Very friendly

My husband and I visited this week and it was very busy. We didn't have to wait too long for a table, the meal was nice, we both had lobster and crab spaghetti, which could have done to have a bit more meat in it, but that said it was ok. The staff were very busy and not too attentive,... read more

Met up with others here and their order had been taken. Ours was taken promptly by very polite staff. Drinks arrived quickly, but what was happening in the kitchen? Our straightforward 2 dishes took over half an hour from order to serving, with a delay of 15 mins. after we'd an apology for 'just another 5 minutes' wait'. This is... More

I had lunch here today with a friend and my baby, who is also old enough to eat some of the food! I've eaten at Carluccio's several times before and the food has always been excellent. Today was no exception, I had the ravioli followed by salted caramel sundae. There isn't a separate children's menu, you can order a half... More

we popped in for an early breakfast. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the staff very helpful and friendly. We ordered a cooked meal of toasted ciabatta, pancetta and eggs which was served promptly and was delicious. Steaming woodland porridge was on the menu. Unfortunately it was far from warm and had a strange granola like texture. To my personal... More

Excellent coffee & pastries but my seat was covered in crumbs. When I asked a surly waitress to clean it she did so without an apology but left it wet. When I informed her of this she ignored me, so I dried it with a paper napkin which brought off a considerable amount of dirt. She also ignored the spilt... More

We just had drinks here but the hot chocolate is very popular and the atmosphere is relaxed. Crepes were enjoyed by one member of the group. Central location makes it ideal for a quick stop when shopping or just to meet people in the centre of the city.

I need to write 100 words to get this review posted but all i need to say is GORGEOUS FOOD & PERFECT NIGHT OUT. The atmosphere is great, staff were so friendly and let me try out lots of wines before I purchased the chosen bottle. Food was fresh and delicious. You should try this place without fail!

Walked into the city centre for dinner. As soon as we walked in to Carluccios we were made to feel welcome. The food was delicious, good sized portions. Will definitely be going back again.

This was a family outing for my daughter's birthday. Despite the low expectations (after reading some recent reviews) we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of service, food and atmosphere. Our meals were pleasant if a little small with the sausage pasta meriting a thumbs up from adult and child. Dessert was also rewarded points for the chocolate torte by... More
