Went for an early dinner as a single. Excellent food and service. (Thanks Nick). Seafood with vodka sauce and penne was incredible. Not too heavy. Within walking distance of all downtown hotels. Love the old Italian music. Would definitely come again.

Just a charming little restaurant with good food and fine service. Wine list a little pricey and the bread could be improved but the chef is talented and I would highly recommend this place

Service was slow but mainly because they only had one server for the whole place. The food runners kept screwing up orders so another table got our appetizers before we did that we're seated way after us. Server apologized but still took while to get...More

We split the chicken Marsala with 2 carafes of the house Chianti. Delicious food that was just enough not to feel stuffed. Final bill was only $50!!! Great meal and amazing value!

I lived in Carlisle, PA for almost a year and all the locals said to stay away from Harrisburg. Over the course of the year, I shunned their warnings and Carley's became my favorite spot. It's a perfect place for a date, never crowded, and...More

I would recommend calling the restaurant directly. If they have a standard HH, the specials likely change from week to week.
