If you're looking for a lively restaurant with good food and service, this is a great place to eat. The welcome was warm and the service prompt. We had to wait a little while for our food but all the tables were packed. When the food arrived it was well worth waiting for. Tender veal and succulent beef. Definitely going... More

A friend wanted to thank us for favours we had done for him and asked us to choose a local restaurant.We checked the menu on line and it seemed there was plenty of choice.Considering there were only 8 other people there for lunch the service was dreadfully slow and when the food arrived it really wasn't anything to get excited...

We asked for 7:30, but settled for 8 o'clock. We were right on time, but had to stand in a crowded bar for 25 minutes until our table was ready. It was another 20 minutes before our orders for starters and drinks were taken. The quality of the starters (when they eventually arrived) was poor, and the main courses were... More

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
