Carbone’s Prime, an “Italian Steakhouse”, is as energetic as it is casual. Our restaurant is for all generations. The menu is well conceived and sleek within a contemporary and comfortable surrounding; we have three spacious dining areas to suit any occasion, an open kitchen with a seat at our crudo bar and a lively bar area with televisions with plenty of room for all the friends and family.

Our meals were delicious and prepared with care. Our waitperson was exceptional. It’s expensive but we’ll certainly return.

Very nice restaurant with good ambience, but I keep waiting for the food and service to match but it simply never does.

Everything was perfect. We walked, gave the hostess my name and were brought to our table which had been reserved for us.

It was a very busy night. The entire restaurant was buzzing.

Food was outstanding. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and able to really talk to us about specifics with each dish was had questions.

We will definitely be back and will recommend to everyone we know.

Thank you for a great experience!

Been here several times for lunch but it was the first time for dinner. Loved it. Great service, very good food, just good atmosphere. I also really liked the booth size as well. Going out for dinner with business colleagues it’s nice to not sit so close. Very roomy.

Cesar salad was bland. 6:00 reservation on time and finished at 7:50. Was too leisurely for a Monday night

It was our first time dining at this restaurant. We received a gift card. It was wonderful from the moment we walked in the door. The greeting and the wait staff couldn't have been better. My husband and I enjoyed our meal. The presentation was wonderful and the meal was delicious.

Great as always as I eat here at least 5x a month
But found it annoying to be told that we had 2 hours to sit at our table upon being seated. Imagine telling friends that you have over for dinner that you are welcome for 2 hours that you must go home and make room the next wave of friends. You just may lose some friends
Did not plan on spending more than 2hours but still annoying.
I plan many business lunches here as well as dinner events. Save the 2 hour comment for somebody else
Don’t get too cocky Carbone’s Prime, business can change quickly

Good food, great service. Was disappointed when they didn’t have an item we were looking forward to. They have updated their menu and the menu online is outdated. But, a pleasant experience overall.

We had a marvelous lunch. The lovely young lady who greeted us was so nice. She made us feel so welcomed. AJ was our server and he was also very nice. The food is consistently so delicious. I love the creative cuisine available at Carbone’s. I have been here many times for dinner and had a great experience . The lunch experience was as professional and pleasant as in the evening...and the food...extraordinary! This restaurant is such a fabulous addition to Rocky Hill.

Outstanding atmosphere. We are a bunch of “foodies”and everyone pushed away empty plates with only gratitude for a WONDERFUL meal. Everything from the appetizer to the dessert was impeccably done!

Celebrating my moms birthday. Told the waitress. She put a candle in my sons dessert, so my mom could blow out a candle. Found that strange - to spend $200 - and not get a $3 cannoli on the house. I expected more, but left feeling disappointed.

Arrived early and tried to get a drink at the bar. The bar was full of people eating at it. Bartenders did not look beyond the seated people and servers passing by did ignored us also. If we didn’t have reservations we would have walked out. Server at our table wasn’t personable and used our cocktail napkin to wipe table from spilled drinks and then put our drinks on the wet napkin. The woman greeting our table was very nice

Booth was by the bar and it was loud...that is why ambience is rated at a 3...rather be in the dining area. The waitress was great and the food was very good. We had a great time with our friends.

Four of us went out Sunday for my wife's Birthday. Went in bar and by the time we got our drinks had three different waitstaff. I ordered a Blue Moon and what I got was a flat beer in a highball glass. After I said something I was given a fresh one that was more palatable. I was informed that the keg just kicked. I'll let the rest of the night elude me.

Had a Anniversary dinner and our food was great! Our waitress was pleasant but she complained about having to get something from the back kitchen to make a drink for my husband to people at another table. Guess she thought we didn’t hear her or she wanted us to hear her. She never brought out bread to us saying that there was no more but we clearly saw that another table received it from her. Never ever been treated that way before in this restaurant. How sad.

The people are so friendly. The food was good but I would say outstanding. The appetizers were limited as were th sides that come with the dinners. I love Brussels sprouts but they are everywhere.

We went because we love the pork chop Milanese and were disappointed that it wasn’t on the menu anymore. Happy to say that the chef made us chicken Milanese which was almost as good. Hopefully the pork Milanese will be back on the menu soon.
