Food was great, and didn't take ages to come. staff were attentive and lovely. The problem was that all four of us found the restaurant was very cold.

Lovely meal over all. Was served very fast, all items came very quick and the food was lovely. For anyone looking for a place to go out for a meal with their other half, this place is recommended.

wow! for an anniversary dinner this really hit the mark.
we started with focaccia and olives, then both had pasta. he had ragu and i took the amazing waiters (Jack, we love you!) recommendation and had the picante sausage pasta - a new favourite!
we then had gelato and blueberry and lemon cake for dessert and all of this was under £60!!
please note that if you wish to tip the servers, bring some cash as all the tips on card go to corporate :(
overall, such an amazing experience and Jack really made it all perfect for us!!

Had a really lovely breakfast. Emily, our attendant, was very pleasant and friendly. This was our first Carluccio’s breakfast, although we have been lots of times during the day and evening, it won’t be our last!

This was my 1st visit here, as I passed by millions of times. Went for a birthday brunch with daughter. Was greeted and served by "THE MAN" Jack. Friendly helpful and a credit to your establishment. Nothing was too difficult for him and he was so helpful and assisted in a lovely experience with your establishment. We had the vegan breakfast, most places fail at this, but it was delicious, the courgettes the sour bread... Yum and this is far superior to many eateries we have visited worldwide for vegan meals. The only negative is the amount of food you get. I am not a big eater and it was suitable. However I have 2 sons but wouldn't return with them as I know they would've still been hungry and wouldn't have been good value with additions. I would definitely visit again with either of my daughters. Definitely recommended.

Faultless. Being in the Derbion centre, I thought it might not offer the usual Carluccios experience, but I was wrong. The staff were brilliant, friendly and attentive. The food was incredible and we weren't rushed off from our table which usually happens after breakfast bookings. Will definitely be going back and recommending to everyone!

Carluccios is a fantastic place to dine. The staff are always friendly and well
informed about the menu items. The restaurant itself is always clean and open, and presents itself much better than Zizzis next door. Our italian of choice and well priced.

First visit here and it was lovely. Perfect portion sizes and simple menu that doesn’t try to be over the top like it’s neighbour zizzi’s. Perfect ambience and good service.

No option to leave tips when paying with card though and no service charge which is disappointing.

Three of us ate at Carluccio's Derby on 1st September 2021. The table was reserved for 1 p.m. and was ready when we arrived. Sometimes I eat here alone and my two companions on this occasion have eaten here on other occasions too.
As usual the staff were polite and friendly, and took the trouble to explain the different menu options to us. Our drinks order was taken more or less straight away and our food order after a suitable time had elapsed. The restaurant was very busy (almost all the tables were occupied), but our dishes arrived quickly enough. As ever the quality of the food was good and it was hot when it arrived. All in all a good experience, which is why we keep going back - given how busy it was a lot of other people think the same.
