I have been going to Carbones for over 50 years and it is still going strong. I do not get to Hartford as much but when I do Carbones is always a good place to get a good meal with great service.

One of the best Italian restaurants in the Hartford CT area. Cozy, well trained staff & some of the best Itlian food you will have outside of Italy. Try the bocci balls for dessert!! They are the best!!

Old school Italian at it's finest. The staff is great. Very friendly. Mary-Beth always remembers your name. And Vinnie is an excellent chef. The restaurant is very old school elegant and has such a nice ambiance. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu....More
