good wholesome food and very nice service. Great dark bread!
Food was very nice and pleasant service, decent organic wine.
Excellent food with a good choice and great service. Will definitely go again.
The food was lovely, there were great choices, including gluten free options. The service was also really great. I would totally recommend that you try it out!
My party of eight were well pleased with our experience, enjoying a range of tasty and well presented dishes and a good choice of soft drinks. Main courses were quite generous so we found those sufficient with just coffees or hot chocolate to finish. The waiter was pleasant and unobtrusively efficient. The staff were unphased by the fact that several of us were rather late arriving. The room is very simple and not particularly spacious, but this didn't spoil our enjoyment. Pricing seems appropriate for the high-quality fare on offer. Some of us said we would happily return to Carnevale individually .
The restaurant was completely empty at lunch which I think was due to the food market happening just outside (and Carnevale was fully participating in it with their own stand, so emptiness was definitely not a bad thing). Service was a bit slow but that's probably due to the food market again. We had felafel and risotto, and it was delicious. The aubergine sauce would melt in my mouth. Will be back for more.
Very friendly and helpful staff explained the vegan options on the menu perfectly to me. Great food - I had the stuffed young artchokes followed by the home made sausages and Colecannon. Finding the later on a vegan menu was a real result as getting vegan potato based dishes is quite challenging. The white wine (house was a little to sharp and crisp for my tastes, so I'd try something else next time. The restaurant is also very cramped, but if you like the intimate dining experience with your partner (and others!), this place is for you. All in all - hand crafted, great tasting veggi and vegan food at a reasonable price.
The food at Carnevale is still pretty good, the bread and butter pudding is outstanding. I first went to Carnevale about 20 years ago and very little has changed in decor or menu. It needs a little tlc to make it a warmer, more welcoming ambience. The staff were friendly and accommodating.
Another wonderful experience at Carnevale. The staff were friendly, humorous and charming. The food, as ever, was absolutely delicious - this time it was a Valentine's menu that was both affordable and varied. I can't recommend this place highly enough, and we make a point of visiting regularly!
Carnevale is a lovely, intimate restaurant tucked away down a street near Barbican. The service was friendly and the food was really very good. We had the ravioli starter which was delicious and then shared the felafel with harrisa and hummus and the potato cakes. We left full and very happy!
