Raleigh >Casa Carbone Ristorante Itln
Don't go!. Absolutely disappointing. Not only is the atmosphere outdated and uninviting, but the food is greatly lacking; a 13 year old could cook a better meal! Our plastic tablecloth was wet, the booth seats were covered in crumbs and we were served 4 glasses of water(for two people) in the first 3 minutes of entering the building. The food was below par; bland and unattracitve. The server was doing her best, but nothing could have saved the food. We couldn't wait to get out of there. Don't waste your time or money!
Great food, value, service, and atmosphere. Like eating at Maria's home.
Reservations only for large parties. Started eating here when it was in Ridgewood shopping center.
Not bad - not great. I have had worse for sure but the cheese on the chicken parm wasn't even melted and the bread didn't seem fresh. The waitstaff was excellent however and the antipasta salad was not only large enough for 4 but good.
Very cozy!. Nice restaurant, it has a familiy atmosphere and feel. Food is great and good service. Some tables are in a bad location, where waiters come and go to the kitchen, it's a little distracting. But, if you got a good table this restaurant won't let you down.
angela. I am a transplant and was introduced to this great restaurant by my realtor 10 years ago, I have tried other Italian restaurants but the Casa remains my favorite! The food is consistently delicious, the service prompt and pleasant. While the menu offers many traditional dishes, they also have dishes that you will not find on other menus... Beef Bracciole, Chicken Oreganato, as well as offering fabulous seafood specials... my favorite is Grouper Puttanesca.
The Best Down to Earth Food. My first introduction to REAL Italian food was with the Carbone Family 25 years ago. The homemade pizza dough, daily baked bread and fresh sauces cannot be topped. I have eaten gallons of their marinara sauce which goes well with the pasta, but totally completes the fried eggplant. When I lived in Raleigh I use to order a bowl of the sauce with bread and used that as the beginning to a meal. I've taken some Italian out of town friends there and they were floored with the veal and antipasto.
Buon Appetit!!!. If you are looking for homemade food straight out of Italy, the Casa Carbone is the place to go. The Carbone family has been famous for their "good eats" for ages and still continue to be a success with the help of their daughter and son-in-law (Maria and Mike House.) So, if you are looking for authentic food for an affordable price, this is a must! Don't be surprised if you are formally greeted by of the family at the door, and expect great service and a smile.
A Raleigh Institution.
I have been eating Italian food prepared by the Carbone family for over 30 years, in fact, the first real Italian food I ate was prepared by them. It amazes me that their menu today still has most of the classic dishes I've enjoyed for so long and the price hasn't gone up that much. The quality of food, service and atmosphere still shines thru after all these years. It is comforting to know that some things in life dont change.
I love the antipasti platter and spaghetti with meatballs. The Marsala dishes are great as is the Cacciatore.
One of my favorites. I discovered Casa Carbone a couple of years ago and it has been one of my favorite places for Italian food. I love the food and the atmosphere is great as well. Their Ceasar Salad is excellent!
Grew Up Here. I grew up in Raleigh and use to enjoy this place when it was Villa Capri over in a shopping center near fairgrounds. We went back about a month ago and it was still very good! i got pizza since i had my little girl and it was very very good. no andy's, but yet very good. the calamari is good too! lots of traditional dishes.........atmosphere is very nice and we got excellent service on that visit.........
