I met two friends for lunch and was struck by the buzzy and friendly atmosphere. We had the two courses £10.95-very tasty and enjoyable. The waiter was first class, attentive and charming. We spent two very pleasant hours here and hope to repeat the experience very soon.

I have never been to a carluccio's restaurant before but I have to say the service was prompts and friendly , food arrived quickly and was delicious to top it off. There was a lovely atmosphere and I will definitely be visiting again. Book your table folks to avoid disappointment!

We chose here for a light lunch before heading off to the football, but light???? It was the most huge sharing plate of meats and bread. Delicious as well. The staff were excellent and the prices very reasonable for such a delicious feast. Definitely one to go back to.

The food was good and came quickly which suited us. Drinks mix up- twice proved what we thought that staff were a bit unfocused. Didn't like it that staff eat at the bar whilst we waited for drinks. Would come again but there needs To be a bit more staff training.

Very dissapointed with this place, service was lacking in so many ways, food although looked good was cold, complained about this but complaint was totally ignored, would have walked out had we not been with friend and family. Coffee cold, food took almost an hour to arrive, summing up it was not a good experience and definately would not recommend.... More

This was I nice restaurant. A bit classier than you average Italians, also the food was a a bit of a spin on the normal Italian food. They're recommendations on the food when I was in.

We arrived in Leicester, film booked, but forgot to book a restaurant. Everywhere was full, with others in the vicinity turning us away. Carluccio's was also full, with a few couples waiting at the bar for tables to become vacant. On our way in, we noticed that the outdoor seating was not being fully utilised (it was slightly cold outside)... More

Extensive menu and good quality food but no excuse for such slow and impolite service, where asking for water, menues, even the bill all seemed like an inconvenience to the waitress.

Could not fault the service; My Girlfriend has a dairy allergy and the waitress who's name I can't recall bent over backwards so she could pick food that wouldn't cause a reaction. The waitress also had a dairy allergy which helped and the whole time she was friendly and very helpful. The food was typical for a high street chain,... More
