Yes back to Carluccios before a visit to Royal Albert Hall but this time with a young baby and buggy in tow (nooo, he wasn't coming with us, just out for his first night on the town aged 3 months :)) so online booking requesting quick service, table for 6 with space for buggy, oh and could we use our...

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

We waited 30 minutes to order drinks, which didn't arrive until after our food. The food was delicious and great value, however, the unbelievably terribly service really spoiled the evening. Wouldn't return in a hurry.

It´s usually noisy but very lively. The food is great and the lasagne traditionale is exceptional. Pleasant setting.

I view Carluccio's as upmarket cafe food, no offence to Mr C. This is where you come to eat, as opposed to dine. I came twice in the week before Christmas which is when everyone is eating before or after shopping, so it's mega-busy. My food came quickly, and was hot and tasty - pasta con funghi and, on the...

There was none I often look around the other tables when going into a restaurant as if there is not much food served its a reliable warning. On this occasion I didn't like what I saw and was further concerned because of the number of empty tables that had not been tidied wiped down and re set. We went for... More

Popped in here late on a Saturday evening at the end of November (after the theatre) with 6 friends. Although it was nearly 11.30pm and pretty full with office parties, the staff managed to squeeze a couple of tables together in order to accommodate the 8 of us and let us know that the kitchen stopped cooking at midnight. We... More

We found this restaurant on our first evening whilst wandering around South Kensington looking for food. Our search was slightly complicated as one of our party has a gluten allergy. We had all but given up until i asked a gentleman who was Italian if there was a good restaurant and he recommended Carluccios. It is tucked away at end... More

That may be a strange observation to make about an Italian restaurant, but this 'South Ken' spot is part of my grounding ritual when landing from New York. In early December, the doorway was bouncing with a festive crowd. I was apologetic (a) about not booking and (b) arriving 30 minutes early for lunch with my daughter. The young greeter... More
