At Carluccio's we are noisy about food. We taste it, try it, argue about it and when it’s exactly right we enjoy it. Our heads, hands and hearts are firmly in the kitchen. It’s the Italian way, and it’s what Carluccio’s is all about. We want to share this foodie dialogue with you – ciao

It was the last lunch we could have in a restaurant before we went into tier 4. The restaurant would be closing for an indefinite period but it did not affect the standard of food or service. The grilled lamb I had was absolutely delicious, really tender and flavoursome. Full marks.

Annual Christmas Eve trip to Carluccio's for breakfast. It didn't disappoint. So happy it was open in this really difficult period. Thanks.

A last hurrah before covid 19 tiers changed to strike out Christmas 2020 from the calendar. It was especially good to talk to the waitress from Verona, sadly unable to get home for the holiday. Good to find an Italian in an Italian restaurant!

Food is good but could be hotter in temperature - sometimes they are inconsistent in the heating of the meal
Great location and friendly team

An excellent lunch in pleasant surroundings. Service, staff and the food itself were all excellent. We'll definitely go again (when they are allowed to open.)

The smallest amount of sourdough possible with the breakfast!
How can a poached egg be bigger than the bread it is served on? Ask Carluccio's .

They do serve god, tasty food but this breakfast was very poor with an undrained poached egg making the one , tiny slice of bread very soggy and inedible.

By all means go & enjoy a meal at Carluccio's but maybe avoid breakfast if you like sourdough.

I ordered beef fettuccine and i had to ask them to put more beef because there was a little i was not expected that. I think i never order this dish again. Overall service was good and the atmosphere is quiet and cosy. Colchester what can i say there are not many choices! Thank you

Always a great breakfast here. Good value deal for breakfast, coffee & juice. Very very quiet at 9.30am & service is always great too. Can’t fault it the restaurant - only downside is the exorbitantly price parking at Nelson Rd, but that’s the council/fenwicks, not the restaurants fault.

The staff were really friendly and made you feel welcome, service was just right with staff leaving you alone to eat, drink and chat but appearing in a timely manor to clear plates away etc.
Food was very good except my sea bass was a little overcooked, but veg was perfect.
Wine and coffee were both good.
