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.

    Once again, another wonderful meal, the beef tenderloin is to die for. Highly recommend this little gem just off of Corydon.

    Food was, as usual outstanding. We had an enjoyable evening with our granddaughter and her friend in celebration of her university graduation and it couldn’t have been better. Our server was attentive and very helpful and best of all, seemed to truly enjoy her work. Our desserts were very good and the wine was reasonably priced and of good quality. We try to frequent Cafe Carlo whenever possible and has become one of our favourites for small get togethers with a casual but intimate setting.

    Pasta dishes were flavourful and uncommon. A la Carte menu doesn’t work with mussels. Wine list is nice but expensive. Steak bites were over done. Noise level made conversation difficult. Restaurant was quite busy. Service was good but continuous bussing lacking.

    Cafe Carlo is one of our go to restaurants in Winnipeg and they never disappoint. Being our anniversary we had to have an Amarone from Verona, two wonderful pasta dishes (the seafood cannelloni was superior) and the creme brule always satisfies. Another wonderful experience. Bravo Joel!

    This was our first visit to Cafe Carlo after looking at the ratings and reviews. We were not disappointed with our choice. The restaurant and parking was easy to find (we're not from Winnipeg). The service was perfect and the food was amazing. We had the Fett Chile, Meaty Penne, Creme Brulee and the fruit crisp. All were fantastic and all were very generous portions. We both brought home part of our meal. We look forward to returning and trying other menu items.

    I don’t know what the issue was but our server could not be bothered to provide even a modicum of service. It felt like they wanted us out as quickly as possible. At least hostess was accomodating.

    The beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection and I left full. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great and the staff are on top of things. The gnochi was great too. It was a good balance and not overloaded with cheese. Definitely plan on coming back.

    Café Carlo is a go-to whenever I’m in town. Had some amazing cocktails. My food was perfect. Delicious. My dinner partner’s butternut squash ravioli was, according to her, somewhat dry and chewy and she felt the filling was under seasoned, hence the four stars for the food this visit. That said, my own order was five star all the way.

    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.

    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
