Great food, great service and reasonable pricing. There is quite a large menu to choose from and is authentic Italian food. There is parking, but it is minimal, a taxi is probably the best choice.

La Carbonara used to be a public house and when you walk in it's quite obvious, and when you use the bathroom it's even more obvious... that said the food is great and the service equally good.

We went to La Carbonara last night after reading reviews on here. We were not disappointed, even though it was very busy we never felt rushed in any way and the service was excellent. The only problem was what to eat as the choice was immense, but once chosen the portions were massive and very good quality, we will definitely... More

Staying in a local hotel for a corporate event, we decided to Google local restaurants.... and we weren't disappointed! Excellent service, beautiful food served in a lovely surrounding. The food quantities were very large,well presented and tasted amazing I will be back if I'm ever back in Swindon!

Looked this place up on trip advisor and decided to check it out. From the outside it doesn't look like much and the area also isn't that great. Had to park in residential area but once we were inside the staff were friendly, looked like atypical Italian, and food was delicious. Will come back again.

Went for date night and wasn't disappointed, we never are. The food was fantastic and so well priced for the quality and potion size. The staff are attentive and the atmosphere is lovely. Would always recommend booking though as even when you think "it's a Tuesday it'll be fine" they are busy.
