Review on San Carlo
The founder member of a small nationwide chain of contemporary Italian restaurants is perfectly placed up a side street a short stroll from New Street station. It is a glitzy, good-looking place several notches above the usual city-centre 'ristorante italiano'.
The menu ploughs its way through some 140 dishes with scores of pizzas and pasta dishes backed up by starters such as tuna carpaccio and spiced Italian sausage and borlotti beans with grilled polenta, and copious main courses ranging from escalope of veal with porcini mushrooms and white wine sauce to pan-fried fillet steak served in port and Dolcelatte sauce.
There's also a daily black board of fish dishes that could take in moules marinière, grilled Dover sole, lobster tagliolini, sea bass, turbot and more besides. The wine list features a good showing of Italian regional names. There are branches in Bristol, Leicester and Manchester.
