Italian Flair and food quality in Bern

I stayed in Bern for business and had the pleasant chance to have a romantic dinner and lunch at "Da Carlo" Italian Restaurant. Welcome, ambience, service and food quality so as also quantity were excellent! I highly recommend visiting if you have a chance. The owner is always very polite... read more

We stopped here for lunch before having a look around Bern. After squeezing into our table we were served by what I can only describe as our bumbling waiter but to his defence he ended up getting the order right in the end. The restaurant actually has a great atmosphere but the food wasn't anything special, if anything it was... More

Stopped by this restaurant on my way to the station and because it was reasonably rated on TA. Big mistake! Service: Ok Venue: There is a small terrace that was partially under the sun at lunch time Food: Got an average salad and overcooked tagliatelle (although I specified I want them al dente) al salmon. The fact is they pre-cook... More

The atmosphere is nice, maybe a little exageratedly Italian, but pleasant. The waiters team are funny, quick, and definitively all Italian. The food however is the (unfortunately) mix of Swiss-German revisited Italian that is quite common in any city in Switzerland. It's therefore common to see pasta dishes with tagliatelle and some scaloppine on the side!! Pizza-wise it's not different,... More

Great on ambience. Cool outside patio. We had a struggle with the language. But if that's not an issue....put this one on your list if you're in the neighborhood. Hotel Sorell Ador just around the corner.

This restaurant claims to be Italian, but the dishes don't even remind Italian cooking. The food is unsatisfactory and the flavors are mixed together without any cooking skill. I tried many different restaurants in Bern, and I think that you can find excellent food around, but probably Da Carlo was the worst of them all. The atmosphere and service is... More

Noch einmal waren wir im Da Carlo und wurden rundum verwohnt! Maria, Walty und il Capo Gianni Masullo haben mit Freude und Herzlichkeit ihre Gaste bewirtet und unterhalten. Das Essen war, wie immer hervorragend; das Lamm und das Rindsfilet waren zart und super Lecker, sowie das Risotto - das beste Risotto das ich je gegessen habe! Weiter so liebes Da... More

Great Italian food (piemont), more than just pizza. Friendly service.
