“Decent Food and Consistent”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Food: We ordered the salumi and tomato salad for starters and the trofie pesto and lasagne for our entrees. Both starters were classic and good. The trofie pesto pasta was very salty. The lasagne was yummy.

Drinks: We ordered two glasses of white wine.

Price: 45.20 GBP for two people. Reasonable for decent Italian food.

Ambiance: If the weather is nice and you get to sit outside it’s nice to enjoy the hustle and bustle of St. Christopher’s Place. If you don’t want to deal with people walking by or the random street musicians then request to sit inside.

Service: Super friendly staff.

Would I go back? Yes. It’s one of our go-to spots when we’re in the mood for Italian and don’t want to spend an arm and a leg. You always know what you’re going to get when you go to Carluccios. It's also great for breakfast.

“Good for coffee, always busy”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

My review is mixed as we have tried the St. Pancras and Brunswick locations and find that their main food dishes average. Better for coffee and desserts. Pricey and service is usually friendly and helpful. More of a local get together than a great place to dine.

“Poor food, miniscule portions”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This was my first time at Carluccio's and it will definitely be my last. The service was extremely slow (nearly an hour for the drinks to arrive) but by far the worst thing was the ridiculous portion sizes- they are child-sized!

The insalata di mozzarella consisted of a handful of withered rocket leaves, a few cherry tomatoes and four small pieces of torn mozzarella with the stingiest drop of olive oil. For mains I ordered the steak with rosemary roasted potatoes which arrived on a wooden board overflowing with steak juices which the waitress promptly spilled all over my place. Four new potatoes cut in half and a small steak did barely anything to satiate my hunger. Needless to say, I didn't bother with dessert but went home and cooked myself a proper dinner instead.

Quality is really not so good, service below average and portion sizes laughable. You'd need to order at least six dishes which would end up getting quite expensive for such substandard food. Don't waste your time or money- there are so many other fantastic restaurants to visit in London!

“Great location for lunch”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Second time here. It was a beautiful day and though there wasn't room for sitting outside, we were seated in a room that was open to the sidewalk. The service was a bit on the slow side, but we each enjoyed our lunch. I had the Salade Nicoise (again!) and loved it! We asked for lattes made with "rich" coffee, but the latte was a bit weak on coffee flavor. Same with the Arabica bean coffee gelato -- low on coffee flavor. But the dark chocolate gelato was very rich and yummy!
