We visited at 4pm, one of the few restaurants in town that was open. Our choices were from the fixed price menu and both starter and main course were more than acceptable being a little more adventurous than most other bistros of this kind. Service was excellent, and with a smile. Due to a mistake I made in adding up... More

6 of us had lunch here, without booking, on Saturday 10th January. It was very busy when we arrived but they managed to look after us, without making it appear a problem. Service was quick and efficient and food tasted fresh. The only slight negative I would have is that, if we had not had a Vouchercloud offer, it would... More

Carluccio's endures much like berlusconi did in Italian politics.....full of bravado and the ability to face comments of poor service and bad food. I decided to eat at the Chichester branch on Saturday 10th January and this was after the lunch rush. The restaurant was not busy. The staff were trying hard...but unfortunately in more ways than one. Orders were... More

We went for a lunch at Carluccio's today and had a lovely meal! Excellent service, attentive without being overbearing, fast delivery of the food and good value for money.

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
