Our third visit whilst visiting in Sussex. Noisy, brash, exciting, energising. You name it, that's what Carluccios is. We know we're going to get a warm welcome, great service and exciting food. We opted this time for the delux cold platter and white wine and enjoyed every mouthful. We finished with their speciality ice cream with a slug of amaretto... More

At approximately 12:35 on Wednesday 3rd December 2014 my wife and I went to this restaurant for the first time. We looked around for a minute and then asked at the bar about seating and were told to "just sit anywhere". We opted for a two person table leaving the four person and eight person tables for larger groups. We... More

A very pleasant evening with some decent food. With my wife's family coming from Tuscany we know what Italian food is like back home... And a 'chain' is going to find it hard to capture that every time. However, this gets close with some authentic flavours and atmosphere.

Along with friends we went to Carluccio's "Opera Evening" on the 30th Nov 14. It was BRILLIANT. There were 3 singers, Hannah Kirk, Philip O'Brien & Trevor Alexander accompanied by Peter Crockford on the piano and they produced some amazing entertainment throughout the almost 4 hour evening. For just £35 per person we had a glass of bubbles on arrival,... More

We went for a Saturday lunch and everything was fine. The service is friendly and they do not hassle you. Nice, relaxing lunch in a very busy restaurant. It is noisy when full, so if you are after a quiet intimate time, this isn't the place.

I am a huge fan of Carluccios and had not visited the Chichester branch before. I visited with my partner for a pre theatre meal on a very wet November night when it was so nice to get to a warm well lit restaurant. We had booked a table and were able to choose where to sit. The service was... More

We essentially paid a lot of money to eat salt, salt and more salt! Massively disappointing food. Anaemic calamari, chewy steak, very bland ravioli. A group of 18 of us ate here, we won't return!

Being a coeliac Italian restaurants can always be a bit of a challenge however Carluccio's was fully geared up for my special diet with a separate menu. I ordered the sea bass with zucchini and it was wonderful, cooked to perfection. The only thing I would say is if you have a normal to large appetite remember to order a... More

My wife and I had eaten at this resturant several times in the past, the staff were always nice and the food good. However on our last visit the menu had changed, your favourite starer had been split into two meals. I requested if it could be re-combined as it was one of the key factors in our decision to...

Very pleased by our first visit here. We could pick where we wanted to sit rather than just being shown to where the staff would like you to be seated. The restaurant was fairly busy but we did not have to wait very long for our drinks and then the food. We had some brochettes but one was hot, the... More
