I do love Carluccio’s at Stratford-on-Avon, the food is always excellent and the service is friendly. At the moment, we tend to book lunch for 1.30 or 2pm, to avoid the rush, and have now been to this Carluccio’s twice in a month.
It’s a great location, too, as a walk by the river is so enjoyable

Excellent service, the staff couldn’t be more helpful in providing food choices for our group some of whom were vegan and gluten intolerant. Food was fabulous, served quickly and our waiter was funny, polite and engaging.

Carluccio's in Stratford is a most welcoming restaurant with plenty of space. The service is excellent, making sure that guests are comfortable and sitting where they would like to be, waiters are friendly but discreet, never interrupting conversation but always available if needed. The food is well cooked and delicious and the choice of menu and wines are extremely good.

Very strange Italian. No pizzas for Children. But the menu had a varied choice. Our food was ok. Our waitress was lovely. Been to Stratford many times. Have never eaten in here before. The pate is excellent value. There are many lovely restaurants to choose. If we visit again perhaps we might try lunch instead.

Breakfast was excellent and great value
The vegan option was particularly tasted and we were served immediately which is handy when attending a matinee performance at the RSC

Love Carluccio’s food, I had seafood linguini which was gorgeous usually in places you only have a token amount of sea food. There was loads of huge muscle’s in this and so tasty. Glad to see that Peroni was back on draft. We both had a thoroughly good time. The food price wise is on a par as other restaurants but of much better quality and proper portion size.

My reservation coincided with the extensive Stratford Victorian Christmas Market, so the town was very crowded, with all that entailed, including a shortage of free parking spaces and a very full restaurant, which the staff struggled commendably to deal with, through sheer throughput volume. I thought they tried as hard as they could with what was a huge challenge - well done!

Attentive service and food of good quality. Noise level a little high at the start with a large party. Much better when they left! Particularly enjoyed the ice cream and sorbets.
