Staff fine and friendly, service reasonably quick, but oh the food!
I had, for the purpose of speed, the dish of the day. a dry and tasteless breast of chicken accompanied by even more tasteless Tuscan style potato, not good, not good at all. I'd have almost been better off going to the golden arches!

Atmosphere good for informal meetings. The food is not special and is overpriced,

On a recent visit to the UK, our friends took us to Carluccio's in Richmond-on-Thames. It was excellent. Everything was perfectly prepared; the wines were good; and the service was excellent. I had the tortellini stuffed with venison, which was delicious (see photo).

Recommended!

We've been to Carluccio's numerous times as it's located within a one minute walk of where we live and it's a great local for casual dining. The sharing platters are great starters and all of the pasta dishes I've tried have been tasty. Look out for their specials as they usually have a good choice of seasonal dishes... The red wine is good and everything is reasonably priced.

The atmosphere is good, as it's usually quite busy and the staff are friendly.

I'd highly recommend a visit.

i have been a fan of carluccio for many years, although its a chain, it avoids the bean counter approach to dining that is favored by much of the high street.,

my partner and i tend to avoid oil drizzled food that many an establishment want to serve up ( awful food drizzled in oil is still awful !!)
one of the few restaurants they find our request easy to provide is carluccio,

our visit pre theatre was a leisurely late lunch, the staff are very empathetic and appears to understand are wish not to hurry and order each course once we have finished the previous one, one of us had the fixed price menu which included two of our favorites the chicken liver pate, and the chicken Milanese with salad , all are fresh and generous potion sizes,
the wine list includes everyday favorites at a reasonable price , with a few special for this who are pushing the boat out.

our request to alter dishes, or share puddings/glasses wine are all taken care of with no drama or stress , .

all in all the perfect everyday venue , just wished we had one in my home town of rickmansworh !!
