all the family(6) at very short notice just after christmas (boxing day !)

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.

Unprepossessing on the outside, Carlo's is warm and friendly within. The lunchtime menu is excellent value for money with unusual choices and generous portions. Food is well presented and service courteous and leisurely.

Haven't been here for years but not a lot has changed - essentially a nice enough Italian - food was luke warm and no idea why they served mashed potato with everything? Couldn't recommend but sure you wouldn't be offended by going. Don't expect a late buzzy night either - all over and empty by 10.30pm on a Friday night!

Used for special occasions. Varied menu and very reasonably priced. And Carlo himself is always on hand, which gives a personal touch.

An impromptu early Mother's Day treat which exceeded expectations. Friendly, relaxed service. Amazing specials board and flexible portion sizes. The children loved the lasagne, calamari and seafood pasta. Whilst the adults enjoyed the fresh crab, asparagus and ravioli followed by delicious monk fish, seafood lasagne and dover soul. Delicious! It was 18 years since our last visit but it won't... More

This proved to be an excellent choice of venue for a family gathering. The food was very well presented and very tasty, and all the varied dishes chosen were enjoyed. The set menu had enough variety to please most tastes and was excellent value for the money. The service was efficient during what proved to be a busy lunchtime. The... More
