to request that at time of reservations.

Food was good but apps were delivers at noticeably different times and long wait for entires and one did not come at all until we asked and were told they forgot it. They comped the entree and gave us a glass of wine after asking if we could slide away from table while they moved it a foot or so to make room for other tables

Think they had too many reservations at same time and Kitchen was off - what came out was good but not right timing

After a mishap where the owner confused me for the Uber driver (not sure what that was all about), the dining experience was awesome. The bartender, Mary, was very attentive, friendly and personable. The house Pinot noir was surprisingly really good and they have half price bottles on sundays and Wednesday’s ($13 a bottle!!). This was my second time here and the food again did not disappoint! I loved every little morsel of my capellini di fraviola. The pasta was really fresh and flavorful. My friend had the dish with salmon and that was perfect also. This is officially my go to spot for really good pasta and excellent service.

The food was good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Only issue was the waiter put in the wrong order and we had to wait longer. Also he said he would bring more bread, but didn’t come back. Other than those minor issues we all really enjoyed our meals.

Our second visit was not as cozy and quiet, due to loud spoken woman sitting by us for an hour. Upon arrival, our table was ready, but we had to wait 20 minutes for our bread to be brought to the table. The grouper was very good, but a bit overpriced at $31. The waiter was exceptional. We will go back!

It was New Years Eve....understandably a bit hectic. We were seated very quickly however it took quite a while to get our drinks and longer for bread. Overall the staff was very accommodating and the food was great...as usual. Will go again.

We made a reservation for New Year's Eve and the restaurant was about a third occupied when we arrived. We were seated with a menu and waited about 30 minutes - saw many of the staff standing around talking during this time but no one approached us. My husband finally asked someone if we could order a drink. Another 10 minutes later the bartender came over to see if we wanted to order. Then the maitre'd came by, apologizing for confusion in not assigning someone to wait on our table, promising that he "would take care of us" due to his mistake. In our experience, taking care of us in this situation would include comping all or part of the check but this did not happen. For the rest of our meal there were random people waiting on us so clearly no one was ever assigned to our table and we were presented with the full check for payment. Food was excellent but service extremely disappointing.

Good atmosphere with decent food. I liked my carbonara dish, but my husband did not like his lasagne. This place has a lot of potential, but the staff is not especially welcoming. The waiter was OK, not rude, but not very personal or enthusiatic. Friendly staff and good food keep us coming back to a restaurant. We keep looking for that local restaurant but can’t seem to find it.

Service a bit slow tonight, but it happens sometimes. We're frequent enough dinners to know this isn't the norm here. They were having some computer problems which probably threw everything off. Food was good and our waiter Link was vey pleasant and attentive.
