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

I went to the restaurant with my parents and had a pleasant lunch. The starter that I had was a little disappointing- prawn cocktail. Then the mains came which were lovely. The calves liver was tender and the chicken beautifully cooked with a sauce. The Chicken Milanese was also great. An abundance of vegetables was again very nice and plentiful.... More

We've been to Carlo's a number of times over the past few years and found the meals to be good, always. The regular menu offers a wide choice, supplemented by the day's specials. The service is attentive and friendly without being too formal or pretentious. On this occasion (29 July 2014), we arrived quite late and were the last ones... More

This is a classic case of something not living up to the hype. Perhaps I'd be writing a better review of Carlo's had I not read the Trip Advisor reviews beforehand. Anyway, last night was date night and my boyfriend and I went out for dinner to Carlo's Trattoria. As I've mentioned in other reviews, I'm on the hunt for... More

I've eaten at Carlo's a few times now after only discovering it last year. I wish I had done so sooner as each time the family has enjoyed fine food, friendly service and lots of interaction with the staff. Some people on here saying it's gone downhill. As a newbie I cannot comment but I used to visit both bar... More

We were staying in Guildford the night before visiting my son at Pirbright ATC. Having booked into the hotel, we drove around on the lookout for a desirable place to eat. We'd driven 5 hours so needed good food and ambience aplenty. Out of nowhere, and along delightful country lanes, we stumbled across Carlo's. I would presume the clientele are... More
