We eat here regularly, great for a lazy lunch or dinner. We have a 4 and 2 year old, they love the food and the ambience is calming for them. Often do a deal for a two course meal for 9.95 which is a great price for quality food.

Better than the horrible pizza express which is the alternative!!

Highly recommended

We went on a busy Saturday afternoon, initially the first waitress was helpful having just seated us a better table became available (one with bench seating on one side rather than the cafe type chairs) so she helped us move.

The waiter who served us was about to walk off having only taken the order from three out of the four of us until we stopped him.

The main meals usually need (and in this case needed) at least one side dish to make it an actual dish which makes it expensive when it works out at about £1 a potato.

At the end of the meal our hot drinks came out ages before the deserts (by this time it was almost empty). Trying to pay the bill also took ages.

On the positive side one of our group had a wide choice on the Gluten free menu.

I've eaten here a couple of times in the past the Mrs likes it but I always go home hungry.

we visit Carluccios in Walton reguarly, and the service is always spot on. The children are catered for brilliantly, and the staff are always smiling and very friendly.

From a food perspective, we were pleasantly surprised. We anticipated perhaps an average meal from a chain restaurant, but it was really enjoyable and we came away with a definite thumb’s up for the food.

The down side was that the floor all around our table and the next few were covered in bread crumbs and bits of food. We would have guessed that there had just been a kids party which is fine, but the disappointing bit was that there seemed to be plenty of staff milling around, but it took some time for someone to come along and tidy up (a bit!). Equally we struggled to catch someone’s eye to order fresh drinks during our entire meal, and we were never approached to see if the meal was okay or indeed to offer drinks.

This was the first time in many years that I have not left a tip as there was no service to speak off at all. Price wise though, we were pleased and thought it offered better value than other chains like Prezzo’s for example.

The restaurant has a high ceiling which amplifies any noise, and so if you fancy somewhere quiet and relaxing, perhaps look elsewhere. Equally the tables and chairs have seen better days and reminded me of a school canteen. If we happened to be popping into Walton for some shopping and fancied a reasonable bite to eat, then we would return. For any other occasion, we would look elsewhere I am afraid.

Food relative to price 8/10 – service 3/10.

On the many occasions we have had brunch/lunch here, we have always found the service fast and friendly and the food always to the same standard.
