A great choice of Italian restaurant in Liverpool. It's very popular so booking is recommended. It can be a little noisy inside but there is a good atmosphere. Staff and service are great. Menu is extensive with specials too so lots to choose from. Food is good quality, well prepared and presented.

After a trip to Anfield a group of 4 of us went to San Carlo. Very hungry guys and so we had different steaks (Fillet for me) and a bottle of Montresor. The steaks were mouthwatering and the wine is divine. Basic choice but of a standard that will always get you going back here. VG service too.

Not many other people in and everyone else seemed to be served but we were left with 2 chairs stuffed with 8 coats and bags as no one came to take our coats. We asked for a high chair 3 times which never arrived. We put our coats... More

Twice we had to get up and ask the head waiter could we order more drinks although interestingly a well known retired footballer sat behind us and I... More

Managed to get a table at 4pm on a busy Saturday. Restaurant looks fabulous - white linen tablecloths add a touch of class. Dining room is big and full of atmosphere. We were pleasantly surprised by the affordability of the dishes - website has no menu details or prices and we suspected it might be a lot more expensive than... More

Visited for the first time on a friday evening. The place was busy but not full. We had made a reservation. The place itself was lovely, as were the cocktails. Shame the same can't be said about the food. Two prawn starters, £9 each which were basically 4 prawns in a small bowl of what tasted similar to tomato soup.... More

Had dinner here with friends. Had a bit of a hiccup over the booking but they said we could have a drink and they fitted us in, seems they do two sitting 7 and 9. Food was good and service friendly and surprisingly quick.
