Second visit this month. Excellent trio de pasta. Original Italian flavours, great service, friendly staff. Especially the Eastern European lady, she is very helpful.

I made a reservation online for breakfast for 2 people at Carluccio's Leicester (in the Highcross shopping centre) and when we arrived we were told by one of the staff members 'we don't open until 9am, I noticed your booking this morning, our website does say that we open at 8am but it's wrong.' There was no attempt at contacting... More

I decided to pop in for breakfast on Saturday morning and I was very impressed. The staff were very polite and prompt and not overbearing. I ordered Eggs Benedict which was delicious, the bacon complimented the sauce very well. The cappuccinos were delicious too. Really enjoyable!

Until now I have only been to this restaurant on a handful of occasions for a daytime coffee. It seemed quite white and bright and I was so pleasantly surprised that for evening service it transformed itself into this wonderful subtly lit place. The fish stew was heavenly, very hearty. I like my food without lots of extra unnecessary sauce... More

Went to carluccio's for a quiet dinner on a Sunday evening. Arrived and flagged down a waitress who said she absolutely had space for 2. Should have noted the eternity taken to get our drinks as an indicator and left! There were 3 staff members on shift when we arrived: Our waitress, a waiter (both in uniform) and a lady... More

Having been to this restaurant quite a few times since it opened, though not for a year or so, and the food generally being of reasonable standard, I wasn't prepared for the shock of the poor quality of food and service being offered. Things started bad when we couldn't order carbonara because there was no pancetta. Then one of the... More

went here for my sisters birthday but did not enjoy it. Pasta was tasteless,we complained and they were very polite and offered to make it again. We were disappointed by the food but at least the staff was very helpful and didn't charge us.

I enjoyed my pasta dish, but my husband found his carbon era bland and portions were small. No bread served unless an exta- in an italien!
