They rushed us from beggining to end. 40 min to eat salad dinner out before finished, dinner, took plates before we put forks down,and brought dessert right out and hardly had chance ro order aftwr dinner drinks. We ordered from waiter and water girl kept pussing for us to order from her...confusing and not a grear night but food tasted good.
This was a pre-fixe meal. All choices were excellent. An amazing meal for only $20.19! The place was packed but service was still excellent and staff was very helpful to one of our party in a walker.
We took our daughter and her boyfriend out for their birthdays. While the restaurant was busy and full, service was top notch and food excellent. Love the table side spinach salad. All our entrees were great- I loved my cavatelli pasta. I knew my dessert before I got there- bananas flambé. Everything was great and they put candles in their desserts which was special.
We are never disappointed at the original Carbone's! They aim to please their patrons. Even though it was restaurant week they still make the experience feel special. They are one of the few restaurants that have kept the price a true restaurant week special. The food is delicious. I am still thinking about our meal.
The courses here are always delicious and of great quality. The caprese salad was super fresh, the salmon was perfect and tasty, and the berry dessert was excellent. As always, the service was excellent and attentive. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food and the service. We will see you again soon!
We made reservations for an early -5:30- dinner and were seated in the upper area level. We had the price fix 20.09 special. We chose the salmon. The food was very very good and the wine waitress was especially friendly and just right chatty. I chose the chocolate dessert. It was so good! We have already recommended it to several friends and hope to get back with company in a week or so.
Very good as usual
As always My experience at Carbone’s was great whether it be for Taste of Hartford or another occasion, never disappointed! I highly recommend Carbone’s to anyone who has never been there.
A wonderful evening was had by all! Hope to do back next week with another group.
Carbone's has consistently excellent food and service.
Husband and and I had lunch with friends. Every bit of food was excellant. Wanted to slap my husband's hand each time he tried to sample my food. He thoroughly enjoyed his own meal but couldn't resist tasting mine as well.
Absolutely enjoyable experience. We’ve been there many times and we’re never disappointed. Must have tableside Caesar salad and Bananas Foster. Entrees were perfection.
Carbone's is still the best Italian restaurant in Central Connecticut. It's really Italian with a great history and even greater food and serve. I've been coming here for over 50 years.
Food was wonderful, service impeccable! Can’t wait to go back again.
great food and fantastic service, lots of different choices on the menu! Eat here you wont be disappointed!
Excellent service. Second time my husband and I ate there together . Very relaxing !
Scott always takes care of us when we come in. Love coming here and the food was outstanding, as always.
I always choose Carbone’s for a special occasion. You are guaranteed a great experience, fantastic food selections and let’s not forget the deserts!
Excellent food and great service. This restaurant is timeless and a true Hartford survivor.
Food was delicious! Had the table side Cesar salad. Yum
Awesome place as usual
Love the food and the environment here. Service is exceptional...
First of all they did not honor Happy Hour. I had looked it up online and it said Happy Hour was from 4:30 - 6:30. We arrived at 5:25 and when the bartender came to our table at 5:30, he told us Happy Hour was over even though I told him what the website said. We went to our reserved table in the dining room and when asked by the waiter how I was, I mentioned I was a bit upset by the bartender. He said, "We don't have Happy Hour here." The hostess came by and I told her the same thing. Next the waiter came with complementary rice balls and the hostess admitted that I was right about the 6:30 time on the web. They did not handle the situation correctly at all. And the food was mediocre at best. We will not be returning.
Overall not bad. Lots of service issues at first but they found a way to make it right, so credit for that.
Not an overly pricy restaurant and the food measured up, but one would expect a more consistent level of service.
Awesome as always!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We used to come here on dates 24 years ago. We went back and had an amazing dinner. The flaming dinner drinks are amazing!!!!
Loved the ambiance from the get go. Went with two dear friends who were telling old “war stories”, we loved everything. The bolognese and fra diavoli were amazing! The people were super friendly, very attentive and didn’t rush us! Thank you!
Great food as always. I’ve been coming here since I was a kid. I wish the eggplant fries were still on the menu but when we asked for them and they were able to make them for us. Both meals were delicious (the scallops and the surf and turf special). Staff is very attentive and friendly. Ive never had a bad experience at any of the Carbone restaurants but the original is still my favorite.
Always quality food and great service. An institution in Hartford’s south end!
For a busy weekend nite it was quite smooth. (mothers day,graduation, birthdays) We were don in sufficient time to see our show.
A great find on a trip through Hartford. Classic Italian recipes and ambiance. Friendly attentive service. Highly recommended.
Whenever we are visiting relatives in CT we make it a point to dine here. The food is exquisite and authentic Italian and the service is great. It is like dining in a restaurant of the past. They still do tableside Caesar Salad!
Simply the best Italian restaurant in Hartford.
The staff was exceptional, the food second to none. Our experience was a 10
Great dinner at Carbone's; appetizer very good, main entree's excellent and dessert was quite good. Service was excellent!
A lovely evening at an intimate Italian classic. The salmon & vegetables are equally delightful as the eggplant parmigiana (often our favorite). Thank you so very much to everyone!
The service is as good as the food! We requested a special table in the back and were cheerfully accommodated. We even asked for special menu items that were not supposed to be offered that night, and were cheerfully accommodated once again!
This is consistent with my other experiences there. I highly recommend Carbone's for special occasions or just when you want to be treated special.
Oh, and the food is the best, and the presentation outstanding. They have not compromised!
Very sad used to be the place to go in Hartford for the best of everything! Tired 4 customers on a Thursday night.
Bartender Pamela awesome, otherwise the whole thing was boring and below averag
