“Great food and great entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Okay, when I saw an appetizer called grandmother's tummy, I had to try it! Pumpkin fried and sprinkled with sugar - what's not to like? I would have loved it as a dessert too.
The ravioli was very very delicate and fresh.
Carli, who used to play keyboards for the Beach Boys, is a wonderful Jazz musician. He played piano and the night we went he was accompanied by a bassist.
It's a great date place, and good for friends, but keep in mind it is not polite to talk during the performance.

“Go in for a drink and you'll end up staying there the whole night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

The location is great with inside and outside seating. The staff is very friendly. The place is romantic; great for couples or groups looking to have a wonderful evening with great food and music. We went early and the musicians had not arrived yet. One of our fellow diners is a great pianist and they allowed him to play for a while. Everybody had a great time. Fills up with both locals and tourists.

“Great Atmosphere, Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

Carli's had a nice, relaxed vibe in a fairly upscale setting. The food was great too--we had steak and risotto entrees. There are some Spanish items on the menu, but I'd say this is a place to eat when you want more typical American cuisine. There isn't a lot of space inside, but outdoor dining is also available. This place would definitely work for a romantic night out.

“Small, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

It was a nice place to go because the atmosphere was nice, we had a piano player but it wasn't Carli. We had the special which had ma weird name like grannie stomachs, which was very good, but my risotto lacked enough steak and was only so-so.
