We all had a lovely meal with all our 3 steaks being cooked to perfection from medium rare to well done. The restaurant was a little cold in temperature and should have had the temperature warmer before guests arrived.

Visited Carlo's on strength of previous reviews. We were not disappointed. Small, cosy and informal restaurant. Food was great...starters (pate, spicy mushrooms, garlic bread) all good and made even more special by the complementary breads with smoked salmon butter - which was gorgeous - and...More

Carlo really knows his scallops, steaks, pasta, desserts and more. I have dined there several times and have thoroughly enjoyed the food every time. My ideal meal at Carlo's is queenie scallops for starter, but these are not always available. Then a fillet steak; these...More
