“Fine Italian in a casual setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Carbone's opening in Bloomfield has brought a wonderful Italian restaurant into the suburbs of Hartford. It traces it's lineage to the famous Carbone's in Hartford, and brings the same fantastic food to a nicely decorated and easy to access location with plenty of free and secure parking and is conveniently located within walking distance to the Bloomfield Cinemas. The specialty cocktails are a must try, especially the Bourbon Boxcar, and the wine list is extensive, but has very reasonably priced "Wines by the Glass" selections. The food, as would be expected of Carbon'es tradition, is exceptional and reasonably priced. I would especially recommend the simply prepared Atlantic Salmon in addition to the Veal Saltimbooca. A perfect stop anytime, and with the beautiful bar, a great choice for cocktails and some really good food.

“A definite go-to place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We've been for date night and sat at the bistro tables around the bar as well as girl's lunch and family of 6 (with kids). Never a bad meal. Very attentive staff and owner who routinely makes the rounds greeting guests. Staff is knowledgeable about the menu and specials and willing to make a recommendation when asked. Fair prices and large portions. Make a reservation though. Always busy, for good reason.

“Good food and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We enjoyed a good meal at carbone's kitchen. The menu is interesting and the service was friendly and good. We split two salads for three. The wedge and pear salads were very good. Entrees took another 50 minutes to come out and the restaurant not that crowded on sunday. Portions were large . We had scallops, crazy carbonara , and tenderloin which were all very good. Prices are moderate and dinner was 100 before tip. We would try again and hope not too busy. Photos placed .

“Anothe Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Stopped again at Carbone's Kitchen for dinner last Monday night. As usual the meal and service were outstanding. This of course is to be expected as Carbone's in Hartford is the parent of the Bloomfield resturant. The portions for the veal parm and a shrimp dish were large and provided another meal at home a couple of nights later.
