Oh dear... Our last eat here was about 3 years ago. It took us that long to pluck up the courage to try it again. Our previous occasion our dessert of strawberry cheesecake had an overpowering foreign garlic taste that we had to return AND I kid your not, was being passed by both my wife & I with uncontrollable...

I went here with my partner as we were having a child free night, we waited 20 minutes for drinks and a hour for food. The waiters were rude and had attitude. Very intimidating! Will never be going here again!

You wouldn't go to Bluewater for the restaurants so this was a great surprise. We had the set menu pasta and chicken Milanese. Both tasty. The highlight was the Pannecotta. Beautiful with rum and candied orange peel. Really delicious and worked. Coffee also excellent and friendly service. Very good.

We had an excellent lunch here. The pate was delicious as was the chicken main course. All very reasonably priced as Bluewater are central London prices in the shops. We have eaten here a few times and the quality is always good.

Had dinner at Carluccios and my seafood pasta was pretty bland. The service and waiter were great and I have enjoyed many meals there previously. A friend suggested we eat there and I didn't want to complain as they would have been embarrassed. Might had just caught them on a bad day so will definitely go back.

This was the first Carluccio's we ever visited when Bluewater opened and it still allows us to combine two of our favourite things - shopping and Italian food. The service wasn't quite as sharp or friendly as it has been but the food was very good, as ever.

I went with my family after a few hours of shopping on a Saturday. Although it was busy we were seated quickly. We sat on one of the tables that had the bench seat on one side. Being the lucky chap I am I got to sit on the join between two of the cushion pads which seemed to have... More

I have been here many times for both, breakfast and lunch and a later lunch. It used to be one of myourite restaurants, sadly I do feel it has lost its charm somewhere. Breakfast was ok, a reasonable selection, but I wuldn't say it was good value for money. I had a very nice waiter serve my table and he... More

Part of a chain I know but the consistency is pretty good, they also offer a fixed price 2 or 3 course at a very reasonable price. Service was efficient and staff very friendly. Would recommend for a bite after some shopping. It does get very busy and has a seating area outside if good weather.

Always good Italian food but something is going wrong behind the scenes. 8pm on a Sunday evening and staff are clearing away place settings! Doesn't make an inviting view. Makes one feel you've over stayed your welcome.
