                Both ordered the seafood linguine. Very little seafood to be found and food, lots of mussel shells but no mussels and two pieces of squid. Would think twice about returning. There was quite a while where there was no music playing. Music and ambiance should be paramount. Waitress was good.

                Service was great as had a lovely waitress! Very poor vegan options they need to up their game here and that is the only reason I will not give 5 stars.

                Great to be back at Carluccio’s. We had a super meal last Saturday - starter, main course, desert, espresso and a bottle of Prosecco. The service was friendly as always and we look forward to returning very soon.

                We regularly visited your place and loved your food. Last Saturday 15th we were v disappointed with the food also waited for half an hour before the starters arrived. Main meal was cold. We hope it will improve the next time we return. Regards. Susan

                Nice experience, our server was great but not too intrusive. The food was alright, a bit dry for the chicken milanese but I strongly recommend the garlic potatoes! However it was very loud during lunch time, but with a crowded place you can't really expect something else. Would recommend this place anyways!

                The service was good ,our waitress was very pleasant. Atmosphere was good . The Food was a big disappointment...We ask for 4 starters instead of mains courses. We ask for Prawns..we got 5 prawn and a bowl full tomato cherry and a soggy bread inside the bowl ! Horrible mushrooms soup (never got the foccacia ) Bocaccini ..was the only good thing .. Bruschetta / was a piece of flat bread completely wet with gigantic pieces of tomatoes..not was I was expecting of a bruschetta. Overall the food was really bad . Not looking foward to go back again

                Unfortunately not a good experience at all, terribly disappointed with this restaurant, my friend recommended it and I just accepted it would be good but the wine was warm, fish was so badly overcooked, and the toilets left a lot to be desired, I wish it had been better, I don't like giving such bad feedback but I must be honest. I will never return.

                Very nice cheerful server and warm atmosphere. Calamari starter very chewy and not pleasant to eat. Some of the Parma ham on antipasto plate was also very chewy. Lasagne was just ok (don’t think I’ll have it again). The seafood linguine was very good. The panna cotta was delicious.

                Ordered the salad for main and the chicken was the sliced chicken you can get in a convenience store pack. They forgot my starter and when it arrived it was ice cold from being over refrigerated. Didn’t have 2 dishes on the menu when wanted to order and same issue with a different wine on stock at to what was asked fot

                Lovely food and great service from the staff. All Covid checks carried out at the door which was reassuring.

                Service was great, lovely venue and with great food. A little too much garlic on the bruschetta but rafu was delicious

                I visited the establishment with my mum and the lady who served us could not have been more helpful. This has always been our experience hence why we are returning customers.
