Shared and plate of calamari fruity to start; excellent as usual. My wife chose the pan fried calves liver as she often does. It came overcooked with no sign of pinkness. She sent it back. The manageress was very apologetic and replaced the dish. This time the chef had cooked the liver to perfection but in haste had not reduced... More

We decided to try this restaurant for the first time this Saturday. Shown to our table by a very polite hostess. From start to end the customer service was very good and the food equally as good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My Wife then had a mushroom soup and I had beef cheek casserole with grilled polenta. This was really good. Very efficient staff and all in all a very pleasant... More

Was on a Michael Mcintyre Blu-ray that I first heard about this restaurant, he used it as a joke to say married parents will never get a chance to go here again. Well whatever your marital status I suggest you give this a go, lovely food, keenly priced for the quality, highly recommended, see photos of our food.

Visited this evening around 5pm. We eat fairly regularly but tonight was a bad experience and probably our last. It never was very relaxing but tonight the food and service let them down. Twice we had to chase for our drinks order. It's difficult to do as you are so tightly packed in you can't ask for help. Our Carbonara... More

Dear Bill I'm really sorry that your recent visit was such a disappointment, please accept a sincere apology on behalf of the Team. I appreciate your views on the table layout and we will review the seating plan as it clearly affected your service. Our traditional Carbonara must be served well seasoned & piping hot I'm frustrated that we didn't... More

If I could visit Carluccios on a daily basis for breakfast I would - unfortunately it wouldn't be practical. Great atmosphere in the restaurant and attentive staff - 2 thumbs up!

Came here for a long lunch with my best friend, her mum and a whole host of her friends. This wouldn't have been my first choice at bluewater, purely because I'm in Italian so I never really want to eat Italian food when I'm out, but it was really quite nice. For a large table we were very well catered... More
