    The food is consistently good at Carluccios and the decor very stylish. I did feel that the portions had got smaller and the prices higher though!

    Thank you for a wonderful dining experience. Attentive service, friendly and accommodating staff, delicious food, relaxed atmosphere. Dinner with 2 adults and 2 children, who really enjoyed themselves and the food. We arrived 10mins early, which wasn't a problem and we're seated straight away.

    I go to Carluccio’s since they opened the first restaurant. Food now is not bad but it has been much better, buildings are run down, the deli a shadow of what used to be, so and it is now very expensive.

    Food was very good. Service was initially slow but then improved. Low noise level when we were there, and a good size table for our party of 6. We would return.

    Unfortunately not a good experience, If I was the chef I would be completely embarrassed sending food out in such a sorry state. Cold, limp food is just not acceptable, shame.

    It was very busy pre show time, the tables are very close together and it was very noisy. We ordered 2 risottos one from the specials and one from the main menu. They arrived in good time but it was clear that the special had been sitting ready for some time waiting for the other order. It was warm rather than hot and started to congeal, as risotto does when standing. The other was perfect.

    Too noisy with a canteen atmosphere. Children screaming is not compatible with relaxed dining. Staff too conspicuous about cleaning tables spraying products - couldn’t it be done more discreetly with less flourish? Staff looking but not seeing what needs to be done but I know staffing issues. Training could still be done. Bit disappointing really and feel that Carluccios is going the same way as Cafe Rouge …..

    So glad to find a Caluccio's open - sadly, our regular one (Spittalfields) closed. Service and food is still very good and represents great value when dining out in London.

    Received drinks with starters - halfway through starters mains arrived. Waiter hovered and asked if he should bring it back! Food service felt very rushed although we weren’t hassled to leave after. Very noisy and near service area. Shame - food ok

    It was a warm summer Saturday so the area was very busy, the restaurant was extremely noisy but we had booked and didn't have time to look elsewhere. The food was good so no complaints there. We probably wouldn’t dine there again because of the noise levels,

    To say mediocre is flattering. Service negligible - not busy but you have to signal for service - no monitoring. Wish I had refused to pay service charge.

    We had breakfast and it was quite poor. Overcooked pancetta, poached eggs cooked in too much vinegar, dry toast. Poorly presented and poor service. Better choices for breakfast, i.e. The Ivy Brasserie and Bills.

    Very well looked after by our attentive staff. Seasonal starter of rhubarb plus ? on toast not such a hit, rhubarb underdone. Bruschetta needed a little more olive oil. Mains of risotto were both fine. White wines tasty, reds served a little too warm, they taste better when at a cooler temp. Good ambience and overall a pleasant experience. Will go again.

    I often go to Carluccio’s and like their simple clean food. This time it was a bit too noisy and busy, we had to wait a bit before getting the service staffs’ attention. I was recently in the Richmond Carluccio’s on a weekday and it was much better.

    It was during the Chelsea Flower Show we expected it to be fuller' The food was very good except for the Arancini which were much smaller than i was used to on earlier visits' The cheaper menu was only available at lunch time which is likely to reduce the number of visits I make in the future
