Husband and I were staying nearby and popped into town for dinner on a Friday night. Very happy with the service and meal we had here. Have eaten at other Carluccios branches but we both really enjoyed the friendly, accommodating service we received here. Especially the guy who had lost a finger playing ice hockey - thanks for a great... More

We came here this morning for lunch. The food was ok, the service was very good. Was really busy outside, but the waitress (Monika) was really good, always smiling and very attentive.

We couldn't find a place with an open kitchen at around 21:30 on a wednesday night. Then we stumbled upon Carluccio's. The food was ok and it was served fast (and the drinks even faster). What more can you want for a late dinner? :) Maybe a bit more choice, but that's just nitpicking.

Hi there, Great to hear you managed to find us, we are indeed one of the few places who still serve food later in the evening in Stratford! Sorry to hear you felt the menu was a bit limited, our food is cooked fresh so if there is ever anything you fancy that's not on the menu let us know... More

We had a late breakfast probably, 11.45ish on a Sunday morning. I think probably the kitchen would have preferred we went with the lunch menu, but truth be told there was nothing on it that appealed at that time of day. The staff are helpful, we would have liked to sit outside but no seating was available. The bill came... More

I decided to meet my friend here, who was bringing her baby, as we have always found the atmosphere and the staff friendly and welcoming.

We often visit the theatre in Stratford Upon Avon, and Carluccio's is now by our most favourite place to eat pre or post theatre, not just because of the convenience of the location, but there is always something new on the menu, service is good, efficient, and the food really tasty! Yesterday Monica served us, and was terrific - a... More

I've visited a number of restaurants in the Carluccio chain over the years and this was my least favourite. Nothing wrong with it but the interior felt more like a fast food restaurant than a decent Italian and the food was OK but nothing special. I also found the menu a bit limited and its not the cheapest. On a... More
