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.

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.

We arrived and we were greeted by a smiling friendly hostess (Kathryn).
We decided to eat at the bar for Happy hour. The bar tender came over and we ordered cocktails and they were great. Our dinner was delicious . We ordered a pasta dish and a chicken dish with Pasta. Every thing we ordered was prompt and hot. We definitely
Would return to Carbone Prime.
Easy to get to . Right off of I 91 in Rocky Hill.

This was our first time going out to eat since Covid. We were a little nervous at first, but this restaurant completely put us at ease! All staff greeted us and was very friendly. Our waitress was so polite and sweet. They were very clean! All staff had on masks and clean gloves. Restaurant and bathrooms were very clean. Food came out fast and hot. Everything was delicious! We even had someone come up to our table to ask how everything was. It was not crowded and every other table was used. It was our first time going there, and definitely not our last. We will be back for sure! Thanks to all the staff for making our first time going back to a restaurant an excellent experience!

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.

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.
