“Authentic Italian food.”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Within walking distance of a friends house. So pop in frequently.Carlo is a very friendly person nothing to much trouble. The food is lovely good size potions. The puddings are handmade and are to kill for.And if eaten to often may do that very calorific and creamy.
Would recommend if not wanting posh.

“Best pizza in town!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Lovely pizza, made with fresh dough. Easily the best pizza in town. Carlo is certainly a friendly chap, and would clearly go out of his way to accommodate your dietary needs. Would certainly recommend.

“Glad I popped in”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

After driving and walking past this place for the last few years I decided to pop in.
Ordered a Siciliana pizza. Wow.
Authentic flavours and fresh ingredients and at a reasonable price.
Carlo is chatty and a bit of a character.
I am looking forward to ordering some pasta or a risotto next time as they smelt lovely when I walked in to collect my order.
I am sure people will be queuing out if the door after they visit this place and get hooked like I have.
Definite value for money, and great flavour, and filling.
Thank you Carlo

“Home from home”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Eating at Carlo's is like visiting his kitchen at home, and we visit at least once a week. This is not your posh restaurant. So don't expect ambience and elegant decor. This is a homely pizza and pasta place.

The food is plentiful and very reasonably priced. Carlo is about as wide as he is tall, and you know how the saying goes: never trust a skinny cook.

Carlo loves to chat with his customers and nothing is too much trouble. Gluten intolerant? Give him advance notice and he'll make you some gluten free pasta. Don't like mushrooms? He'll leave them out.

“Hidden treasure!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Just discovered this wonderful restaurant. Fantastic Italian food at really great prices and Carlo is the icing on the cake - he's very entertaining. The food is cooked fresh from scratch and menu items can be altered to suit tastes. My pizza-loving daughter proclaimed her pizza to be the best she'd ever had. There are just a few tables (more outside) so it's best to book. Everything is spotless. As a family we've decided we don't want to eat anywhere else locally, it's that good.
