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.

Had better pasta at home. It came with a sauce but you would hardly be able to tell but there was a small amount of stodge on the bottom of the bowl. The garlic bread was expensive for basically 2 slices of toast. Left feeling hungry, should have gone next door to the well known chicken restaurant! Will not be... More

Had a very warm welcome at Carluccio's last night. Bread and olives to start, bread left a bit to be desired and the oil & vinegar was rather bitter. I ordered the venison tortelloni, which was very tasty but a small portion with not a lot to it (literally just a dish with some tortelloni in it, and not very... More

After experiencing a terrible lunch in another establishment, we felt we deserved compensation so we found Carluccio's and treated ourselves. It was so warm and inviting. Service was prompt and Edward, our waiter, was very attentive and helpful in describing the different desserts available. Our Torta al Cioccolato was out of this world. The waiters were constantly on the move... More

My internet connection had crashed and I had a really important business meeting the next day. I drove to Carluccios - we do go there quite often, especially on a Saturday morning before going to the market - to ask if I could use their free wi-fi to research what I needed for my meeting. I could not have been... More

We go to Carluccios from time to time as it usually has space, the service is good (on the whole) and the food is well cooked. The only disadvantage is that the menu is limited so you can get bored. This branch is well kept and the service is good, if not outstanding.

Had a lovely breakfast to fortify us for the Bury Christmas Fayre; I had scrambled eggs with wild mushrooms on toasted ciabatta. beautifully seasoned, delicious. my husband had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on toast, also lovely. would have given top marks if the tea had been served in a pot rather than two mugs of hot water with tea...

I come here regularly with my family for either a lunch or evening meal. So far every time we have been we have experienced excellent service from staff and wonderful food that caters to people who are on a Gluten free diet as they have a whole Gluten free menu that you can chose from. The atmosphere is always welcoming... More
