The best selection of Italian food in the area, wonderful wines and delicious desserts all make this a restaurant not to miss.

Going to Carlo's is like stepping into Italy. The food is superb and the atmosphere and staff are lovely. We always come away having very much enjoyed our evening both the food and the staff. Their speciality ravioli is incredible! Molto buono!

Have visited a couple of times and have left a bit dissatisfied each visit. Food seems to lack inspiration with a lack of skill and care from the kitchen. Feel the restaurant is resting on its Laurels. Maybe because there is not much Italian competition locally. Having said that always friendly and I would not say don't go. Just don't... More

Great restaurants near Guildford sometimes seem surprisingly hard to find but thankfully Carlo's is an exception. We have eaten here as a family in the evening at the weekend on a couple of occasions and we really enjoy it. The welcome is always warm and the service is good humoured. There is a wide range of Italian fare on the... More

I went last night to celebrate my birthday with my husband and two friends. The interior was lovely, the staff pleasant, although the owner was rather gruff. The food was lovely although perhaps a little lacking in flavor (I am just speaking for my own dish of tagliatelle). We did wait a very long time to receive our main course.... More

We have been to Carlo.s a couple of times now and have found the service excellent. The food is wonderful with so much to choose from, it is freshly cooked and is presented beautifully. We would recommend anyone to go whether for lunch or dinner.

First, the good stuff - friendly staff (except the very gruff owner), nice ambiance, tempting specials board and good menu. Now the less good - the food was obviously freshly cooked and made, but the flavours were distinctly muted in all of our dishes even the desserts; the room was cold and the most disappointing bit - the final cost...

My husband and I made a special trip to Carlos as we had passed it many times and decided to try it for our anniversary meal which fell on a Monday. The restaurant was pretty empty but I felt rushed - the waiter coming by several times before we ordered and there was hardly any time between finishing our starter... More

My wife loves Italian food so we have scoured Surrey for the best Italian around - Carlos wins by a Surrey mile! Good fresh cooked food, great service, top wine list and always nice to be welcomed by Carlos himself.
