We happened to be staying in the hotel next door and heard there was an Italian restaurant nearby, so just decided to try it. Wow and wow. The menu choice is amazing, I just couldn't make my mind up there was so much to choose from. In the end I went for grilled stuffed sardines, I can honestly say they... More

Went here early July 2014, had been previously and had a good meal and service, but this time - bad mistake - took 55 min's from sitting down at the table to get our starter. The main meal was OK, but nothing exceptional (I had the lamb special, and when it came, it was half the meal I expected, almost... More

We had a lovely family meal here. The food was excellent, the service was friendly, jovial and welcoming. The pace of service was fine, laid back & not intrusive.

We've been to Carlos quite a few times over the years and always enjoyed it, so when I was asked to book somewhere for a family dinner I booked here. Mistake. I don't know whether there was a one-off problem that night but the service was slow and the food problematic. The garlic bread starter arrived with the main course,... More

Never having tried this restaurant before would we go back? Most definitely. The service was friendly and efficient, the wine (Chianti) quality good and the food was really tasty. The age range in our party was 19 - 86 and we were not hurried through even though it was a Friday night. A very pleasant way to spend 4 hours!

My partner and I had a lovely meal at Carlo's celebrating our 10yr anniversary. We had passed several times and heard several recommendations and it was worth the visit. The food was fantastic and service very good. Would go again.

On Tuesday last we made our 5th or 6th visit to Carlo's. As in all our previous visits the food was excellent and the service was cheerful and attentive without being intrusive. A perfect balance. My own starter (home made ravioli with tiger prawn and shrimp) was out of this world and our friends were equally complimentary about their choices.

We ate here one evening without prior booking, a party of 5 including a 2yr old. The first part of the meal went smoothly & quickly but after our main course had been cleared away we were left a good 20 minutes before being given the dessert menu, then around another 20 minutes before we could catch a waiter's attention...

This was our first visit to Carlo's Trattoria, we ate from the set menu, at £14.95 per head it was excellent value for money and the food was delicious. The service was friendly without being pushy, the atmosphere relaxed. The waiters were delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will definitely be going back.
