To sum this place up in one world.....well I couldn't. Fantastic, awesome and ready to pop. I have been to Carlos a few times over this week. Once for breakfast and once for some traditional pasta. Firstly the breakfast is the best around and cooked fresh so ring and order if your in a rush. None of this pre cooked breakfast. very very nice. Because the breakfast was so nice I had to try the pasta the following night so had a carbonara which is the best I've ever had. Better then local Italian restaurants and could taste how fresh it was. the price is brilliant and I couldn't moan about one thing. Don't eat all day if you fancy a meal here as you won't fit it all in. Thanks Carlo and Roberto!!!

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.

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.

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

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.
