    Great food and even better service, as usual. We did think about trying something different, but sadly, as ever, it was a Lasagna for my 92-year-old mum, beef ragu for the hungry teenage grandson, and chicken—what's it and a large glass of Chianti for me!

    Have eaten here plenty of times and the food is always nice. This time the food was nice but I was left disappointed with the service when I was asked to share my starter. I looked at the waiter with a confused face and he asked if I could share my oil and vinegar dip with the rest of my party. I was speechless so then he said he could get them their own, well yes seeing as I'm paying for my own food why would I share? Then it became clear when he told me they were running out of oil! Not my problem. Then I had to ask a waitress when he still didn't bring over any oil for my friends. Really embarrassing being asked to share my food.

    The service an food were great for our Mothers' Day lunch. A shame that the toilets were in such a shabby condition and the all the wine glasses had water stains on them. However I would certainly return.

    Used the ‘50% off mains’ voucher which meant that we saved almost £40 on our £100+ bill for Sunday lunch with the family. Excellent value for money is the difference between a treat of eating out or staying at home and doing all the cooking ourselves.

    Apart from a lack of anyone to greet us (since we had made a booking) staff were extremely responsive and helpful. The restaurant was packed, including a rather noisy party just behind us, which made it a trifle loud for us. However, the food was absolutely excellent and we would definitely visit Carluccio's again!

    Nice ambience in the spacious restaurant. Service is always excellent and the food pretty good. The music was a bit loud when we first sat down, so moved away from speakers. It was ok then. Always served by really nice staff. The prices are not cheap, but they do offer 50% off mains if you return within a month. A nice idea. Wines pretty good

    A go to restaurant for us. Always friendly and welcoming we have been regular visitors because of this. Great atmosphere and location with food to match. I can honestly say that for a restaurant group this is the closest you'll get to a true taste of Italy. I heartily recommend the Saltimbocca which, in my opinion, is a good as one can get here or abroad.
