Always seems to be yummy with good service no matter which branch we go to. First time at this one: great fast and friendly service, delicious food but wine could be better.

We have been to a number of the restaurants in the Carluccio's chain and they are places you can rely on get an adequate and reliable pasta dish. This was certainly the case here. The wine list is very reasonably priced and of good quality. There is an extensive gluten free menu available so those with a wheat allergy can... More

Went here for a quick evening meal. Service was fine and the spaghetti vongole was really good. Would definitely go back. Please visit this restaurant with an open mind. Enjoy the buzz and do not expect an amazing meal but one that will satisfy every taste.

Quick family meal. Went in at 12.00 and by about 12.30 people were queuing 10 deep. The noise level was considerable - although others would might say it was vibrant - it depends on what you are after - but both my brother and I had difficulty in hearing each other. Food was competent and unexciting. Service bordering on slow.Price... More

Some rave and some rant about carluccio's i am simply disinterested. Formeost a very congested space and dinners had to actually half get up to let others pass. Had the mixed olives with bread to start the meal, olives came from a cheap can from a discount food store or so i thought. For the mains we ordered a pasta... More

After reading some of the less-stellar reviews I was a little hesitant to visit here, but the bright windows and lack of a line after a long day of rainy sight-seeing won me over. The good: Family-friendly. Even though my 12-year-old can certainly behave herself appropriately, it's always nice to go to a place that has a bunch of kids... More

I never normally review places that I go to grab a coffee and maybe some breakfast on a daily basis but on this occasion I felt I had to. I took my mum out for some breakfast after her hospital appointment and whilst we were originally going to grab a coffee and some pastries, I said, why don't we get... More

Had a business lunch with colleague who has an office close by. The service was very good and menu small but very adequate. Wine list also very acceptable. I had ravióli which was excelente. The ´´sorbet`` however was not good tasted like crushed ice.

Went early to a booked table, our guests were already seated at a great table by the window and had drinks and bread. Service was speedy, attentive and thoughtful, food just right when served. We were at the earliest sitting for the evening meal, and in fact 15 mins in advance of the "start" time, and were comfortably in time... More
