We were a table of six and this was a fun evening with a great server and excellent food. We each ordered pasta for the main course and I had an exceptional dish of rigatoni with eggplant and Italian sausage in a marinara sauce. Great!

This was far from our first visit, however, anytime we have a guest in from out of town, we tend to default to Carbonara. The food, the wait staff, the wine list - there are no misses, all hits. A great special occasion meal as well. Link is the most amazing waiter, and we have never walked out disappointed. Highly recommended.

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.

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.
