Abbiamo scelto di cenare e festeggiare il mio compleanno all’osteria San Carlo dopo aver letto le ottime recensioni. Non possiamo far altro che confermarle tutte!!!
Cibo ottimo, a partire dall’antipasto di fiori di zucca ripieni di baccalà (fenomenali), zuppa di piselli preparata con cura per la nostra bimba che l ha assaporata con gusto e divorata, ottimo anche il resto della cena in particolare il tiramisù. Staff gentilissimo e professionale. Di sicuro ci torneremo.

Andrei our waiter made the difference in our experience, his recommendations and suggestions validated this restaurants spot in the top Italian places in New York.
My daughter and I were here for the last day of truffle fest, we took full advantage thanks to Andrei.

Authentic slice of my hometown of Turin in the heart of Soho. Premium ingredients, traditional taste and careful, contemporary presentation. Special mention to fish, desserts and wine list.

Great decor, nice ambiance, fabulous service. But for 200 dollars, one would expect fresh bread and somewhat larger pasta portions. Also, we saw what must have been the owner poor the remains of several bottles into one, which would presumably be served to diners.. not ideal for 20 bucks a glass on average.

What a great meal! We were greeted warmly at the door at this small, neighborhood restaurant in SoHo. A low-volume, thoroughly enjoyable jazz trio was playing old standards - set a great mood. Food was terrific - especially the pork chop and the lamb. Service was delightful, and a great Italian wine list. We'd love to come back here.

It was not the first time we had a dinner at the restaurant.
The appetizers where ok,but my gnocchi where mediocre and not better than from the pasta box from supermarket.
I am not mentioning that the prices for everything are extremely overpriced!
They are tiring to attract customers with the northern Italian food,but that is for people who never been to Italy.

As an Italian, I can say that San Carlo is one of the best Italian restaurants in town! You can savor the best the Italian cuisine from the northern part of Italy can offer, at a fare price. The wine list is great, as well as the service and the ambience.

Food was so good-service was very attentive. The place is small so it gets a little loud hour otherwise it’s a great spot. Great for dates or small groups. Loved the limoncello shots at the end - very authentic Italian

We were prompted to go to San Carlo for their Sunday brunch last weekend because we wanted to enjoy their live jazz with the Emanuele Tozzi Trio from 1 to 4pm. We arrived just a little after 1pm but we were seated promptly by the very charming Davide, one of the owners. We got a great table right in front of the performers and were very quickly served water and bread. Our drink orders were placed with our food orders and our waiter was wonderful and very engaging with us on our menu and drink selections. They have a great wine list and good options for wines by the glass as well. I ordered the steak and eggs. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned and came with a side salad with a yummy balsamic vinaigrette and fingerling potatoes. We enjoyed a leisurely meal and stayed until 4pm when the entertainment was over. We were thrilled to be able to chat with the musicians in between sets and to make friends with a couple who were also there to enjoy the music and were already fans of Emanuele. San Carlo is also a great spot for SoHo people watching with their large glass front wall. Can't wait until it's warm enough for them to open that up wide and let us all spill out onto the sidewalk so all of the passers by can enjoy the music as well! Great dining and entertainment experience all around! Thank you, San Carlo!
