Although it was great food, I was disappointed at the changes to the deluxe platter. No olives!!
It was far more varied before the change - will the original return ? However, lovely restaurant and staff as in all Carluccios .

Called on Saturday 31st May, having not booked, the staff were very polite and attentive found us a table and immediately brought us a wine list. The food was excellent. The service was also excellent, considering the restaurant was busy. My only complaint was that it was very noisy, with plates and pots etc being banged about, so I was unable to have a conversation across a two seater table.. The Location is perfect and it would of been nice to sit outside to eat had it been a nice evening. Prices were a little high for Italian, but that is what you would expect for a restaurtant in such a nice location. I would go back.

Nothing Italian about this at all. Food nothing to write home about and the service second rate. There is very little comfort in this canteen style restaurant. Having experienced the rustic warmth and ambience of a family run Italian restaurant, Carluccio's comes a very poor second. There is nothing that would make you want to linger, scoff and off seems the modus operendi. No grazie!

This was our second visit (the first was on Valentine's night when we "dropped in" with no reservation after the cinema) and again we were made very welcome. We didn't make a reservation but there were a few empty tables (not many!) and we were welcomed by the same maitre d' as on our first visit. The menu is wide-ranging, suitable for everyone and the drinks selection is good too. Lovely Italian red wines (I'm slowly working my way through them ...!). Once again a very enjoyable experience - we will return soon. Thanks!

Good food which is reasonably priced but the priice of the drinks is bordering daylight robbery. £6.50 for 1 glass of wine is absurd! Nice decor and good service.
