Good Italian cooking here. Had the lasagna and it was awesome. Large menu that can be found on the website. Service was good, quite Saturday night and all went well. Must return to try the other tempting dishes on the menu.

Stopped in for dinner. Ordered the meatballs appetizer, potato gnocchi with meat sauce and lemon cello for dessert. Meatballs were super tender. The gnocchi was cooked well and were quite tasty. The lemon cello was a nice way to finish the meal off.More

In the early 1970's, Carlo and Felicia Schiattarella ventured from their small town in Naples, Italy & opened a quaint carryout pizzeria. Three decades later, The Schiattarella family is proudly introducing their 3rd full service restaurant in MD. Come join us for a delectable experience at Carlo's Italian Bistro and enjoy authentic, mouth watering Southern Italian cuisine. We take pride in serving top quality veal, chicken, seafood and shellfish specialties, along with salads, subs and sandwiches. With all of our menu items made fresh to order, we can gladly accommodate any dietary needs and preferences. Our casually elegant dining room is a perfect setting for a romantic dinner, friendly get-together or business luncheon, along with plenty of space for large parties & gatherings. Although we do not have a liquor license, we encourage our guests to bring their own alcoholic beverages to complete their dining experience.
