Its amazing what new staff and new chefs can do to improve things. The new venue is bright and comfortable. The food and service much improved.

“Good food, service a little slow at times”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Good welcome and prompt to take our order, but a long wait for our starters. This included two tasty dishes but was accompanied by disappointing bread. The main courses, which were good but not exceptional, then arrived soon after we had finished the starters. The desserts were very good, although my son commented that his lemon sorbet could have been a bit bigger.

“No weaknesses”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

We were staying in the vicinity for a couple of days. Unfortunately Carletto's wasn't open the first evening we were there, and we had a poor meal somewhere else. The next morning we checked Carletto's website and made an online booking for 4 people for 1800. Shortly after I had a voicemail from the restaurant confirming the booking. We arrived, two adults and two young children, and were given a choice of tables. The young waiter was very helpful and very good with the children. His recommendations were also fantastic and helped narrow down the choice of quite an extensive menu. Both adults had gazpacho as a starter, and we both agreed it was the best we had tasted (and one of us has a Spanish mother). The main courses and desserts were as good. The children ate everything put in front of them. Everything was clean. Everything was served timely (not too slow, not too quick). We'll definitely be back.
