The staff here are truly wonderful. I used to take my elderly parents to Carluccios in Cobham, which had sadly now closed, but fortunately many of the staff have now moved over to the Walton restaurant. When we walked in (for the first time in many months due to the Covid lockdown), the staff recognised my parents instantly (even in masks!), and gave them such a wonderful warm welcome that both were moved to (happy) tears. I cannot express how grateful I am to the staff here for making my parents feel so much more than "customers" - it is like meeting up with special friends every time. Five stars all round, and heartfelt thanks.

Met family for breakfast. Had to sit outdoors due to being in Tier 2 but every effort had been made to ensure it was an enjoyable experience. Staff were friendly and welcoming and ensured heaters were available to cope with the chilly morning. A very enjoyable breakfast which was great value

Had a table outside which worked well with the heaters. Food and choice were good. Service was slow but that was because there were not enough waiters but those that were there did a splendid job. Enjoyed the visit and will go again.

Good and friendly service and food. However, the restaurant felt empty and the general ambience a little cold in feeling, and the piped music far too loud.

I’m a regular here as it’s convenient, reliable and just a nice place to eat - kids love it too.
Just a shame they seem unable to source any decent seafood..

Overall once there, all good.

However the booking experience not so. OpenTable advised that there were tables available for 08:45 and 09:30. By the time we'd decided on 09:30, this was no longer available and the options were 08:45 or 12:00. We chose 08:45 and assumed that the restaurant was going to be busy.

Having arrive at 08:45, we were advised that the restaurant was not open until 09:00. Additionally, it was exceptionally quiet (unsurprising given the availability that OpenTable were offering).

My complaint (and concern for the restaurant) is that OpenTable is not offering bookings for the correct opening hours, or displaying availability of tables when there are clearly plenty to be used.

Glad to see Carluccio’s still open. Good, tasty Italian food. This is not typical Italian cafe food, but Carluccio’s unique recipes giving you the authentic taste of Italy. No spaghetti bolognese in sight! One of our party had a problem with a dish, but the staff offered an alternative when she complained.

We visited Carluccio’s from date night on Saturday night. The restaurant was well planned out to accommodate for Covid and we were sat really quickly (at a table outside as requested). We had a cocktail each that were both delicious and arrived really quickly.
We had the calamari and prawns to start which were both absolutely lovely. My partner had the sirloin steak and I had the seafood pasta.... yum. Our waitress was really friendly and helpful and the food great.
It is not the cheapest place to eat but well worth it.
Great choice on the menu and lovely atmosphere.
We’ll be back for sure 😀

Superb experience, staff attentive especially to the member of my party with a gluten intolerance. Excellent choice of good quality food for all three of us. My wife who is gluten intolerant usually only has at best a couple of choices but she had a whole menu to choose from. My daughter who is Vegan also had plenty of choice.

Three of us had Sunday lunch at Carluccios in Walton. Booking was easy. I had the chicken liver pate starter which was delicious. Two of us had the chicken saltimbocca and one the chicken Milanese. All were fab. We were well looked after by our waiter. Would go back and recommend.
