Friendly and efficient staff. Restaurant clean,well laid out, and a pleasant temperature. Good selection on the menu, enough choice to suit everybody, including children. Plus point children's food was served quickly and at the right temperature so they could eat as soon as it was placed in the table. We were all happy with our food and the service. Will... More

I normally don't go out to Italian food being I find it easy to make at home. Went here with friends. Liked the cocktail options. I had an appetiser salad with warm goat cheese and vension tortellini with a light dusting of cheese. Really light n tasty. Overall a pleasant and appreciated meal.

A wet and windy January Sunday evening saw us as the only diners! Now when there are more staff than customers you have a right to expect hot food and good service - which is what we got. The pasta main dishes were delicious and went down well with a quality bottle of Montepulciano.

Our starters were both appalling. Mushroom and pancetta soup, with four (yes I counted them) small scrapings of pancetta that were 90% rind, plus a goats cheese starter that was so small my husband had eaten it in around 30 seconds. Mains were good, wine was their winter special which at 6.95 for a small glass we had fairly high... More

Came for a pre theatre snack. Service was slow but the main issue was with the linguine with mussels. Half way through eating the dish my partner noticed one of the mussels was only half open, the mussel it contained was black and the shell was swimming with dirt. He was obviously concerned that the juices contained within this truly... More

My only complaint would be the noise of moving chairs around on wooden floors. I know hard floors are fashionable and probably more hygenic but the noise when the restaurant is busy is quite distracting. Oh! I forgot - no profiteroles! On the positive side, the food is reliable and the service is good.

We visited Carluccio's for a quick bite which was also a first outing with our newborn. The service was quick and efficient and there was reasonable room for the pushchair and my partner was comfortable breastfeeding.

Too many points to write about so will bullet point them! 1) Got a half empty jug of water, waiter topped up another tables water then dumped the jug on our table. 2) Beware of the set menu, they will offer extras which you think come with the food then charge you for them. 3) Stay away from the pear...

Good food, as always, but the experience spoiled by receptions! Having booked a table for lunch, the staff seemed more interested in each other than greeting customers . Having been advised that our chosen table had not yet been laid and asked to wait, we were then shown to a table that had clearly been laid some hours previously! Not... More
