Great food, great service, good value. If you find yourself near the main train station, I would encourage you to stop inside for pizza & beer, wine & pasta, or all of the above. The gnocchi with pancetta is amazing. And the pizza with prosciutto, mushrooms & Gorgonzola is excellent.

Beautiful restaurant. Good ambience. Delicious food. Huge menu. Everyone will find something. It is not expensive, normal price. The staff is very friendly. We had the food very soon because we were early. Perfect for lunch and I am sure also for dinner.

If I stay a few days in Berne, I stay in a hotel nearby. But now to the Da Carlo. After my first contibution a few month ago and at least ten more visits I have to summarize as follows: what ever I ordered, the quality of the food was always outstanding; beef tenderloin, lamb filet, chicken breast or spaghetti...

If you like a nice italien feeling with good service and very good italian food & pizzas go for Ristorante Da Carlo! The owner is real italian and knows best how to give guests a feeling of welcome and service. Very good food & wine and a nice living atmosphere with good service and resonable prices.

Its inviting outer facade well foretold the great Italian food and wine. Frequented by many locals, cared for by the host himself. A great experience worth recommending. The wines were especially interesting.

The decor was very nice and provided a perfect backdrop to dinner. Our waitress was relatively new but very good and we predict a bright future for her. The mozzarella cheese on the caprese salad was the best I have ever had. The owner told us it was from the Salerno area of Italy. The rest of the meal was... More

I live in Italy and typically am very wary of going to any Italian restaurant outside of Italy. After a week long business trip in Germany with a heavy diet of meat and potatoes, I took the chance at this Italian restaurant for lunch. Very nice atmosphere inside. Massively bustling. I was lucky to get a table, but the owner... More
