Carbone's Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Looking for authentic Italian cuisine? Head to Carbone's, the family-owned restaurant that’s been cooking Italian for 70-plus years. Tableside presentation is the house specialty, and the pastas and sauce are homemade. Signature dishes include veal cuscinetto, stuffed with prosciutto and sharp cheese; chicken lacava with sausage and hot and sweet peppers; and Atlantic Coast cod saltimbocca, a sautéed prosciutto-wrapped filet. Menu classics range from veal, chicken and eggplant Parmigiana to gnocchi Alfredo and ravioli in pomodoro sauce. End the meal with Italian favorites including Carbone’s version of bread pudding, chocolate torte and chocolate-covered ice cream tartufo. Wines from Italy rule on the extensive wine list.

Authentic Northern Italian!

We went to Carbone's last weekend and everything about our experience was wonderful. We dined with friends and sat in a cozy, circular booth - the service was top notch and the food to die for. I would especially recommend the Lobster risotto! My friend ordered me a flaming dessert that at first I wasn't too sure of, but it was spectacular. I loved it! I would recommend this place for anyone celebrating a special occasion - or if you're like me and don't feel like cooking!
