We ate here for the first time in several years, wanting to give it another try. Their pot roast/beef stew used to be pretty good. Parking lot had a decent number of cars when we arrived,...so good sign. Interior still had faint smell of needing...More

Good homemade food, a lot of older people eat here. I had a bad experience with a very slow waitress but I'd give it another chance.

Okay, don’t expect a “fine dining” experience at Carbone’s. But so what? Carbone’s always delivers large quantities of tasty Italian-American dishes from its huge menu.

Much older people love eating here! We don’t like it as a family. It’s a simple place and the staff are nice. A lot of regular patrons go here every week.

Every time I go to Carbone’s I keep hoping they get a new chef. The sauce is bland and food okay. People go there to meet friends not for the food. If you don’t mind “okay” then fine. Enjoy your friends tolerate the food.

We usually visit this restaurant when we are in the area and are usually satisfied with our experience. This time was no different. Our server was very pleasant and the food very good. The clam chowder was some of the best I have had.
