I suppose Carluccio's is only really worth 4 stars, but it's so good at being a four star restaurant that I feel that it deserves five for the purpose of this review. I have dinned here many times and I guess the quality does fluctuate a bit. That said, as of late, I have had nothing but good food. Added... More

Food was good standard Italian, on par with others in the area, but the service was excellent! We had 2 waiters both of whom were attentive friendly and polite. Nothing was too much trouble. Suffice to say I left a tip that rewarded the great service, I hope it goes to the guys who worked for it.

We had the fixed price menu- I got a tiny bowl of pasta which was considerably more al dente than it should have been and my Bloody Mary looked and tasted like it had been watered down. His escalope milanese was overcooked to the point of being leathery and the "Summer Garden" drink (basically apple juice and lemonade and possibly... More

My husband and I were greeted and seated quickly. We shared an Insalata di Mozzarella starter, a wonderful blend of cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, rocket and capers, topped with olive oil. The capers gave a surprising savory accent. We continued our sharing by ordering the three pasta sharing menu where we opted for Ravioli, Penne alla Luganica and Lobster Spaghetti.... More

My husband & I ate here recently on a Saturday night. After being given menus, we then waited 20 minutes for someone to take our drink/food order. Starter arrived, just mixed breads, well you can't get that wrong. Our mains then arrived 5 minutes after our starter, which we were still eating. I then had to go & find cutlery... More

A fun place to be ,any time of day either for coffee and pastries, a leisurely lunch or lingering evening meal .Staff are frequently international ,well-trained ,attentive and friendly....A cosmopolitan touch and lively atmosphere all conjure up memories of Italy. The food is delicious and whether you are "al fresco " or inside the restaurant, the surroundings are conducive to... More

We were here for double espressos which we found dIsappointing. Too much liquid meaning there was no crema and a dilution of flavour. I would have expected a lot more from an Italian based restaurant. Service was not so good as it was morning, few customers but I had to go looking for a waiter in order to pay!

An interesting menu card, I ordered calves liver, and received liver with a strong vinegar smell; and this makes me rather suspicious, as liver just needs to be cooked in butter, without any further fuss, so why bother with vinegar? When my daughter chose her dish, she asked if she could get it without anchovies, and was answered that it... More
