This is not a fancy fine dining so don't expect that. However, compared to thousands of other mid-range restaurants, this one is a gem. For $15.95 you get a two course dinner. The food was well prepared, portions were good. Decor is pleasant, white linens,...More

The service was great especially with our waiter John, a young man with such attentive disposition towards my husband and I. The food was very good and more importantly the staff was so accommodating. The maître d' was perfect. Thumbs up for the restaurant!

We went to La Carbonara thinking they'd have good Italian food and boy was it a waste of time and money. The fried calamari was good and that's the only reason why I'm giving it two stars. The entrees were terrible. We had Mushroom Risotto...More

One of my favorite Italian restaurant in NYC. Food is out of this world and the sangrias are amazing. I recommended to anyone.

We were a bit hesitant to bring in two young girls (6 and 9) for dinner but they were treated like princesses and loved every bit of the attention - it was a real "night out" for them. And there were sufficient choices for them....More

Perhaps it's because it was Sunday night, but La Carbonara was definitely out of its grove last night. Disorganized service and middling food were a surprise as, for years, La Carbonara could be relied upon for a decent meal at a decent price. Since my...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
