I love this place. Every time we take friends and family, they love it! My dad has been to the best restaurants that money can buy any he said his dish was the best he has ever had.

I always order the same thing because it is so good. I

This is my 8 year old daughter's favorite restaurant (she's a foodie!) The food is great--wheat-free options, delicious, fresh, organic food. I've even run into the chef at the farmer's market, so I know the food he is using is very high quality...and it shows!

We were introduced to Cafe Carolina by my father 3 years ago. We have been get our fix there ever since. Our two daughters love it there. The staff knows us by name and remembers our food preferences as well. They make you feel like family. The ambiance and the staff are great, but it is wide variety of OUT OF THIS WORLD food that keeps us coming back. It is consistantly amazing! Thank you Isabella and Giuseppi!

This is not your normal Italian food that's easy enough to just cook yourself at home. This is exotic Italian with perhaps a touch of French. We order 3 or 4 entries every time we go, and take home leftovers to eat the next couple

A friend of mine took me to Cafe Carolina for dinner. I had never been to an organic restaurant before so I was a little hesitant. I found the restaurant to be a charming place. It is family owned and everyone working there is very pleasant. The food was awesome. Everything was extremely fresh. I ordered the fish along with a dinner salad. The portions were perfect. They are only opened for dinner Tuesday-Sunday from 5:30 till 10pm. They do not serve alcohol so bring your own wine and they only charge $3 for a corking fee. They are located on Ventura Blvd near Zelzah. Go early or make a reservation because they book up fast. One of the best Italian places I have ever been to for sure.

This is a small restaurant, about a dozen tables, so make sure you have a reservation. Not much in the way of ambience -- white tablecloth with a 'drawing paper' cover, black chairs with pads...the basics. The food was pretty good - we

This place was a disappointment. The menu looked great.. organic fare.. I was really hopeful. But this restaurant seriously lacked execution. I hope the owner reads this and either has a good talking-to with his chef or just gets another

Oh wow - this place is delicious. We met the chef who was very nice but more importantly made the most delicious dishes. I had a gorgonzola gnocchi that was pure heaven and my date had a passta with sweet taste and raisins - I don't know

Walk into a cafe in Italy- or at least, that's what it feels like. Italian owned and operated, these people know good food. The chef changes his specials every week from butternut squash and spinach cooked in his delicious brown butter

Cons: It is small, so make a reservation.

Friends introduced me to thCafe Carolina and it is now a regular craving! Organic foods are used to prepare exquisite Italian dishes. Chef Giuseppe Dossi, formerly of Il Fornaio and Prego fame, is commited to creating good food with passion. The restaurant is cozy, warm, and earth-friendly. Get in before you have to get in line!
