Ok...

Went there to catch up with family and have a meal. Not very impressed with it to be totally honest. Reminded me of an upmarket talke away. There are much nicer Italian restaurants to eat in. Service was good and staff very plesent but just did not do it for me.

Had lunch here on a busy Saturday in February with my Mum & daughters. We were seated quickly & shown a good value lunch menu. €14.95 for 2 courses & add a glass of house wine for a further €3.95 if I remember correctly. The food in general was very good but 1 of our mains, the ravioli was a... More

I write this review with a little bit of caution - not great complaints but simple gripes! A group us went to dinner here. The waiter was fantastically Italian and very accommodating despite a very busy restaurant. I was delighted to see that they have introduced a gf menu which includes individual portioned antipasti's. The antipasti was good - but... More

Had a nice evening here this week with friends. Good menu with a list of extra specials. To start we all shared a big platter of mixed antipasti. This presented a bit of a problem for 2 of my friends though as the platter included prawns and they both have severe allergies and were therefore afraid to eat anything else... More

This is a lovely little piece of Italy in the middle of Dublin on Dawson street. There is nothing like a really good Italian coffee and this place delivers. Service was excellent from Peter. Fabulous range of quality Italian cakes. Great breakfast menu. I will definitely return here.

After eating in the Covent Garden restaurant my expectations were very high! Unfortunately it didn't live up to the reputation of Carluccio's as I knew it! The staff were really friendly but the food, well I wasn't impressed! The lasagne was very dry and the plate/dish was an overkill for such a small portion! The seafood pasta was so bland!... More

Brought my children for a treat on a Saturday afternoon. We were seated and given menus and immediately asked if we wld like drinks. I ordered drinks for the children and afterwards noticed that drinks were part of the children's set menu. I asked the waitress but was told the drinks I ordered were not part of the children's menu... More

I I visited this restaurant with a couple of girlfriends on Saturday 24th of January and enjoyed it so much that I cam back the following Saturday with a group of couples. The first visit we all ate from the set menu which is such good value and everybody enjoyed their food. The following week I shared an amazing platter... More
