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

Great little family get together Negatives Lacked a bar area Food was average Not a brilliant cheese board but personally Italians aren't known for cheeseboards. Would I return, probably a bit to far out to rush back. Good luck... More

Sunday lunch for 9 people. Restaurant was very busy. Starter arrived fairly quickly. Then waited about 1 hour for main course. Dessert arrived in good time. In the mean time 2 bowls of garlic bread put on the table which we had not ordered and assumed it was complimentary. Should have known in an Italian restaurant !!!. All the food... More

Thank you very much for your review from your lunch with us on Sunday. I am aware that it was an exceptionally busy lunch with over 100 customers and so I sincerely apologise that the there may have been a longer wait time than usual for your main course. I just wanted to confirm that garlic bread is never charged... More

Had a good meal here today. Service was very good and the food was delicious, but the portion size was disappointing. Prices for starters are around the £8 mark with mains at £17. I would expect much more food for this sort of money. That said I did enjoy my meal.

Went with a group for lunch. The food was excellent albeit the service was rather slow. It seemed a rather noisy room even though it was only about 2/3 full - not sure whether it was noisy diners or poor acoustics - I suspect the latter as we noticed the same when we visited a couple of years ago. Well... More
