We came across this small restaurant purely by chance walking around Orvieto. How lucky we were to eat here . The service was charming and the food excellent. Umbrichelli pasta with pork cheeks was perfectly cooked and to follow we had a cod dish which was well prepared but perhaps slightly too salt for our taste. But I would recommend... More

Nicely located, funny furnished, with great vibe comming from the owner and the family service team. The food was great, you can really feel their homemade and the ingredients are fresh and local. Shame the portions are bit off compared to the price. Still, nifty place worth visiting

We happened onto this pleasant place while shopping. The food on the occupied tables looked delicious. We tried it. The owner, his mother, they were all order full and after a week in Umbrio we call this the best of the best. The prices are fair. We cannot account for any meat dishes as we got antipasto so, pastas, dessert.... More

We ate at Da Carlo tonight and the general consensus was that it was so so. The bean soup was a hit... Very good. The chicken was OK, but didn't have a lot of tasty flavor and like most of the chicken we've had in Italy, has been running free on the range so long it was pretty much skin... More

This restaurant had been recommended and we visited for lunch on our first day in Orvieto. Very simple and effective decor and the pasta dishes were delicious although one person chose soup which was not at all appetising. Charming service and good value.

Walked by and saw that it was charming and full of people and tried to get a table. We didn't have a reservation so it didn't work. Came back a few nights later and the chef recognized us and got us a table. It was one of the best meals we had in two weeks in Italy authentic and so... More

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
