Classy Italian restaurant with excellent service and awesome food. Eggplant parmigiana without breading was sliced paper thin and tasted delicious!! Table side salads and desserts are outstanding. Great for anniversaries birthdays or dates. More expensive but the food and service are worth it. Nice lot to park and security guard at the door.

The food was ok, but felt the quantity serverd was a little anemic for the price paid. Example: for the main cource, I ordered the Sirloin Steak and 2 sides for $47. The steak was narrow cut 8x3x1 inches thick, one handful of brussel sprouts, and same for the fingerling potatoes. A little disappointing to say the least

Love going to Carbone's. The food is outstanding, the service excellent and the ambience perfect. We plan to continue to frequent Carbone's even though it is a forty minute drive. Absolutely worth every meal and moment spent at Carbone's. Thank you for continuing to be a top restaurant in the Hartford area.

Sammy was an excellent waiter. We felt valued and well taken care of. All of our food was excellent. Arancini, butternut soup, chicken piccata, salmon, torta dessert - all great. Service was very fast, even on a busy Saturday evening. In and out in one hour. Just wish we lived closer.

We've always had excellent meals here and the service is impeccable. Ran into a little snag waiting quite awhile for our apps to come out but as usual, Carbones is the utmost professional place and they came over with lots of apologies and free glasses of wine for us which was very nice to do. Thank you for that!

Service was poor. Not sure if they were understaffed as our waitress was always busy someplace else. Never asked how our meal was until we more then half done and had to ask for more water. Did not ask if we wanted dessert and coffee. Won't go back.

Things have changed at Carbone’s. The food is not as good and the service has dropped in quality. This was my favorite restaurant but I think I need a break for a while. The last two visits were disappointing.

We hadn't been to Carbone's in many years, so this was like a reunion for us. We enjoyed our dinner at Carbone's, ever aspect was exceptional from the food, to the service, to the interior that has been spectacularly redecorated. We will definitely be back to sample the many menu options. Thank you.

My reservation asked for a quiet area. The conversation at adjoining table so noisy I couldn't converse with my partner. Service was slow and waiter not as attentive as he should have been in a decent restaurant. The wrong desert was delivered to table. I had ordered a gelato, but the flavor reported by the water turned out not to be available. We waited so long for a simple gelato that we finally had to give up and leave without it. Food not bad, but not really good either. Presentation was unappealing. There was nothing positive I can say about the restaurant except for the availability of on site parking. The experience was unacceptable even had the prices been very low. Carbone's in Bloomfield far better.

Food was delicious from the warm freshly baked bread, capris salad with tomatoes that tasted like they were right of the vine, to my pasta dish which was packed with big chunks of lobster. My husbands salmon was cooked perfectly! Wait staff was very knowledgeable about the menu and attentive. My only complaint was the hostess which is really too bad as she is the 1st person you see and she sets the tone. She was not welcoming, did not smile once, looked right through me and attempted to greet the couple behind me, then asked me to wait and immediately sat 3 groups that were behind me - one did not have a reservation (we did). Please do not underestimate the importance of making folks feel welcome when they come to your restaurant!
