A welcome return

Came here again for dinner and it was just as good as I remember it before. All the Carluccio restaurants are of a style with the decor and have a slight "canteen" look about them but that's not a look that particularly bothers me. Staff were nice. I went for the chicken risotto special which... read more

Carluccio's is a nice relaxed place to eat, great quality food and lovely service, the set menus are excellent value and great for a quick choice lunch. We liked the tapas starters where you get 3 small plates for £10, which we shared between 2. My daughter loves the sea food choices too.

Must be a couple of years since we visited this Cafe, as our last experience wasn't very good. However, this time we enjoyed prompt service, delicious coffees, and an utterly scrumptious almond croissant. And at a reasonable cost too! Although it was summer school holiday time, not very busy, and we noticed people able to eat or drink outside with... More

I love Italian food and tried carluccio's 2 years or so ago and thought it was amazing. So I decided to take my sister for her birthday. I used to love it in there because of the authentic Italian feel but immediately being greeted by impatient English staff that didn't know where to find their list of bookings then told... More

First time we had been to one of the Carluccio's and was somewhat disappointed. Not a great deal of 'atmosphere' in the place, probably due to the location. Service was OK, but it didn't look as if tables were being cleared for some time after customers had left. Food was pretty average, had expected much better. Seems to be suffering... More

Our lunchtime visit to Carluccios was saved from being mundane by the waiting staff. The menu is what one expects, delivered quickly but without much flair. The waiter, however, was superb. He was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and definitely deserves his own accolade - it's just a shame that he's leaving soon to go back to uni! Carluccios have excellent nutritional... More

Went there for dinner this evening. We've been several times and know what we're getting. I am a coeliac so know that they are good with gluten free food. This evening we were lucky enough to be able to sit outside on a lovely warm evening. We ordered a bottle of prosecco. We then had to ask for an ice... More

Well known national chain, sadly by occupying modern shopping centre unit you could be eating in a Little Chef. The staff were very friendly & helpful but with the best will in the world the atmosphere is sterile. Despite having famous chef names behind the brand several of the dishes were almost unrecognisable to anyone who has enjoyed the real... More
