Delicious, especially the artichoke hearts for starters. Lovely little cosy restaurant perfect for either a date or a business lunch, will definitely come again when I'm in the area.
A well thought out menu with tasty choices. Our meals were delicious and well presented. The staff kind and courteous and the prices very reasonable. Whether you are a vegetarian or not you will not be disappointed.
Perfect place to enjoy great veggie food cooked with care. Delicious curry, friendly and efficient service and a few minutes from the Barbican - will definitely be returning.
Delicious food, as ever. Big portions! two mezze starters were more than enough for three of us and we could not finish them. The main courses which followed were amazing. Will definitely return.
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 one of those restaurants where you realise (usually) only when the food arrives what a great decision you made to eat there. It's a place where substance trumps style: the focus on flavours is what makes it so good.
