Useful information on Carlotta Vega (Past)
Current: Owner of the Angel Square Diner
Past: Dorian Lord's maid
Although Carlotta Vega has lived in Angel's Square for many, many years, it wasn't until 1995 when she appeared on the scene in Llanview. Having lost her husband, and with her oldest son, Antonio, in jail for killing a man in self-defense, Carlotta was forced to raise her second son, Cristian, by herself in an area of town that is notorious for gangs.
Working as a maid for Dorian Lord, Carlotta's dream was to once again run the Angel Square Diner that she and her late husband took over. It was Antonio who made her dream come true after he bought back the diner and turned it over to his mother.
Although love didn't come easy for Carlotta throughout the years, she did allow a few men into her heart. She had genuine feelings for Clint Buchanan, but knew it could never work because of their conflicting backgrounds. From there on, Carlotta decided to play it safe and had a steamy, no strings attached, affair with DA Hank Gannon, which also ran its course over a period of time.
Years went by and Carlotta shocked her family when she admitted that Antonio wasn't her biological son, rather the son of her mobster brother Manuel Santi who would've destroyed Antonio's life with his dark crimes.
In 2008, the diner burnt down and devastated Carlotta, but Charlie Banks came to the rescue and turned it in to a replica of the Bonjour Cafe, which quickly grew on her!
Carlotta's motherly qualities managed to hold her family together through the hard times and continue to remain strong. A loving mother and grandmother, her family and her faith are nearest to Carlotta's heart.

Gathered at the diner for a farewell party for Antonio, Antonio explains to Jamie that he's going to miss her like crazy, but she'll be in good hands with Talia, Cris and Carlotta. When Cris pulls him aside, Antonio tries to explain that he's going to put the issue with Carlo to rest - permanently. Just then, Tea arrives, wondering if she's invited to the obvious Vega party. Though Tea is informed that Antonio is leaving town, she appreciates his honesty when he says, "Saying goodbye to you wasn't high on my list." As Antonio and Cris rant at Tea for betraying them, Layla arrives and comforts a sad Talia.
Across the room, Talia notices Layla glaring at Cris, to which Layla explains why she suddenly hates Cris - because he hurt Sarah and about his visit to Evangeline. When Cris approaches, Talia scolds them both, as, back across the room, Tea apologizes to Antonio, says that she's done with Todd for good then promises to be there for him should he need her help. Tea holds her hand out for a shake, but Antonio pulls his old friend into an embrace. After Tea leaves, everyone toasts to and says goodbye to Antonio.
Tea goes to the diner and greets Carlotta, who greets her back with a slap across the face! Though Tea tries to explain how she was trying to clear Ray, Carlotta is furious that Tea put Cris in danger! Carlotta then brings up what Tea did to Starr, on the stand, and blames Tea for Starr's undoubtedly miserable future that she'll endure because of Tea's wrongdoings!
Later, when Carlotta tells Gigi that Stacey never filled out an application, Gigi is irritated, and about to leave, but runs into Stacey, who is entering the diner!
