    First time here and it didn’t disappoint. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Great recommendations from her I think her name was Elida? Good service. Food was absolutely delicious. Very tasty. I’d definitely recommend it.

    We had a lovely outdoor table, no one rushed us and our table staff were cheerful, intuitive and non-intrusive. We didn't like the diner beside us blowing a lot of smoke our way, but that is the risk you take when sitting outside.

    We booked an outside table for 5.15pm and it was lovely sitting there - the waiter made sure we were well looked after, it was a lovely place and the Italian menu was very good and it wasn’t expensive. The rest rooms were very clean. The atmosphere inside was buzzing by 6.30pm with tables full upstairs too. We’ll definitely go back again.

    Our food quality was poor the risotto was like rice pudding stoggy couldn't eat it when our waitress appeared to clear our plates and asked if everything was OK (a bit late)as we did not see her during our meal I told her about the risotto and her answer was I probably should have checked earlier. We were very disappointed as we had been there for breakfast on a few occasions and it was good.

    The last time that I've been there I missed the carbonara sauce, was a little bit dry. My husband's sea food linguine was strongly smelling, didn't smell fresh at 3pm.

    We have been to Carluccio's many time before Covid and always enjoyed the experience. We were extremely disappointed with our recent visit from not having the wine we wanted to items that were on the menu being discontinued. If an item is discontinued just take it off the menu. Do not know if we will ever go to Carluccio's again.

    A perfect spot for a catch up with the girls, or a romantic evening, located on Dublin's Dawson street, the Luas stop is just out side the door so no hassle getting home after enjoying a lovely meal and some very nice wine.

    Food was good and large portions. They have a gluten free menu, which is great. Service was quite slow and the staff there were very nice but seemed over-stretched. Ambience was just OK.

    Busy restaurant the night we visited. Service was slow initially and then we had our starters taken from us quite abruptly because our mains were ready! Starters were plain and the mains of beef ragu were tasteless. The coffee and our shared tiramisu was delicious.

    We had the bruschetta and calamari for starters with the carbonara for mains and a bottle of Pinot blush. It was delicious, filling yet very light. So good we could t say no to dessert. Waiter was Italian and was very polite, professional and friendly. Service was quick. Outdoor dining was great being a lovely day.

    I normally love this restaurant and come numerous times throughout the year. However, this was a very poor experience. Our table was booked for 7pm. We had to wait on the street for 15 minutes because another group (who had turned up late) were at it. We were then crammed into a table for 6 to have drinks while we waited for our table. Nobody came to take our drinks order until we eventually flagged down a member of staff after 10 minutes. We asked if the people at our table (who had been nursing one cocktail since we arrived) could be asked to vacate the table and were told no. We eventually got our table, nearly an hour after the actual booking time. The waitress tried to take away some of our starters while we were still eating. 7 mains came out more or less at once and we were told the other would be about immediately (so we all waited before starting ours). The 8th main didn't come out for ages, by which time the rest of the food had started to go cold. It was a disaster from start to finish.

    We ate at Carluccios on Tuesday and although the staff were lovely, the food was so poor. I ordered the prawns as a starter, they were described as. King prawns in a garlic and chilli marinara. When they arrived they were not king prawns, they were absolutely tiny and there were only 5 of them in a massive bowl which was filled with rocket. The sauce was just crushed tomatoes, no flavour of garlic and chilli. For main I ordered the beef ragu, which again was supposed to be served in a chilli and garlic marinara. It arrived 5 minutes after we had finished our starters and had no sauce at all, so was completely dry and bland, as if it had been cooked in the sauce that morning and then microwaved. Really bad food, would not recommend.

    Prompt service at what was a busy Sunday lunch time. Flavourful uncomplicated food with enough Italian authenticity. Portions generous. Good value for money given the location. Fairly noisy. Decor might benefit from some updating. All in all a very acceptable lunch in a restaurant to which I will return.
