    I had the salad and it was just shocking ... their was so much oil on the salad it ruined it. Never again. The waitress could see I was not enjoying it and carried on as if it was fine. Won’t be back

    Lovely experience. Covid ceŕts checked. Atmosphere lovely. Good selection of food. Waiter very friendly, wine very nice and reasonably priced Food delicious. Toilets very clean and we felt very relaxed. Would recommend Carluccios to all my friends. It has been on my to visit list for ages.

    Our overall experience was disappointing. We all had these dishes before and they were much better with far more flavor. Dssert when it came was dreadful. Lemon meringue tart had soggy pastry as though it had spent a long time in the fridge and was defrosted quickly. The meringe was liquid on top. Could not eat it. Panna cotta was also served not properly set. We sent back the lemon meringue and were offered another dessert which we accepted. The staff were pleasant but I will not be returning for dinner. Food standard at lunchtime seems far better. I would not recommend to anyone for dinner.

    We waited 50mins for our main course when we asked where food was we were told the kitchen was busy yet the couple beside us who arrived after us got their food before us. The food was average when it did arrive and my daughter ordered the ravioli and got about 4 on her plate. Will not be recommending this place.

    All good as usual with Carluccios. The staff were very friendly and attentive. They make you feel like more than just a customer... The food is always tasty and the ambience and cleanliness is of a high standard. I would just be careful of being too attentive, give a little time to breath and next time it would be five stars!

    Absolutely brilliant, staff was extremely accommodating. Although we did have to wait a few minutes for our table to be free, we were offered a complimentary drink which was a very nice touch. Food was very tasty, and good portion sizes. Overall a great place to go for food in around the city centre.

    Carbonara was cold and took awhile to come out to the table, felt like it was sitting in the kitchen idle for a good while.

    Lovely decor. We were seated upstairs. Had tomato bruschetta to start which was very tasty but a 2nd slice of bread would have been better. Mains Funghi Risotto which was really nice. Had the house red. Very pleasant wait staff. We’ll definitely be back.

    Food was really tasty. Main courses were a good portion size. We had the prawn starter which was a little "boring" / plain, but the calamari was delicious. We also had the carbonara and seafood linguine, both of which were delicious and a really good portion.

    My first experience was pretty upsetting, staff in a bad mood and treating us very badly. I ordered one avocado toast which came burned on the top and impossible to cut. Always wanted to visit this restaurant but looks like a lot need to be improved.

    Got the impression the waitress was more interested in sales than service. Perhaps that is a policy of Carluccios. Ordered bread and a dip. We expected it to arrive before the main course but our food arrived with no sign of it. Was disappointed.
