Good place for lunch

We only live 5 minutes' walk from this restaurant and, because one of us was recuperating from an operation, did not want to walk very far. Despite living so close we had never been to Carluccio's so this was an excellent opportunity to try it. We were not disappointed. The restaurant was quite... read more

We love Carluccio's and regularly eat at the Lincoln branch. What a shame Norwich doesn't seem to care about customer service. We visited at 3.15pm on February 11th. It was really quiet, and we waited to be seated. Two staff were busy chatting, one was sorting cutlery and one doing nothing in particular. We waited. And waited. And waited. And... More

Took my granddaughter here for treat and I would say the food was very average! I had Carbonara and my wife had a special, it arrived within 4 minutes of being ordered so unlikely it was freshly cooked! It was far from piping hot. The couple on the next table had an all day breakfast and the lady complained her... More

Went for lunch midweek. My first time eating at a Carluccio's restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. I had the steak and rosemary potatoes with a glass of house red followed by the chocolate bread and butter pudding which was so good. Price was acceptable. Service prompt and friendly. I will return.

Was so excited to go to Antonio Carluccio's resturant and my daughter and I were not disappointed. Such a fan of the two greedy Italians so really wanted to sample the chefs food. Only had the lunch as we were shopping at the same time, but it was delicious , very fresh and tasty and the staff were very attentive... More

Walked in and did not book but then there was no need, with plenty of tables free. Not many tables for couples and the one we had against a column was not ideal but then there was not much to choose from. We decided to share a starter which was the mackerel pate. This was a mistake because there was... More

We have visited this branch of Carluccio's many times, usually for breakfast as their version of eggs benedict is great. Yesterday I decided to try the fish stew rather than the pasta I usually choose if we go for lunch. It was absolutely delicious. I always use to have the fish stew in another well known chain nearby but they... More

Booked for a birthday / pre theatre treat. I recently went to the bury St Edmunds branch and they had no issue amending my meal to suit however here they couldn't due to "cost" ??? I didn't think this chain were the sort to exactly pre portion but clearly norwich is. The starters were not great, literally half a teaspoon... More

In the centre of Norwich off the Mall with a whole load of chain restaurants. Carluccio's always serve good Italian food but don't go if you expect a Topo Gigio meal or Heinz 57 Spaghetti. Its pasta as the main constituent of the meal not a bucket of sauce. We had the three main pastas for the price of two... More
