Family favorite for years!

We're long time customers at Carpaccio and dine there frequently. We can depend on consistently good favorites and the owner continues to add creative, flavorful items to the weekly specials and menu. Some of our "must haves" include the carpaccio, oysters asiago, oven warmed sourdough bread... read more

If you manage to go when they have Lasagna don't miss it! The eggplant parm is out of this world and you can't go wrong with the sole. Sand Dabs are great too.

Been eating here for several years when visiting family. Each time has been great. Finally discovered the secret to a super quiet table, the Monday after Mother's Day! Food is always great and there just don't seem to be many restaurants like this left. The Smoked salmon pizza is wonderful in addition to the calamari or cannelloni and the folks... More

I Loved my pasta with walnut sauce-perfection. We were a large group of 15. Arrived before 5 on Friday night and were placed at group of tables. Beautiful decor. Wonderful greeter. My issue is that not all food came out together and to worsen it 11 finished their meal with 2 others halfway through and 2 still waiting for plates.... More

Terrific sauce, good sized dishes from a long time local Italian eatery. Get there early and reserve one of the special and few tables on the street where you get to enjoy open windows on a beautiful day. The Parmigiana is fabulous, as is the chicken.

On the evening of March 14, 2015 I had a very enjoyable dinner at Carpaccio Restaurant in Menlo Park. Carpaccio Restaurant is a refined old world place with fine table linen and corresponding napkins and book type menus and wine, beer and cocktail lists. The ambience was also old world, with the walls adored with art work, artsy posters and... More

I live in Menlo Park have had some nice meals at Carpaccio over the years. Great location in downtown Menlo Park and nice ambiance. The wait staff is consistently friendly and efficient. A few days ago, my friend and I arrived on a Sunday night about 10 minutes before closing and were greeted by the hostess with "the kitchen closes... More

This was our first visit to Carpaccios and we will be back. Party of 4 tried 3 different pasta dishes and all were good. My gnocchi were light and fluffy with a tasty meat sauce. Excellent selection of wines, including by the glass.

Considering that we dined at Carpaccio on Valentines Day, it could have been less than a positive experience. But, even though the restaurant was packed, our dining experience was wonderful! Great food; great service!
