Table outside was fine but no cover if it had rained. The food was very mediocre.

Please learn how to print VAT receipts. Today by you not knowing how to print vat receipts you cost me money.
I was also disappointed that the manager tried to fob me off by saying he recognised four digits on my till receipt as being the vat number and also saying there is no vat on food only drinks. Shocking customer service to try and get rid of me.

A little concerned as we were eating outside with imminent rain. Just managed to eat before the heavens opened. I expected a marquee/canopy. Otherwise a good meal. Not sure we would risk it again during lockdown

We were eating outdoors due to lockdown. There no umbrellas and no heaters which we thought was very poor. No blankets provided either. The food was poor. The service was pleasant and helpful.

Great food and cocktails. Prompt service and they apologised profusely for the wait. We were unable to leave a tip because the card machine didn't accept tips and we had no cash.

We went there for breakfast, one traditional and one vegetarian, both of us agreed it was one of the best breakfasts we ever had (honestly). Great service and the staff couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely visit again.

Service excellent but food always luke warm, may I suggest heating the plates to a reasonable temperature which may go some way to keeping food hot!!
That’s my only complaint but it does put us off, would go more often otherwise.

Helpful staff. Food a little pricey for lunchtime, but cooked lovely. Very noisy due to two babies who were behind us screaming throughout our lunch, which wasn’t the restaurant fault.

Four of is went to Carluccio’s for lunch on a nice sunny day in Chester. Two of the dishes came out piping hot but the other two dishes had to be sent back as they were luke warm. Although the staff soon rectified this, it meant we had to wait for our food to be redone and therefore we didn’t all eat together.

Outstanding service and food, they went above and beyond (stayed open past normal opening hours to accommodate us due to my girlfriends birthday) and made it a day to remember!

I requested they do something special for the desert and they delivered with a amazing plate with happy birthday written on it and candles, we will definitely be returning soon!

We visited Chester to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We’ve dined at Carluccio’s many times and despite the restrictions of only being able to sit outdoors, we had a very tasty lunch. The food, service and value were all excellent as always.
