We went there on a sunny Thursday in December, we could sit outside and enjoy the nice atmosphere. We loved the food and wine, the professional staff and friendly service were extra plus! We would like to come back again next time.

The Caffe San Carlo is a great place to drink a hot chocolate with whipped cream when it’s cold outside! The décor is spectacular and the service was good. Recommended.

We came here for lunch as it had a table in the sun in the main square. Service was terribly slow and indifferent. Drinks took an age to arrive and the tramezzini were soggy and not so good.
