“A particular style, but always agreeable”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Is it a restaurant, or is it a coffee house? Bordering on the simple, Carluccio's is nonetheless a quality place to eat, with fresh tasty Italian food and good coffee as well. The restaurant is light and airy, the staff are friendly, and I think the prices are reasonable on balance. The layout is not what I would call intimate, but it has a nice atmosphere. The deli section is a delight, though pricey, and it's hard to walk past it without buying something. Overall, it's a restaurant to be recommended.

“Consistent fare in this fairly new restaurant”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The beauty of Carluccio's is that the standard tends to be consistent across the Group. The Walton on Thames outlet is no different. For a town centre restaurant it has a pleasant outlook - very light. The menu is the same as any other Carluccio and the service is good and pleasant.
Altogether a pleasant inexpensive experience.

“Dissapointing”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

Might have been my expectations but I always thought Carluccio's was a quality chain restaurant - so my expectations might have let me down.
The staff were friendly and able to seat us with out a reservation despite being a busy Friday night, and they didn't rush us.
But the food was such a let down. Not many vegetarian options pasta wise (strangely no tomato sauce based pasta dishes for veggies) I asked if they could make the Puttanesca with out anchovies - I was told no, as the sauce is pre mixed - I've never heard this in an Italian before.
So I ordered the Giardiniera - the fried Spinach balls were deep fried to a crisp and not sure what the sauce was supposed to be, but it was a thin soup like broth not a sauce with the pasta just sat on top. I didn't get the impression the dish was pasta in a watery broth, it certainly didn't say that on the menu.
Disappointing, and have been to much better Italian restaurants, even chain ones. Won't be back.

“Good food, good coffee”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Nice and well run, with friendly staff. A good range of food, though a little expensive for what it is.

Popular with couples and families, it's good enough for a birthday meal and casual enough for a coffee.
