Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were advised to go to 'The Carlisi' by a friend - What a treat; the staff were very attentive from beginnings to end. The food was delicious, the best we have tasted for quite a while. What else can we say - please try...the Restro, you will love the food, and enjoy being spoilt by the staff. Five stars !!!!! We will be going back very soon. Enjoy. Kevin / Irene -More

I started with a pina colada smoothie and it was exceptional. Started to get a bit peckish as there was quite a long delay to get food but in fairness it was worth the wait - and my wife thought the same!! 👌

We went for dinner on a Saturday evening. The staff were really friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the food. We had a meat and cheese board, arincini and some bruschetta. The food was absolutely phenomenal!!! The ragi arincini ball was beautiful. The bruschetta was diving....All paired with a gorgeous bottle of wine recommended by the staff. We will certainly be visiting again.More

Whenever we visit Liverpool, our trip is never complete without lunch at Carlisis. It is only small and often full but it is worth the wait for a table. The small plates of arancini and bruschetta are perfect. The staff are friendly and the whole...restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. Would recommend highly.More

Service was quite poor and slow - for a busy Saturday night they need to be more organised and have staff who are trained to do the job. Waiting is far more than carrying things from the kitchen to the table. Staff lacked knowledge of...the menu and wine list. They also didn't write drinks orders down then would forget things.More
