Carbonara App is a free digital waitlist and restaurant reservation system that allows you to seamlessly handle both walk-in customers and guests who have reserved tables.

Created simultaneously for restaurants, cafés, and bars, our app offers an approachable set of features:
- a digital waitlist to manage virtual queues;
- an online booking service to schedule reservations, and
- most recently, an innovative pre-ordering system to allow customers to buy beverages or order food before being seated.

All of Carbonara App’s features are completely free and come at zero cost whatsoever.

Send free SMS messages and text guests in the virtual queue to inform them when their table is ready. Fill your tables with walk-in host strategies — such as two-way communication features to manage your tables in real-time.

If you’re a reservation-based restaurant, guests use the app to make online bookings. Customers reserve tables from anywhere on the web, either via your website or social media platform.

Smoothly schedule your operating hours, and apply table management features to select free tables and seat guests.

Carbonara App’s new drink pre-ordering feature lets customers buy alcoholic beverages before they arrive. Customers click on a link to purchase, then your restaurant receives the full amount, no deduction fees included. Increase your restaurant’s revenue with this free feature.

It's as simple as ABC: Guests waiting at your door don't want to feel like anyone is wasting their time.

So we developed a free app to see hospitality businesses prosper.

Give guests what they want — a smart platform to enhance their dining out experience and enjoy their meals with zero hassle.

Be the ideal host: let Carbonara App help you fork up a first-class hospitality experience today!
