“Great food and ambience, fair price for the quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We had a birthday dinner here and really everything was very good - food, service, ambience, and presentation. This restaurant is upscale, not very high end but the price point is right for the quality. Other than it taking the waiter a little too long to ask for our orders, I have no complaints. A good place for a celebration or to take a date.

“Well prepared Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Good Italian comfort food. Warm waiters, cocktails are perfect. I always order the calamari steaks. It comes with a good wine sauce and pasta side. Always have a good time here.

“Good spot for family gatherings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

There is definitely something for everyone at Carpaccio, from pasta, to pizza, seafood, and meat. I've never been blown away by the pasta, but it's definitely solid (I usually get the spaghetti with meatballs when I get pasta). Where it really shines, in my opinion, is seafood. The gamberoni al limone, is a great dish, with huge prawns in a cream sauce accompanied by potatoes and veggies. There are also good specials every day of the week. I often end up going to Carpaccio in large group settings, and I can't ever remember a time where there was bad service or a mix-up with any of the orders. Also worth trying the pizza.
