When I pick a restaurant in SoHo that I've never before tried, and I find out about it only through the familiar "its Saturday night where am I getting a same day reservation post movie" frenzy, I'm always skeptical that I'm going to stumble inside and find the experience to be disappointing. I am happy to say that I had exactly the opposite experience at San Carlo. It not only lived up to the rave reviews, but I had 3 very picky and experienced Manhattan eatery diners with me and all 4 of us would vote for a return trip, movie or not, even though none of us live in the area. Service was flattering and attentive without being overbearing, table was comfortable, you could hear yourself talk and think AND the food was outstanding. Not sure where they find the goat cheese for the salad, but it is exceptional, the veal milanese was huge and perfectly prepared, the ragu pasta was a healthy portion and delicious, and the cauliflower risotto was creamy and delicious - and dairy free. They even have a lovely plate of biscotti which, at 1030 at night is a perfect dessert to end the meal with enough cookies to share for 4 people and then some. Glad to know there's still something wonderful to discover when the reservation genie is called into action. Can't wait to return!

A wonderful small cozy Northern Italian restaurant with the menu filled with delicious authentic homemade pastas and dishes influenced by their Piedmonte region of northern Italy. The food was exceptional in quality, some of the best Italian food I have eaten in theUnited States. So good in fact we went back twice during our brief stay in New York city. The service was excellent and prices were fair. When we were there for lunch we were the only English-speaking natives and the rest of the people enjoying the food were from Italy or speaking Italian. Truly felt like we were back in Italy.

Very great restaurant !!!
Italian family at its head they of course speak French which is very enjoying. We have been welcomed as warmly as possible.
Next time on New York I know exactly where I will go for lunch. An advice ? Try the MARJAN SIMCIC White wine... an excellent slovenian wine. A very good discovery!!!
Many thanks to San Carlo Osteria

Our favorite Italian in Soho. Moreno and his wonderful staff treat us like family and I only wish my real family could produce so many amazing and authentic northern specialties. The ravioli “plin” tastes of Piemonte while the kitchen pleases with the Battuta di Fassona (steak tartare), gnocchi and pork loin. I usually hate Tiramisù as a lane Americanized “dolce” but San Carlo’s is actually good, no...really good.

The best Italian food we have had in NYC in a very long time. Fresh ingredients , perfectly cooked, innovative combinations. Had many Risottos, but never one as good as at San Carlo. Service was very gracious and professional. Owners make sure everybody has a good time and enjoys the food. Cannot wait to go back.

They cleared our table before we were done with desert. We asked for our spoons back and they did it again 2 min later.

You cannot expect a table of 6 having 3 courses to be done in less than 2 hours.

Overall the restaurant was underwhelming. My family is from the region and I ordered the short ribs. There were two very small pieces of meat in a very cloudy broth. Not what it is in Piemonte. The meat was not even tender. My daughter ordered gnocchi with a taleggio fondue and the gnocchi came out dry?? Terrible!!,

Came for brunch with my parents who were in from out of town. The jazz was lovely but the drinks took forever to come and my dads steak and eggs were over cooked both times. With all the competition this was underwhelming.

We had 9:15 reservations and sat at the bar. Atmosphere was cute and rustic. Bartender, Renata was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on the menu for drinks and dinner. I think it was the owner who came around and constantly talking with customers asking how they liked everything and making general conversation. All of our food choices were great. I loved my beef ravioli, homemade and the perfect amount of a butter sage sauce. My favorite was the strawberry panna cotta. I could have easily ate another one. So creamy! Definitely will be back!

We found this gem of a place on a Saturday night. Great atmosphere and vibe. The service was excellent and the food even better. We had scallops and beef tartar to start which were fabulous. The ravioli and seafood entrees were amazing. The Italian wine list was a little pricey but the somelier was excellent in his recommendation. We will definitely be going back

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!!
