A fine place for lunch when you've done shopping

It's one of the less pretentious chains I find. This was the first time at the Bluewater one. The place is bright and cheery. Even though is looked very busy the service was excellent. We had the Nicoise Salad which was fine and with a good sized portion. The tuna was out of a tin rather than... read more

The staff were well mannered and attentive but they brought our main course out less than 2 minutes after putting our starter on the table. They were taken back to the kitchen without complaint but were really only average and not particularly Italian tasting when they were returned to the table. Will go to Zizzi's next time we are at...

We go here for breakfast quite frequently and it is a reliably pleasant way to start the day. The staff are friendly and the food is good. It is a good place to take small children because the atmosphere is fairly relaxed.

I have never been to a Carluccio's before. We stopped here for Lunch whilst shopping on Saturday. Had a lovely meal, the service was brilliant, cocktail was beautiful, we shared the trio of pastas and all were brilliant. Cheap meal as well so was very impressed!! Thanks for a lovely visit.

We sat outside last week to order some drinks. After 10 minutes waiting we went to the desk to ask and pay for drinks. They were very surprised that we sat there with no attention from waiter. However, we could not take our drinks and pay at the desk. We were forced to seat outside and our drinks were delivered... More

Nice food, as its a chain you can generally rely that it will be the same where ever you eat. Service outside seems to be a bit slower than when seated outside but maybe that was just the warm weather slowing everyone down?

Popped in for some lunch whilst visiting Bluewater for some family shopping time and as my wife had visited previously and enjoyed the experience we went back as a family for a visit. All was good, service, attention etc. and we ordered just mains as didn't really need starters for lunch and within a reasonable time the mains were brought... More

The Pappardelle con Pollo was absolutely sublime, probably the best pasta dish I've ever tasted. For the food alone I'd certainly re-visit. What I won't look forward to however are the dirty, smeared and smudged glasses and cutlery and the slow service. The staff themselves were pleasant enough and the food was brilliant but some of their general standards need... More

We were looking of somewhere to eat for dinner with some US visitors and went to Bluewater due to the choices there. Italian suited the most people, so we headed here. Being midweek, it wasn't busy and we had the choice of tables. We ordered drinks, and a couple of starters, including the savoury bread tin, which is always popular.... More
