What has happened to the wonderful spaghetti carbonara??? We were among the first to frequent this neighborhood restaurant when it was first opened, and we were sold on this item. We have continued to order it on the numerous times we dine here. Several months ago we brought family members and insisted they have the carbonara. They like us were... More

This is a nice neighborhood restaurant tucked away in the interior of Dunwoody Village. There was plenty of parking, the interior was warm and inviting, and the service was prompt and efficient. So why the three star rating. The food. For prices like these -- pastas in the high $teens, other entrees in the $20s -- you expect really good... More

Great atmosphere and great food. Intimate upscale dining with a friendly family touch. Great pastas, risotto, veal, seafood. Best to make reservation on weekends

We dined the evening after Thanksgiving. The server we had was over loaded with a big table and had a hard time servicing table of 2. Their was another server who appeared to be better, but our server would not let her serve us! My tortolloni dish would have been good if it were cooked properly.It was very cold.My wife's... More

Things you may find helpful: 1) This was not easy to find and we ended up calling for clues. It would have been easier to turn onto Dunwoody Village Parkway. The restaurant is behind the post office and next to Dunwoody Prep. 2) Price expectations. Dinner for two without wine, without drinks, and without dessert, was $74 with tip. Most... More

We had a lovely dinner at Carbonara Trattoria. We got there around 6:30 the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. The place filled up rather quickly and it is not the largest of restaurants. However, the owner made it a point to stop at each table and he greeted my father, who had been there before, by name and with a... More

I live down the street and had never ventured to this Italian restaurant that has been open for almost three years. The decor was welcoming and the service was informative and prompt.We chose the price fixe menu of app, entree and desert. We really liked our dinner. The mussels were seasoned very nice, full of garlic. The antipasto plate was... More

Had dinner with a group of friends on a Friday night. First, it was almost impossible to find since we are not familiar with the area, even with GPS. It is a good thing we were not in a hurry since the service was glacial. We practically had to tackle the server to get service. The food, when it finally... More

Went here w/friends & found it wanting in many areas...service was spotty and slow, food very mediocre & quite expensive for what it was...maybe Dunwoody restaurant-goers just don't like their food to have flavor, since our dishes were flat & dull...
