One of the greatest empanadas in the area. They have argentinian style like meat, chicken, cheese & ham. I'm also very fan of their "chimichurri" sauce for meat.

We were lucky to have lunch twice at this restaurant. The first time we had some empanadas for starters and had pizzas for entrees. The empanadas were light and crispy and tasty. This pizza had fresh ingredients and a nice thin crust. I would eat here again.

My husband and I have pizza from Carlitos every other Friday evening. The pizza is delicious with a crust that isn't too thick or too thin and the toppings are plentiful. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very Panama homey and the staff is courteous and very helpful.

Carlito's has really good thin crust pizza. One of the best I ever had. A little pricey at $10 but still delicious.

We stopped here traveling the Panamerican Highway. The service and food was excellent. On the way back from our venture we stopped again. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area or passing thru! Ask them questions about Panama. They are so friendly and willing to share their experiences.

We stopped here after a day on the beach, after hearing great reviews about the place. Plus side, they allowed our dog to come in (front part of the restaurant), and even made sure he had a water bowl. Food itself, however, wasn't all that good. Maybe we should've tried the empanadas. Instead, we had lasagnas, one beef, and one... More

It was a pleasant surprise to eat delicious empanadas and pizza from this open space. I sense the secret to the pizzas are empanada crust! Another dish a friend and I shared was chimichurri roasted pork rib. It was perfectly roasted, crispy on the outside and fork tender. They served a side of chimichurri and hot sauce which brings an... More

Four of us ate there last night and had a great experience. The empanadas were outstanding and inexpensive. We tried almost all the varieties. The favorite for all of us was the chicken curry, with runner-ups being the beef with raisins and the cheese. As others have mentioned, the "picante" versions are rather spicy. The one member of our group... More

Went there with my family and was overall pleased. Pizza was good but the truck traffic outside was very loud. Apparently the trucker let off their jake brakes to slow up and they are quite loud .

There were several things on the menu that I would have liked to order. We ended up getting the chicken & spinach lasagna. I couldn't tell if there were any noodles in it and there was very little spinach. It didn't come with a side salad so we ordered one for $6.75 that was just iceberg lettuce with a little... More
