We have been going here for years. It is not a 5 star restaurant but provides very good food for a good price. Very good Italian food, we like their veal parm. I will admit that occasionally it is not the most tender, but tonight...More

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.

Meal, service and atmosphere were excellent. Would recommend carbones to others for delicious food and friendly service. On specials just be sure to note extra charge since wait staff did not tell us.

This restaurant has been in business for decades. It is a 'no frills ' Italian restaurant with good food at very reasonable prices. Service is good and the staff is friendly. You won't find anything fancy but it is worth a try.

Food is ok and kind of bland. A lot of old people like this restaurant. Price is right for them. The restaurant look like it's a throw back to the 70's.
