A bank holiday breakfast treat, freshly cooked iccluding orange juice and tea or coffee all for under £10.00. Friendly service and a good table next to the window. Well worth it and will definitely do it again.

Had an email from Carluccio's offering a free prosecco with a booked brunch this weekend and as we were going to Leicester anyway, we decided to treat ourselves. We were greeted promptly and even while the booking was being checked, another member of staff came to help. We went for the Magnifica breakfast , which includes a choice of juice... More

My partner and I ordered from deliveroo and couldn't have been more disappointed with what arrived. The food was extremely bland and the portions were abismal. From the price range and reputation we were hoping for luxury dining, what we got was the complete opposite. It is safe to say that we will never be dining there again. Is there... More

Great setting and atmosphere. Good food with lovely fresh ingredients. A fair enough price. Decent little shop to buy some of the great food

I've been to Carluccio's a number of times and the food has always been good. The Leicester branch have great staff who are really attentive and looked after me very well. The coffee and pastry offer for £2 was outstanding - where else can you get a strong Italian coffee and homemade pastry for £2? Delicious. I came back for... More

My son and I visited on a Sunday morning and ordered the Carluccios breakfast. I ordered mine with poached eggs. My son had his with fried eggs. This was not the usual standard. Whilst it was tasty and I enjoyed it, the eggs were cooked very hard, the food did look like it had been hurriedly put on the plate... More

Sat outside for a leisurely lunch taking advantage of the parasols to shade us from direct sun. Great setting, very good food and service. Shame about the wonky tables outside. Everyone outside seemed to have the same problem.
