Cafe Carlo is a friendly, unpretentious Canadian bistro located in Winnipeg’s Little Italy neighborhood. Cafe Carlo’s warm, comfortable atmosphere has been a staple in Winnipeg’s dining scene and continues to be considered among the city’s best restaurants since it was established in 1989. The atmosphere and the décor have evolved from the restaurant’s humble “rummage sale” chic beginnings. The owners and employees believed that a great restaurant simply was meant to be “about the food”. The passion of the very first employees and their love of food & drink remain intact to this day. We want to share the foods and beverages we love, that the world loves, with each of our guests.

    Ordered a whole bunch of food, it all came out relatively quick. The pesto gnocchi was the star of the show, also the butter they serve with the complimentary bread is amazing. I’d also suggest the lamb meatballs, so tender and well seasoned. I will be back.

    We had an absolutely spectacular meal from start to finish and our server extraordinaire Tara (I think) was superb. So friendly and attentive. I highly recommend buying the kitchen a bucket of beers as it is well deserved! Do not miss this local family-run gem!

    The food is impeccable. We had the veal and lamb chops. Couldn’t be done any better. Only complaint is it gets noisy when the restaurant is full. We are an older couple so that might make the noise a little harder to talk over.

    When I booked online I said we had a toddler and would need a high chair in the comments. We never got a call/text or email saying they don’t offer high chairs. And they never said anything about it until I asked for one and our waitress said they didn’t offer them. I would have preferred to know before hand so we could just go somewhere else

    The service was good. For the food, the gnocchi ragu was fantastic and the lamb meatballs were also excellent. The veal was not really good, it was under-seasoned and the overall plate was greasy, I boxed it up and probably won’t eat it at home either. The crème brûlée was missing sugar, the chocolate dessert was really nice.

    The food tasted like it was recently frozen and just warmed up for service. The wine was ridiculously overpriced, and desert was bland. I will never go back again and I will continue to share our experience with friends
