For a quick Italian you get good service and fresh pasta

We have been here a couple of times, and as a lover of Italian food this place serves simple, good , fresh Italian food. Great environment and as someone with kids it's great that they cater for children. Good choice on the set menus. We have had the sharing pasta where you can choose 4 dishes... read more

I can't recommend this restaurant enough, friendly staff and superb food! Having read some of the previous reviews I was dubious in visiting but it excelled in every way! Crispy calamari, perfectly cooked pasta and a panna cotta to die for! All delivered by a charming young boy called JD. Fantastic!

we went there for breakfast today and we're pleased that they catered for gluten free people, it's just a shame we weren't both wanting a gluten free breakfast as my sister in laws breakfast was lovely and mine was a big disappointment. I had crepes with fruit and yoghurt, the crepes most probably were nice but with loads of natural... More

We came as a large group of 7 and would have thought it would be a good opportunity for a waiter to get some good tips. But this defiantly wasn't the case. We seem more of a inconvenience right from the beginning. Our waiter was probably one of the most unfriendly grumpy people that has ever served us. We had... More

We often shop in Chapelfield, Norwich and find that Carluccios is a great place to stop for a lunch and glass of wine. The staff are great. Well trained and attentive. Families are made to feel very welcome and the waiting staff make the effort to interact with children, which is nice. Not the kind of restaurant to visit for... More

I enjoyed breakfast here early on a Saturday morning. It is so convenient and there were lots of options for breakfast. They have a good selection of hot drinks, I think it would be a fantastic place to meet up with friends for coffee or a light lunch. It doesn't have the right atmosphere for a special or romantic evening... More

if you don't have one of the extensive voucher schemes issued for this place then you are paying too much! its reasonably located and its a clean restaurant with reasonable service. the food is OK but really nothing that special. its ok but don't expect anything memorable. personally i prefer it when a restaurant has a simple transparent pricing structure...

Apart from the very good food, I like Carluccio's because they make no fuss about accommodating my wheelchair. Generally, Italian and steak aren't put together but the rib-eye was excellent, cooked as ordered, a fairly uncommon thing in provincial England.

I have reviewed this Carluccio's several times in the past, and stopped doing so as I thought I had left enough reviews. But having read the recent negative reviews, I felt I had to redress the balance. We eat here very regularly. At least once a month, usually more. Only once in all the years since it opened have we... More

We hadn't researched this restaurant as we'd planned to eat elsewhere, only to find our choice was closed so we went to the Chaplefield Mall and had to make a choice between a number of eating options. Unfortunately we chose Carluccio's, as we were very disappointed,both with the food and the service. The sardines had not been fully de-boned, and... More
