Went here with our good friends and had a wonderful meal. The service was a bit slow at first, but then they got on task. The specials were excellent along with the regular menu. We all raved about our dishes. The wines are listed on a blackboard and were a very good value. Overall it was a delicious experience.

Great food, incredible value, friendly waitstaff . Haven't had a disappointing meal yet. Go, but don't tell too many people.

What a great idea, pastas @ $9, entrees under $15, no wine list-all their wines are listed on chalk boards, mostly@ $20. I think this is a blueprint for sucess. By the way the food is top. Love it!!

Whoever had the bright idea to open La Carbonara as a place for "Italian Comfort Food" at affordable prices should be congratulated. Their tasty Italian dishes would be welcome at any price, but the low prices (pastas under $10, entrees under $15, wines starting at $19) make it a place you can eat often without breaking the budget. And the service is very attentive too. No wonder they're busy every night. Those who remember the former restaurant here, Primitivo, will be pleasantly surprised to discover that La Carbonara has much better food at lower prices. Bravo!

This is the real deal, character, no pretense and great value. I suspect much success.

Had a terrific dinner here...Flavorful Carbonara pasta and Orata with a potato crust. Bottle of Gavi for $22. Very attentive service. Go before people are standing in long lines outside this modest spot.

Basically Primativo took away the table cloths, painted the place, hung chalk boards and changed tables. Then they changed the name. They now call it Italian comfort food. I would not. To me it is still pretty "gourmetish". Italian comfort food to me is meatballs and spaghetti, Veal and Chicken Alla Parmigiana. They do not have that on their menu, though menu pages does have that listed for them). They have rabbit, steak, lamb, etc. Hardly “pub food” as our waitress called it. To me Italian comfort food would have bread and butter on the table, not a waiter walking around handing a piece or two out at a time. Then you need to find him for more bread. The food however was very good. The service was too. However, even with the lights dim the noise level is incredible. You can’t hear the waiter, waitress or the person next to or across from you. Not a place to go where you want to have a leisurely dinner and conversation.
