This restaurant was amazing! The atmosphere was great, the staff was wonderful and the food was finger licking good. From the appetizers, to the pizza, focaccia to the pasta dishes. It was all very good and the pricing was very affordable. We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Havana.

The service and the atmosphere at this restaurant was very good. My mother and I went there for lunch and had pesto pasta, which was good. My favorite dish was the dessert - guava ice cream, that came in an actual guava shell. Yum!

This was our only disappointing meal at a higher-rated restaurant in Havana. The service was very, very nice, but the quality of the food lacked much to be desired. The pizza was tasteless, the lasagna a nondescript blob and the tagliatelle ragu a bland salty affair. Go elsewhere.

We arrived at it after the Fidel Castro dead and being in mourning the alcoholic drinks does not exist. We ordered some pizza, lasagna, cannelloni and Caprese salad. Than some ice cream and some espresso, cappuccino and natural juice drinks. The entire food was tasty and perfect, the staff was very friendly and everything was just OK. I recommend it... More

Excellent Food, Ambiance, and Service. Our waiter (Norge) was adorable and very attentive - only suggestion: missing any kind of Cuban music. Didn't realize that until every restaurant we went to after that (this was our first night in Havana) had it.

La Carboncita was my favorite Paladar in Havanan. It is an Italian restaurant and after 4 days of similar types of food it was fun to have some pasta. I had the Bolognese and it was just what I wanted. My uncle had a calzone and it was excellent. Warning, it was huge. The restaurant is in a more affluent... More

The food quality has deteriorated in this restaurante the last couple of months, but it is still a decent Italian with good pizza. Outdoor seating is beautiful, but a bit hot in summer. Worth it for an average day meal.
