This was our first visit to Carluccios, we went at 5.00pm after a show at the Theatre Royal. The restaurant was virtually empty when we arrived, but much fuller by the time we left. Staff were very friendly and helpful without being pushy, and the food was freshly cooked and very tasty. One problem was that out of the four... More

went t carluccio's for the first time last night. The calamari starter was really good and the bruschetta too ( but £5.50 per slice is robbery). We followed with pasta dishes and - both were excellent. The service was very friendly. Thank you carluccio's

I have eaten in Carluccios many times & never had anything that wasn't good quality and reasonably authentic Italian. The long cut ham is especially good & the soups excellent in winter. The pasta dishes are excellent and reasonably priced. The coffee is probably the best on offer locally & they do an excellent cocktail with Lemonata & prosecco. A... More

We had absolutely bad experience with Carluccio in Norwich. Poor service, everything runs like in the conveyer belt, without proper care and feeling. Although it was a busy day, but you always expecting a good service with a good brand name. But not in this place, our waiter was with disgusting dirty nails, everyone were so in a hurry like...

Called in with friends (party of 8) without a booking on a busy Saturday. We were lucky enough to get a table and no delays on kitchen (unlike next door where we were told there was an hour wait for food). We chose to eat from the "set" lunch menu, most of us having two courses. Service was friendly and... More

Visited with my husband and son. The food is always good, we can rarely fault it. We've visited many branches all over the UK. The service in the Norwich branch however, left a lot to be desired. I can't deny our waiter was friendly, his name was Luke. However he was also a master at looking busy but actually doing... More

We use to go here regular but recently did not find it quite as good. Part of a chain so we know what to expect from the menu, it perhaps depends upon which chef is cooking as to the quality of the food. Sometimes the food is good, other times it has been disappointing.

We popped into Carluccio's for a coffee and some of their delicious-looking Italian biscuits. It was a really quiet Wednesday afternoon with only a few other tables there and lots of staff. We were told to seat ourselves, only to find most of the tables were dirty. Upon ordering, we ordered a cappuccino and a mint tea and biscotti. The... More

Not a fan of 'chain' restaurants but always had a bit of a soft spot for carluccios. Always great food and good value for money Attended this one after a threatre performance at the theatre royal, which is a 5-10 minute walk away. Wouldn't normally leave a review for a 'chain' such as this one, but service really was above... More

My first visit here was a pleasant one, we came for coffee and and tried the strawberries with balsamic vinegar with mint which were delicious. All the tables had candles on which added to the nice atmosphere. I would definitely go back, the cake in the front of the shop look lovely :-)
