We really enjoyed our breakfast treat.
The coffee is excellent, the food delicious and the waitress, professional and easy to talk to.
This is not our first time and definitely will not be our last.

Spent a lovely evening with my 2 best friends on Friday evening.
Love Carluccio's, and the staff here are always so great.
What more could you want, fab food, drink, staff, setting and with fab friends.
Definitely highly recommend a Carluccio's wherever you are.

Easy to book and the restaurant is well suited to COVID distance rules etc - so not much has changed since we used to go there before the pandemic. Food and service were excellent as ever.

A favourite place for me to visit. The food is always excellent, the service is usually amazing, friendly staff, not too overcrowded and it’s got great views over the water. The staff will also go over and above to ensure that we get what we want including making me the exact type of hot chocolate I wanted (even though it wasn’t on the menu) and swapping (for example) salad for potatoes without charging extra. It’s also very safe from a COVID-19 perspective and there is a deli and shop as well with some lovely products. Breakfast is also really good, can’t recommend this place highly enough.

Have visited this restaurant many times in the past and pleased it is still running despite Covid closure pressure.
Generally like, Italian style food and this offers pretty good choice with Fixed Menu good VFM
( though might offer another dessert alrernative to ice cream)
Compares favourably with Cafe Rouge 'prix fix' next door, though pleadant enough too.
Ambience pleasant - if in main dining area - and service generally prompt and welcoming

We had a lovely time at Carluccio’s! It was myself, my dad and my son (who’s nearly two) that went for breakfast, and it was lovely! Not too busy and staff were so very nice. Would recommend to anyone.
Food was really good too! Lovely breakfast!

Very few diners due to Covid so the social distancing measures did not feel restrictive at all. Food was well cooked but on a par with less expensive places wherein I have eaten.

We ate at lunchtime, there is a fixed price lunch menu but we chose from the main menu, the fixed price menu is very good value for money. Food was very good, varied choice on the main menu, served in a timely manner. Engaging staff, professional service, and, very importantly in these challenging times, very COVID secure. Would recommend

Very happy to see this restaurant had reopened. My husband and I have used it a lot over the past few years , and it has always served good quality, well presented, properly prepared food. The staff are, unfailingly, lovely and efficient , without being pushy. We will, of course, return as it is consistently the best of the ‘ chain’ eateries around at the moment.

We decided on Carluccio’s to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. We were immediately greeted on arrival and shown to our table for 6. The service was very good and we were never left waiting but also given time to have a break between courses which was nice.
The food was excellent and good value for money. Altogether a pleasant experience.

Was told set menu not available at this location, yet it was available at this location online, which was why we booked it. As it was a Saturday, we would not have been able to get a table elsewhere. Therefore, it was more costly than we hoped. Food was OK, overpriced for the quality
