“Italian at its Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Knowing the Italian kitchen by many holidays spent in Italy itself the clear recommendation for this restaurant is: you MUST NOT miss it while staying in Hua Hin. All dishes are original Italian and come with an excellent quality and this typical Italian/Mediterranean taste.
Carlo, the "patrone", is managing his restaurant with high dedication and nothing escapes his eyes, even while talking and joking with the guests. Knowing many good restaurants around the globe, the "Carlo Ristorante" is definitely one of the best Italian restaurants outside Italy.

“By far the best in Hua Hin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I don't understand why Carlos isn't number 1?! We've stayed in Hua Hin for 11 nights now, and are leaving tomorrow for Bangkok, and in that time have visited Carlos 4 times. Every single time the man himself had been there to greet us, check to see if our food is okay, and just for a little chat!

Been with our family, and I think we've had nearly everything on the menu! The pizza is fabulous, the pasta is perfect, and it's just Italian
heaven!

The service is brilliant with happy smiling waiters and waitresses who are always on the ball and attentive to you. They're all so lovely and where me and my brother have curly hair(my brothers being ringlets and perfect curls) they seem to remember us and they all obsess over my brothers hair! He loves it! They're always there to refill your drinks and there's always someone around if you need anything.

The setting of the restaurant is brilliant. Calming and relaxing, you can sit inside or outside, I do recommend outside. They have breadsticks and mini baguettes whilst you wait for your meal and will keep replacing as many times as you want.

The food comes quickly and our desserts came super quick! Every meal we've had, wether it's been a scoop of ice cream or a spaghetti carbonara, everything looks appetising and inviting.

During our little chat with Carlos who has been there very time we've eaten, my dad mentioned it was our last night and thanked him for such a wonderful time, and then as we were paying the bill and giving our tips, Carlos approached and asked if we would like a drink on the house, we couldn't decide so he chose us a limoncello and a coke for the little one.

All in all, Carlos is the most perfect restaurant that Hua Hin has. We've already started planning next years holiday and eating at Carlos again is top of our list!

“What's not to like”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Located opposite Centara Grand, fantastic looking inside and out. Good service, food was excellent, freshly prepared pasta and best quality pizza. If you were served a meal this quality in EU you would be pleasantly surprised. Try the gnocchi it's out of this world. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

“By far the Best Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Having been at Carlo more than 5 times I can testify to the quality from beginning to end of every single dinner I've had to date. The staff is exceptionally well trained, attentive, professional and polite, and beautifully complimenting the superior selection of high quality Italian dishes - and not to mention the wine selection. All in all please do yourself a favor and enjoy Carlo.

“Again & Again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

I need to say it again, it`s not a wonder that CARLO makes this big steps forward here on the tripadvisor page, for me and it seams for many other people as well, CARLO is the best italian restaurant in hua hin.
The food and hospitality is just great and you really can feel home at CARLO. It`s easy going and the standard of the foot is superb.
Again & again I will return !
