I had many memorable lunches and dinners at Carbone’s when I first started my career in Hartford over 40 years ago. I took the opportunity of the Roman Dinner to rekindle my memories. The multi-course dinner with wine was disappointing. Service was so rushed that...More

Every one of the seven courses were delicious. Wine was paired wonderfully with the entree. Scott, our waiter made it even more special by explaining each course and how the wine complimented it. Definately would recommend this wonderful feast.
