Really good choice for kids meals, fresh and healthy. Good selection of starters and mains for adults and excellent service. A great choice for pre theatre dinner.

Sat outside and was served quickly although our order took a bit of time: my friend had an allergy and the waitress double checked to make sure the order was correct. This is a lovely branch of Carluccios

Disappointed by the two vegan choices which hadn't changed since my last visit 14 months ago.The escalope was luke warm and not crispy, the portion size was meager in comparison to the cost. The only vegan pudding choice had also not changed and the cake was dry and overpriced. We won't be returning unless they change the menu dramatically....very disappointing.

The staff were , obviously, under pressure. I could only see three waiting staff for a fairly busy restaurant. We were almost two hours for three courses.

Booked a table for 11:00am pre theatre brunch, knew it would be busy.
Not enough staff, the one’s they had were very harassed and very distracted, so no time for any follow up once drinks or food was eventually delivered. Food was good, although not as hot as it could have been.
Understand the industry is suffering with staff shortages, so why pack the place out (………of course profit over service!)

We booked for our anniversary, when we arrived our table wasn’t ready so we were asked to take our drinks out shown to a table with wet seats as it was raining. But service wasn’t bad when our table was ready

Quite a regular at lunchtimes before going to the cinema. Good selection of food on offer and good service. £12.95 for two courses is good value.

Good value authentic Italian food and efficient, friendly service. Very close to the RSC theatres, so ideal for pre-theatre meals. Varied menu that includes seasonal variations, good vegetarian options and food that kids love too. Reliably good. We’ll be back!

As vegans we were a little bit limited for choice - also even though it advertises that you have vegan croissants apparently they are not stocked anymore!
