While the food was outstanding, it was the drinks that we can't stop talking about! The Passion Cosmopolitan was out of the world. The Sangria was amazing. The service was wonderful. Loved it!

We are visiting from Greenville, SC and we chose Carli's for dinner due to the live music and menu. We sat at the bar and Fausto was excellent from start to finish. His awesome personality made our experience great! The food was outstanding as well. Thanks Fausto for the amazing dinner! Hasta luego.

We dropped in after a sunset sailboat tour for a light dinner as we had appetizers on the boat. We ordered half orders of the risotto. Risotto was excellent but the half order is tiny. 1/4 cup of rice with 2 tiny pieces of beef. Get the full order. We asked for a wine list and the waitress just listed... More
