We decided, just on a whim, to have lunch in Stratford on a wintery day when doing anything else was just too cold! The restaurant was very crowded (we should have booked) but they managed to fit us in a corner and the service was still attentive despite the fact that they were very busy. The food was good, even... More

Mid January tried to book a table at last minute before Shakespere show no tables, turned up after the show and stood inline .....table found! Lovely restaurant, great service and food was very good. Overall worth a visit!

On a cold but sunny January Friday my wife and I sought somewhere for lunch in Stratford upon Avon. We settled upon Carluccio's. Given the time of the year and the cold we were mildly surprised to find the restaurant full and we had a short wait for a table. The restaurant is situated in a prime location in Stratford... More

Love this restaurant and usually visit this one at least once a year when visiting friends in Birmingham. I nearly always choose the same main course, Penne Giardiniera, which I adore as did one of my friends - this time I had the Roated Parsnip Soup with their delicious Foccacia to start and finished with Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding...

Easy location, in the heart of Stratford and ideal for the RSC Theatre. I met a business colleague for a quick evening meal. The restaurant has had a recent refurb making it more welcoming and adding some seating space. It was busy at 6.30pm on a January Wednesday evening even without there being any plays on at the RSC. As... More

For main course I ordered the Ravioli.and my wife the Chicken breast. At the time of ordering we were asked if we wanted any side dishes and we requested some garlic... More

Me and my partner like the deli so decided to try the restaurant.. HUGE mistake.. bread & olives to start, fine but nothing special, onto the mains.. Literally within 2 minutes of our order being taken the food had arrived, so clearly not fresh cooked. I could have made it better myself at home. Disappointing.

I had an early supper with a friend and because of its proximity to the RSC it was jam packed with pre theatre diners but by 7.15 it was deserted. Tables very close and it's noisy when busy. However the food is authentic and reasonable and the service quick. This was spoiled by our waitress who tried to rush us... More

We went for a pre Theatre dinner having booked a table On arrival we were shown to a table stuck out on a corner, out in the aisle and next to the coat rack. I asked if we could have another table but we were met with a 'sigh' (Waitress with attitude, great start) and eventually a no!! Needless to... More

We only popped in for a drink. the entranc is half shop, half restaurant with no indication as to whether to seat yourself or be seated. Everyone who came in after us seemed unsure and staff often had to round people up and and stop them seating themselves at tables that were waiting to be cleared for other customers already... More
