Carbonara Trattoria is a great place. It is unique in that the owner comes and chats with you. The food is fantastic! I had to Bucatini and it was fabulous. The bread is always delicious. We celebrated my friends's birthday and had a wonderful time. I will be back!

We enjoyed the ambiance and the food at Carbonara. Staff is cordial and helpful. They have a great selection of wines; we especially liked the Montepulciano. The beet salad is excellent. We can highly recommend the black pepper mushroom ravioli. We were full, so we did not order dessert. We will make sure to save room next time because they... More

While most Buckhead restaurants are all about the "whistles and bells", this hidden gem in Dunwoody is focusing on the food experience and the craftsmanship of offering you a fantastic meal. Hats of to the (very welcoming) owner and chef.

I had an opportunity to visit this restaurant with a Meetup group. The owner was very welcoming. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are in Italy. The food was fantastic and the service was awesome. I had a great experience at Carbonara Trattoria. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Not only was a welcomed by the owner when I arrived but the Chef came out after our meal to ask how everything was. I admit I love their pasta carbonara which is quite difficult to find a good version of in this city but I also love their veal. It is if interst to me that very few Italian... More

Enjoyed dinner with the family on August 25th. Started with bruschetta and calamari fritti. The bread was fresh and crusty, with a healthy topping of tomatoes and a nice thin slice of cheese. The calamari was fried in a very light, tasty breading. Served with thin slices of fried jalapeños. Delicious, but I would have liked larger pieces (say, quarters)... More

Like fine dining hidden in Dunwoody. Like a local neighborhood establishment. Food very good to excellent, Service was impeccable with our waiter anticipating every need without a hitch. Excellent menu. Pricy for me but not over priced at all.

Although a little hard to find, hidden in a mall in Dunwoody, this friendly, home style Italian restaurant has excellent service, a unique friendly manager, and careful attention to detail in the ambiance and on the table. The beet salad, chicken fra diavolo, and grilled fish with lemon risotto were excellent. The wine list is relatively limited and reasonably priced... More
