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.

A wonderful family run restaurant. We look forward to coming here a few times every week and enjoying the Italian specialties and especially the antipasto and pizza. We held our wedding reception here and it was perfect.

Carbone's has been a lomg time favorite for Friday night pizza and antipasto salad. The second generation, family owned restaurant is a popular spot. Have never had a bad meal.

Carbone's restaurant has been a family owned restaurant since 1933. It has a great friendly atmosphere and is a favorite of the locals. Many Italian dishes are served along with traditional American favorites. There is a separate "specials" menu also. I took a friend of mine to this restaurant recently; I ordered pizza and she ordered chicken pot pie. Both... More

The food was okay but this place has not changed in many, many years. They give you lots of food, but needs to be updated.

We have been to Carbone's a few times over the last few months usually for Friday evening dinner. The accommodations are pleasant. The prices about average. I found the salmon to be "fishy" and a bit oily, despite asking for it to be cook very well done. The wait staff seems a bit "stiff" and not overly friendly. It was... More

My parents have brought me here since the 80's and now I bring my kids. This is old school Italian. Service is great and the food is the same as back when I was a kid. The consistency is amazing!
