We went for lunch just wanted light bite really, took for ever to seat us at a table when clearly nearly all tables were free, once seated we were forgotten other tables all attended to and we had to ask for a waitress to take our order to which we then had to wait yet again while they decided whose...

As a lover of the rich, homely tastes of Italian food I can't say I was very impressed with the restaurant. I chose a simple classic 'lasagne' something that is hard to get wrong! It was very bland and greasy and I did not eat much of it. The flavours in the food did not reflect in the price I... More

We booked a table for 8pm and when we arrived we were told the people on our table weren't leaving so we had to hang around a bit waiting. The table we were given was quite crammed in the back but ok. Drinks order taken fairly quickly but took a little while to come. The staff seemed in quite a... More

We wanted to get some lunch before visiting the cinema. What a good choice. We had the fixed price menu and found the choice good (wife is vegetarian) and good value for money. Most of all we really appreciated the service. Attentive from start to finish, very friendly without being overwhelming. Everything arrived promptly, hot and food very good. Bright,... More

Family lunch on a Sunday soon after Christmas so thank you for being open when many are closed. Have always wanted to try a Carluccio's, impressed by Italian deli at entrance, pleasant welcoming attentive staff. Food good but not great, I suspect problem is that it's a chain so they have the menu to do rather than what's fresh and... More

We love visiting Italy so understandably love this restaurant. We have had shared deluxe antipasto several times and different pasta dishes. Lovely outside in Summer pavement cafe and good in winter inside. Good service and good food.

I had high hopes, especially as the famous chef is so skilled and affable. Italian food, the food of love, they say. Not a lot of love going on here. I did keep going and trying to get that 'Mama's good cookin' feel, however......, sorry Antonio C. Itsa nota happeninn

Dismal dining experience, restaurant had no atmosphere for saying its Xmas and staff really miserable even the manager. The food was poor quality and over priced and after spending over £78 for 2 children 2 adults with only 2 soft drinks felt ripped off and left the restaurant starving. Two meals had to be returned . Never again.
