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

Recommended by our hotel and so glad we tried it. Great choice off the menu and very reasonably priced. Staff very helpful and friendly. Lovely setting in a small plaza off the Main Street. Great place to people watch. Would definitely recommend this place for lunch or evening meal.

It looks the best in the Piazza and may be the busiest. The food is at the price ok but not outstanding. Both places may be slow, but such is Italy in service. See my review of the other.

Very lovely place and affordable. I had risotto with shrimps and it was very good. Prawns grilled also very tasty. But best of all was old gentleman (supposedly owner :) walking around pleasing people, spoiling with glass of wine. Creates very warm atmosphere, takes care of place and you feel like you R his guest at home :) Very sweet... More
