We went as a five in March this year and it was my first visit for 20 years or so. Its certainly changed, a little bigger but very individually run. And whilst I can understand the owner is very individualistic, we found him engaging, funny and we were well looked after. I have to say the wine and food were... More

My first visit here to celebrate my wife's birthday. Excellent selection on the fixed menu (£15.95 for three courses). House wine is very good - we had a Barbera. Make sure you book beforehand - the restaurant was very busy on a Thursday lunchtime. Don't be put off if you see the car park is full. Carlo very kindly took... More

Much quieter than my only previous visit, on a Sunday lunchtime, which was welcome on this occasion. By 10pm we were one of only 2 tables remaining. Generous helpings of beef carpaccio and finely sliced porchetta - both delicious - followed by ravioli con funghi e tartufi + salad and calves liver with mash & creamed spinach. Friendly & prompt...

Came upon this place by accident as we're staying nearby. What a find. A proper Italian restaurant rather than the chains that pretend. Really great atmosphere - loud and slightly chaotic but perfect. Really good food, the four of us all had very good dishes. Lovely staff I will return if I'm ever in the area

We had lunch recently, which was a Christmas present from one of our daughters. We have always had good meals at Carlo's but this one was even better than usual. Particularly good were the cod goujons, which tasted as though the cod has just been caught and were beautifully cooked, as was the main course.

Carlo's proved a worth venue for my son's 50th birthday treat. Our reception and pre dinner drinks were attended to with friendly attentiveness. The starters were delicious and generously portioned. The main meals were cooked to perfection with judicious use of herbs. The ravioli was particularly good. Coffee was as good as Mullins in Dorking. They need to source a... More

A good Italian menu, well prepared in up-market surroundings but easy to spend a lot of money and hard to see how the prices are justified.

Have been here a couple of times recently and had fantastic food. The restaurant is beautifully furnished with white damask table cloths and napkins with sparkling glasses and cutlery. Great choice of food all beautifully cooked and presented by very obliging and friendly staff. Highly recommend.
