The adults in the family had a very good, relaxed, upscale dinner around Christmas time. I used to go to Carbones as a child, and was impressed with how good it still is at this point. We enjoyed the Carpaccio appetizer, the osso bucco special,...More

We eat at the bar when there are only two of us. The bar service is wonderful, the bartenders are friendly, funny and fast. What more do you need? Of course, the food at Carbone's is better than very, very good. This is a restaurant...More

I have been going to Carbones for over 50 years and it is still going strong. I do not get to Hartford as much but when I do Carbones is always a good place to get a good meal with great service.

One of the best Italian restaurants in the Hartford CT area. Cozy, well trained staff & some of the best Itlian food you will have outside of Italy. Try the bocci balls for dessert!! They are the best!!

I go here once every few years as a special treat. Primarily known ( to me anyways ) for Italian dishes. Today I had the Veal Saltimbocca and my wife the Veal Parmigiana. Perfectly done. Could not have been any better and we're Italian !
