Delicious lunch, friendly atmosphere

3 of us had a set menu lunch, and 1 of us had food off the main menu. All food was delicious and well presented. Service was friendly and efficient, we did not feel rushed, and we're able to take our time (2.5 hours!) slightly expensive, but nice for a change.

Took the children to get a bite to eat for their tea after a long hot day in Norwich. They chose from the kids menu so they had Grissini & a drink to start then proceeded to have Cheese and ham melt, this was an absolute joke, they received two small pieces of what I would call French stick bread...

Poor service .. Pastries came before the drinks and had finished them when the coffees arrived... Greeted at the table with 'guys' not acceptable , not greeted at the door or taken to a table and was unsure if it was self service? When I asked got a blunt someone will be with you and no eye contact... Not good... More

Have just been for a lunch out at Carluccios in Norwich. We had one of the best waiters I have ever had to serve us. His name was Nigel and he was so helpful and this made us feel very looked after. The food was lovely and I will definitely be returning. Definitely recommend as it was 10/10!!

Visited today and was lucky enough to be served by Jay.....a great member of staff with a fantastic personality and sense of humour, got the balance just right between being attentive and not over bearing.....perfect. I had the lobster spaghetti which was absolutely delicious while my mother had chicken liver pâté and the panne cotta from the chefs specials which... More

Visited first hot evening of July. Nice table outside nice vibe. The food was average , salad very tired as must have been the waiter as we hardly saw him. Chose ice cream to finish -two flavours unavailable? In July either ordering wrong or very busy. In their favour we did get complimentary coffees after a very dry tiramisu. The... More

This is in a great location, easy to find and some very nice surroundings, the waiting staff are pleasant and easy to get their attention, the food menu is rather limited but erfectly fine for a spot of lunch. It is rather expensive though.

My wife and I regularly eat at Carluccios, situated at the entrance of the Chaplefield Mall. Authentic Italian cooking. Excellent menus and regular changes. The Grandioso platter is to die for with a brilliant twinned serving of meats and antipasti. My favourite pasta is their lasagne, soft, rich and banging with meat....brilliant. Steaks, calves liver, are all of equally great... More

Good service, not rushed but not too slow as to be irritating. I had no problems with my wheelchair and they were very accomodating. We had the sharing platter which was full of little hors d'oeuvers. Some were good and some not so good. Most came from a jar and the cooked prawns had been well overcooked. My main course... More

I find it difficult to choose any other restaurant if I'm in Norwich - it never disappoints. They teat me in my wheelchair as perfectly normal which is something I appreciate.
