At Carlo's you get wonderful
At Carlo's you get wonderful Italian food in a lovely and spacious atmosphere. The parking is easy and you can bring your own wine which is great. It's a great place to spend a very nice evening with friends.

Every meal is a winner!
We had seven people in our party at Carlo's and every single person raved about their dinners, so I think that says it all.

Came here for dinner in May
Came here for dinner in May with 16 girls and the service and atmosphere was excellent. Since then I have come back for a little romantic dinner with my fiancé and then a graduation lunch for 13 people. Everyone who works there from the owners Stephanie and Carlos, to the servers Lisa and Nashia (sorry for the incorrect spelling) have always given us such superb service that we are now planning to do hold a small wedding ceremony / brunch there on New Years Day 2014!
If your reading this review and haven't had the opportunity to visit here yet for lunch or dinner, make your reservations today! You will not be sorry!

Great Night Out
Our group of four professional gentlemen recently opted for an evening of cuisine and comraderie at Carlo's Italian Bistro. The evening was a complete delight to all. Excellent food and great service in a wonderful venue. We were so happy about our experience that we all will be returning with family and friends. Well done indeed, Carlo and crew!!

I gave my niece a bridal luncheon at Carlo's. The service was great and the food was excellent. The girls really enjoyed it. I brought my own champagne. .The atmosphere was lovely,relaxed. nice music playing in the background, table setting elegant. Not crowded. We were not rushed. I personally liked that it was not costly. I would differently hold another event there.

Food was absolutely great
Food was absolutely great with large portions. Enjoy the BYOB portion as it regulates the cost of dinner. Better than paying m$7.50 a glass or $30/ a bottle

A well kept secret in Timonium
This is a great Italian restaurant - new to us. Hope others find it, as it was pretty empty the evening we were there. The service was timely and friendly, the portions generous and a nice environment. Will be looking for reviews in the Sun and Style

Food was excellent, esp all of the veal dishes. Portions were reasonable size (not over-powering) Nice dessert selection. Staff friendly, prompt and courteous. Entertainment enjoyable, but lay-out of restuarant not good for wathcing live performances

Carlo's is AMAZING!!! Whenever
Carlo's is AMAZING!!! Whenever folks ask me where they should go for great Italian food or just a good restaurant, in general, I tell them to go to Carlo's!!! I love this place and come back every chance I can.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was wonderful...except the house salad. Get the Caesar instead. All of our entree's were delicious and our server was polite and attentive. It is a very nice addition to the neighborhood.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good Italian food and
Really good Italian food and a byob. Still can't understand why somebyob places charge a corkage fee when they don't really do anything but bring you a glass. I mean can'tit just be a small fee for the table?
7/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love the place
We are never disappointed with the food or the service. Moderately priced! We have recommended Carlos to all our friends
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The veal was as advertised---tender enough to cut with a fork. Portions were of a nice size--salad was very fresh. Our server, Tim, was pleasant, there when needed, and knowledgable. And there's no charge for corkage!!!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little dumpy on the outside, but once you get in, it's a surprisingly very pretty and nicely arranged restaurant. Food is decent/good - not spectacular, but a solid choice that I would visit again. Pasta was excellent.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Meal - Well Served
We were seated promptly and greeted by an up beat server who immediately opened the bottle of Reisling we brought with us - the restaurant does not have a liqour license but encourages BYOB. Fresh baked bread was immediately produced along with fresh, crisp salads and with an outstanding dressing. My companion had the Lasagne and I had the Veal Saltimbuoco. Both were excellent as were the Cannoli's and coffee for desert.
Carlos has a lot of competition in the area, but the food and the service make it a stand out in a crowded field,
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Relaxing and enjoyable
Very attentive service and food was plentiful, delicious and reasonable priced.
Really enjoy the the idea of BYOB..

Very nice place. Outstanding food and service. You can bring yours favorite bottle of wine. Prices is reasonable.

I Love Veal!
What fun to discover yet another "new" restaurant in our town! Does our town include Cockeysville? If so, hurry over to Carlos, where the menu, although predominantly Italian, still has a definite Continental feel. The Veal Marsala was one of the best I've eaten in a long time, and the prices, more than fair. Carlos, our host, was charming and eager to please.
I visited Carlos' twice in one week. That should say it all!

Dining with Frank Sinatra!
This was our 2nd visit - we continue to be impressed by the quality of the food, the wonderful wait staff and the overall ambiance. My teenage daughter raves about the Pasta with Meat Sauce ... and the Veal Sinatra was unbelievable. If you're lucky, you'll be there on Sinatra night - two musicians recapture the music/joy of Frank Sinatra, Patsy Kline and more. It's a special night out with amazing food. Oh - and Carlo's pesto is magical! Love the BYOB element - a winner!

Nice Italian restaurant in
Nice Italian restaurant in Baltimore County.....very good service always and warm welcome by Carlo. Love that it's BYOB.
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very good local Italian restaurant
Other than Pasta Plus in Laurel, Carlos's is the best Italian restaurant we've patronized since moving to the Baltimore region 4 1/2 years ago. It's now a "go-to" favorite for us. Also appreciate the BYOB which keeps the overall bill manageable. Food and service are great as is the ambience. Prices are very fair/reasonable. Because we have certain dietary restrictions, we have found Carlos's to be very accommodating in meeting them in a courteous and understanding manner.
Overall, a very positive experience.

A Fun Night with Frank
We'd never been here before; but when I saw they had a Frank Sinatra singer I couldn't resist. The ambiance was much nicer than I expected from the outside and the area surrounding it. Inside was elegant but didn't make you feel like you were out of place if you were dressed more casual. Lighting was romantic but not too dim. Our waiter was very knowledgeable & attentive without being annoying or hovering. The food was really tasty, cooked wonderfully, & had large portions. Their fresh cooked bread with olive oil & herb dipping bowl was fabulous. Prices a little higher than other restaurants in the area, but the ambiance, excellent service, & delicious food make it was a real bargain. We're definitely planning on coming back night.

Very good Italian option for
Very good Italian option for Baltimore County. Linguini and white clam sauce is awesome, as is the Chicken Francese. Note that it is BYOB.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been a customer of Carlo's for years. It started back at their Parkville location and I HAD to follow them when they moved! In fact, I would travel to the next state over if I had to! The food is authentic Italian -- quality ingredients, simply prepared and that equals DELICIOUS food! When people ask me to recommend a good Italian restaurant (or any restaurant), Carlo's is where I send them!

A hidden gem in Cockeysville! In a quiet tucked away location, you will find this delightful, family owned and operated restaurant. You are treated like family as soon as you arrive. Good quality ingredients prepared simply in classic Italian style. Our server, Lisa, was friendly, attentive and professional. BYOB is great. Thank you for taking such good care of our party of 10.

Carlo takes a personal interest in this entire operation. My shrimp with crab imperial was a perfect special. Our server, Lisa, was very attentive without being intrusive. Our meal was sent out in perfect time.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Sinatra was in the house!
Carlo’s did it again! Everything was delightful. Nadja, our waiter, is always at the top of his game – friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was perfect! “Sinatra Night” with Frank and Trish was terrific. They were amazing and just added the perfect touch to our dining experience. We enjoyed watching the dancing. Our dinners were delicious – steak cooked perfectly and the lasagna was beyond delicious. BYOB is always a plus for us. Thank you.

A Nice Dining Experience
Carlo's is a really nice place to go for an excellent Italian meal with terrific service and reasonably priced, good quality food. The waitstaff couldn't be more attentive and the food is reasonably priced, with really nice portion size. The place can get a bit loud at times, but that may have been because there was a large table of ladies next to us on the night we went. A bonus is the place is BYOB so you can save money by bringing your own adult beverage.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Although this restaurant has been open for more than a year and we can simply roll down the hill to get there, it was our first visit. We enjoyed it very much and would definitely look for an occasion to revisit.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
I absolutely love Carlos! The food is always consistently excellent, served in a timely fashion, and the waiters/waitresses are always accommodating. Can't say enough about this place! I have brought many new people to this restaurant and they said they would definitely come again.
3/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
We have had the pleasure of eating at Carlo’s many times and have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding as is the selection. Service is impeccable. BYOB is a definite plus. Thank you for a pleasant evening.
