Great Italian food in Dublin

Came for dinner and had a really great meal. The pasta was fresh and delicious, and the appetizers were also very tasty. Service was friendly. We also came back the next day to get some items from the little deli section to take for a picnic - the ciabatta and salami's are amazing!

I'm in love with their carbonara. Today we've tried also the garlic bread which is spectacular and the ravioli (spinach+ricotta) which is not as good as the carbonara in my opinion. The place is very pleasant and the staff is great. It's always a nice stop for lunch whenever shopping around Grafton Street.

From a meat eater, try the vegetarian dish 'penne giardiniera' If you like Italian food, Carluccio's is up there with the best! I visited with friends and the general consensus was a pleasant meal for all. If I could pick at anything it would be the table spacing could be a little better but the food makes up for that.

That is one of my favorite aces in Dublin. Great food, specially the sandwich and the sweets... the selection of wines are also very special.

We were a large group visiting Dublin and had not booked anywhere to eat, however, many of the group had used Carluccio's in various other places, so we knew they were good. Thanks to the lovely waitress who sorted out the table for us. The service was good and quick considering what a large group and the staff very helpful... More

I was in Carluccio's last evening and had a CHICKEN LIVER PATE STARTER! Homemade smooth chicken liver pate, toasted ciabatta bread and onion relish. This was followed by a LOBSTER SPAGHETTI Lobster tossed in spaghetti with crab, fresh tomato, basil and chilli. Listed as a new menu item. The starter was delicious and the lobster spaghetti was disappointing - little... More

The coffee is great but the eggs benedict that i had for breakfast were dreadful. They were at best warm bordering on cold and the hollandaise sauce was bitter and very tired. They were kind enough not to charge me for them but really they could and should do better

I had dinner here once before and was very impressed and happy with the hole meal. I thought I'd grab lunch here on my own last Saturday. There was seats outside and I asked a waiter who was outside at the time if I could sit there. He said no problem and that he'd be back in a moment. 15... More
