Visiting Ashbourne for a wedding we were depressed by the apparent lack of decent restaurants in the evening. We tried Da Carlo at random and were pleasantly surprised. Original and well though out menu with an interesting special board. I had venison steak, really good and a first for me in an Italian restaurant. House red was superb and cheap. Would come again.

Highs: Mussels Starter - beautifully seasoned in wine and cream.
Service - friendly and attentive
Seafood pasta

Lows : Meatball pasta - stodgy and rather bland.

Enjoyable ambiance in a nicely decorated restaurant. Owner clearly passionate.

Would return.

The restaurant is a typical Italian, good atmosphere and great food. Catered for my Gluten intolerance, clearly marked on the menu but waiter happy to assist. Would revisit if in the area again.

The best Italian food I have tasted outside of Italy. The staff were friendly and courteous and extremely efficient. A wonderful piece of Italy in Derbyshire!!
