I've visited carluccio's Leicester 3 times now and it's just not as great as it could/should be . The service isn't great and the food is just average . The menu is a little overpriced but your paying for the name . I won't be rushing back to eat here again . However , the carluccio's shop at the side... More

I have used Carluccios many times in the past and they have always been reasonable. However after eating at this branch I am completely uninspired by it. I can't say there is anything wrong it's just lost something. I had Pasta Puttanesca. Portion was on the small side and was particularly good value. Staff were ok. Just think maybe the... More

Not often you get to cook your own dinner in a restaurant but I would thoroughly recommend the risotto experience. Yes two hours plus tuition from an expert and a fabulous meal to eat at the end. The choice of food was something I never would have picked from the menu with a green risotto containing broad beans, broccoli and... More

I have visited this restaurant on two occasions for dates. This is a nice cosy place with an excellent variety of Italian foods and did definitely not disappoint. The service was excellent and staff couldn't help enough. Both meals I've had here have been very enjoyable evenings. The food was to a very high standard, specialising in Italian dishes such...

A good menu and a good gluten free choice. The staff seem pretty clued up on intolerances so I felt I could eat with confidence. Had a good meal with the family and we didn't feel rushed even though it was a Friday evening. My only criticism would be to consider their choice of puds because there wasn't anything for... More

Took the grandchildren here for a mid morning bite to eat at the weekend. My granddaughter is dairy allergic therefore I advised the waitress and she suggested a nice chicken penne pasta and for my grandson, a nice spaghetti bolognese. Fairly simple task for the Italian chef, or so I thought! After waiting over half an hour she came back... More

Having had a brilliant meal at Carluccio's in Lincoln I tried the Leicester version some time ago and was a little disappointed. Not that there was anything particularly wrong with it, just a little ordinary. I made a second visit this month and my assessment was exactly the same. Service was good, I liked the menu, enjoyed the wine. The... More

This beautiful little restaurant is a great location in Leicester was a wonderful way to start the day before we had a day of shopping until we dropped. The coffee and hot chocolate was sumptuous and the breakfast was delicious too.
