Sludminger's review of San Carlo - Bristol

★★★★★

“Hungry on a cloudy Monday lunchtime my finacee and...”

Written on: 09/02/2011 by Sludminger (16 reviews written)

Hungry on a cloudy Monday lunchtime my finacee and myself happened upon the San Carlo restaurant in Corn Street, Bristol. The menu looked a little pricey but gazing inwards from the street it looked too good to pass by.



We were welcomed by the charming Italian front-of-house and presented with a bowl of fat, garlicky complimentary olives. Two good large glasses of wine quickly followed by a rich, creamy pan of plump, juicy mussels served with thick slices of effortlessly light sundried tomatoe home baked bread.

My partner's "Scallops San Carlo" were good and served in the shell with another rich, creamy slightly garlicky sauce. They were plump, fresh and totally plentiful - she's a hearty eater but was defeated by the task in hand!



My Ravioli Lobster was stunning and the star choice of the day. Half a dozen or so large pink (the colour of cooked lobster) pasta mounds full of strong, clean tasting fresh lobster arrived swimming in a pink sauce of lobster reduction. They were incredible and as someone who does not have the largest appetite in the world I managed to happily clear my plate for once - such was the quality of the food.All in all, with a 10% service charge we left £50 the lighter but with very full bellies and smiles on our faces. Excellent!
