I really am disappointed by this restaurant. At my daughter's request we returned after the last visit which left me feeling I should not have paid. The problem with this restaurant chain is it just one up from a glorified Pizza Hut! We ordered the set menu for myself and both my girls had the child menu. I waited for... More

My daughter and a group of friends have just returned from Carluccio's. They were a party of 10 and they had prebooked. The food was good, but there was a massive difference in portion sizes, even though 4 of them ordered the same thing. They were rushed through and at the end they were going to split the bill between... More

We ventured away from Zizzi to try Carluccios across the road. We sat outside which was quite nice with the heaters under the parasols.  Service was a bit slow, which wasn't due to the place being busy. We both ordered pasta dishes which arrived without any cutlery or condiments. My husband's dish was very tasty, but my mushroom pasta dish... More

We went to celebrate our 2nd Anniversary. I am vegan and gluten free and would like applaud Carluccio's for catering to folk like me. When we arrived the restaurant was very busy - far to busy for the 3 people who were serving that night. We were showed to our table by a charming young lady - I'm sure the... More

The two of us were shoved in a corner near the door, catching the full arctic blast every time someone came in or went out. Took 15 minutes for a drink to arrive, 1 starter was risotto balls which were by no means hot, accompanied by a little dish of what tasted like aldi tinned tomatoes. The other starter was... More

Lovely food and waitress. Nice refit. Girl on the door makes you feel a little unwelcome if you haven't booked but they had loads of room.

I always love it here. Almost feel like home cooked food. Everything is so tasty. Spaghetti carbonara is my favourite. You got to try it with chilli olive oil for a bit of kick. P.s children eat for free at Heathrow ;)

A nice restaurant in a great location. We use it fairly often, mainly just for drinks and occasional food. Never had a problem with the food or drink but the service leaves a lot to be desired. Staff seem to be trained on looking everywhere apart from at customers
