Our party of four had a delightful lunch at Carpaccio's. They have a full menu with additional daily specials. Our group had the mushroom risotto special, a NY steak sandwich, chicken breast salad and canelloni. Except for the cannelloni being a bit over-saged, the dishes were all full servings and... read more

Spaghetti and meatballs is a true measure of a good, local, family friendly Italian place which is exactly what Carpaccio's is supposed to be. The spaghetti was great as was the bolegnese sauce. The meatballs tasted like they'd been microwaved and just weren't nearly as good as the actual spaghetti. For the $24 price tag - I actually expected a... More

Consistenty good food and service. Always packed. Front table open to the street. It's a bit of an older crowd. Love the carpaccio.

Carpaccio is an Italian restaurant that offers a wide variety of delicious food and excellent service. The front section along the window is especially pleasant when the window is open, making it an open front restaurant. Favorites on the menu include the carpaccio, melanzana (eggplant) and their pasta dishes. This is a restaurant that locals return to, time and time... More

A friend of mine suggested I should go. The place looks good. napkin, etc. The food is poor taste. The service was poor and slow but this is due to crowd. So I Will not experience That again. Sorry !

When I travel to the Bay Area, one of my must have meals is at Carpaccio. The restaurant is divine. The meal was just as yummy as I remember, great wine selection and house salad with the best sourdough bread ever!!!

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant. Make sure you book as it is very busy. The cocktails and food are wonderful. I had the carpaccio starter which is simply divine and the veal is to die for. The blueberry panna cotta was wonderful too. Service is slow however when you are relaxing with a group that works well allowing for... More

After several years of avoiding this place after a chef change we returned twice to try again. We wish we hadn't. Even the simplest pasta dish was over seasoned. Dishes were hot once upon a time.. No longer. Service is good, decor is good. Food.... Is not good.
