The location of Carlo's is in Alston. It is a melting pot of people and the restaurants in this strip are a reflection of the people. In the middle of it all , in the smallest room down there is this Italian gem. It is just like the north end or Federal Hill in RI. The Food - GREAT , I have been 8 times and had a different dish every time. Most of the time I know what I want but my mind is changed when I hear the specials. This is classic plates and good size portions.
Staff is the best in town.
Best things so far:
- calamari - any where us order it as an app or as part of a dinner , always fresh and never tough
- dinner salad - one house salad is more then enough for 2 people (basic but done righ
- Linguine con Frutti di Mare, Verdicchio, Chicken Parm, Eggplant parm, Thick Cut Pork chop.
these are all thing I love.
but like I said - LISTEN to the specials.
Parking is tough , small parties are better but they will take a reservation for 6+.
