We came to this restaurant for my daughter's 8th bday and we were a big party of 15 people. It was our first time since my daughter love pasta and what a love about the place is that's really cozy and EXCELLENT service. All our guest said that they're definitely going back,since the food was great and no wait.

Enjoyed dinner with the family on August 25th. Started with bruschetta and calamari fritti. The bread was fresh and crusty, with a healthy topping of tomatoes and a nice thin slice of cheese. The calamari was fried in a very light, tasty breading. Served with thin slices of fried jalapeños. Delicious, but I would have liked larger pieces (say, quarters)... More

Like fine dining hidden in Dunwoody. Like a local neighborhood establishment. Food very good to excellent, Service was impeccable with our waiter anticipating every need without a hitch. Excellent menu. Pricy for me but not over priced at all.

Although a little hard to find, hidden in a mall in Dunwoody, this friendly, home style Italian restaurant has excellent service, a unique friendly manager, and careful attention to detail in the ambiance and on the table. The beet salad, chicken fra diavolo, and grilled fish with lemon risotto were excellent. The wine list is relatively limited and reasonably priced... More

I was ready to write off this restaurant but then the food arrived. I think the B team was on tonight as service was not all that great. The food though was absolutely fantastic. I had one of the best spaghetti bolognese ever. All my dining companions raved about there food. Most definitely will return.

My wife and I were in Atlanta for a birthday weekend and looked on Open Table for a great Italian restaurant and Carbonara popped up. We called for reservations and spoke with Marleigh who was extremely nice, she's the hostess. We later found out that Carbonara has been voted the number 10th best Italian restaurant in Atlanta by Open Table.After... More

Quaint little spot in a strip mall... Not what I expected. My expectations were not high as we approached. But we were pleasantly surprised. The food was amazing! The staff was very nice and provided great service. The fried green tomatoes were absolutely delicious. Every meal we had was great. Would go again and have already recommended to others!

Friday night. 7:00. Carbonara Trattoria is busy and getting busier. But their system is down. No software to feed orders to the kitchen and the bar. No communication with credit card companies. And the air conditioning on a still 90 degree evening is having trouble keeping up. So paper and pencil in hand, we began our adventure. The good news... More
