I was excited to come to San Carlo recently for a work dinner.  I had heard of the place even though I work nearby, however a quick search showed it had a lot of hype behind it; no surprise there given where it's located.  We walked over in separate groups, which was a bit uncomfortable when we were able to order when the others made their way over.  Service didn't really do much to help that as they clearly weren't happy (even though the place was empty), however they were fine the rest of the meal.  For drinks, I ordered the Left Hand (their version of a boulevardier) a few times which was solid.  What proceeded was a good meal, but hardly a revelatory one. We started off with the tagliere misto, beef tartare and truffle fries because someone was a pain in the ass.  Tagliere was a good rendition of a cold antipasto, including proscuitto, soppressata, bresaola, parmigiana and a few veggies.  Beef tartare was solid but not the best I've had.  Truffle fries were curiously good; to be fair I wanted to order off the truffle menu, but nobody seemed to be into it so I declined.  I got the cotoletta alla milanese, which is basically a big ass piece of veal that's pounded thin, fried, and paired with a small salad.  It was the highlight of all food being brought out, as it's an impressively sized piece of meat with a small, caveman-like bone sticking out.  This is a dish I get a lot, and this was a good version of it.  The veal was decent quality but could've been a bit better for the price.  The fried coating was also loaded with salt, and the salad that could've balanced this out was too small.  It was still thoroughly enjoyable though.  I tried the agnolotti too which were good for what they were.  For dessert, I got the panna cotta; this was the winner of other desserts on the table, with the pistaccio crumbles and fruit helping to amp up the panna cotta a bit.  Espresso was very solid.   While there are some high spots, count this among the slightly gimmicky, Instagram friendly Northern Italian places that seem to exist everywhere now.  Would come again but not rushing back either.
Food was incredible! Even though the restaurant is tiny, it made for a great atmosphere. Perfect date night spot, whether at the bar or at a table. I recommend the pasta with venison. Every item that came out of the kitchen looked delicious. The only criticism would be that the wait staff seemed to rush groups of 3 or more. Overall, delicious food experience.
Amazing food, terrific service!
