i truly enjoyed my dinner at carbone restaurant the service was outstanding the food was delicious and the atmosphere reminded me of a romantic restaurant in the streets of rome. the appetizers were so greatly put together the antipasto plate was truly our delight . the black linguini with sea food made my night. and the home made tiramisu finished our dinner perfectly. the owner was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. he even ended our night with a round of limoncello. i highly recommend this restaurant for a true authentic italian dinner in nyc

This authentic Italian place is a secret in the heart of New York. Great food for a small price! Every day different specials makes this restaurant to a place to enjoy! The best home made Tiramisu in town.

Not only was the food exceptional at this restaurant but the service was phenomenal. While visiting NYC we wanted to go out to a nice place that would serve pizza and I found Carbone on yelp. My company kept asking - where the hell are you taking us?! But sure enough they regretted giving me any crap because we had such an amazing dinner here. Sure there are many options in NYC, but if your looking for some authentic Italian food, with good atmosphere and good people, without any pretentiousness - Carbone's in the place to be. We made such good friends with everyone there they even gave us free limoncello!The restaurant have a nice backyard!

We went to Carbone's on a Tuesday night, as we couldn't get in last Friday when it was packed. It was just about full, but still the wait staff and owner Alessandro were very friendly and chatty. The menu looked good, extensive, and with Italian (not Italian-American dishes). We ordered daily specials, which were all delicious and freshly made. The decor is simple, but cozy.
