You’ve got to be kidding. Sending this after I wrote a letter telling you they went out of business. You never notified me, I found out when I showed up fir my reservation.
You people need to do your jobs. This site is certainly not what it used to be that is why the new snd hot places are on other sites.
The restaurant has been closed for at lest three months. We didn't know that so when we got our confirmations for our reservation we were looking forward to what had always been a great restaurant. When we arrived there were at least 10-12 people milling around the dark and empty restaurant. It appeared that the place had been abandoned. No note and no information.
They’re closed. No longer open!!!! Remove them from Open Table

I brought my out if town cousins last Thursday and they loved the place!
La Carbonara always provides a very pleasurable, relaxing dining experience. The staff are gracious and efficient. The dining area is charming and usually fairly quiet. This is truly a place for scrumptious Italian comfort food. I have dined there several times with different groups of friends and everyone was pleased.
Probably the worst brunch I have ever been to in NYC.
- We paid 25 for bottomless brunch but the champagne basically tasted like vinegar. We changed to screw drivers thinking we would Be able to get that down but everyone was gagging at how terrible the vodka was.
- Food was mediocore at best. My boyfriend was still hungry when leaving.
- Service was painfully terrible. We constantly had to ask to get a refil or for them to even take our order. Basically had to beg for the check and we could not wait to leave.
- extremely loud beyond the point of being even semi enjoyable
- To top it off they added a 20% tip to the bill (makes sense why the waiters didn’t feel a need to work)
Never go here.
Dont get house drinks ! Very cheap and horrible “champagne “
Very nice people, very pretty rest, very average food. Prices are reasonable but nothing we ate stood out and prob will not return
Brunch is always so much fun n and the wait staff is on point!
Super fun place to get brunch with girlfriends on a weekend. Awesome drag show!
This is the place to go for really solid Italian food. The atmosphere is quite buzzing so I would not recommend for an intimate dinner for 2. It's more of a place to with a group and try the many delicious things on the menu. Everything is so fresh and the pastas are all outstanding.like the carbonara. Enjoy!
Great food great service! I’m so happy u found this place
One of my favorite restaurants: great food, pretty dining room with white table cloths and subdued lighting. The service is gracious and friendly.
In the city for Christmas with my two daughters and wanted to find a neighborhood cafe for a cozy holiday dinner. Made last minute reservations on Open Table and crossed my fingers. Santa Claus must have put us on the good list - Wonderful service, tasty food and fair prices. We felt like locals enjoying an exquisite evening. Our table was even beside the Christmas tree. What a great find!
Great local place for Italian food. Service is really attentive, too.
Delicious classic Italian dishes, but I don't recommend fish.
We were warmly greeted by the hostess who was accommodating in assisting us with a table in a quiet corner. Miriam could not have been more delightful. In general, everyone was pleasant and efficient.
The food was delicious, with perfect seasoning in each and every dish. Fabulous olive oil for dipping warm, crusty bread.
Portions were generous, and my grilled calamari appetizer was generous enough to be a main dish.
When we mentioned one of was celebrating a special birthday, the staff came out with a dessert holding a lighted candle and sang birthday wishes to our friend. Lovely.
It's our first time at this restaurant, but we will return, and we'll tell our friends about our find!!
Staff was amazing and attentive and the food Devine!!! One of my fav spots in the city
My friend and I had lunch here and it was incredible! Arlinda , our Waiteress , was warm, friendly and made wonderful suggestions for us to try. Great food and great place!!
The food was good, not amazing. The octopus was slightly over cooked. The pasta was well cooked. The desserts were not made there and previously frozen.
The biggest problem is that they did not take Open Table gift cards even though they claim to on tha site. This would have been fine except the maitre d’ came to the table with his phone and the person from open table on the line. It was quite awkward. I spoke with open table who claimed that the restaurant has taken them in the past. Open table was gracious and apologetic and gave me credit plus. Th restaurant lied to me not to take the gift card, and the whole experience of having to explain to the maitre d’ that they have taken these in the past was annoying. It ruined the entire meal.
Very convenient to where we were staying, but would be worth going across town for. The gnocchi were about as close to perfect as possible, tender and tasty. The sauce was clean and bright. The salad was served in a crispy cheese bowl and was phenomenal and perfectly dressed. The only flaw was the eggplant was a bit tough. Otherwise, a beautiful meal. Go. Eat. Enjoy.
What a great service, they were very considerate, helpful and professional. Even asked if music was too loud since me and bf picked a table in the corner that was near the speakers.
The food was delicious, they were happy to adjust order too which is an extra plus.
Will definitely come back, very happy to find a place like this next to my home)
My wife & I attended an event in the area and looked ahead for a place to have dinner. La Carbonara was close by so we looked a table after reading so many top-notch reviews. We were still wary because we have experienced places with good reviews that were disappointing.
Well - we were so happy we found La Carbonara - cozy warm atmosphere, old world feeling, linen tablecloths and napkins. Our server was very warm and patient even though most tables were filled.
The food - I ordered the Lasagna Tradizionale and my wife ordered the Minestrone soup. I am Italian - grew up in an Italian household - I have had many many versions of Lasagna - including my own. The Lasagna at La Carbonara is beyond description. It has a meat sauce - I mean - a meat sauce - small meatballs - chunks of other meat - the noodles seem homemade - not like the store bought Ronzoni or even the ones that cook in the sauce. - and the sauce--------Fagedaboudit!
Even though the portion was just right for me (and I'm a pretty big eater) I was wishing I had more - It was too good to come to an end - so I toyed with the idea to maybe asking for a side of meat balls, but I did not and glad because the desert was also terrific - I had the Grandmother's cake - Lemony filling over a shortbread crust topped with pine nuts and powdered sugar.
Oh - my wife thoroughly enjoyed the Minestrone - she said it heart and substance -
I had to help her finish her slice of Grandmother's cake. On the way home we were thinking of what other events we can attend in the same area - but - hey - we'll take a taxi no matter where we go. This is a really top notch authentic Italian restaurant. And we are really food people.
This may not be the most attractive restaurant in town; however, the food is really, really good. Pasta is fresh and very well-prepared. The chicken was moist and flavorful.
Birthday Celebration for Friend
Excellent food, widely varied menu including fabulous homemade pastas and great meat and fish entrees. Reasonable prices. Terrific, attentive service, beautiful room with tables nicely spaced. So why only four stars and not five? Well, the small bar at the front of the restaurant was populated by a few very loud people whose laughter and voices reverberated throughout the restaurant, which seemed to make an attempt to drown them out by turning up the volume of the music. The decor seems designed for quiet conversation, but that was impossible at the time I was there. I'm sure this was not typical and I'll definitely return -- I really like this restaurant -- but they need either to separate the bar from the dining room or cut barflies off when they've clearly had too much!
We had great time!
I was so impressed by quality of the food!
Definitely going back
Great place, very friendly atmosphere. Food was very tasty, great portions. To the gentleman who was walking around was very friendly ! prosciutto off the bone. It was incredible!
Overall, La Carbonara is consistent with quality of food and level of service with both being very good. I will say that I tried to use Opentable dining points and La Carbonara rejected the gift card even though it clearly stated the restarurant's name and address on it. Opentable reimbursed the points to me. It was embarrassing to say the least as I was treating friends to a dinner. Anyway, I would recommend La Carbonara for a casual, italian dinner.
There were fourteen of us, not quite an impromptu gathering, immediately welcomed and settled. And then the foods began to arrive, and each one was wonderful. Paired with the wine we chose, it just kept getting better and better. What was particularly special for us all was the attentive service, and the welcoming humor with which it was done. As for the desserts ... a stunning selection, nothing cloying, each terrific. And then, as if we hadn't had enough, we were served their signature cheese cake. Truly special and delicious and worth a bunch of !!!!!
Ask for Albano new Cheff outstanding very fresh food I love his food 👏
It’s a great brunch. I’ve been before and always had a good time. The food is delicious. This particular day was not their best. The food took a long time and mine was cold. The other meal was good. I’d still go back! It’s a great deal and good food.
i hope that this restaurant can improve its service. our food was not bad at all, but the service was remarkably poor. staff seemed disorganized and were slow to take orders. they were not always knowledgeable about the menu. every course was verrrrrry slow to arrive. the room seemed noisy and confused as customers looked around for their servers.
It's a comfortable restaurant with attentive staff and the prices are very reasonable!
Somewhat disorganized service when it got busy, food is adequate as expected
Food was good, but service was slow. Waiter forgot a side dish we ordered.
I've eaten here a few times and I'm never disappointed. The food is really good, the prices are reasonable and the service is attentive. I will definitely return.
