After deciding to come here, felt like a waste of an evening.

Service was slow, bad, unattended .

Starters were too salty, thr main was so dry. And they don't compliment each other.

All in all never going here again

Having previously visited this chain in Stratford on Avon, we thought this would be a safe bet. We should have walked away when it took them ages to seat us in a half empty restaurant, the pasta dishes we ordered arrived tepid and tasteless, we sent them back but second time round they were no better. The coarse salt dishes are off putting, previous table occupants finger prints still showing in them- how can that be hygienic?

Went there on Easter Sunday for lunch, not busy at all. Ordered calamari and the lasagne. Calamari was good but this is the first place I've been where they don't provide a sauce or a dip for it, so tasted bland and dry. I could live with that..the lasagne that arrived was burnt to a crisp, extremely dry, no sauce, I've had a 99p tesco value microwaved lasagne that would put this o shame! It was just messed up, tasted like it was 2 weeks old and reheated..never again would I visit a carluccios, place needs to be shut down!

Been a few times for breakfast lovely change to the English breakfast only gripe hence overall review a 3 is that the salt is in a finger bowl bit like peanuts on the bar scenario u hope that people have washed their hands I wouldn't have any based on that reason it's off putting especially when salt is white and there are black specs in it. Salt grinder to remedy that would then get an overall 5 from me.

Ended up going in here to have a quick working lunch, it was better than I expected, pasta was okay, service was quick and we were in and out within the hour so not bad at all, prices are a little high but then it is Richmond.

p.s. its too loud for a business lunch venue.
