“My return”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

I`ve been back to " CARLO " with some good friends of mine and we had a fantastic evening ! Wine, starter, main course, dessert, everything was great. We booked a table for 7 people two days in advance and we arrived with 10 people, the staff managed to place us on nice outside table even the restaurant was fully booked ! In this case we had to wait a bit long for the food but what we got was really good. As we all travel to thailand a lot, we can give the full points to CARLO himself, we all know to manage the thai people is not easy but CARLO is doing it very well. We highly can recommend this place in hua hin !!!

“Must have had an off day”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Considering the very good reviews this place gets I'm surprised at my experience at this restaurant.

It certainly looks the part so had high hopes when we went in. Staff were a bit slow on taking our order, but they had a big party (well, eight people) in next to us and figured they were taking their time ordering and that was slowing things down.

Starter came, had the bruschetta and it was excellent, others in my party had Caesar salad which was OK, nothing special but acceptable.

And then we waited for our mains. For nearly two hours. None of the waitresses even came over to get fresh drink orders. We were ignored until we eventually bit the bullet, got up and asked for service - never a good thing in a restaurant.

When the mains came, again nothing special. I'm no chef - far from it - but I could literally have cooked the various dishes to the standard that we received. Pasta wasn't cooked properly, was still hard (yes, I know it should be "firm". This was crunchy). And they didn't have pizza. Novel one for an Italian restaurant where pizza makes up a major part of the menu.

All in all, very disappointing. As I say in the title maybe they were having an off-day. Trouble is with so many good restaurants in Hua Hin I'm unlikely to give them a second chance.

“Don't waste your time waiting for regular food here! Go next door”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

I went to this restaurant two times during a holiday in Hua Hin. First visit was not more than ok!. The food and pricing was ok, but we waited for more than an hour for our food!. In the end they charged too much and we had to get the bill changed!.

Some days later we visited the restaurant again. Just before departing to the airport!. We asked if it was possible to get our food in time to leave for our transportation! The waiter agreed!. We ordered drinks and was ready to order food!. The waiter showed up after 10 minutes hiding, to tell us that the chef was not yet arrived and he would arrive Fter another 30 minutes. So we had to leave without getting any food!.

We went to the restaurant next door!. La Palliotte!. Got a table even though everything was reserved and agreed to leave in time to keep the reservations!. Got fantastic food straight away!.

So.. Go to the restaurant next door!!

Have a nice holiday

“Italien place worth visiting.”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Nice, clean with a good atmosphere. Friendly and competend staff. The owner very present, taking care of everything. A widew variety on the menu. Not just pizzas.
I tried the pork medallion with lemon-sauce.Very good!
Keep away from the fries. They are not homemade as announced, and highly overpriced.

“Lekker Italiaans in hua hin”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

After la grappa the second best Italian restaurant in Hua hin.
We had pumpkin soup and salad caprse as a starter our main course was chicken Milanese of course with French fries and green pepper sauce.
The red wine was excellent .
La grappa is more mature but Carlo is almost there. Delicious .
