Three of us had a late lunch at da Carlo's on June 21st. Carlo's mother brought us our menus. She spoke not a word of English but was gracious and welcoming. Two of us ordered green salads and the third ordered beans. The salads were simple mixtures of the freshest greens possible; we split them three ways and added a... More

The resort we stayed at recommended this restaurant. It was not a let down. Great location with outdoor seating in an intimate alleyway. The bruschetta was amazing...the best we had in all of italy. The pasta was amazing and dessert was worth the calories. Carlo recommended a bottle of wine that his girlfriend makes and it was delicious. Definitely would... More

Well, we arrived at Orvieto around 7.30pm and began looking for a Trattoria for some evening nosh. We came across Trattoria da Carlo because it was well-signposted from the high street. And appeared to be more presentable than other "grotto's". We had eaten in Orvieto a couple of times before but where underwhelmed with the choices. Everything is a similar... More

Carlo may be gently muttering about his omnipresent yet very friendly mother, but you will by all means appreciate his simple yet tasty cuisine. It was our first dinner in Umbria, right in the centre of lovely Orvieto, and it is certainly on top of our list if/when we return in the neighbourhood.

We were early( for Italians) but we're tired and wanted to get to bed at a decent hour We just had pasta and the house wine. Both were wonderful... More

We saw a sign for da Carlo on a main street in Orvieto and wondered down the little lane to the trattoria. We were quickly greeted and offered a table outside. The other diners were a mix of locals and tourists. Our pasta dishes were tasty, and just about the right size for lunch. This seems to be a family... More

Trattoria da Carlo is on a little lane connecting Orvieto's main street - the Corso - with the Piazza del Popolo, a couple of blocks from the Via del Duomo. There's a sign pointing to it just off the Corso making it easier to find. We've eaten at Trattoria da Carlo twice - the first time - three years ago... More

I visited this restaurant last week with a group of friends on a visit to Orvieto. We eat outside which was atmospheric. We choose a nice wine which was to our liking. Three of us ordered a chicken dish from menu and one ordered lamb. The chicken had a delicious sauce on it but it was actually the back of... More

We (four of us) had a pleasant dinner here but I feel it was nothing special and a little expensive for the quality of the meal.
