Visited Carlini for the first time last night for a friend’s birthday party. The food was all lovely (special mention for the delicious Amaretto cake) and the staff were attentive and very welcoming. Everyone had a wonderful time and we’ll be back!

Called to book a table. Told chef about to catch a flight so could not accommodate. This was 8pm on a Friday night! Shifnal needs a better Italian!!

We ordered lunch and found the food to be bland and tasteless. Don’t waste your money! This place is trash.
