Staff are fantastic, food is unbelievable. Eat here and be prepared to book. You have to go to this place, it's not a place you can go in just passing. I can't wait for my next dining experience.

Been here quite a lot now. Don't tend to plan but when there is a spare evening we may well pop across to Carlos. We eat out a lot and it is nice to go somewhere that you know you are going to have a relaxed evening, good food, good wine and good service. If it is a Friday or... More

Hadn't visited for a few years as a bit out of the way, but so glad we did. The food is just as fabulous as we remembered! We ate from the Specialis menu and had 2 different ravioili for starters; such a treat to have home-made ravioli instead of the ones at most Italian places. Afterwards, as my husband had... More

Having checked in at the hotel next door and found the place not fit for eating we went to Carlo's by chance. Staff were good and for a Monday night is was popular. The specials board was fantastic and I would suggest everyone forget the menu and just go with the specials. I had spinach and ricotta ravioli with halibut... More

Yet another wonderful meal out with friends at this lovely restaurant. It is always full but that never affects the quality of the food or speed of service which is the height of friendly professionalism from this Italian family. So many pubs/restaurants have opened up recently in and around Guildford, quite a number with appalling, slow, disinterested service. They should... More

Ive eaten here a number of times, and the food is always incredible, the staff are so welcoming, and friendly, and have a sense of humor too. Foodwise, every dish ive had has been amazing, from their freshly made Raviolis, Veal Milanese, Mozzarella in Corroza, anything on the specials board is worth trying too, I rate this as Guildfords number...
