Have not been here for years but recently visited for dinner. Service was fair and professionalism was lacking. It was not like it use to be!
We were a party of six and went for the 2013 Taste of Hartford. The special three course menu was offered at a fixed price of $20.13 (plus tax and tip) All of us chose from that menu. Among the entrees we chose were veal piccata, chicken parmegiana, and spaghetti Bolognese. A choice of two salads was offered as starter... More
I have been to Carbones many times and am always pleased. If you take advantage during restaurant week you are really in for a treat. The food is superb and the atmosphere is old fashion dining elegance. The service is great. Everyone makes you feel as though you are celebrating a special occasion.
we had the $20.13 taste of Hartford. delicious! I had the veal piccata. so tender and flavorful. good portion size. served with mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. it came with a tossed green salad - vegetables also nice and fresh. it was topped of with dessert - sponge cake with fresh berries. everything very good and great for the...

I am probably more critical than most when it comes to Italian food, but OVERALL Carbone 's is a very nice place to chill at the bar, and down a few appetizers celebrate a special occasion or just enjoy a leisurely Romantic dinner. The service is above average, but sometimes drags when busy. When you are a regular at the... More
Carbone's offers a great menu! The service is great. I enjoy everything about this restaurant! I've been 1/2 dozen times and can't wait to go back. My fav is their table side Caesar salad. Hubby's fav is their calamari app. For a main dish I usually go for a special...because they are special! ;)
The best fried calamari ever. But after that many ups and downs. I had a breaded pork chop that was enough to feed 3 people, but it was bland. Their desert cannoli is also an outstanding.
Our last visit was as the many that preceded it! The offerings are simple and well prepared, the reason for the 4 stars is the lack of creativity from the kitchen( and there is no way to give three and a half stars) which I expect from a restaurant in this price bracket! The service has always been consistently excellent... More
Given the location, there are other restaurants that are far superior to Carbone's. The food was fair, nothing to rave about. The service was slow with large gaps between appetizers, main course and dessert. The servers were not as attentive as one would expect given their self-billing as a top restaurant. The prices were not in line with the quality... More
We went to Carbone's for my birthday because we had read such good reviews. The reviews were right on the mark. First of all the ambiance of the restaurant was wonderful--we felt like we were some place on vacation, and the servers took such great care of us. We were lacking for nothing! The food was exceptional! I had the... More
