We were celebrating a birthday dinner at Core de Roma. Attracted by high scores on many websites, we traveled quite far to have dinner there. Let me warn you, it did NOT live up to its scores!!
We arrived 4 minutes past our reservation

Citysearch editor Lauren McCutcheon got it right, look in the window and walk on to eat somewhere else. Service was fair at best, had to continually ask for water. Food came out randomly yet cold when it got to the table. Restaurant was

Not sure what happened when the Citysearch editors went in, but I'm as picky as anyone about Italian food, having lived in the North End of Boston. San Carlo is very good, and at a very good price. Their sauces (which I consider to be the most important thing) are right on. I've had bolognese and alfredo and both have been very good. The antipasto was fresh and very good. Several others I've recommended San Carlo to have also enjoyed it. There's also a very romantic feel to this place.

I went here a little while ago with my girlfriend, who i might add is very picky with her food. Both of us however enjoyed this resturant very much. I dont know why it has such a low rating--the food is excellent. The price is also great, with entrees in the 9 to 15 dollar range. The bread served at the beginning was great, with garlic beans on the side. Try the "three P's" entree -- absolutely magnificient. The gnocci is great too. The tiramisu, however, has way too much cocoa on top. Overall, a great experience. I will return.

Pros: great food, very inexpensive, decor

Cons: tiramisu merely ok

my guest and I waited over 1/2 hour to be seated. I wasn't offered a drink on the house for such a long wait. When it was time to seated I was given a choice of tables which was nice. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgable. After the specials were rambled off, the waitstaff seemed to have gone into hiding. As a I was eating the soup I realized my guest and I didn't have a napkin and NO bread. Hmm? I walked up to the bar and kindly asked for "linens" and bread. the waitstaff seemed very overwhelmed by the abundance of diners. The entrees arrived quickly and piping hot. Great presentations and portions. I had to ask for bread again. The water glasses were empty for awhile too. Great entrees. No grease, not salty or oily. Nice dessert list. It took a while to pay the bill.

This place has got to be the best restaurant on and around South Street. The food is amazing (all bought at the market) and so reasonable!!!! My favorite little spot in the area. Always great service and you are never rushed along. Always recommended.

Pros: everything

The food here is mediocre at best, the service, in a word, stinks; example, we had a party of ten and our food came out in dribs and drabs, then when one person in the party said something to an assistant server who was taking care of our table, his reply was, " hey, I do not cook the food, I only deliver it". Needless to say the tip reflected this. It was so bad that my wife ordered a filet special, and she likes her meat well-well, we told them to butterfly the meat and it still came out red inside, and as testiment to how bad things were, the sent back food came to the table the same time my entree was finally served.

The staff is wonderfully friendly and attentive. The food is marvelous. The prices are reasonable. The pasta is homemade. All in a wonderfully cozy atmosphere. And it's BYOB M-Th. What else could you ask for. Also they have the best stuffed veal chop I've ever tasted.

Having been sent here by my boyfriend's friend, I did not know what to expect. Italian restaurants are often a dime a dozen, but this one stands out for magnificently prepared food. The flavors were perfect and the chicken magnificently tender and juicy. The real delight, however, was dessert. We shared pineapple sorbet which was perfectly smooth and served in a carved out pineapple! The top was lying beside the body of the pineapple and it looked like material for a Dali painting of the best sort. Another notable feature? Reasonable prices!

We too fell upon San Carlo and have been back several times! If you want a change in pasta but the same great flavors, service and prices try their sister store Gnocchi's on 5th... BOTH ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!

We recently ahd a party for 55 that they did an outstanding job on... Thanks to MIKE and the crew at San Carlos!
