Having tried Brasserie Blanc the previous evening, Carluccio's was a big disappointment. Staff are friendly and attentive but the food is very lacklustre and it feels more like a caff than a restaurant. Prices are similar to Blanc's but the experience is nothing likes as good.

I went here last night for my birthday with my friends and we had an excellent time. The service was great, the food was fantastic. It wasn't overly busy(which I think is a good thing). The atmosphere was perfect. Nothing was to much trouble as I have an intolerance to egg. We all had 3 courses each course was lovely... More

Busy restaurant, but they found us a table without any bother. Good staff. Hearty Italian food, which went down well on a cold night. Generous helpings and a friendly atmosphere. Very conveniently located just at the end of East Street. We went back on another night and found it just as good.

This restaurant gets very busy on a Saturday but, fortunately ,we had booked in advance. The service was excellent. We ate from the fixed price menu, as on previous occasions, and the food was very good. Overall great value for money. We will return!

Visited this restaurant for breakfast on a Saturday. Three members of staff looked at my girlfriend and I blankly, before the fourth told us we could sit where we wanted. After sitting at a table we placed a drinks order; so far so good. The drinks were delivered by another member of staff with barely a word spoken, certainly not... More

My husband was a bit taken aback by the scenario, but I reminded him that it was Italian style restaurant and the food soon mollified him about the lack of table cloths. It's a bit noisy, I found. The food was delicious - he really enjoyed the chicken liver pate and I thought that the warm goat's cheese, onion and... More
