I am not one for complaining and the people who work here are great but the food was truly awful uninteresting tasteless and plain bad. We were there with 6 people and my wife and daughter and I all pretty much hated our pasta dishes. The Olive tampanade served with the bread was tasteless, I had a pasta carbonara and... More

I returned to carpaccio after a long break and was reminded why I have been here so many times in the past. I spend three months a year living in Tuscany and I find the quality here as good as Italy. Th entrees are huge and delicious. I had the short ribs and they were great. I will return again... More

We were visiting my mom and husband and took them out to dinner. It had been a while since my mom went to Carpaccio, and she really enjoyed going. The service is impeccable. The veal, carbonara, and cannelloni offerings were all wonderful. And the wine list is excellent. We'll be back.

I went with my 8 years old son. Everything was just good. The service was ok, and the food good. ( calamari, pizza and gnocchi). We liked the ambient.

Ten years ago our friends in Palo Alto brought us to Carpaccio to show us how good life was hereabouts. Then we moved to Menlo Park three years later. There are at least a dozen restaurants within walking distance of our home. I rate Carpaccio at the top in a crowded field. We've been here a dozen times. We'd come... More

This is an old school restaurant that seemingly has been serving family italian meals in downtown Menlo Park since forever. Unfortunately, the food and service feels like that as well. Uninspired, unless you like your italian food out of can, hence spagettios, is the most optimistic way to describe the quality of the food. It is simple standard family italian... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. The food and service is good and consistent. It's more of a locals place.

I am never disappointed with the food and service at this place. Good wine selections, ambiance, and delicious food are what I like best in a restaurant, and this has it.
