Nicely located italian trattoria. A bit of a throwback to the 80's ubiquitous Italian restaurants that sprung up at that time. Decent enough interior and for a Tuesday lunch time pretty busy with regulars most of whom were retired couples / groups. We were handed a fixed price lunch menu but were not given an al a carte choice or... More

I have been going to Carlo's for over 10 years now and they never fail to deliver. The food is authentic, the service great and they are always prepared to make you something slightly different if you ask nicely! We will continue to go I am sure for years to come.

Carlo the owner is fantastic - you must get him to read you the specials. The food is fantastic and it is right on the top of Newlands Corner so ideal for a stunning walk followed by some great food

We've had many good meals here and are not disappointed each time we visit. Very accomodating for children. Wide range of food on offer, either on the a la carte, specials or set menus. Reasonable pricing for what you are getting. We've had our wedding and christening for our children here and Carlo and his team have always been great... More

Having seen the reviews on here we went to Carlo's for a quiet weekday lunch to discuss business. We ate from the fixed price menu - we were not offered the carte or directed towards the specials boards. The food on offer was classic Italian restaurant fare, with no special twists, but that is fine if it is good food.... More

How disappointing! We went to this restaurant on advice from our hotel & we were so disappointed. I arrived with a group of my friends for my hen do - I know what you're thinking but we weren't your usual hens. We wanted a lovely, quiet (ish) meal with a glass of wine before heading out. The food was delicious... More

Guildford is something of a desert when it comes to good independent restaurants so thank heavens for Carlo's. I'm surprised I haven't written a review before because Carlo's has become a firm favourite of ours. This most recent visit didn't disappoint. We usually choose from the specials board - there can often be someting different (fresh-picked porcini as a started... More

We visited a few days' ago (Friday evening) as a party of 6. We had a great evening; the food and service are excellent and we all enjoyed friendly banter with the staff, which created a fun and pleasant ambiance. We all ordered different starters and mains and all of us thought the food was delicious. We will be back!

I was here on business staying at a nearby hotel and stumbled across this hidden gem of a restaurant by mistake. I ordered sardines as a starter and Carlo's King Prawns for mains and was delighted by the flavours and textures and portions of food. The meal was fantastic and reasonably priced. I would reccomend this to any Italian food... More
