Only one of the worse place in London. Don't even pay the hours of their "beloved" staff. A 50 % cut on the hours worked seems fair to them. Food is bad, really bad, you clearly don't want to see what's going on in the...kitchen! Please please, there are so many decent Italian restaurant in London, just AVOID this oneMore

We had to wait over 10 minutes to even get a waiter’s attention for a drink and table next to us got their orders taken before us even though we were there way before them. Amazing food though, I had the mushroom risotto and it...was heaven!! And giant profiterole with hazelnut ice cream was delicious! Even though there’s was slow service, I would still recommend.More

Popped here before a theatre matinee and chose from the lunch set menu.Great value: 2 courses for £12.95 with the option of adding a glass of house wine for an extra £3.95. I had the chicken liver pate, which came with plenty of toasted bread,...followed by the fish cakes. Both courses really tasty. My daughter had the garlic bread followed by the chicken milanese which she said was also really good. The restaurant was really busy and there was a little wait between the courses, but we weren't in a rush so it was no problem. We didn't have a reservation, which wasn't a problem and they didn't seem to be turning anyone away, despite being busy. There is further seating upstairs. Toilets are on a lower ground floor and there didn't seem to be a lift, so would not be good for people with mobility problems.More

Sarah M, it's great to read such a great review about Carluccio's - Covent Garden!

Reviewed February 20, 2020 via mobile

We were here before and it was absolutely superb. So, knowing we were spending some time in London, I booked a month in advance. However, we were bitterly disappointed. From the start, the Mâitre D' was not very welcoming. Our waiter did his best but...wasn't very friendly. We had to wait ages for our food. When it came, one dish had obviously been under a heat lamp for a while; another's pasta was stuck together. The dessert was not as written on the menu- there was no sign of passion fruit mascarpone and far too much rock hard meringue. The standard has obviously gone down over the past couple of years. We shall not be returning.More
