Way Over-rated – Four of us went to Casa Carbone yesterday. Our friends wanted to go elsewhere, but their pick was a chain restaurant and as it was our choice, we picked CC since it is family-owned. Big mistake. The bread was a step removed from Wonder Bread, I have had a better salad when I took my grandson to the Golden Corral, and the desserts (we tried two of them) were only so-so. The entrees were also so-so -- nothing special, and way too heavy on the salt. The young lady who kept our water glasses topped up was fine, but our (male) waiter never did anything but take the orders and bring the servings. We finally got tired of having empty plates accumulate on the table, and we piled them up on an empty table next to us. If all you want to do is put stuff in your stomach, CC would work but would also be more expensive that other places that could do the same. If you are looking for good food, though, better look elsewhere.
Great Food, Great Prices – Why go to a chain like Olive Garden when you can go to Casa Carbone for better food at similar or even better prices? My first trip here was a success. Our family can be picky about food and everyone liked what they got. If you are looking for fru fru Italian, this is not the place. But for traditional recipes like lasagna and chicken parm, this is a great place. With many pasta dishes under $10, you won't break the bank. Great bread and service top off the place. The restaurant is huge and they accept reservations. We plan on going back in the future.
Great Food, Friendly people – Casa Carbone is a has great Italian cuisine. There are a few different seating areas that are perfect whether with a group, the family or on a date. It is a great family owned restaurant. Everyone is friendly and it is easy to tell that they take pride in their work. They take reservations for large parties and can accommodate almost any number.
Consistently Delicious – Casa Carbone's food and service is excellent. Waiters and waitresses are friendly and concerned about the customers. The food is always delicious and filling. Casa Carbone always gives you a ton of food and it is so addicting I cannot stop eating. The Eggplant Marinara was the best I have ever had. It is breaded to perfection and the sauce is extraordinary. When you leave the restaurant you are stuffed to the max. The prices are also very reasonable. You won't feel like you've been robbed of your money. I have been to Casa Carbone dozens of times and it has been very consistent. Casa Carbone is an incredible restaurant and I am positive other people will enjoy it too.
Date Night place to be – Casa Carbone is a special part of Raleigh for family dining. All the food is good, anything with their marinara sauce is outstanding. Their service is friendly, attentive, and gracious. You feel like family as you are greeted in entering the restaurant. Their wine list gives many fine choices. The calamari is the best in Raleigh. Be warned that the antipasto can feed four with little room left over for the entree (If getting antipasto for four, order two extra stuffed clams). Probably the best value in dining in Raleigh. Do not be put off by long lines waiting to get in on the weekends, you normally are seated within 15 minutes and can be served a drink while you wait. Also, when they tell you that the plate is hot, believe them.
Great Food, Good Value – I have eaten here many times and found the quality of the food and service to be consistantly wonderful. I have eaten at other italian restaurants and Casa Carbone is the best in Raleigh. This family owned and operated restaurant is a hidden treasure for many locals and a pleasant find for folks who a want good, hearty, homemade italian meal in a cozy setting. The prices are extremely affordable and the grouper special is my favorite.
Save your money...order Dominos – My husband order spagetti and I order Lasgana. They tasted exactly the same. The worst food we've had in a restaurant. It looks like the senior crowd really likes the place.
Good italian – I ate here several years ago while on a business trip. The food was good, nice and hearty. The staff was attentive but not overly so. The atmosphere isn't upscale but I was there to eat, not be seen or entertained. When my out of town family visits we usually end up here. It reminds me of the Italian restaurant that was near my house in RI.
Good, Not Great... – Well, here we go again... I've lived in Raleigh for 3 years heard mixed reviews about Casa Carbone finally ordered take out last night. I ordered the Fett. Alfredo with Chicken, Ceaser Salad and bread...total bill was approx $19. All in all, I rate the food good, not great...with all due respect there are better Italian restaurants in the Triangle to choose from (solely my opinion) I was disappointed in the decor, and the darkness of the restaurant. My food would have been considered great if the dish would have had more flavor, my salad dressing was slightly biter and our bread was burnt...but, still good. I wasn't disappointed, just not overly excited.
