How often have I walked past Carluccio's in the past without being tempted? It won't happen again. We were in Dublin for the day and found this gem on the corner of Dawson Street and Duke Street...there were seats outside but they were full so we went in. It was like walking off a street in Dublin and straight into... More

This well established Italian restaurant in Dublin is a great place to eat. With great food, good wine selection, good service, reasonable prices and always busy, which is a good sign!

Three of us had dinner here on Saturday and we found the food was fantastic. We thought the atmosphere could've been warmer and the prices a little cheaper but overall, this restaurant was excellent. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and the house wine was great quality.

For a reliable place to go with nice food, good atmosphere and pleasant staff this place is a safe bet. The food is great and the set menu is hard to beat for value. Although always busy we have never not got a table however the staff always seem obsessed with seating us ,in the less pleasant,upstairs section even with... More

We went to Farm around the corner for dinner and our waiter suggested we come here for breakfast. The cappuccino was great. Our breakfast was delicious - we all had eggs dishes. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather.

We have just returned from a weekend in Dublin, eating in a variety of restaurants, largely outside. Carluccio's was one of the best- great food and exceptional staff. We had only one problem, the communal salt cellars which allow successive guests to dip fingers in for salt. I know one can ask for a special new one just for oneself... More

I have mixed feelings about Carluccio's. I am not a fan of restaurant chains as I believe there is no substitute for small owner/operator enterprises reacting to market produce rather than corporate policy, research and costings. So I confess upfront to a certain bias and the unvarying menu on the 3/4 visits did not assuage that, despite the daily specials.... More

Our first visit to Carluccios and we were very happy. We had ravioli and Milanese both were very nice. The service was very good and the price was more than competitive. We kept to soft drinks so we avoided the wine list.
