ISO Carbonara on the Peninsula

Besides Olive Garden which is pretty horrible really.

Il Fornaio has it as a special once in awhile and it's pretty authentic actually but I would like to find a place with good Pasta Carbonara where it isn't just occasionally available.

Anyone have recommendations on the Peninsula?

  1. You might try a search for carbonara at this site, pick your peninsula city although those nearby SF get lumped into the city e.g. South SF and Burlingame.

    1. Van's in Belmont has a version on their menu They have a website.

      Bella's in Redwood City also has it on their menu, they may be closed, had a fire in Dec. They have a website.

      I like both restaurants, but have not tried their carbonara(s).
