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.

We were seating in the bar at a booth and felt very comfortable with the measures they have taken with covid 19.
My husband ordered the wedge salad and NY strip, he was very happy with both. I ordered the Berkshire Pork Chop special. Done to perfect. We always enjoy eating at Carbone's Prime.

We have never had a bad meal and tonight was no exception. The dry aged NY strip was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The Italian green bean special was equally as amazing.

We were taken late for our reservation and they were out of certain drinks, but that was made up for with comping one drink. The drinks we did end up getting were great. I never had a lavender martini before and really enjoyed this one. The fried mozz was very good and so were the entrees. I would definitely go again.

We had the best experience at Carbone’s Prime on Wednesday. It was a Birthday dinner and it was the first time we ate inside here since the Pandemic. The ladies that greeted us were so welcoming and sat us at a great table. felt so safe! It was extremely clean and well planned out for the customers. There was plexiglass between booths and a panel next to the aisle. Our server Lauren was so good too! She was very helpful and made our dining experience very nice. She even put the candle in the dessert for my husband’s birthday...which he later blew out with a wish when she walked away. The food was also tremendous. We both had the same entre...Summer Risotto with Salmon. I highly recommend this dinner choice. Of course, when you come to Carbone’s you have a certain expectation of excellence...and they have never disappointed us!
Thanks for a great dining experience! This is why we keep coming back.

Plank salmon was delicious. We also enjoyed the antipasto. The service was great and the food spaced out so you could enjoy your appetizers before the main course came out.

We dined outside under the canopy, tables were nicely spaced for plenty of room and coversation. Our server was amazing! Attentive, informative, had a sense of humor and gave us the space we needed to catch up with friends. Tables were also nicely spaced for indoor dining. Dinner, drinks and apps were absolutley delicious as always. This is one of our go-to's for dinner and/or drinks and we'll be back of course.

We love Carbone Prime. Only complaint is the lighting in the last booth next to the bar where we sat needs a light. Needed to hold up our candle to read the menu. Other than that food was amazing! Loved the mignonette with the oysters!! Service was spectacular (AJ and Kyle)! Drink selection was spot on and desserts topped it off just right. Thank you and we can’t wait to be back!

The food was absolutely spectacular! The arancini is the best we've ever had. We had polenta as part of our meal and my spouse who doesn't like polenta could not stop eating it. So delicious and beautiful on the plates. The bartender poured a drink the way it should be done (a lot of times, restaurants are very skimpy with the alcohol and you feel ripped off paying for the price you are paying for so little but not here. Our server was not 100% on top of things. We were missing silverware/napkin. The silverware was brought (after asking) but no napkin which we had to ask for again (after we had started eating). Thus the 4 versus a 5 on service overall. The place is really pretty too. All in all - fantastic meal and experience.

In the COVID era, good times are hard to find, but my experience tonight has given me the light that I have been searching for, for months. Lauren, the bartender, somehow managed to handle the entire bar and lounge area while providing attentive service throughout. I have nothing but positive things to say about the service I received from Lauren. 5 stars.
