What is good: pizza and calzone was good and well cooked, mozzarella is good, such as the others ingredients. We take also some seafood-linguine: pasta was well cooked, but seafood not excellent. Service is really great as for the guys and ladies: they were very nice and take care of us asking us several times how was eberything. To note:... More

Pizzas were delicious as usual. Freshly made, tasty ingredients. The service was impeccable. Our server was fabulous as was the manager. A huge surprise was the free dessert given to me to celebrate Mothers Day! So lovely. A really welcome gesture. Big high five to Carluccios for this. We'll absolutely be back!

The Marina Mall location is nice, but the food is average and the pizza is below average. Overall unsatisfied.

Not a first time in Carluccios and the marina branch is always "that" place to be because of the great location especially at winter time. Food is good ( tried salmon and asparagus pasta yesterday). Their ginger home made ale is simply delicious! Nice service! The only feedback I would have for the restaurant is that sometimes they give you... More

Had lunch and coffee here. Ordered antipasti which was nice and not overly expensive with water and coffee. Not to busy and decent space between tables with a view of the fountains..

Sitting outside in the cool weather was a blessing. The view of the fountain and being there at the right time for the show was an added bonus. The pizzas were delicious and nice and thin, so little wastage and the salad was also deemed good. Pleasant and friendly service. Make sure to get there for the right times for... More

Food was good, service needs a bit of improvement. We had three separate waiters, one for drinks order, one for food order and one who brought our food. Somewhere in amongst themselves they got my order wrong so had to wait 5/6 minutes for my main. Wouldn't be such a bad thing but when your eating as a couple you... More

Last week we were to take Mauritius flight from Dubai and it was almost early morning we reached near Gate A21 and were tempted to have a cup of coffee. We located this restaurant nearby and opted to have coffee and sat down near the gate and tasted the coffee which was an average and we were disappointed.

A good place to sit and watch the very impressive fountains at the Burj Khalifa. Good coffee which rolled in to lunch. Pasta fairly average but very edible. Staff good and attentive. All just a bit too predictable and average. Carluccio's should really be a bit better than this.

We arrived at dinner time without reservation. Hostess found place for us. Service was good, our waiter (jerald) was smiling and nice, however foodwise nothing special, mocarella was delicious though. With their location, they get extra amount of customers, but could not cope with cleanliness and quality at the required level.

Thank TsereteliM

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
