We ended up at Da Carlo by following a wonderful smell of Italian pizza. Our noses have never let us down, and no disappointments this time either. Wine, beer, salat and two pizza´s for €35 is a good price. And the tastes took us back to Italy. Grazie, and we'll be back!

Went there a couple of times, and although a bit pricey it is absolutely worth it! Excellent food and service, very helpful and friendly staff that is always ready to help you! Very romantic and cozy atmosphere fitted for couples and families! They offer gluten free pasta, however they are not well informed of dietary allergies.

Great staff, friendly & helpful but the restaurant is cramped and the food very average. I guess part of the problem is the menu is huge so the kitchen won't get much practice on some dishes. But reasonable prices and, well, nice people. Tip: avoid the tables at the back.... too near the toilrts!

Every day, on my way from work to home, I walk past this restaurant. It is quote tempting to step in and pick up the meal that I ordered with my cell phone while walking. Good quality, reasonable prices, lovely taste and close enough to home to get there with a hot meal!

Unexpected visit. Just walked in with a friend, very kind waiters offered a table right away. A bit cold, but could be solved with a scarf. Perfect for a quick dinner. Good pizza and a lovely surprise: we got offered a delicious piece of tiramisu with our cup of coffee. :)

The place was quite full on a Sunday evening but the staff made an effort to find us a good table. From there only pleasant surprises: A carafe of water, good wine, delicious antipasti, the best veal in town and tasty ravioli. Generous portions. Friendly and unhurried service. A pleasure to dine there.

Passing Groningen, I visited the city for old times sake and went for dinner. Looking for an Italian restaurant, I ended up at Da Carlo. Even though a Monday night, the place was busy. With some help from the waiter, I got a nice table nevertheless. I ordered a starter and a pizza. Food was OK, but nothing exceptional. Service... More

If you are looking for good value Italian food in Groningen we can certainly recommend Da Carlo. Good, tasty food and excellent service. As it usually works with good value restaurants it can be difficult to get a table, we were lucky enough to have the last free table, in th e very back of the restaurant. Unfortunately we noticed...
