With the support of a good friend we managed to get a reservation for a table of four on a weekend in October. However, the visit was not worth it. The restaurant is very noisy and crowded. The Italien food is acceptable, but not outstanding....More

One of the classiest and best Italian restaurants you can fine. Cosy atmosphere, good service, and nice solid food. Also lovely wine list. Not cheap, but worth it.

If you're someone who dreams big, thinks of a master plan but lacks execution, Carbone won't be the place for you. You won't understand the complexity of getting a reservation , nor will you quite understand the power in execution. Carbone has mastered this beautifully....More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

On average, $150 to $175 per person, depending on your wine selection. The meal is well worth it!
