This place is one of my wife's favourite restaurants. I haven't been too impressed at the previous couple of visits, but I have to say on this latest occasion everything was really good. It wasn't busy and the service and food were excellent.

Had a really lovely meal here on New Years Eve. Foid is excellent, better than the original San Carlo across the road. But the loos are actually part of House of Fraser and were absolutely disgusting. Ruined the experience a bit.

We strolled in with our overnight bags, feeling a little worse for wear. We had delicious food and coffee in front of us very quickly. Great service and friendly staff. We've never been here before, but I'd visit again.

I went to San Carlo Chicchetti to meet some friends before Christmas, and it was the first time I'd had Italian food served tapas-style. The food was great, with some really tasty dishes. We had 9 between three of us, which gave us a generous...More

When walking in to a quality restaurant for the first time, you expect warmth and attentiveness. Sadly, that was not our experience on Christmas Eve. Having booked online 4 days ahead (for 5 people), it was disappointing to be kept waiting 15 minutes for the...More
