    Waitress and front of house were lovely and polite. Food was very tasty and fresh. Only thing was there were 5-6 things off the menu that just happened to be the things we wanted. Could have just been we ate late but this isn’t a negative Overall great place !!

    The usual all round good experience, a pity they closed so many restaurants. Unfortunately people want Subway prices for good food. Look forward our next meal at Carluccio’s

    My friends meal was cold I ended up eating alone . Difficult to attract the waiter. The profiterole sauce was cold not warm ,after the delay with main course just ate it cold .Such a shame as last time ( pre covid!!) I ate there it was excellent .Not asked if everything was all right with the meal at the end as I think they knew what the answer would be. The staff were very pleasant .

    Took husband for birthday breakfast, it was alright, overpriced for what you got, although we did the deal that included a juice and small coffee. A nice jester would perhaps a pastry or something for hubby foc for birthday. Las iguanas are very good at that sort of thing, maybe we have been spoilt in the past.

    We were waiting for 10 minutes to be seated - no staff in sight and only two tables so it wasn’t busy. I sent a special request for our table to be dressed nicely as it was our 3 year anniversary but our table was the same as all the rest with very uncomfortable seats and a very small table. Food was good quality but still rather expensive for what it was. I understand our waitress was having an awful day, and she did a brilliant job considering what was going on however it wasn’t fair that she was the only server working at 7pm and no other waiters were there for the rest of the night. Was hoping to have a lovely anniversary meal and it just felt like a cheap meal at a diner, which is not what was advertised. I would come back, but only for a lunch with a friend.

    Service was very slow. Had to request the drinks that came with the menu also the cutlery was not complete on the table which had not been wiped down previously. When the bill was requested it did not arrive, had to be requested again from another person. Only arrived when we got up from the table as if to go.

    I can see why Carluccios has shrunk and suffered since Antonio Carluccio’s sad passing. I used to enjoy dining there in previous years, but have rarely been since my local branch closed. The Cheshire Oaks restaurant made us feel rushed from the start, we had barely sat down before being asked to order drinks (can we look at the menu first please!!??) and the over-zealous service continued from there, with not so much as a smile to be seen from any of the staff. Food took 30 mins to arrive, was overly salted when it did come and overall, I’m sure Snr Carluccio would be spinning in his grave to know what is being served and how it’s being served, in his name. I fear that there’ll be no way back now for the chain and it won’t be long until the last branch closes. Based on our recent experience, we won’t be going again in the near future.

    The food was ready very quickly but with not much flavour (smoked salmon was pale and flavourless and the toast was soggy). The menu stated there were smoothies and when ordered I was presented with a glass with juice and ice. I queried it and got given the same glass with juice and no ice. Too expensive for not a good experience. I will not return.

    the pasta was ok, I can't say they were delicious, just acceptable, and the dessert, profiterole, tasted old and was very strong! I was completely disappointed! And my boyfriend had ice cream as a dessert and it was a very poor quality! disappointing! I had very high expectations considering how beautiful the dishes are presented on the internet

    The service staff done the best they could do, but was pretty obvious the place was under staffed. The food was very basic and very bland. I had a lasagne, which some would say is the easiest Italian dish to cook and get right, but it was worse than a microwave meal. The appetisers were ok, and I would perhaps visit again for drinks and nibbles, but never for a meal again.

    Took us an hour from being seated to receive our mains with a 40 minute gap from when we finished our starters, the apologies weren’t sincere enough, a drink was sent back as it tasted horrid, as an apology they deducted a round of drinks off our tab (table of 6) yet the bill was still near £140, was not worth the price at all, mains had next to no flavour as well. Will not be returning, very disappointed as it was to celebrate my partners birthday with friends.

    Sorry to say it wasn’t the best, had chicken with ham and potatoes but the chicken was raw and had to be sent back. I believe the company needs to reset and get back to basics it’s very tired.

    Came here for New Year’s Eve with my family. Was made away a few hours before that they hadn’t had a delivery so there will be a couple of things not available. Upon asking what would be available I was told lasagne, carbonara etc would be available and that it was mainly the starters that weren’t available. When we got there, the above weren’t available and the menu was pretty poor to say the least!! Staff tried to make the most of a dreadful experience. They managed to ‘throw’ together a couple of lads he’s in which they were tasteless (no it’s wasn’t covid) the pasta was still hard in the middle and was burnt on the edges! I’m a lover for Italian but I am shocked at what was given on Friday.

    No lasagne or carbonara available. It only takes 15 minutes to knock up a carbonara using eggs, so I asked the server how come they'd run out and was told they had run out of sauce. Sauce? Surely its made fresh?
