Nice little place, serving rather expensive food, good Italian flavours (too many tomatoes) and very extensive menu. Portions are on the small side! Whilst it is Italian, it lacks atmosphere and indeed it felt like you were in a UK Restaurant where they may well have served Sunday dinner. Certainly worth a visit but for me not regularly...

Not the best experience, asked for the grilled chicken without the extra virgin olive oil, no problem. Asked for potatoes instead of chips, no potatoes ??!! Opted for seasonal veg as offered. Bowl of mushroom, aubergine and not much else other than a hefty amount of olive oil arrived. No salad as you only get either salad and chips or... More

A two star review just because we do not sell potatoes and waitress that knows how to do her job because by law they asked about allergies . I have no more words. wait i have some more : the gnocchi are made with potatoes but there are not home made as stated on the menu like everything we offer. More

Bren here a lot and never fails to impress. Tomoght had the gnocci which was beautifully cooked and a nice winter warmer on a cold Thursday night. Desserr was a trio of chocolate which hit the spot without being too sweet. One of my fav Italians and probably the best in Dunfermline.

This first visit, mid-week, to Carlucci's for me and my husband was a pleasant surprise. A very friendly and kind waitress brought me a comfy chair when she noticed I was struggling with a back problem. The decor is warm and fascinating with pictures of famous Italian actors taken from films over the decades. Nice touch. The menu is extensive... More

Great authentic Italian restaurant with a buzy atmosphere and really lovely staff. First visit but will definitely go back. There is a distinct lack of good quality sensibly priced restaurants in the Stirling-Falkirk-Dunfermline triangle but Carlucci has nailed it. Complimentary bread sticks were a thing of pure joy!!

Had a great lunch yesterday the staff were very helpful indeed as I took my sister out for a wee day out after recovering from cancer and the staff went the extra mile and even got us soft seats nothing was a problem to them and the food was outstanding can't wait to go back well done girls.

Everytime I'm in Dunfermline I love to go here, fantastic little restaurant on the high street. Muscles and Bruschetta are a favourite choice for starter, and both Carbonara and Bolognaise are also super for mains. Generous portions and full to burst when leaving. Complimentary breadsticks to begin with are lovely also. Highly recommend, lovely atmosphere and very polite staff.

Thank Ashleigh F
