We had dinner here on our last night in Bruges. After traveling through Amsterdam and Belgium, this was just the right spot for us (per the suggestion of Rick Steves). The restaurant is simple, somewhat casual and beautifully designed, it made me feel like we were in someone's kitchen. Waiter was very quick to greet us and get drinks going.... More

We ate here twice on a recent trip to Bruges and absolutely loved it. The staff were so friendly and attentive and even squeezed us in last minute one of the nights even though we didn't have a reservation. Pizza is so delicious and I had the Carbonara one of the nights which was so yummy! It's very reasonably priced... More

I had pasta with clamp which was good however think the whole service could have been better. Not sure if this restaurant wants to be a good place to eat or a takeaway? Don't feel dispite the investment in ambiance, that this is quite right. Perhaps waiters need to put phones down and concentrate on customers?..

We called late for a table after trying to find a nice restaurant and when we reached carlitos it was no problem to get one. Had great Italian dishes and the service was outstanding. My wife learned to drink redwine and the waitor basically danced around us the whole time we were there.

An average place for a dinner when many other places were full. Would not go again but the food wasn't bad either. The atmosphere and the service were maybe not the best.

Italian restaurant close to the city center, on a quiet road. Good atmosphere, polite staff and the food was more than ok. The pizza dough is very good, the spaghetti is not something super special (not bad though) and the starters was good enough. A bit expensive (around 20 euros per person) but into city's standards and with big portions.... More

I went there with my boyfriend and was highly disappointed with the extremely bland taste of the food. The worst part of the meal was the fact that both of us asked for tap water which we were refused, with the waiter insisting we had to buy water. This was OK, until the bill arrived and we were charged just... More
