We chose Carvosso's for a mid week bite, given many recommendations from friends. Having been in before during winter for a drink, we were keen to sit outside in the summer sunshine. After being shown to a table, it took half an hour to receive a menu despite trying to attract the numerous waiting staff's attention. It then took a further 20 mins to order- by which time we had decided that as we didnt want to spend all evening waiting around, we would just have a drink. When we tried to ask for the bill we still struggled to get anyone's attention despite there being more than enough waiting staff for the number of customers around. The venue is lovely, very well presented and the menu looks great- it's just a shame they don't seem to be able to serve their customers on an averagely busy midweek evening, let alone a full saturday night! It's a shame as I have heard great things, but I will not be returning here unless i have an entire day to wait to be served.

We had dinner here on a hot summer evening. Service was very attentive. Food was very good, good to share some of the nibbles/sharers plates. And food arrived very quickly. The courtyard is lovely (although a little packed) and perfect for a summer evening's dinner.

We have eaten here twice and on both occasions the food was consistently good. There is a nice courtyard space as well as seating inside. Food very good friendly efficient service. We plan to have our 50th Wedding Anniversary Party in the upstairs room. This is a good local restaurant
Well worth the visit.

Had dinner for 2 on a very warm Friday evening so any restaurant in London with an outside space will be popular to say the least. That said, a busy restaurant = good atmosphere which definately applies in this case. I had the sea bass which was excellent and my girlfriend had the chicken, also very good. However, what I enjoyed most was the fact that the staff smile and were all very helpful.

All in all, I would hghly recommend Carvosso's for couples evenings as well as for large groups of friends. It's a lovely looking place in a great part of town, the food is v good and the staff are superb. We are aleady talking abt going back.

Friday night in Chiswick - when almost everyone eats out - outside if the weather permits. London Underground had gone into melt down when the rails heated up to 30 degrees and we met up having made our way via buses, walking taxis from Central London. We got a table over looking a lovely little garden filled with tables. The waiting staff were attentive and happy. Everything we ordered arrived quickly. The food was good enough - for the price - very good. The garden lit up with fairy lights and fresh flowers hanging from baskets all thought the out side garden. There was a tiny splat of rain and the electronic roof released over us like a dome - great stuff. We carried on not being hurried along even though the place was packed. Great food, service and lovely setting.
