An excellent anniversary meal

Visited last month with my wife for our anniversary. Really impressed – the staff were conscientious and assisted us without being pushy, and were very knowledgeable about the menu and which combinations of wine worked best with our food orders. We had a lovely evening and we’ll definitely be coming back.Report this
Food was Good

We planned a weekend in Leicester, and having read the good reviews on this restaurant, attempted to book a table by email for our first night there. Not receiving a response, we sent out a second e-mail. We got a confirmation of our booking for 7.30 pm. We arrived on time, the restaurant had no record of our booking - but they could fit us in. At that time of night, the restaurant was already bustling and we were shown to a table for two between two larger tables already full of guests. Our wine & food orders were taken & the starter arrived very promptly - they were delicious. The main courses arrived very promptly and were again beautifully prepared and presented. What we didn't expect was for our 'evening out' to effectively finish only an hour after we'd entered the restaurant. An hour to eat dinner might be acceptable for a 'fast food' establishment - but when we were spending around £15 for a main course with all vegetables, including potatoes, charged as 'extras', we did feel very rushed. Strangely, the tables either side of us were served at a much more leisurely pace. If they had told us they needed the table, we could have gone elsewhere. Also, it is so busy that its gets very noisy. We left feeling a bit 'cheated' having spent best part of £80 on a beautiful meal we had felt unable to relax over and enjoy, and went back to our hotel for a quiet coffee and liqueurs.Report this

San Carlo is an italian place which is a gorgous looking place. The exterior is all glass and it is filled with blue lights which just goes so well. (the review is writing my experience my pros and cons are all written together i will restate the cons in the con box as well.) When i went here i must say we were waiting a while before we were even seated to be served, in the meanwhile we had to wait by the bar, however this is due to the place being excessivly busy and not because the place is too small to incorparate a fair number of people. When we were eventually seated the place had a variety of italien foods like lasagane, pasta pizza etc. We eventually got served and again the service was fairly slow just due to the fact that they were really busy ( and to be fair they usually are always busy) . When the food came it was very nice and the food was hot which is crucial to me. Overall the waiting times were very long and the prices were quite steep but atleast the food was good.Report this
