“Reasonably Priced, No Frills Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

My partner and I dropped into Carlito's for a late-ish dinner on a Friday night with no reservation, and were seated and served promptly. Food was average, but a nice enough change from the traditional Belgian fare.

We started with standard Bruschetta, which was great, albeit a little oily. My partner and I both had Carbonara, (she with Tagliatelle and I with Penne) and our only gripe with either was that the portion sizes were just too large.

House wines were also of great quality.

“Excellent pasta!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Walk in and smell the wonderful Italian aromas. I had linguine in clam sauce with the most succulent clams. We started our meal with an assortment of bruschetta that was delicious. it was so good we went back a second night for pizza.

“respite from chocolate!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

this is a no thrills Italian restaurant. Sometimes all you need and want is a steaming bowl of pasta, pizza or gnocchi. A reasonable choice for vegetarians. It is attached to a bar and a hostel and is a short walk from the Burg.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Had dinner one night while we were in Bruges. Food and atmosphere were great, staff were friendly. Overall this was well worth a stop if you are in town. If you have a town map it is very easy to find. Book a reservation as this place can get very buisy.

“Authentic Italian in Bruges!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We were squeezed in on a busy Saturday night. It has a really good feel to the place. The pizzas are made fresh in the open kitchen, and it's compulsive viewing watching the man work his magic with the dough. It smells like an authenic Italian restaurant and the food tastes really good too. The staff are young and friendly, and work well as a team, and the prosecco is light and fresh. The bill was a pleasant surprise too!
