We have not been here for ages. Parking is handy. Possibility to sit outside if you wish. Very good deli attached. We ordered the platter for 2/3 to share and it was excellent. Something was excessively spicy which was a problem for me. The variety was excellent and we would have this again. Do... read more

I have to agree with the people here who say this place has gone downhill. We visited for lunch for my birthday as it's previously been one of my favourites... The staff seemed to have changed and they were messing around laughing with each other rather than serving customers. I choose the Panzanella which was a special despite it being... More

One of the drawbacks of having to follow a gluten free diet is that although an increasing number of restaurants offer GF options, the choice can be limited in some cases to just one or two items. Not so at Carluccio's which a full page of GF options. My favourites on two recent visits - the Bruschettina (tomato and onion... More

Looks good, in a good position, good service, but the food ..... can't quite put my finger on it, but its not memorable, quite "samey" and bland. Ate the pate, not very firm,again bland taste, followed by a pasta dish with a sausage sauce, nothing special. I have had tastier pastas in cheaper establishments. In my opinion overpriced for the...

The decor is nice and unusual. There is a place to eat outside in summer. The staff are very attentive and friendly. Unfortunately the food is disappointing and the main meal looks like a starter size wise.

My husband & I have eaten here several times though not for several months. Shocked at the most recent visit. Service good as always, despite not being particularly welcoming or friendly. To say the portions are meagre is an understatement. Starters & mains not even an average portion. Many mains only include the meat & potato of some sort -... More

The venue lacked atmosphere although was still very busy. Whilst we stopped for lunch a return is not on the cards. The menu was somewhat limited and surprisingly for an Italian restaurant pizza didn't feature. The food, whilst well prepared, lacked presentation and is priced on the high side. Service was quick with adequate staffing. With the number of eateries... More

This visit was early evening before a trip to the Theatre. Having booked on line and indicated one of the party was in a wheelchair we arrived to find our table prepared with room for the wheelchair which makes a great difference in that we do not disrupt other diners and feel less self concious...well done and thanks. The menu... More

Been to other Carluccio restaurants but always think this is the nicest. The staff are attentive and friendly. Food was great. I had the Mozzarella salad to start, followed by one of the seasonal specials, Asparagus Risotto. Delicious in both cases. It's always busy Saturday lunchtimes so there was plenty of atmosphere. The small shop area at the entrance is... More
