From the friendly greeting when we arrived early for our reservation till we left to a warm thank you, a great dining experience. We got seated right away and ordered a crisp white wine we had never had from the Piedmont Region that was recommended by the Sommelier, it turned out to be a great choice. We had pasta appetizers, both phenomenal (gnocchi with mushrooms and spaghetti with anchovy/raisins/pine nuts). For dinner we had the cod and striped bass regular menu selections. The flavor and preparation of both dishes was fantastic...just the right portion size, especially after the pasta appetizers. A shared tiramisu was a very nice dessert.... our waiter Mikko, was very friendly and extremely professional; he brought over a platter of cookies and a couple of glasses of Moscato as well....very nice touch!! On a side note you know an Italian Restaurant is good when the person sitting at the table next to you owns his own Italian Restaurant and half of the other patrons are all conversing in Italian. A great, friendly place you won't be disappointed and we would definitely go back!!

Ok but does not stand out in Soho Italian places. Nice service and very friendly staff. Wish I liked the food more or was at a better price point. Disappointing

The food was amazing but the restaurant was WAY to bright and the explosion of red stars on the table made the valentines dinner seem cheap. It would have also been nice to choose something from a limited menu. All in all fair experience.

The food was amazing....the silliest thing though is that they had the super bowl on ...in Italian...not at all conducive to either the dining experience or watching the game.

San Carlo has the best restaurant week deals. I’ve tried their summer and winter restaurant week menus and I must say their food is always fresh and taste is consistent. I have yet to be disappointed by a meal there. Both their summer and winter truffles are amazing.

I love San Carlo. It's Italian food like you eat in Italy. No gunky chicken parmesan. They serve modern Italian food composed of the best ingredients, simple recipes that resonate on your tongue. The service is terrific...just like in Italy. They treat you like you are a guest in their home. Go...you'll love it!

Everything was wonderful. The food is delicious, very traditional piemontese cuisine. The appetizers were a great start: the tartar, veal, and anchovy toast. First course of chestnut pasta was rich and satisfying, with a great texture contrast of hazelnuts. Second course was duck breast, which was cooked perfectly. Dessert was chocolate mousse, which was surprisingly not extremely sweet (good thing). Great way to end the meal. The service was attentive and pleasant. Definitely will be back to try other dishes, especially the truffle menu.

The service was impeccable - if you would like a true Italian experience - this is the place to be. Food was on point that tiramisu was so good - ingredients are fresh like the beef cheek - you only need a fork and pair it all with some freshly grated white truffle with a glass of Lambrusco - yesssss - please transport yourself back to Italy without leaving NYC :)

San Carlo is a special Italian restaurant with a strength in seafood, meat, and pasta dishes! You can always count on reasonablely priced wine to enhance your dining experience there. The bass with kale sauce is amazing and the beef agnlotti are not to be missed! Enjoy!

Incredible angel hair truffle pasta, best we've ever had. Beef tartare was also excellent as an app. Pork tenderloin was solid, although overshadowed by the truffle pasta. Tiramisu desert to die for.

Will definitely come back again.

Our server was not familiar with the wine list at all and was not able to answer my questions.

They did not bring bread to the table we had to ask for after 25 mins of waiting.

The food was not that hot to eat not was it breathtaking.

The knew the service wasn’t the best and gave us complimentary moscato at the end.

Overall I was disappointed with my experience. I will probably not come again or recommend it. It did not feel it was worth my money spent.

San Carlo is a lovely find in the heart of the village. It has a very unique Piedmontese menu, the one I grew up with, rich in flavors and tradition. The service is excellent and so is its wine list. The night I was there there were small table with couples as well as larger groups, but the ambience was very cozy and the noise level remarkably acceptable for a NYC restaurant. I will definitely go back and bring my American friends with me so that they can try a different type of Italian menu than what they are so used to.

A great place with really authentic dishes from Piedmont (being from Piedmont myself I feel I can make that claim). Great wines from Piedmont too. A bit pricey (that's why value I just gave three stars) but it's just a warning not to expect something more low key: their choice of ingredients (very high quality) and the location (in the heart of Soho) justifies the premium. Recommended.
