My wife and I ate at San Carlo on Saturday as a late Valentines treat and were not disappointed in the recommendations previously provided by friends and family. Our table was booked for 9pm and we were seated at the bar whilst our table was prepared, we ordered a couple of Aperol Spritz which were both fabulous, at the table... More

I've eaten here many times for many special occasions, atmosphere is always fabulous service is second to none, normally don't even have to pour your drink as the eagle eyed waiters are always tending to every whim before you even notice. My favourite Italian in liverpool.

Went for a special treat, the restaurant was very crowded and noisy. The tables are so close together it feels like you are dining with strangers. I had scallops to start which were delicious, if a small portion (just three). My partner had fish cakes which were quite bland and rubbery. We then had the surf and turf between us,... More

Came for a late anniversary dinner, took about 20 minutes to order any drinks, waitress with short hair couldn't give a damn to busy chatting up one of the managers! Manager with skin head very rude too bothered about the Everton u23 player who's made the bench once for them (in the other booth) to care about taking any orders,... More

Good service and good food. The restaurant appears to me as a popular place where people want to be seen. But that doesn't stop them from service decent food. Too bad the complimentary limoncello spoiled it a bit, the cheap stuff we got served was certainly not in line with the rest of the quality. I would recommend to make... More

Quality of food is good when it eventually arrives but all the theatrical italianate rushing around and attitudinising can get in the way of actually taking orders efficiciently and accurately - will try again sometime

Booked a table at 5pm on the 14th Feb with my boyfriend. We're seated immediately by a friendly waitress and given 2 menus. 1 standard and 1 specials. Another friendly waiter came and took our order and our mains arrived within roughly 10 minutes. My other half ordered tagliatelle bolognese which was great, I ordered spaghetti carbonara but came across... More

Wasnt greeted on arrival, was then left for ten minutes at the table with no drinks or menu. Had to keep asking if we could order our meal. Everything was an effort... The service was terrible to be polite. The food was good, not great and certainly not worth £70 per head. Then we were handed the bill, which included... More

We booked on line and were shown directly to the table, I had read reviews and they are correct tables are very close together. We ordered a bottle of wine, the wine lust us extensive and is very pricey though some are reasonable. We didn't opt for a starter. The main course arrived really quickly my friend had a mushroom...
