    The food was really bad. The worst was the lasagna which was either way over cooked or old, chewy. The cheese in my pasta had coagulated at the bottom of the bowl. Dirty fork, dirty glass. Go somewhere else!

    Service was very poor. We were left waiting an hour from ordering to receiving our food with no explanation as to the delay. When our food eventually arrived (we both ordered the same dish) it was cold and undercooked and had to be sent back. When it arrived again there was no difference in temperature. Having waited so long, we were left with no choice but to eat it. Very disappointing and we will not be returning.

    went back to carluccios because i’d been before and loved it and my family always recommends it when we’re in dublin. my boyfriend ended up being served raw chicken TWICE and the manager tried to tell us that it was just a veiny piece of chicken. i am appalled.

    Carbonara sauce and risotto were so watery and had no taste at all. I ordered a spritz and It was no fizzy. Like if the bottle have been open the day before. It is not a real Italian restaurant. I’m sure you can find a better one in the city center The only good thing was the buratta.

    I had cabanara which was luke warm when it arrived. Sent it back. When it arrived it was steaming on top but like warm underneath. The waitress offered to take it back but my mum was halfway through her meal so I didn't send it back. I won't be returning but I would recommend sticking to salads as thry looked good.

    We booked a table outside as we wanted to be safe from COVID however all the outside tables were far too close to each other and we were simply too uncomfortable to stay. Unfortunately we didn’t get to try the food so we can’t give a fair review on it.

    We got the risotto and the seafood linguini and they were both undercooked. The risotto was so hard to eat. Major improvement is needed. Will definitely NOT be going back

    Food was dreadful I am a regular always order the same thing so disappointed this time. We sent the food back staff were great got different meals which were not much better. The breaded chicken was dry, burnt and served with dry rocket lettuce and tomato on the side. Definitely need the old Chef back or a new one!!
