We came here to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary and we flew in from Chicago for the weekend. Due to traffic we were running a bit late for our reservation. They were beyond accommodating. The food was amazing and the service was on point. We will definitely be making this a staple restaurant when we come back to NY!
Fantastic break from the usual Italian dining in North America. Outstanding appetizers, entrees, and desserts. With the extensive selection of wine, beer, and the fully-stocked bar, no meal will be regrettable.
Great place and the staff is amazing. Food is authentic from Piemonte as my friend akwoledged.
The food is pleasant enough but nothing Earth shattering. Good wine list.
The restaurant was very attractive and comfortable. Nice location right in Soho New York. The staff was friendly and helpful explaining the menu and the specials. The food was amazing!! Probably the best meal I had while in New York.
Consistently excellent food. Unique wine list. This restaurant is going to catch on and be much more difficult to get into.
Perfetto! The food, the beautiful menu (there’s even a truffle menu), the food presentation, the chef, the portions, the look of the place, the lighting, the host, the waiters, the service in general, the wine list, the experience. Spend 2-1/2 hours with someone you enjoy in the company of nice people. Tutti Perfetti! Grazie.
Nice little place with an interesting menu. Enjoyed some of the fish dishes and dessert was excellent.
Italian hospitality in greenwich village. Greeted warmly. Lots of buona sera's. Seated a bit to close to the next table, but at least the neighbors were nice. The eggplant Parmesan app was very tasty with lots of sauce to dump the bread in. The veal Milanese was large, but a bit overcooked. Nice atmosphere.
Excellent service and food to match. Everything very authentic. We also were treated especially attentively by the staff and owner (I had indicated it was my dad's birthday). A real treat and my dad was thrilled with his birthday dinner. We will return!
Good food but pretty noisy. Difficult to hear each other on date night but other than that it was a good experience.
Very nice place. I had the tagliatelle, it was delicious. My friends enjoyed their meals as well. If you go, don't let them seat you in the back corner by the bar. As the restaurant became more crowded, we were trapped by people drinking at the bar who were standing right in back of our chairs. We didn't stay long because it kind of freaked us out!
We don't understand the good reviews. It's cute and quiet and cozy, but the service wasn't great and the food was truly just not good. The best of the meal was the eggplant parmesan as an app. We were disappointed by the meat and pasta. I felt guilty having chosen the restaurant for a friend who was in from out of town.
J-U-S-T ❤️ A-M-A-Z-I-N-G
Had dinner with family and friends- adorable and lively atmosphere. We all had fish and were not disappointed. Will return!
Only comment would be that the service was attentive but sloppy, messing up sparking and still water multiple times and were arguing among one another. All around very positive experience
It was a rainy Saturday evening that my husband, my adult son and I stepped into San Carlo. I had made reservations sitting in Boca Raton, FL. Even though I made a few requests (change of seating, sent back my drink) the owner and servers were more than accommodating. The food was divine, pasta, ravioli, and beef cheeks, fresh veggies were done to perfection. Restaurant is smaller than I expected but large in heart! We wish you great success!
Awesome authentic Italian restaurant. When you hear employees speaking Italian in the restaurant and real Italians dining at the restaurant, you know that you are in for a great meal. The food was awesome. I had a fresh pasta with fresh shaved truffles on it which made me feel like I was eating in Italy. A little pricey but it is worth it for a special night out.
Walking into a restaurant where you know you are a stranger yet the door magically transforms you into a regular is the kind of magic that we walways look for. Service needless to say was phenomenal; behind the smiles when you are greeted you can feel the authenticity of the place making you feel instantly welcomed. The lighting and ambiance was perfect such that when you sit down you feel at ease and in peace prepared to enjoy a meal that does evoke home made italian food. Eloquently served and certainly the size of the restaurant is part of the magic.
Great food,great wine, and the service was very good. The owner Moreno was class. I will definitely be back
Authentic Italian food. It's delicious, you feel like you are in Italy. Welcoming service and friendly staff. Great wine choices. Some of the tables are very close together but that adds to the atmosphere.
Everything we ordered was very good, beet salad, octopus, homemade pasta with mushrooms, the steak and branzino. the dessert was very delicate and yummy - tiramisu, flan and a hazel nut dessert (can't remember the name)
My experience at San Carlo was fantastic once again!!! I have only been a few times, but the staff immediately remembered me and warmly welcomed me back in. Moreno, who was at the front and greeted us, even remembered my little cousin who is 8 years old. She felt so special. The food was delicate but not pretentious and absolutely delicious. I recommend San Carlo to anyone who wants the ambiance of an upscale New-York hotspot but the comfort and ease of your neighborhood go to place, with incredible food-it’s my new favorite!
Decent. Had the restaurant week menu. Small portions. Definitely avoid the gnocchi. Waiter was super nice, but service was slow (they only had one waiter). Also, tables are super crammed together, so not the most romantic experience.
I come here alone and I decided to sit at the bar. Bartender was very welcoming made me feel like I was in Italy. I tried the restaurant week menu $42 for 3 courses and everything I had was tasty, rich in flavor and well presented. The beet salad was kind of Van Gogh on the plate with the different types of beet, well balanced with garlic drops and green apple. After that I had my favorite pasta here, the homemade Agnolotti, the best of the best
To finish, a chocolate flan with amaretto and caramel from Piedmont called Bonet, amazing!
I will be back as usual and bring more friends who are not familiar with this authentic gem yet!
Good food, friendly but inattentive service.
Very authentic. Everyone here speaks Italian and it makes me feel like being in Italy again.
Whenever I would like to feel "Italia", I come here. E tutto buono e perfetto!
Better than I expected. The waiters are all nice and knowledgeable. There is live jazz on Sunday as well. The food is pretty decent. The only issue is we wait for a long time for check, which probably is not a bad thing as we just enjoyed the music
We went there with our kids (4 people) for a birthday party. Place is very small and was pretty packed. I think that's normal for a Saturday evening. However the noise level was quit high. Food quality is amazing and overall it was very delicious. There staff was friendly, but it looked to me like they were not so skilled. They had 4 waiters for that small place, but they were pretty stressed. Overall it was a nice evening and the restaurant is worth a recommendation.
Second time there. Autentic Piemontese dishes. The food is very very good and the service is very attentive. I will go back for sure.
Great restaurant, very 'lively' and great food. A must go to !
snug, active but quiet enough for a normal voice level conversation, excellent menu with lots of options for any appetite. service episodic, but attentive when not preoccupied with other things. go there for the food, which once ordered arrives in a timely fashion, well-presented and delicious. worth a return.
We had bar reservations but those seats were occupied by friends of the restaurant so they sat us at a table. Tiny portions for restaurant week menu. We left hungry after 180$ dinner for 2 without wine.
Food is uber good, the guys are amazing and the ambient is so cool
Amazing!! Authentic Italian!! One of the very best meals ever!!
We had a wonderful experience here. The food is amazing, true Piedmontese cuisine.
Wonderful food and friendly efficient service. Not your standard Northern Italian.
don’t hesitate to try San Carlo .. great restaurant in the heart of downtown Manhattan .. 100% authentic Italian food .. and the service was perfect.
Quiet and undiscovered. Excellent food and staff . Feels like home.
The restaurant was excellent in every way. To start the sommelier was knowledgeable and chose us a wonderful wine that was reasonably priced. The staff were attentive and helpful and the food was fabulous. Definitely going back.
Food is very good and authentic! Went there on New Year’s Eve and despite the “particular night” everything was perfect. Fast and attentive service . I would definitely recommend!
