My husband and I visited on a Saturday evening. From the moment we entered into Carluccio's the atmosphere felt inviting and cosy, especially after walking in from the cold November weather! From the moment we entered the restaurant staff were very attentive and polite without being overpowering, just right. We had 3 courses and all of the food was delicious... More

Walked in to try and get a table for lunch on Saturday expecting a very long wait - restaurant was full but we were seated within 10 minutes which was great - also offered some pannetone whilst waiting which was a nice touch. Our main courses were lovely (stuffed peppers and ravioli)...maybe a little pricey for the portion size, but... More

My first visit here was with my children earlier in the year and i was inpressed. The meal was lovely and the packs for the kids were great. Sadly with each subsequent visit I felt it has got worse. The packs contain less and less making the meal poor value for money. On this particular (3rd) visit i ordered the... More

We called in for a snack and coffee in the early afternoon and I was bitterly disappointed. I have been sent face book pictures of delicious looking food which was absolutely nothing like I was presented with. Very overpriced, low quality food. Staff were cheerful and polite although service was slow. We won't be going back. Sorry.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and great food, service was good with freshly prepared dishes, we shared a starter, then both had a pasta dish, all were first class, if you like italian food this one will be for you!

We dined here on Saturday evening whilst having a girly weekend away in Chester. We've been here before and again we weren't disappointed! I'd booked online...so easy to do...and our table was waiting. The restaurant was packed and the atmosphere was great. The staff were wonderful...very attentive! We had a mixture of starters to begin...all were very tasty...and then for... More
