I met a fair few of my girlfriends here after work for a birthday meal- which we'd had planned for a while, wanted somwhere 'decent' so agreed on Carluccios...what a mistake that was. The service is what really dampened our evening to be honest. The lady on the restaurant floor was pleasant, quiet but polite. However the gentleman who served... More

I took my wife out for her birthday. We ordered the regular menu with pro secco. Little did we realise that we would end up wearing it! The waiter dropped it and a jug of water over both of us, mainly me. The rest of the staff dealt with the situation well, but the meal was spoiled because of my... More

We have eaten at Carluccio's on many occassions, always for a lunch at the weekend when they are very busy. The quality of the food is always consistently good, the service is always friendly (even when they are rushed off their feet). We had lunch there last Saturday, 2 courses, I had calamari and then goats cheese salad (delicious and... More

We use either Carluccios or Cafe Rouge when in the (Norwich) city. They are opposite each other at the entrance to the Chapelfield Centre. Our last visit to CR was a disaster so went to C's this time. Excellent venison tortellini and creat liver beautifully cooked, with drinks and coffee £27 with the offer. We rarely get offers from C's... More

The calves liver was very nice, the lobster spaghetti, may have had traces of lobster in, the rest was crayfish. Had we not have had our second meal for a £1 offer this would have been unacceptable. The Peroni was served in an ice cold glass and the staff were friendly and efficient.

Called in after a shopping trip. Shared a starter of own bread with oil and vinegar- superb. Main meals were very tasty too. Service was prompt, friendly and unpressured.
