A small family run restaurant with really excellent food and casual, friendly ambience. Their stated motto on the front of the menu translates roughly as: "simple cooking for easy going people." The ingredients were simple and fresh, but the preparation was refined. The pasta with pumpkin sauce was memorable; the roasted chicken and roasted lamb were both superb; for an... More

I have had lunch at Da Carlo three times over the past few years when traveling to Orvieto, and it is my favorite place. Carlo and his family are wonderful and the food is some of the best I have had in Italy. The pasta that I had on the most recent visit, Carlo's specialty with pork and fennel, was... More

The trattoria was so busy during our lunchtime visit that we had to sit at a table close to the kitchen, you would normally pay extra for this in some establishments but here you can watch the comings and goings of the staff and get a running commetary of how your meal is progressing from the proprietor and head chef...

Lunch at Da Carlo is a true Italian experience. Carlo is out front with his mother taking care of his customers, and his small team is in the kitchen. But in reality, Carlo is out front taking care of his customers and his mother Teresa. She is a delight, but speaks little English. And Carlo has to sometimes come and... More

Our foursome has been traveling separately and together in Italy, but we all agreed this was one of the best meals we have experienced during our visit. We stopped for a small lunch and were very impressed. The flavors were outstanding from the bean zuppo to the eggplant parmesano to the insalata. Very good service, too. We all gave this... More

We had two pasta dishes for late lunch. Fine food, good prices, excellent service, friendly waitstaff, prompt. Nice location off the main Corso di Cavour.

We were recommended to this restaurant by our villa owner and had such a wonderful lunch on tables set up in a little alley off Corso Cavour, that we went back several days later again. There is a wonderful comedy act between Carlo and his delightful mother. Let Carlo suggest what to eat - I did and had 2 wonderful... More

I spotted this restaurant from the Corso Cavour and was immediately taken by the beautiful setting. Soft jazz playing and a warm but not hot autumn day made it perfect. I had to wait for a table but it was worth it. Organic salad with truffle and fresh pasta with pork (on Carlo's recommendation) ... Both stunning. I was treated... More

Carlo unashamedly cooks *his* food and not for the masses. If you want pizza, pasta and like coca-cola with your food - you're in the wrong place. If you don't want to put a price on authenticity and allow him to show you his world - you will be rewarded.

We had a simple lunch da Carlo, just a pasta and 1/2 L of house wine. The pasta was home made and very good. Carlo himself invented the receipt out of the blue at our table and over exaggerated. It feld like a tourist trap to me.
