How strange to visit Carluccio's on Saturday for the first time and now to hear today that the great chef has passed away, how sad for everyone. As a footnote our visit on Saturday was a lovely experienceMore

The food is always fresh and delicious. Alvaro really made super enjoyable for all of us with his super friendly yet professional service, nothing was too much trouble and added to the whole "Italian Family" feel. Great food always and super customer service, thanks.
