Excellent food and service - shame about the screaming baby on the next table but that can't always be helped.

Perfect customer service! Lovely staff and friendly atmosphere. Shame that a couple courses on the gluten free menus were not available but can appreciate it being busy on Father’s Day.
Overall, lovely experience. Would definitely recommend!

Great food, service and value for money. Great location and the staff managed to open up the terrace for dinners. So much rain I don't think anyone expected to be sitting outside but the sun was shinning. Have eaten at Carluccio's a few times, also at other locations and have always had a great experience. We'll be back.

Really great to get out to dinner again. The food was delicious and the service was faultless. Quite pricey at £185.00 for 3 people but I guess they’re making up for lost time. I would definitely go back.

Food and Service both excellent (our server was fantastic). Only issue was the noise level - music ok but just the general noise from people talking on top of this meant that we needed to shout to be heard by others on our table - adding more to the overall noise levels. Otherwise, really good and I would still thoroughly recommend Carluccios, Portsmouth

A treat to be at Carluccio’s after so long. Busy and fun. Food is lovely and good value. Staff, as in the past, were charming and always right there when you needed something. An excellent evening.

Have always loved Carluccios. First time in about 15 months and it's still good. Was busy and felt like staff were stretched. Enjoyed that wasn't pestered and left to enjoy the lovely food which was delivered hot (a pet hate of mine when it is only warm and on cold plates).

We had a starter each and a main course. We also had 2 alcoholic drinks which were quite overpriced. Total bill was £72 not exactly a cheap night out.
