I love going to Carluccio. Staff always nice, ready to answer all your questions and look like they love the food served too. Sometimes noisy and quite pricey, but excellent quality. Many options to on the menu to suit all Italian food lovers.

As we were staying at the Forbury, we decided to eat at Carluccio's as it is next door on the square.
My wife and I had a starter and main, bread & pasta. It was lovely. The restaurant is modern and open with full panels of glass giving it a light and airy feel. The food was excellent as was the level of service from the staff. Good value.

Felt really comfortable eating on my own outside in the sunshine. Really good food. Service friendly but not overbearing. Good people watching.

Five family members ate at this restaurant as a celebration of my daughter's graduation. The food was tasty, well presented and inexpensive. The service was excellent and the premises clean (including the toilets). We arrived at 5:00pm which might explain why it was quiet and the restaurant surely can't be blamed for this. In any case we created our own atmosphere.

I'm glad we didn't read the negative reviews, because we might have missed out on a thoroughly enjoyable meal!

Came here for a meal with work colleagues, having heard such great raves on it. Although the evening went okay, there was definitely a lack of atmosphere (maybe because it was a weekday).
Also just a small gripe, it would have been good not to have had to ask for our plates to be cleared away. It was almost as if we were an after thought. I imagine this was due to a lack of waiting staff. The food was fine, although lack of desserts, but this was overcome.

Would we return? Probably not as had hoped for something a little more special. That said, maybe you should try for yourself. It could just have been a bad night.
