We were looking for somewhere to eat and happened across Caluccios. He is one of our favourite TV Chefs but so is Jamie Oliver and his Restaurant local to us, has the most awful reviews. We had no means of looking up Carluccios there and then but decided to try it anyway. They found us a table and the service... More

When i ask for a table for one I dont expect to audibly hear someone in the restaurant call back "for 1?? are you sure??". Nice welcome. Good food and wine selection, service was just average. Starter of bruschetta was nice but very dry and needed a little olive oil or something. The "gluten free" version of the breaded chicken... More

We were a group of 4 adults and 2 kids (1 teen and 1 pre-teen). We first were attracted to the stunningly delectable pastry shop at the front of the restaurant after a... More

Just visited our dentist around the corner and visited Carluccios to have pasta! Great choice and got 3 to share between the two of us. Ravioli, mushrooms and puttanesca. Excellent flavours. Then tiramisu for me and cheeses ( with a truffle honey to die for)

Finding this restaurant was a happy coincidence. The food was very flavorful and fresh. To quote my cousin Vinnie's comment to our waitress "This food is excellent and that means something coming from me because I'm a Guido". Everything we had was amazing.

My wife and I stumbled across Carluccio's while strolling around and were so glad we did. We enjoyed excellent service, food and drinks right there at the side of the road in lovely sunshine. A truly delightful experience.

Great restaurant. The food is tasty and well presented! Portions are sizeable. The two/three course prix fixe menu has great choices. The penne with sausage sauce was wonderful and the paired wine (Sicilian) well chosen. The tiramisu was lovely! Service was exceptional. We only stumbled upon the restaurant by chance. We're glad we did!!
