for a restaurant that serves mostly pasta, the pasta was unflavoured and I was disappointed

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.

I chose mixed breads for my starter with olive oil and balsamic vinegar , however some of the bread was really dry which spoilt it for me as I had been looking forward to it .

So glad to have been able to go back here for the first time since lockdown. The service was second to none. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The food was superb, can recommend the focaccia and bread and oils and the pasta and risotto dishes we had were delicious. Only downside was the fact that we’re no rum babas for dessert so we passed on that. Brilliant time and well done carluccios.

We had a lovely dinner. We was told we would have a wait a bit for our food because of a big table - that doesnt bother us - but it was out very quickly. Our server was polite and very welcoming.

We were pleasantly surprised, first visit and fairly low expectations with the restaurant being in the Derbion Mall. Service was attentive and professional, very helpful staff. Food was very good - a couple of us had the fixed price lunch which was very good value. Food was tasty and well presented. We had a small child with us and the kids menu is excellent and healthy.

Service was good, server was pleasant. However, the food really was not very tasty at all. First and last time I would visit carluccios. The food was a big let down. Sorry.

our reservation was for 12:15 but we'd asking in advance for the breakfast menu (which ends at 12:00), and the staff were happy to oblige. We both had the breakfast deal with the full veggie option and it was a decent sized plateful of very tasty food. There was no issue with substituting one or two items from the menu version, or having juice instead of the hot drinks.
All the staff were friendly and helpful.

Thank you to Daniel for always giving the most amazing, attentive service. We always love eating here and have been served by him on many occasions honestly the customer service alongside the great food and amazing portion sizes at that not forgetting tasty/delish food makes it a heavenly experience. Thank you guys and keep up the awesome work. If I could have one dessert over and over it’s definitely the panacotta absolutely delicious thanks chef. Glad your open again definitely missed eating quality food.
