A truly enjoyable meal

Visited for the first time on 22nd August and we all enjoyed the food and the excellent service from the waiters. We shall go again to try more from the menu.

Okay so the quality of the food was very good. Everything was prepared lovingly and tasted great. The down side was the portion size and the price for these tiny meals. I really can't understand why anyone would want to pay more for less? How does that work. I ended up coming home and making myself a sandwich. What really... More

We had a very good family meal. We tried all fish off the specials on the board rather than the normal menu and everything was just perfect. The stuffed calamari was amazing. The bill will come as rather high but the quality of the food and the very good service deserve it. The wine was excellent at a surprisingly reasonable... More

We took a diversion from our normal route home and were so pleased that we did. I was getting hungry, and it was getting late for lunch, when we passed Carlo's sign, reversed rapidly, and went in to check if we could have a meal. I was instantly impressed by the fact that we were welcomed, even though it was... More

I took a friend for lunch there, only four people when I arrived but this soon filled up. As it was a celebration I requested the full menu although the couple next to me said what good value the set meal was four pieces of delicious moist and garlicky bread were brought to start, I could just have eaten a...

Came here for the first time for my birthday and our wedding anniversary out of curiosity having lived locally for several years. After a friendly enough welcome things went downhill from there. Perhaps our faces didn't fit and life is too short and decent competition is too numerable locally to try somewhere such as this out more than once to... More

I recently visited Carlos on a work summer meal and the food was to die for! The melanzane alla parmigiana was incredible! It reminded me of the one our family friends make us when we visit them in Rome. The aubergines were just right, the Parmesan was very tasty and mature and the tomato sauce was incredible. Seeing as this... More

We visited Carlo's for the first time for a meal on our wedding anniversary. We had high expectations having read the reviews and had recommendations from friends. We visited on a Thursday evening. The food was very good. We ate from the main menu which was very reasonably priced for main courses and desserts. Starters were a little on the... More
