“Good Italian restaurant in NYC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

La Carbonara is a really nice restaurant in the heart of NYC, it had a small but well stocked bar & the staff were friendly & served us well all night. The wine & food menus were quite impressive & the food was excellent, the only slight let down was that the desert menu was a bit limited, other than that I couldn't fault this place & would defiantly recommend a visit if your in town.

“Very nice local restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Very friendly management and staff, combined with very good food and a nice wine selection added to the atmosphere of this 14th Street find. Recommended for a nice relaxing evening, especially if you come from out of town and walk the High line

“Local Italian....great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

A soon as you walk in you feel like you are in a small European restaurant. It's great. It was recommended by a local, and it was. The service is outstanding and the food is very good. I would defiantly go back.

“Terrific "neighborhood" restaurant!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

My son lives near here, and I have been here several times. Food is delicious, service is graet. Food is reasonably priced , esp. for NYC. Neat little Italian place, with specials and really wonderful freshly made food. I do try to eat here whenever I am visiting. Never dissappointed!!

“Love these accidental great finds!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Husband, son and I stumbled upon this place one evening in the City. What a great find! This place really reminded me of a small restaurant in Europe. Food was great, authentic and plentiful. ...and pretty. Had the seafood special with pasta. Yum!
