I was so looking forward to trying Carbone...i work one block away and it looks so inviting. The back garden was delightful, the people very warm. My food was unappetizing. I ate two bites and that was it. The waitress never asked why I didn't eat any of my dinner, and I was not in the mood to offer. But I never should have been charged for the food. It was completely subpar, even burned. My companion told me that her meal was excellent and it looked it - as did all the dishes served around us. So I'll give it a try again. My mistake was not asking more about the dish and then not asking for it to be replaced, which I have a feeling the restaurant would have been happy to do. They deserve another try, but i'll be wary of what I order, for sure.

I read the reviews and saw the great ratings, but there must have been a dramatic change in ownership and employees. Even with the place empty the service was non existent, the food was overpriced for what it was.

Having been to Italy several times, this is the closest I've come when comparing the food and overall atmosphere. Trying to find someplace great to eat near MSG isn't the easiest and this place excellent. The pizza was just as it would be in Rome and the staff was extremely attentive. We had so much fun we almost forgot about the concert!

I never write reviews but I had to add one because we had such a fun meal here. We were a party of 8 with tickets to a show at Madison Square Garden and wanted somewhere casual nearby. The outdoor patio was charming and the food was really tasty and reasonable. The owner is eager to please and did a great job of recommending wine and dishes. The service was poor so if you go, keep in mind that it is slow and not entirely competent. However, if you're not in a rush and aren't uptight about needing to remind the waiter a few times, you'll love it. Pizza was awesome, pastas, chicken, steak and salad were very good too. It looks like a slightly upscale pizza place inside so the backyard is the way to go.

Quite simply some of the best Pizza and Italian food you can eat outside Italy (and I've lived in Italy). Have not been disappointed by a single thing on the menu. Pizza is so thin and flavorful it has to be tried. Pesto Gnocci and Pasta primavera are easily the best I've had in the U.S. Chef Andrea is as gregarious as he is talented, although the rest of the wait staff requires some patience. Outdoor seating is perfect for the summer time. I'm scared to recommend this place as it's my dirty little secret right now, but I figure it deserves to be recognized.
