We had passed Carlo's many times, meaning to sample it one day. Our first visit there was lunch last Sunday. It was an excellent experience from beginning to end : the staff were friendly and efficient ( without the endless 'Is everything OK?' interruptions which mar so many meals these days) ; the menu was varied ; the food was...

Carlo's lunch menu is unbeatable. We've eaten here several times now and each time the food has been delicious. The lunch menu is authentic and varied, with a good choice. No compromise on quality. Nice wine list. Friendly and professional service. Pleasant uncrowded ambience. Excellent value. The a la carte menu for dinner looks very good, too, and not too... More

We had lunch recently at Carlo's as it had been highly recommended on many occasions by friends in Cranleigh where we live. When I booked I was told the kitchen would be closed at 2pm on the dot so we raced over. We were greeted by a nice waiter and ordered our food. The "atlantic prawns with salad and dressing"... More

The location is in a very nice green area away from the centre of Guildford. Food is not bad, we got some fish sea food that was not all fresh. Price is a bit overpriced for what you get, in Italy it would be an Average italian restaurant.

This was my husband & I's first visit with friends where the food was good & we were excited to visit due to good reviews. However it was really disappointing at the end when we tried to split the bill between us & thought the total appeared exceptionally high. Unlike us, we then decided to ask for the menu to... More

We moved to Cobham 5 years ago and heard many good things about Carlo's Trattoria but never got around to eating there. Passing it on the way back from Shere last week, we decided to book and have dinner there and wow, the food was fantastic! It has a lovely atmosphere, great service and we will definitely return...as often as... More

I've lived in or near Guildford for 38 years and am now moving away. Why now do I discover Carlo's? We ate there last night, two couples, and had an amazing evening. From our welcome as we walked in we were treated superbly. The service throughout was attentive and of a very high standard. I ate frutti di pesca, veal... More

Having recently moved to the area we decided to try this for dinner and were not disappointed. The food was lovely, particularly the truffle taglioni and the fillet steak tagliatelle. Both full of flavour and as I struggled to choose out of both mains the waiter kindly suggested that we could have half and half of our 2 chosen mains... More
