Though we arrived about 5 p.m., the restaurant was already full, which may attest to its popularity with locals. The menu is varied with a variety of interesting pasta dishes. We enjoyed both pasta and a tasty dessert. Our server seemed a bit rushed and it took awhile to get her attention. Our food came quickly, however.

While the take-aways look quite decent - and decently priced -, the restaurant did not prove worth its money for us. A salad for 11 € contained, besides green leaves, loads of cheese and bacon (which to our memory had not been announced - we had looked for something vegetarian!). It was hardly edible without any bread, which was denied... More

My friend and I were walking past Carluccio's spotted a table outside as it was a lovely evening we grabbed it and were not disappointed. We opted for a two course fixed price dinner which was lovely and more than enough for us. The service was quick, and the waiter very friendly. It was so nice to "people watch" in... More

Four of us had mains and some drinks with some sharing starters. I didn't loke the marinated olives, the herby stuff in there was overkill. The Grissini wrapped with parma ham though was delicious. I am giving 3 stars based on my experience. I simply did not enjoy my mushroom risotto which was smothered in garlic which overpowered the mushroom... More

A friend and I walked in while traveling in Dublin, and what a delight. Clean, bright, friendly and fully Italian, it was first rate! The food was delicious - LOVED the homemade focaccia! The place was fun and lively, and our waitress was funny, efficient and welcoming! I would recommend this restaurant unreservedly!

My family (2 adults, 2 boys under 12 and a grandmother) had a very nice dinner here. Tried to make reservations on line but that didn't work. No matter - the website said to go to the restaurant anyway and it was right. We were seated right away in a lovely 2nd floor booth overlooking Dawson St. We had calamari... More

Greeted and seated well, served promptly and food was excellent. Lunch. Garlic bread starter was wonderful bread and may goodness it packed a garlic punch.. Super. Breaded chicken and rocket may need something more, the pasta was nice, fresh and flavoursome and all from the set menu, delighted to have stumbled on this so close to Grafton St. Will visit... More

Carluccios is an excellent restaurant - good, quality food, fantastic servers (Peter is hilarious) and a nice friendly atmosphere. The food was very good. It is a great place to eat outdoors when the sun is shining. We'll be back!
