Delightful lunch, charming staff

Dropped in for a late lunch last Saturday and were offered a nice window table. Our meal was excellent - delicious ravioli, light crispy calamari with home made mayo, washed down with a very quaffable house red. Sonya and Richard made our visit all the more enjoyable - so thanks to them especially.

Last time here about three months ago when it was totally amazing and I am shocked at how fast this has gone down the drain. They seam to have changed the menu, not for the better I should add. Why couldn't they just leave what worked alone? All the staff seem to have changed as before the place was stunningly... More

We eat regularly at Carluccio's branches as a safe, comfortable and reliable choice. Today we had Sea Bass; it was relatively expensive for a very small portion, with limited salad. Slightly dry at the edges. Fortunately i had a tomato salad with it, but even so the meal was barely enough. I miss the mixed sea food platter. There was... More

Visited with a friend for lunch and the service we very good and efficient, unfortunately the food was not up to what I would expect. I had the Branzino - Pan fried sea bass fillets served with a salad of rocket, tomato salsa and barley. The fish seemed over cooked and though you for two fillets, one was so lacking... More

I took my children out for dinner tonight as a treat and having had excellent food and service previously I thought it would be a good choice of restaurant. How wrong could I be? The waitress that greeted us in a warm and attentive manner was not to be our waitress for the meal. Our waitress was surly and seemed... More

A lovely warm welcome at Carluccio's. My family and I had a lovely meal in a bustling atmosphere. The options for vegetarians was very good and the quality of the food was of a high standard. We were also served by possibly the most helpful and charming waitress that we've had the pleasure of meeting. A good meal was had... More

Call me old fashioned, but I always thought that the steak should be one of the best things on the menu. Especially as it's one of the more expensive. My medium rare cut followed a GF mushroom soup that was large, hot and excellent (no cream), but the steak was just tough and gristly. My party raved about the food,... More
