About the restaurant
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.

We had a lovely dinner with first rate food gorgeously presented and oh so tasty . There were gluten free options for appetizers , entrees and dessert which we really appreciated due to being celiac. The ambience was lovely and the service was excellent. It was nice to eat out when the waiter is not waiting to take away you plate but let’s you enjoy your night out. It made our anniversary dinner very special !

Boston Clam Chowder and Blackened Mahi Mahi were excellent. The Chicken Madeira Rigatoni was just okay, I liked the flavor, but the pasta was a bit too firm for me.

Everything was delicious. The last 5 times I’ve come to the keg wanting to try the new Parmesan potato puff appetizer and every time I am told they do not have them. Very strange. I hope to try them one day!

The pricing is rather high but it is to be expected for a restaurant like this one. The food was very good and made better with great service, particularly the sommelier, Daniel. Very attentive server as well.

A gorgeous venue for an anniversary treat, the ambience is lovely and soft and the staff were extremely polite and attentive. I do wish I had mentioned it was our first time there, as I was unfamiliar with the etiquette - I wasn't sure where to put the tea bag so I over-steeped my lovely earl grey (so very sad and my bad). Also, I am a bit of a heathen and struggled with eating my little sliders with a fork - surely there are exceptions and I could have used my hands, yes? Alas, I should return with my questions, if not just for that incredible sweet potato and sage scone. The vanilla and honey panna cotta? Oh my yes. Get the golden dragon jasmine tea if you're there; divinity in a tea cup.
