Went in for a drink but decided to get the menu of the day with main course and dessert. Main course was served pretty fast, but we waited well over a hour for dessert. Good food and nice surroundings. But really bad service. Really disgusting...More

My wife and I paid 10 euros for 1 espresso, 1 tea and a biscuit. The service was slow and disinterested.

San Carlo is situated on a beautiful square with the same name. You get very good value for money for drinks as well as food. Glass of wine is 7,5€ but served with a plate of great pizzettas, canapes,... Food is really fresh and great...More

We choose this cafe due to its great location. As it was great weather, we sat outside. I had a lovely risotto and also tried some ravioli (which I can recommend). The downside was the slow service and lack of attention the waiters give you.
