    Delicious pasta! Book ahead advised as this place always gets busy especially at lunchtime. Service was a tad slow but I appreciate it was a really busy service. Food arrived hot. Everything cooked and presented really well. Tasty too. I would come here again. No idea what it’s like in evenings as only ever visited during lunchtime. My only comment on price is; I would prefer a lunchtime special offer deal as we found it quite a pricey visit for lunch.

    This restaurant is usually cold as they have the air conditioning on all the time for the cooking staff. The problem with this is that the food gets cold quickly and by halfway through it’s inedible. We did ask for a warm table but didn’t get shown to one. Our complaint about the cold meant we had a free coffee. Not sure we’ll go back.

    We've just come back from a lovely Mothering Sunday lunch here with my Mum, husband and 2 girls. We were very early, waiting for my eldest to arrive, not a problem. Matt took great care of us. He was efficient, charming and funny. The food was good, as was the wine. Thanks Matt and the rest of the team.

    We have visited this restaurant about 10 times over the last 2 years. We have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and quick. The food is very good value for money. We tried a new dish every visit. Always very tasty and more than enough portion wise. It is clean and not noisy. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

    This was such a disappointing visit. Anyone who suffers with an allergy, this restaurant is not for you as even meals without certain ingredients are not an option due to being pre-made or potentially contaminated including chips!! My daughter is nut allergic and couldn’t have anything other than cheese pasta or a pea risotto, she was unbelievably offered pesto pasta despite this containing nuts. She could only have a burger if she had potatoes cooked in a pan as there could be nuts in the oil the chips are fried in. My friends daughter had a chicken burger which was so dry and on the verge of being burnt. My daughter ended up with a very sad looking chicken salad - the bacon bits were just pieces of fat & the chicken was stone cold having just been taken out of the fridge. The waitress was very nice and did adjust the bill however I am so disappointed that this restaurants food clearly isn’t freshly prepared and the menu (including the children’s menu) couldn’t cater for any food intolerance or allergy. We won’t be returning

    The food was very good, but my meal was delayed as the chefs had added cheese to the sauce. This wasn't on the menu, so I didn't feel the need to mention I am lactose intolerant. The server stated they add cheese to all pasta sauces. It seems ridiculous to add an allergen to all sauces without adding this to the menu. Apart from this our visit was very enjoyable.

    We enjoyed the lunchtime set menu, but two of our party said that the ‘spagbol’ was a bit bland and needed more meat. My chicken in breadcrumbs was a little dry, adding a couple of lemon wedges would be an improvement….

    Excellent meal for 5 of us on Tuesday this week. Really good menu choices. Very attentive service. Two of us had the seafood risotto and really enjoyed it. The only dish which was slightly disappointing was the chicken milanese which was slightly over-cooked and rather dry.

    Busy lunchtime in Southampton at half term. Food was lovely and the service was acceptable given a full restaurant. Had the benefit of a voucher which made the cost a nice treat. Very noisy as most restaurant are these days but looking forward to our next gathering at Carluccio's

    We were looking forward to our Brunch at Carluccios, but unlike the lunch menu, it was very disappointing. I had the Poached eggs and avocado, the sourdough was so thin (and burnt), that it had turned to mush and the eggs were very small. There was no red onion to speak of and I hunted for the tomato, overall very I was incredibly disappointed. My friend had the (cold) pancakes and thought that either the yoghurt or chocolate sauce was off, either way, again very underwhelming. The staff were not attentive and weren’t particularly accommodating when I asked for hot skinny milk (which I had ordered) instead of the cold milk they delivered. Overall, very unlike previous Carluccio experiences and not sure I would bother going back.

    The food in here is amazing, everything myself and my husband had was utterly delicious. It’s my second visit and I am already planning when i can come again. The menu is varied, we had steak, mine rare/nedium my husband’s medium. Both were cooked to perfection. I had a 50% off mains voucher which made the meal affordable, but the steaks would be well worth the money for a special occasion as they are so lovely. I had the tiramisu for pudding and it was the best I’ve ever had. The only downside is that the location is in the middle of a shopping mall and it was quite open and a bit cold. It also closes early because the mall closes at 7pm. I would love them to open a nice restaurant somewhere, we would be frequent patrons.

    From the moment we walked in to the goodbye at the door, the whole experience was wonderful. We have been to this restaurant, Southampton, many times and they guys here never fail in their service, food and the welcome we receive. If there is anything I could ask for are a few more gluten-free options. There are items on the menu that are gluten-free if you know where to look and understand the process involved, but not everyone is aware. There is nothing wrong with the business model that is Carluccios. Thank you.

    We had a pre theatre meal here at 5pm. The venue was absolutely freezing. When I queried this I was told about various issues with West Quay regarding the heating. Had to sit waiting for food for far too long in this temperature. All the staff were very pleasant and doing the best they could, and we were given a free coffee to warm us up. Clearly not an issue with the staff but building problems need to be rectified.
