Carlo's Bistro is a truely western US experience. Unassuming exterior (glad I did not dress up), staged interior, and an overly attentive host don't set the right tone for the good food. The calamari appetizer was OK. A tad too much breading but the calamari...More

We went here at the last minute to celebrate our anniversary - we had been just too busy to make reservations anywhere - so, since it was still early (pre-5 pm), we went for the early bird. It was our first visit, though we have...More

It's a wonderful restaurant for a special occasion, and quiet conversation. Outstanding service, delicious food. One must be aware that it's going to be expensive, however. Right around $50 a person, without drinks. The menu is available online, so check it out before going. It...More
