The food was great and authentic Italian and the prices are more than decent, especially for that area of the city. I liked the cozy feeling of the restaurant plus the grappa they gave as on the house at the end of our dinner.

Old fashioned traditional food that tasted home made. Terrific service and atmosphere. Waiter's suggestion for matching wine spot on. Highly recommended

Cozy places with good food and service aren't always that easy to find in tourist heaven, but Carbone's passed the test.

Small, intimate place. Run by real Italians, which shows up in the food. The place isn't particularly flashy - I feel as if many people probably pass it by, but inside past the bar it's nice and cozy with brick walls and little Italian signs here and there. Cute place and the prices are fair and the food is really good. Of note is the brick oven pizza -The service is very friendly and generally pretty snappy.The Backyard is now open. Buon Appetito !
