“Fresh, Aromatic Dishes”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I ate at Carabassa with 5 others in March 2013. Upon being seated, the waitress introduced each dish with great detail and was able to do so in English. She also made excellent recommendations for each course. The ingredients used went together perfectly and tasted as though they were in-season. I will definitely return!

“Not worth the hype”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We visited this restaurant after seeing many favourable reviews on TA. The menu is very limited and it is in Italian (I think). The waitress was very nice and explained fully each of the dishes in English, which begs the question why they don't have an English menu. We shared a potato/cheese starter which was very tasty. I had chicken which was ok but really quite a small main meal. My wife had a pasta dish that was taking al dente to the extreme. The pasta was barely cooked. We were really looking forward to going to this restaurant but it was dissapointing.

“Wonderful Italian cusine”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Small, cozy restaurant easily accomodated a family of 5 plus a stroller for infant. Maria was helpful with recommendations and delivered on them. Food was excellent! Would go back in a heartbeat. Not for dieters, good hearty, wonderful flavors made with Maria’s secrets.

“Ok. Definitely not 5 stars, worth a visit with friendly staff”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Small restaurant where the food was good, service was quick and staff were friendly, but not worthy of 5 stars. A bit more than average, but not 5.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

All outta words actually. So I'll keep this one short: visit this place! Fantastic albondigas napoletana, perfect pasta, superb chianti. All for a way too cheap price. Great & extremely friendly service as well. Looking forward to our next visit!
