Nice venue with a cosy feel and nice modern decor. The food was tasty and the service friendly. Nice chutneys/cakes to take away.

We visited with American friends who loved the food and our three year old had a great time thanks to very attentive and pleasant staff. Food was great and coffee was amazing!

I decided to have lunch in Italian place today, and was looking for something in Dublin city centre. This was my first visit to Carluccio's, and I was more than happy. Even though the place was extremely busy, waiters were very nice and helpful, and paid enough attention to every visitor. The pasta was delicious and I didn't have to... More

A welcome meal after the tourist trail in Dublin, including an open top bus tour, and visits to three wonderful libraries.

I have been to Carluccio's Restaurant last Sunday 14th of August 2016 for Dinner.I order a Lobster Spaghetti what was by far the best one I have had. The Staff's were very professional and attentive. The desert was also divine!! I am sure recommending this restaurant and also I will surely be back.

This was my second time to have lunch at Carluccio's in Dun Laoghaire, but will be my last. My son and I both ordered Lobster Spaghetti (€17.95 each) for our main course but unfortunately there was no lobster! The maitre d' said there should have been part of a claw in each portion but there was no sign of even... More

hi LisDoonVarna this is really not good enough - we are sorry we disappointed you. We will review our recipe for the lobster spaghetti and I will ensure that the manager and chef in Glasthule (where this occurred) have reviewed what happened. From time to time things can go wrong in our restaurants but where we really let ourselves and... More

Wonderful lunch experience. We had bread and olives to start and 3 of us had the lemon Ravioli. It was in a light sauce and not too lemony. Wonderful flavor and abundantly filled with cheese. The other lunch was Lasagne. It melted in your mouth. Superb flavor and richness. Service was great too.

We had the afternoon menu which offered 3 courses at a reasonable price (I believe €19), selection was OK and many of us took up this offer. In hindsight I wish I went for a main I would've enjoyed more but there you go. The ice cream is amazing and was definitely the highlight! Definitely recommend. We had an issue... More

Relaxed unstuffy atmosphere and authentic Italian food for a decent price. Still smarting from the memory of a pseudo-Italian meal in another restaurant, I decided to order exactly the same here: olives, meat-balls with pasta and some bread. The difference was clear: real in-house pasta, tasty chef's tomato sauce, scrumptious meat-balls; olives that were well marinated; bread/oil/basalmic that was a... More
