We love this place. Exceptional service and delicious food. I like black pasta and it's rarely served, but In Carlos&Carlos I can have it!

Carlos always greets us with a "welcome home" when we arrive. We have a Friday night date night and almost always end up a Carlos and Carlos, because we love the food and the service is excellent. It is always crowded on the weekend, so be sure to make reservations. My favorites are the chicken vesuvio, the steak and the... More

I've been to Carlos and Carlos three times now and each time is better than the last. This past time it was my birthday, so I was treated to a complimentary dessert and after dinner cordial. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Carlos and Carlos is (or atleast seems) very Italian through and through. The servers are excellent and very... More

The food was incredible, drinks were amazing and the staff made it even better. We had the black pasta, linguine with clam sauce and creme brulee. Highly recommended.

Our first time. Restaurant can be noisy, but the food and service surely make up for that one small issue. Service is outstanding as they seem to let various servers keep an eye on you, so there is always follow up. We had the spaghetti and meatballs and diablo shrimp. HUGE portions. The salads are excellent and very large as... More

Impeccable wait staff, incredible food, nice atmosphere. Visited for a birthday and everyone in the party was delighted. Highly recommended. A bit on the more pricey side, but well worth it.

I really enjoyed our dinner at Carlos and Carlos. We recently went on a snowy night with friends and had wonderful experience from the moment we walked in the door. The waitstaff catered to our every need and even brought us after dinner drinks on the house. The warm bread and olive tapenade was a great way to start. We... More

We've been here half a dozen times, and the food has been pretty good, my favorite dish is the Langostino. The service has not been that great, each time we've gone there the waiters have either been rude, or really weren't into their job, like they wish they were somewhere else.

The exterior dinning space, the windows, the front doors, and the bathrooms are dirty. Best use your judgement when the light isn't shining bright and there's a romantic glow. This place is DIRTY! Think I'm too particular, check the place during the day, and the competition. Being said, I do like this place, but they need a major scrub, then... More
