Description: In the early 1970's, Carlo and Felicia Schiattarella ventured from their small town in Naples, Italy & opened a quaint carryout pizzeria. Three decades later, The Schiattarella family is proudly introducing their 3rd full service restaurant in MD. Come join us for a delectable experience at Carlo's Italian Bistro and enjoy authentic, mouth watering Southern Italian cuisine. We take pride in serving top quality veal, chicken, seafood and shellfish specialties, along with salads, subs and sandwiches. With all of our menu items made fresh to order, we can gladly accommodate any dietary needs and preferences. Our casually elegant dining room is a perfect setting for a romantic dinner, friendly get-together or business luncheon, along with plenty of space for large parties & gatherings. Although we do not have a liquor license, we encourage our guests to bring their own alcoholic beverages to complete their dining experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed a tasty Italian dinner here Sunday evening. Pleasant atmosphere, attentive waiter. And Carlo even came to our table for a brief discussion because we were curious about the restaurant's Italian roots. (Small town outside of Naples -- unfortunately not the same side of Naples as our own Italian roots.) Our food was excellent. Veal so tender I cut it with my fork. Heck, the menu even says to return it to the kitchen if it isn't served that tender! A Rockfish special buried in crab lumps. A side dish of saute'd spinach was nicely spiced. Even the routine side of pasta that came with my veal was sauced nicely -- not the plain old marinara I expected, but a delicious one enhanced with herbs & mushrooms. Couldn't resist mopping our plates with the good Italian bread after each course. We'll definitely be back to try more of the menu.

The previous two reviews are of the old Treehouse Restaurant. This restaurant does not have a bar and opened in 2012. It is a BYOB. The restaurant has been completely remodeled. We have eaten here several times. From start to finish, we have been thoroughly pleased. The staff is attentive, the food beautifully prepared and presented and delivered in a lovely setting. Come and try Carlo’s, you won’t be disappointed…..Make a reservation on Open Table and you will never have to wait.
