Very average Italian restaurant - we thought it would be a lot better. My husband had to send his starter back (sardines) as they hadn't been cooked properly they were almost raw and had lots of bones in. But we did not have to pay for these as the manager agreed they hadn't been cooked right.

A real shame. We had enjoyed a meal here last year, and were looking forward to doing so again. The food was just as good and the waiters were working their socks off (we had no complaint about them) BUT we spent most of the time watching other tables waiting anxiously for their food, while we waited anxiously for ours....

Stopping here is essential if you are an international traveler and need good coffee. The service is good too. Friendly and professional staff.

Had a great lunch here on Saturday - good food but the staff are exceptional. I have been searching for semolina flour and couldn't find it anywhere. When I mentioned this at Carluccios on Saturday they very kindly gave me some from the kitchen. Excellent service. Thank you.

We had a great meal there. Very good pasta, nice Kids Menu, good wine, great environment and very friendly staff. If you go to Stratford-upon-Avon this is a place to eat. I do recommend.

Visited on very busy Saturday evening when the restaurant was packed. However, we were seated at the bar and asked to wait for ten minutes. In less time than that a table was prepared for us. The place was noisy and there was an air of everyone having a good time. The food came promptly and was delicious. My mushroom... More

Service was ok..ish. Bit slow considering the place was quite empty. Coffee was terrific. The water glasses were very scratched from washing- to the point they looked stained/used/old Staff were very accommodating for difficult customers and made changes to dishes on request. Food was roughly ok but quite over priced; there are far, far better places to eat but if... More

Visited on a Saturday night, which was a very busy day/evening in Stratford and the restaurant was very busy but that didn't seem to cause any problems. We were seated quickly and drinks that were ordered came quickly too. The service was good and the food was lovely..........I had the seafood risotto and I never normally eat this when I... More
