We first discovered Carluccio's in Oxford many years ago and have since continued to have meals there in both our home town and when we were staying in Chelsea recently. The South Kensington restaurant seemed always to be busy whenever we passed the windows and not just with tourists which we felt was a good sign. We enjoyed our meal... More

We had the three course set menu and everything was absolutely delicious. The restaurant was bright, cheery, cosy and welcoming on a freezing cold day. The restaurant was buzzing with people and we were never made to feel rushed.Just what we needed after a day of sightseeing around London. The staff were also welcoming, helpful, polite and courteous. Will definitely... More

The waiter who served us was very obliging. The food was truly a pleasure for our meeting with our relatives and a friend. The place was real cozy.

This is not a romantic Italian restaurant; more a place to go with the family, as it is light and large. Excellent quality food for very reasonable prices considering this is central London. Good, reasonably priced wines as well.

Visited this restaurant this evening with my husband and two young children after a day out to the nearby Science Museum. As we got in the restaurant just before 6 pm,one of the waiting staff, who met us at the entrance,told us it was going to take 10-15 mins for us to be seated. The restaurant was half full but...

Popped in here for a quick lunch before a meeting. Had 90 minutes to spare so thought that would be sufficient. How wrong we were! After siting us down in a not too busy restaurant the waiter took our orders for drinks and disappeared. When the drinks appeared 10 minutes later the order for food was given. Then we waited...

Four of us ate here and found the menu really exciting and varied. Service good, bit slow but ok. And I've never been the fan of their layouts as they like to wrap tables tight to central columns for some reason. Its a big chain, but every Carluccios I've been to has the same style. But the menu is worth... More

Went here today as a family of 5 with 3 small children . Had to practically beg to be served. Asked for bill 3 times. Shame as it was an early lunch at 11.45 so they were not busy and had loads of staff ( so no excuses) . Food was good though.
