The King of Restaurant Chains

How tiring are restaurant chains, generally lack lustre and dull with poor quality food, leaving you wishing you hadn't spent the money. Apart from Carluccios that is!!! An absolute delight, just like a little piece of Italy in central Windsor. We've been eating here for years - the food is... read more

Been to other Carluccio's restaurants in the UK and Ireland many times, always dependable. However, wish there was more change to their menu. Feel like the menu has remained the same since 2011. Would say that the food is reliably consistent, but our waiter eas the real reason that our dinner was so great. He seemed to be working the... More

Great marketing and branding as with most chains, however the quality of the food lets it down. Its ok for a chain but nothing like real Italian food. As an Italian I would avoid it unless desperate.

As part of a chain this particular restaurant is very good with wonderfully friendly staff and excellent value food. It is essential to book at weekends as the location is right in the centre of a bust tourist town, but ask for a window seat and you can watch the world go by as you enjoy your food.

You always get a decent meal. The service is good and the staff superb. Great location, and easy parking in the shopping precinct. Close to the railway station too. What more can be said?

We wanted a tasty meal on a Thursday evening so went to Carluccio's as we know it very well after being very regular customers at their Reading restaurant over many years. We had the fixed price menu which is excellent value for money - good quality and quantity at a very reasonable price. Carluccio's delivers consistency wherever we have been... More

My girlfriend and I went here for dinner last night. The service was brilliant as usual, like the food. I ate lobster spaghetti from the specials menu and it was fab, and plenty of it. Some of the mains are a little expensive, but well worth it. That said, I think the food is excellent value.

I have visited several Carluccio's and experienced the same food quality and professional l service at every one. They obviously have a very good quality programme and excellent staff training. We were out with a friend and decided on a light meal for dinner. I had a seafood pasta from the gluten free menu ( Carluccio's has the widest choice... More

We ate outside and it felt like being on a day abroad. Service was desperately slow but they were very busy. Food and wine was excellent although a bit pricey. We will be back.
