I would throughly recommend Carol's for the food, the service, lovely staff and atmosphere. We were just driving the scenic route in Guildford and decided to stop for lunch when we pulled into Carlo's Trattoria. We were greeted by a cheery waiter who paid us great attention throughout the meal, joking with us and spending time chatting (but not too... More

Always love a visit to Carlos and he never fails to disappoint, Having worked and traveled extensively in Italy this is the closest I can find that feels real and Authentic, I love the way Carlo describes the dishes and you can tell it's served and created with love. He never fails to deliver and great wine list.

I have eaten here 3 or 4 times recently and the food is lovely it can be a bit pricey but the food tastes authentic. One thing i would say is that when you first visit you get amazing customer service but after a few visits they pay less attention and you end up waiting long between courses. Also i... More

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
