The return

I haven't been to Carlo's for over 10years, but clearly it was time I did. Visited on a Friday night so the place was busy. Gone the old shed like appearance, much bigger. The menu was extensive and it all sounded lovely. Choice of specials too. Service was good, food very good and it won't be... read more

Food was very good with excellent service. Don't know how they manage to provide such good food with such a large menu selection. Desserts wonderful too.

We used to go to Carlos regularly and have dined there perhaps 15 times or more. A few years ago, I would have given Carlos 5 stars but recently we noticed the portions getting smaller and the prices going up. Nevertheless, its a great place to go for a special occasion with a superb range of dishes from traditional Italian... More

We have not been here for a long time but the food was as good as I remember. Large choice of specials introduced by Carlo with an impressive selection of fish and sea food and equally good menu. Portions just right size and very well presented. Wine a bit too expensive which has therefore lost points on the overall value... More

We have a lot of experience of Italian cooking - mainly in Italy - but this was something quite exceptional. Carlo himself is benign - like a grandfather should be - but the staff (mostly family) did not let him down. I( have never been in ANY restaurant where the pressure and the crowd were dealt with using charm and... More

Good food plenty of choice some items a little on the pricey side but good service and atmosphere. Visited with friends very busy I think it would be best to book to avoid disappointment - limited car parking.
