I have visited here on many occasions the latest being two days ago. This is my favourite Italian restaurant in Swindon. Delicious food, reasonable prices, authentic Italian feel and attentive waiting staff all go toward this 5 star rating. Vast and varied menu choices of pasta, meat, fish, specials and vegetarian dishes. Also over 15 pizzas to decide from. I... More

Came here for my birthday meal on 12th April. Had heard good things and couldn't wait to try it out. At first, the waiter was cheery and helpful enough. He recommended certain wines and told us their prices. He then told us about the 3 specials (but did not inform us of the prices). There seemed to be a lot... More

I've been here several times over the past two years and the food is always really good-a nice selection of tasty starters and mains. However-the "specials" are always the same- the only thing that has changed is the price! Can we have more variety please? As for the veg? boring old boiled carrots and green beans (yuk). Can't the chef... More

I've been going to La Carbonara for years now and it's my favourite Italian restaurant in Swindon. Highly recommend the Mozzarella in bread crumbs and the lasagne. Thanks

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The service was pleasant, and the food and drinks tasty. The rating is limited as I have had better pizzas. However, the menu is like a book, and I look forward to returning and sampling more courses and some pasta next time! Everything delivered from the kitchen looked delicious. I would like to return!

Family of 7 dining in on a Sunday lunch time, only one other table being served. All food received very, very quickly. Starters all very tasty. Carbonara main could be much better for a restaurant named after the dish. Parmasan and pepper added, would have been lovely if portions were larger. My dad had this as a starter and the... More

Good Italian food and wines served up in a most relaxing and enjoyable ambiance. You have an excellent wide choice of starters, main courses, specials and sweets. Prices are very reasonable with attentive, helpful and friendly service. My Farfalla Principessa (chicken, mushrooms, asparagus and creamy sauce) was just delicious and washed down with a cold chardonnay. Locals will know this... More
