We came upon this by chance when the restaurant we had planned on eating at looked a bit too fancy and we wanted something lighter. There wasn't a table available immediately but we were told to come back in half an hour. There was a bar next door so we said we would go and have a drink in there... More

A nice Italian restaurant in Brugges. Not fine dining, but good value for money. They have a nice wine selection. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. Ideal for families but it was also nice for the two of us.

Carlito's is about a block from our apartment and a couple blocks from the markt so it is convenient as well as good. We shared a salad which was huge and a pizza which was excellent. This is a great place to go when you are in Bruges and want true Italian food for a very fair price. We have... More

My wife and I wanted a break from two days of Flemish food and wanted something a little more familiar and Carlito's exceeded expectations. We're very particular about a pizza, not quite pizza snobs, but we know a good one when we see one. These were fantastico. Great beer of course. The owner and his staff were great. Full of... More

We had a very large group of 17 so we knew it would be nearly impossible to find a place to eat w/o reservations. We were fortunate to read about Carlitos from Rick Steves guidebook, called to see if they could seat us right away, and they were able to put together tables to make it happen in 2 groups.... More

A real home town restaurant with very friendly service with a smile. We ordered spaghetti and lasagne. the pasta was fantastic and we were told it was home made. The lasagne noodles were so thin and light - it was the best I have ever had. Highly recommended and not too expensive.

This restaurant had been recommended by our hotel but we were unable to get a table, so booked for the following night. Big mistake. I see other visitors have enjoyed their experience, we did not. Despite booking us in for the "wrong" night we were given a table, but not with good grace, the fault we were assured was "ours".... More
