“Best Pizza in Banbury and lovely staff”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We've had takeaway from here a few times and were really impressed with how tasty the pizza was. There's a great selection! After sitting in Pizza Express without getting served for 20 minutes we left and came to San Carlo. What a good idea that was!

The staff were accommodating, attentive and friendly. We got our drinks straight away. I had pasta this time and it was very hearty and tasty. The pasta portions are gigantic though, which is great, but you'll get very full!!! :D Also had a cheese starter which was huge but ate it all because it was so tasty. Oops! They could easily serve up smaller portions without lowering the price because the quality is so good. Prices are very reasonable. For 4 of us with three courses each and drinks we paid just over £100, so only £25-£30 each.

The decor is nice and the atmosphere is really welcoming and vibrant. I'm not sure the exterior of the building does the restaurant justice because we were so pleasantly surprised by how comfortable is was inside.

It's usually quite busy so clearly other people in Banbury have worked out how good the food is too! If you've been umming and aahhing about going in, I'd recommend giving it a try and sure you would enjoy it. Also, if you usually stick to chain restaurants, you're missing out on an awesome pizza.

Thanks for a lovely evening. We'll be back and actually already have been back haha.

“Fabulous restaurant!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Just been for an early tea with the kids to this wonderful restaurant. The food was hot, fresh, tasty, plentiful and reasonably priced!. The staff were welcoming especially the pizza chef who invited our two children over to watch him make the pizzas. They were very impressed and talked about it all the way home. Will definately be returning soon and would recommend it to anyone.

“Brilliant night at San Carlo”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We had a brilliant night at San Carlo. Excellent service, chef & food. We will definitely eat there again next time we are staying in Banbury. Thanks for making our friend’s birthday so memorable.

“Bring back the old people!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We have been here a few times in the past and the food was always amazing with great & friendly service and a good atmosphere but this was not the case this time. We had not heard it had changed hands but it was obvious. The food seemed re cooked, not a lot of flavour my husbands came before mine and he then had to ask for it to be warned up the atmosphere was awful and we felt like they just wanted us out.it's a Shame they kept the name as this is nothing like what it was and reflects badly on the amazing place it once was! Very disappointed and won't be back
