A visit to Carluccio`s is always a real hit! We arrived here about 12.45 on Wednesday and were quickly seated at a downstairs table, The whole menu is so tempting as everything sounds so good. Our waiter was very friendly and polite and answered any questions we had regarding the menu. We were hungry and looking for a long lunch... More

Last night was my first time back in Carluccio's in several months and the first time since they had a make over. I was eating with a number of friends. I was a bit early and the restaurant accommodated me by giving me a seat at the upstairs bar where I quaffed a lovely glass of the house red (Xmas... More

Excellent place to eat authentic Italian food, we have eaten may times in Carluccio's restaurants in different city's, and find the quality is always the same. Generally a busy place to eat but you are never rushed, just like in Italy you can take your time and relax between courses.

We got abused by a couple that sat next to us who were protestors against the water chargers!!! The staff did not even apoligize for this behaviour! Never experienced this in my life!! A simple apology would... More

A little bit of Italy in Ireland. Great food, service and drink. This was a short walk to our hotel. The restaurant was bursting at the seams - including all tables outside. Great location. We had the Penne with sausage and it was very good. Dessert was out of the world.

The food and service were very good. Wine list was good. I enjoyed the Barbera. They had a good gluten free pasta and the waiter recommended a nice pasta sauce that is a specialty sauce. Overall, a good experience. They also accepted walk-ins on a very busy Saturday night.

The atmosphere and location are excellent. Food generally good but one of our pasta dishes was dried out. Was either heated up in a microwave or left under a heat lamp for ages.

As a lover of Italian food, this would be my preferred choice in Dublin central. Love the delicatessen as you walk in the front door - fantastic to see all that wonderful produce on display - I nearly always take something home with me! Pasta is always cooked perfectly - the Seafood Lingune is always a favourite, together with a... More

I was skeptical about eating Italian food in Ireland, but we decided to try it, anyway, since it was near the last site that we visited. The food and the service were excellent.
