“Great food & service”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 via mobile

Went here for an impromptu lunch today.

The food was amazing, the best Calzone either me or my partner has ever had and the staff were very friendly and attentive.

Definitely will be going back!

“Great atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

We popped in for a romantic meal on a Sunday of a bank holiday weekend. There was a great buzzing atmosphere. Service was great and the food brilliant. We had calzone and pizza.

“Cheap ingredients and not much atmosphere”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Visited on a Friday night and had no problem getting a table.
We chose a bottle of Valpolicella, which strangely was poured straight into our glasses without us being allowed to taste it first. We have a sneaky suspicion that it may not have been what it said on the label as it tasted a bit fizzy!
I had deep fried mozzarella for starter which clearly came out of the freezer.
For main course my husband had risotto, the rice was still quite hard and it was watery. I had the calzone, which was enormous and looked fab but was filled with cheap wafer-thin ham and thick sliced mushrooms which were still raw.
Service wasn't great. Our mains were brought out before our starters had been cleared, took ages to get the bill.
Didn't bother with a dessert. Won't be back!

“Stick to the pizza”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

We were warmly welcomed by the staff to San Carlo and the restaurant had a great atmosphere because most of the tables were booked.

My husband was pleased with his pizza, which looked and tasted delicious. Our starters were nothing special: avocado with prawns which were swimming in thouosand-island dressing. I was unimpressed with my paella - too much turmeric and not enough saffron so it tasted more like a Indian biryani.

We will return - but next time we will stick with the pizzas.
