“Best in Habana”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We dined this evening in La Carboncita and we were very impressed with the service and the superb food. This is true Italian without fail. The owner and staff go out of their way to make sure you have the best dining experience. We will go back again tomorrow and look forward to it. This is quite possibly the best restaurant in Habana.

“Great food, beautiful peaceful setting”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Was told this is were Italians come to eat in Havana. The food was amazing. There were 7 of us, we each ordered different items and EVERYONE enjoyed their food. The staff was attentive, the house was beautiful. I felt as if I was dining at a friends house. Highly recommend.

“Lovely surprise”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

We asked our Casa hostess in Miramar if she knew of a place nearby where we could get pizza.Two blocks away,as directed, we found La Carboncita and made a reservation for that evening.What a lovely surprise.Many people were seated both inside and out.The place had an Italian feel to it - lots of big wine glasses and red wine.The pasta was excellent and very reasonably priced.Everybody seemed to be having a good time.The next day we went back at noon because we had a bus to catch to Vinales at two.We had a great pizza and had plenty of time to get our taxi to the bus station.

“Lovely Evening”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

I went to this restaurant with three people from my tour group. Luckily we were able to get a reservation on such a busy night (Valentine's Day). We had a nice spot on the front porch/patio and could see the other patrons coming and going. There seemed to be a good mix of people (young, old, local, foreign). The food was surprising to me. I wasn't expecting it to be so good. If this restaurant was in my neighborhood back home I would go there regularly for the pizza alone-great crust, good flavor. Everyone in my party had a different pasta dish and everyone cleaned their plate. Our waitress, Mairelys, was really nice and helpful.

Simply, one of the best italian restaurants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ANYWHERE.
Great food and ambiance. Service was fantastic. Homemade fettuccini was very good and the pizza is one of the best. Will be going there every time I am in Havana.
Thanks for a great time.
