I really did like how the restaurant looked and maybe i was expecting too much from the food. The bread was amazing! As well as some entrees. Sadly the main course was a disappointment. The good news is that the deserts were so so good.

The smoked salmon, and carpaccio of beef were superb. We were six for lunch, it is pricey but the food is worth the price. However, I asked the waiter for my veal chop to be rare, he said NO. We agreed after nearly a confrontation on Medium - it came more than well done. The waiter was disagreeable, and for that reason he ruined what could have been a great business lunch.

In a sea of new openings and proposals in the area (some are sad and plain implants from overseas) I had the opportunity to visit one of the two Carolo restaurants in Mexico City in Plaza Carso. The decor is impeccable and very tasty without being over the top (looking exactly as promised in their website). Service is very attentive and professional, no complaints whatsoever. Food is solid and although their choice of ingredients is above average for what one normally witnesses in comparable restaurants, their seasoning is still off the mark in some of their dishes. Soups need to be more hearty and with more character, and salads have that homey flavour that one can replicate at home... Having said that, risottos were simply excellent. All of this accompanied by a good choice of lounge music.
