We have wanted to try San Carlo since it opened and are so pleased we finally made it there. The bustling atmosphere, with waiters calling out to each other in Italian, is so much like a trattoria in Italy that just that would be worth a visit. But there is much more as the food is outstanding! We especially like the bread with anchovies starter.

This was our first visit to San Carlo after seeing several great reviews about the resturant. Upon our arrival we were seated immediately, the staff was friendly, and the waiter explained the menu and the great selection of wines in detail. Our food came out hot and it was delicious. The crowd was lively . We had a great experience and would certainly visit and recommend the resturant.

Absolutely loved everything about this restaurant!! Staff was extremely personable and attentive. The sommelier helped us pick wine for each entree and was spot on every time. Food was amazing! Everything was flavorful and plentiful from appetizer to dessert! Definitely trying everything on the menu at some point. The restaurant was trendy, a mix between casual with a dressy vibe which made it suitable for a nice romantic date or even a regular night out. The owner and his girlfriend were so hospitable! They went out of their way to make sure our experience was unforgettable. Such nice nice people and a pleasure to talk to. Can’t wait to go back!! Definitely recommending this restaurant to everyone I know! 5 stars hands down!

I was not crazy about the cantaloupe soup. The ravioli was tough not al dente - I mean tough. The duck sausage was underwhelming. Definitely a disappointment. The service was friendly and acceptable but for a night out, we would have chosen something different.

The maitre 'd met us with a warm welcome and we were seated immediately. It was crowded and noisy, but it was Friday night, too, so that wasn't a surprise. The service was a little slow, but the waiter was attentive. The food was excellent, as was the wine. However, the mood for the evening was severely dampened when the maitre d', who had been so warm in welcoming us, asked us bruskly to give up the table as another group was waiting. We had not lingered (we were there less than two hours and service was a little slow) and we were only just finishing our after dinner drinks. He didn't offer us an outdoor table (the outside was free by then - it was almost 10 pm) and a drink or coffee, just requested us to move on. A disappointing end to what had been a nice evening.

Great summer brunch - jazz spot.
Our food was delicious. The wine choices good.
The service was authentic and attentive. The restaurant is not huge, so maybe only space for one large group.
Our experience was in the summer with the doors open which was lovely on a warm day. The temp in the restaurant was just right, but also nice to have the flow of fresh air.

I took my mom here for lunch the other day for Restaurant Week and it was great! The food was fresh, and the service was impeccable. Andrei was our server and made very helpful recommendations for food selection. They seem to specialize in having fresh truffle, which was a nice treat to my beef tartare. I had the branzino for lunch which was perfect; the skin was crisp and tasted flavorful and light. Really nice place for catching up with a friend, or a date, but definitely casual enough to just have a nice dinner or people watch. I would definitely come back! Also, as a note specific to restaurant week: sometimes I am disappointed at the options and portions as part of the prix fixe menu, but this was not the case here. I thought everything was a good sized portion!

Good food and service with a good sommelier (Spanish but very knowledgeable regarding Italian wines) but perhaps a bit pricey for what was provided given that a Cotolette Milanese /Wiener Schnitzel was an eye watering $42 each !!!

Really good food. Service was excellent. Owner and wait staff very attentive.

They had a truffle special running and maybe it was just me but they didn't have a ton of flavor for a truffle dish. Next time I go back I'll stick with the regular menu.
