Here at Carluccio's, we’ve always been true to our Italian heritage and what food really means to us. The best ingredients, from the best regions, cooked with love. The restaurant is in the heart of Dublin’s most fashionable shopping area, spread over 2 floors with al fresco seating. Why not come grab a bite to eat after a day of shopping?

    We had a super day at Carluccios. We hadn’t seen each other in quite a while and the food, service, ambience etc was fab. We weren’t rushed out and it was such a memorable day, lots of laughter too. Well done Carluccios. Audrey

    Food very average. I had the lasagna which was dry so rather disappointing for an Italian Restaurant. The website says that there’s a 2 course set lunch menu. However this menu is seemingly only available in the UK branches. The service on the other hand was very good.

    Really good food, nice ambience, good lighting. Lively atmosphere which added to the experience. We went for a birthday meal, 3 courses each plus a bottle of wine - a fair price. I was pleasantly surprised. Service was good and friendly, well paced between courses. We will definetely return.

    Average at best, carbonara seemed to be “missing” the sauce. Very dry spaghetti with about 4 pieces of bacon. Lasagna also watery and lacked flavour

    Food was fine but the quality seems to have gone down since I was there last. Dessert (tiramisu) was frozen in the centre so certainly not fresh. Not a great wine selection.

    Service was very poor. We waited over an hour for our food to arrive. When it did it was borderline cold. Food was just about average, it did not all match the price point. Will not be going back

    We had a nice table with a back support/banquette type seating at one side as requested which was great for my sore back. When I sat down, there was a vague smell of old dairy produce (stale milk) from the table which seemed to indicate that a cursory wipe of a spill of some kind had happened earlier in the day or perhaps the previous day. This was slightly offputting. The menu is quite broad and there were a few things I would like to have tried. I skipped a starter and opted for the chicken milanese with a side of tenderstem brocolli and a glass of Marlborough Sauvignon. I also had a diet coke and for dessert I had the Tiramisu. Everything was fine but not outstanding (the breaded chicken was a little hard to cut). There was a very small salad of rocket with the chicken which was rather wilted and no dressing. The Tiramisu was the star of the meal. I paid €55 including tip which was expensive for what I had.

    Mains were lovely but I was disappointed with dessert. I ordered chocolate fondant but that’s not what I got. There was no chocolate sauce in the middle. Instead it seemed more like a brownie with chocolate sauce on top but it was too dry to eat.

    Food was very good. I had ravioli which was excellent and a glass of red wine. Service was good at the table but I was delayed for several minutes at the entrance which was unnecessary as I had booked a table. I got caught behind a couple who were walk ins and they were waiting for a table and there wasn’t any room to them.

    We were a large group. Food was average. Anyone who ordered pasta were happy with their meals. Although two peoples were cold. The food was slow coming however the service was excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and very attentive to our needs. I had looked at the menu online in advance but felt the menu we were given on the night wasn’t as extensive
