I have dined in this restaurant twice in the past few weeks. The warm welcome, excellent food and genuine hospitality is unsurpassed.
We were treated like old friends.
You don’t need to look at the menu, just ask Maurizio what is good and he will prepare it for you.
Locally sourced ingredients freshly cooked to order and served with pride and a flourish is a joy to behold.
Dine here and you won’t be disappointed.

Dined in La Carbonara with family who live here, a wonderful heart warming experience.....the following night we arrived back from Gibraltar tired ,weary and hungry and returned only to be greeted like old friends and shepherded into the best warmest seats in the restaurant, to eat food prepared with passion,love and a true realization of how the finest of simple ingredients can turn into one of the most memorable meals ever .....continued success to La Carnonara,

Do not miss this. We got excellent pasta and dessert. Let the chef advise what to eat, he knows his kitchen and cooks authentic italian food. I was recommended by the chef a pasta dish with spinach, ricotta, tomato and basil.

We have eaten in La Carbonara several times, and it never disappoints. We put ourselves in the able hands of Mauricio. So he suggests what we will eat, and we agree.
We have been there in parties of four, and two.
The food is always fabulous, freshly cooked and delicious. Sometimes we are unsure what will come. But its always good.
Mauricio speaks neither Spanish or English, only Italian. But he and we have no problem.
My favourite is ravioli stuffed with spinach and cheese.
I highly recommend. I suggest you go early. The restaurant is small, and quickly becomes full.
