Carlo's proved a worth venue for my son's 50th birthday treat. Our reception and pre dinner drinks were attended to with friendly attentiveness. The starters were delicious and generously portioned.

A good Italian menu, well prepared in up-market surroundings but easy to spend a lot of money and hard to see how the prices are justified.

Have been here a couple of times recently and had fantastic food. The restaurant is beautifully furnished with white damask table cloths and napkins with sparkling glasses and cutlery. Great choice of food all beautifully cooked and presented by very obliging and friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Booked by a friend. We were hoping for Xmas Italian lunch but it was a set menu with many English dishes. Service was fine and busy session. 4 adults and 3 children, they charged us for 6 people, despite the children all under 12 years.

Office Christmas lunches are notoriously tricky. I have just attended one at Carlo's and what a revelation. The food was delicious and the staff attentive but not overbearing. Well done. I have no idea about value for money as the company paid-thanks.
