Poor service when very busy

Best to avoid this place when it is very busy. Service to the table nonexistent. Very noisy when crowded. Walked out very disappointed.

Stopped by for a working lunch between meetings. Had to wait about 10mins to be seated, but that's ok as its obviously a popular place! I had the bacon and mushroom soup which was fantastic. The service to the table was also very good.

On our recent trip to the National History Museum in South Kensington I spotted a Carluccios and thought to give it a try. Very disappointing. I will list the feedback bullet point format as it is too much to mention. • Service was very slow. A pet hate of mine is to have to get the waiters attention with a... More

Six of us dined here on a Monday evening at 6pm (which in the UK is counted as being early). The place was busy without being heaving - one reason for choosing Carluccio's is that you're never likely to find yourself eating alone early in the evening. Several different menus to choose from so, for once, it took me ages... More

Had a pre theatre meal here in January 2015. It was a very busy Saturday evening and the place was full of families. I had the liver which was the best I have ever tasted. Waiter very friendly and helpful. Good gluten free menu.

I have been to a number of the other Carluccio's but this was my first time at the one opposite South Kensington tube station. Its location makes it a very busy place so getting tables is not always possible during lunchtime especially ... Anyway the staff are efficient and helpful and there is a good menu selection available. Lunch for... More

We visited Carluccio's with a Vouchercloud 241 voucher. The food was delivered quickly, and was very well presented. We had to ask for the black pepper after it was offered, as the server didn't come back. We had the risotto special, which was delicious. The voucher meant the price was very good too.

Just another Carlucci's, but a nice place to take refuge after a long day tramping round art galleries and museums. We shared a bottle of wine, a bowl of olives and a cheese board - all very good. The one down side was that the staff were a bit pushy, wanting us to order more than we did - it... More
