we couldn't decide on a restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday, so we strolled towards the Christmas Market; she saw San Carlo, decided it's what she fancied; after aperos, we began, she with big shrimp om artichoke purée, me with grilled wild mushrooms, both delicious; she had her favourite Italian main dish, fegata veneziana, cooked perfectly, while I had pasta...

We had just checked into our apartment ( Duschel Apartment City Center) and they recommended San Carlo to us. We were not disappointed. It was close to our apartment and just down from the Opera and the main street to St. Stephens. As you walk in, you can see right into the kitchen and say hello to the chef and... More

We found this restaurant in the middle of the city. We started with a soup and ended with a lovely served tiramisu. The homemade paste are to be noticed as well! We felt like we travelled all the way to Italy, the service, the people, the passion everything felt italian.

We arrived at the restaurant at 5:40pm and told the waitress that we had to be at the Opera house by 6:45pm for the Ballet. The food was brought out in perfect timing to walk across the street and arrive in a good amount of time to check coats and find our seats. Not only was the sea bass prepared... More

We eating our main course when it became clear a group of regular customers had arrived and wanted a table. Tables were rearranged and butted up to our own! Sadly we hadn't been invited to the party but we're being told in no uncertain terms our patronage was no longer required. Incredibly rude. Would not recommend.

The food is amazing with a great variety for everyone. The staff were friendly and informative regarding the food etc. The service was excellent too. We sat outside every time we ate which was five out of seven nights, as it was warm weather and it's nice to people watch. Outside is surrounded with hedge to give you privacy when... More

Great and fantastic Italian food, very much recommended. The service is 5 stars, and the place is quiet and nice. We tried the broccoli soup, the garlic pasta, and the penne Arabiata, all were cooked with top ingredients and high taste. We loved it.

I had read previous reviews of this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. My daughter had the filet steak and I had fish. Prompt, courteous service and lovely food. Worth a visit.

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
