Pleasant setting in Piazza where musicians play and people stroll by. Comfortable with very good pasta. We ate here twice on our recent visit. I had the clam chowder which was really small steamed clams. Not bad, but not what I expected. Location is probably better than the ok food.

Varied menu, good cooking, friendly staff, set in Piazza Bologni which is hidden away just off the Quattro Canti. A breathtakingly beautiful 16C square , with crumbling palazzi now being restored, built on a far older Greek and Roman settlement. Eat outside if the weather is good enough.

We had our "Thanksgiving" meal here while on vacation at the end of November. I ordered the steak with cream sauce and pistachios and it was wonderful. My husband ordered the same and was very pleased. My boys shared the Pasta Carbonara and finished almost all of it. We sat outside in the evening and enjoyed the atmosphere in the... More

The food here was good, but the staff seemed more interested in getting you seated and taking your order, once you did that you never saw them until you asked for the bill. Could be due to a larger city, but other places staff had a conversation, answered questions and gave the impression that they were pleased to serve you.... More

We stopped here and had the eggplant in tomato sauce with mozzarella and the wild boar with papperdelle. The wait staff was less than friendly and the food was adequate but nothing special.

The restaurant has one of the finest sites in the city; if only the service was half as good. Our food took at least half an hour to arrive - and the courses were out of sequence. Worse, the waiter claimed that there was currently no wine list and brought a bottle of red costing E 38. At our insistence,... More

The restaurant was close to our hotel in Piazza Bologni and other restaurants in the area seemed like tourist traps with avarage food. Which, I discovered later, were exactly like that. Carlo V is a charming place and it was nice to sit outside in the Piazza in a good weather. Our waiter was attentive and the wine he suggested... More

My boyfriend and I went for dinner as it looks the nicest restaurant in the piazza. Not long after we sat down we were approached by an Englishman who spent the entire night stood by our table chatting to us. He was friends with the owner, he said. The food and drinks were fine, and the waiting staff good, but... More
