San Carlo Liverpool: An Italian Culinary Adventure

Sunday 23rd Jun 2024 |

I have always loved the atmosphere at San Carlo restaurants, they are always vibrant and the food is consistently good, making it a no-brainer for those of you, like me, who have a penchant for tasty Italian food.

San Carlo Restaurant in Liverpool offers an authentic taste of Italy right in the heart of the city. Located on Castle Street, this luxurious dining spot is renowned for its elegant ambience and exceptional service. The interior boasts a chic, contemporary design with touches of classic Italian decor, making it perfect for both intimate dinners and lively gatherings.

The menu is a delightful journey through Italian cuisine, featuring a variety of traditional dishes made from the freshest ingredients. From mouth-watering antipasti and rich pasta dishes to fresh seafood and perfectly cooked meats, every plate is perfectly crafted. There is also an extensive wine list that compliments the food perfectly, offering selections from some of Italy’s finest vineyards. But one mustn’t miss the cocktails either, the bar is always impressive at San Carlo and Liverpool is no exception, a perfectly served passionfruit Martini is my companion for perusing the substantial menu!

On this occasion, I chose mussels in a white wine and garlic broth to start and they were delicious, succulent and flavourful with just the right amount of bread to soak up the delightful sauce. Across the table, my husband tucked into garlic prawns which were also superb, fresh and meaty with just the right amount of sweetness to compliment the garlic. Delish!

For mains, well, when in Rome… I chose a spicy pasta Ariabiatta smothered in a rich tomato and chilli ragu and a generous shaving of fresh Parmesan. It might seem like a relatively simple dish, but so many ‘Italian’ restaurants get it wrong, this was chef’s kiss good.

My husband chose the Calzone, a gigantic folded pizza baked to perfection, smothered in rich tomato sauce and stuffed to bursting with chicken, garlic, spinach & cheese – another chef’s kiss!

Too stuffed for dessert we opted to finish with one of San Carlo’s famous Limoncello Spritz, the perfect end to a fantastic meal.

San Carlo is not just about great food; it’s an experience that celebrates the essence of Italian hospitality. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or enjoying a casual meal, San Carlo promises an unforgettable culinary adventure in Liverpool. Tell them I sent you.
