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 :-)

Love the atmosphere, the service can be a bit hit and miss but if you are not in a hurry it's fine. Food is very good, not had a bad meal, although it can lean towards the mean side of its portions! It's in a great location and always has a good buzz about it. Good value for money.

For a "famous name" brand the food is simply not good enough! We have sampled lunch in the London restaurant and this was much better (competition in London is very keen). So is Norwich really seriously striving for culinary excellence? Perhaps a good average is what is being sought, although, to be fair, standards across several venues can be difficult... More

Just incredible - staff fantastic, service quick and friendly. Only too happy to help. Tiramisu is one of the most amazing dishes in the world and has to be Number One recipe and is very well made here...

We popped in for our anniversary lunch after seeing the giant meringues in the window. We were very quickly shown to a table and seated. A waitress quickly came to take out orders when we hadn't had enough time to read but she took drinks orders and then came back. Service was great and when I asked about a dish... More
