                        As this restaurant is so good for those needing to be sure that foods are gluten free for medical reasons, this is our go to place when at Cribbs. Despite being very short of servers, they were absolutely super and when one of our dishes came back without the gluten free sticker this was immediately checked by the manager despite having seen it prepared in the gluten free area. We also received a discounted meal for one of the ingredients which we thought was not up to par as far too fatty. Side salads were especially fantastic!

                        Carluccio’s is one of my favourite places to eat but as so many have closed it was great to come across one at Cribbs Causeway in Bristol. It’s situated inside the shopping mall so potentially noisy but we sat just inside the covered area and not within the huge open area surrounded by other eateries. It was busy as we had booked for 1pm and staff were very busy but the service was friendly and efficient. I also noted one of the waitresses being particularly kind to an elderly lady. The food was good we all had starters; thick mushroom soup and chicken pate (my favourite) Two different chicken dishes were consumed and enjoyed and a nice buttery veggie pasta. Chocolate bread and butter pudding as a dessert was shared between two! If you love a good ‘flat white’ you will find one here.

                        Would never return. Waitresses arguing with management team in front of customers, the whole place felt chaotic with how it was being ran. Our starter (which looked nothing like the pictures) arrived before our drinks. I had to ask a few times for cutlery for the starter. The mains were so over cooked, my chicken was so bland and the broccoli tasted of fish. Extremely disappointed with my main as it was essentially a big piece of fried chicken with a wilted rocket salad and a halved tomato. My mums salad looked like it had been thrown together without any care and the tuna was so over cooked it was like rubber. We yet again had to ask for cutlery for our mains. The whole meal and restaurant felt like a shambles which was a shame as I was a member of the team who opened up one of the first Carluccio’s restaurant in the south west. Such a shame to see how much it has gone downhill in food and service quality. It felt like no one cared.

                        I’m a fan of Italian food so I often eat at Carluccio’s in the Mall, at Cribbs Causeway, whether it’s a late breakfast or a lunch. I always find the staff very attentive and pleasant. The food is good, authentic and fresh. I would recommend it.

                        Our first visit to Carlucio's for some time but just as enjoyable as ever. Nice food at a reasonable price with a good selection on offer. Disappointed that they only had bottled Peroni, however we look forward to a return soon.

                        I have frequently eat at Carl Luccios Cribbs Causeway but it has increasingly disappointed me recently. Yesterday I had to send back my lasagne as it was only luke warm and by the time the replacement arrived my friends had finished their meal. The replacement lasagne was not much better. I will not be eating there again unless there is a great improvement. Perhaps a voucher might encourage me to try again.

                        We like to sit at our favourite table , away from the cacophonous reverberations of the Mall! Renato & Salvatore make that possible when they can - thanks Good food and drinks variation - well prepared and well presented. Generally attentive whilst non-invasive table service (thanks Sophie!) Please don't ever close !!! It's disappointing enough to have lost the Bristol and Bath restaurants.

                        Really enjoyed our lunch however we had to ask for the set menu. We’re told that it is not offered but customers gad to ask for it??? A bit strange especially as last time I visited I was given it along with the a la carte menu. Anyway having asked we were given it and proceeded to order from it, which was good value compared to same items on the a la carte.

                        We visit regularly because we love Carluccio and look forward to his Seafood Linguine which is really good. Importantly, it is reliably good. Wine is reasonable, good value and either good or really good - never poor.

                        I had an amazing birthday meal at Carluccio’s. Service was outstanding, and felt very welcome. Didn’t have to wait long periods of time for mine and my mothers food to be served which was excellent! Would definitely go or recommend this restaurant again to anyone! 😊

                        Please see Tripadvisor review Summary - steak “pink” was brown over well done and chewy - mustard? Waitress don’t have or serve mustard here - bruschetta overflowing with tomatoes — mixed salad for chicken was green rocket - Fevertree tonic was Franklins - presentation very sloppy

                        Such a shame that this once wonderful chain restaurant offered a real taste of italy. But unfortunately the quality of produce and cooking continues to decline now to a point that the food is very poor. That is the last time I will be frequenting these once great restaurants.

                        I made an online booking but needed to change time which was easy to do. Food was alright, not that special. Not that many vegetarian options for myself. Potatoes ordered we’re lukewarm, not hot as they should be. Ordered off the set menu and price at the end had not been deducted so had to ask for this to be done.

                        Not Carluccios fault but the whole seating area within the mall was freezing cold. The breakfast was fine but got cold quickly due to the situation. The service was ok but nothing special and the food was ok but portions very small.

                        Although their website still states that they opened at 9am between Christmas & New Year - and the booking system allowed us to book a table for 9am - we arrived to find that for these few days they have decided to open at 9:30am!! However - thanks to the iniative and professionalism of the manager (I think he was manager), this was all resolved; when he heard we had booked online for 9am, he somply opened up early - at about 9:10am. Breakfast was excellent, as was the service all round. So good to see this kind of initiative, as it truly is a rarity.
