This is a nice Italian restaurant centrally located. It's a nice casual place to visit with the family. Service is good and friendly. The food is decent and consistent. The portions are moderate so perhaps more than one course would be recommended. The childrens menu offers good choices and is served promptly.

Carluccio’s has always been a favourite of mine. Having two small kids, we were regular visitors, as they always had a well-thought-through children’s menu, nicely presented, the food from the adult’s menu was good too, and they cater for special dietary requirements. We haven’t been for about a year, however, and based on our last visit, we won’t be back... More

Has lunch here over the weekend - had googled gluten free options in Dublin and this restaurant was recommended. Plate of GF pasta was practicaly licked clean - best recommendation I can give. Service was excellent.

Arrived in Dublin on 6/1/16 fairly late in the day. Went in search of food. I've had a couple of mediocre experiences in Carluccio's in Glasgow but decided that I'd give them another go in a different city since so many people seem to rate them. So the good first. The staff were great, helpful and attentive, found us a... More

Hi Amg1823, Thank your for your feedback, sorry to hear you are disappointed. The Pinot Grigio should never be served chilled and I am surprised this has happened and wasn't rectified immediately. Also though we don't have a Chicken Pasta it would be possible to add Chicken to a dish if you liked, we have let ourselves down here by... More

We happened upon Carluccios when we were in Dublin walking around at the end of our two-week vacation in Ireland. We were very impressed with the ravioli with lemon and pine nut sauce as well as the espresso ordered with dessert. Service was excellent; our waiter was a lovely young man from Italy. We are always torn between taking vacations... More

In Dublin for a couple of days, hotel breakfasts didn't look up to much, so scouted around and thank heaven found the Carluccios. It was great, food well cooked and loads of it, didn't wait long and the staff were great too. We went twice, both good and we noticed lots of locals obviously regulars. We can see why, we... More

Really nice place to eat for both lunch and dinner. The food is delicious and they do a good 3 course meal deal. I highly recommend the mixed Bruscetta and Prosecco cocktail. The only downside is that the portions are kind of small. You will definatley need to book. Hint: when asked if you would like water, make sure to... More

I'm not a great fan of focaccias generally, but I couldn't recommend more the ones at Carluccio's. Particularly, garlic with parmesano cheese. They are starters, but if you are not too hungry, one of those plus another starter should satisfy you. As expected for the area, the restaurant is at the edge of being fancy, more because of the customers... More

I had meal here and it was awful from start. Grumpy waiters, food awful, bruschetta consisted of two slices bread barely dipped in oil with few hard cherry tomatoes dumped on side of plate, at 6.50 euro a pop!. I had lamb chop with few potatoes on side with very little sauce on chops. When I asked for more sauce... More
