Our dinner was amazing! We ordered 2 salads, an appetizer, a soup, 4 entrees, and 3 desserts. Every bite was wonderful, and the service was impeccable.

Visited here on a Sunday night. Got in early around 5:30 and place was pretty empty. By 6:30pm the place was full. They have selected pasta dishes for $10 on Sunday night and some bottles of wine are half price. We enjoyed a beet salad and the antipasta plate, both were very good. Entrees were raviolli and a dish made... More

If your looking for good Italian with an Italian atmosphere look no further. The bread that is brought out first is so good you have to force yourself not to ask for more. My favorite dish is the TORCHIETTE & SHRIMP! For $19 this is well worth it. I go here because I crave this meal. The salads are also... More

Quality food with excellent service is what we look for in a good restaurant. We absolutely found it at Carbonara Tratoria. Janet, our server, went above and beyond to make our first visit exceptional. The dining room was filled with a large-group Christmas party and we had been seated close by. A quieter table was soon to be available and... More

What a great find for Italian Food in Atlanta. This restaurant is almost hidden in a Dunwoody Shopping Center but it is well worth looking for! The service was excellent and the food was even better. There was 5 of us and we all agreed that this was the tastiest Italian food we had had in Atlanta! One person had... More

After one visit, Carbonara Trattoria moves to the top of my list of Italian restaurants in north Atlanta. The ambiance is warm and comfortable, and the owner attentive and gracious. Those things are nice extras, but matter not a whit if the food is substandard or the prices pompously high. NEITHER IS TRUE HERE! The menu offers a wide range... More

The hostess met with us with a smile and immediately led us to our table (we had no reservation). Our server met with us just a few minutes after seating. By the way, he had an incredible speaking voice - should be on radio or more. We enjoyed the mussels, pasta marinara, pasta tagliatelle. The pasta was beautifully cooked and... More

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
