Disappointing visit!

Visited on 4th June around 12.15. We have visited many branches of Carluccio's (and have dined at the Leicester branch previously) and usually enjoy the food and ambience very much. Today, however, service was very slow for both our shared starter and our main meals. It took over an hour for our... read more

Just popped in for lunch last week, and was met by a lovely atmosphere, lovely glass of wine and the lasagne was so soft, and tasty. We had to dash off after this so did not sample a dessert,but the staff were attentive and I would definately visit again, bravo!!!!

Wanted to eat there despite dozens of other restaurants, because they make the best pappardelle in the world. As an Italian myself, I must say the focaccia bread with the mixed meat starters was the best I have ever tasted. It helped that we had an Italian waiter, Fabio, who was very nice and helpful. I visited with my husband... More

I have been meeting a girl-friend here on a bi-monthly basis and always get great service. The pasta is freshly cooked, tastes great and we've never had a problem. We were served late just once in the past year and our full bill for starters, mains, pud and coffee was promptly refunded, a free meal! Can't be bad, one problem... More

Food was pleasant enough although definitely not as good as I have had at others, Milaneze was a little dry and my starter was served cold (it should have been hot). They seemed to put the whole thing in the microwave rather then just the squid. Service very definitely below par - slow to greet at door, multiple servers etc.

Slow to acknowledge at the door, restaurant wasn't too busy. People at the counter ignored us. Nearly left until the girl who looked after us throughout finally greeted us and was lovely. The food was okay, olives are lush! Pasta really broken up in bowl. Not as good as other Carluccios

I actually went to Carluccio's twice on a Friday and on a Saturday night. The first evening my friend and I shared the board with a selection of Italian goodies: focacia, salami, chorizo, mozzarella and many other great specialities. We paid altogether about 16£ for the board. We also had a chocolate tourte and a strawberry tarte. There was a... More
