We love drag shows, but have only seen them in the USA where the audience is almost all gay men. Not here. We were the only gay couple. The rest were groups of women there to celebrate birthdays or for hen parties (bridal groups). The show was tremendous. The emcee was very, very funny. All of the women were quick-witted... More

I can't get over how amazing Caluzzi is!! The entertainment is so hilarious! The drag queens literally are your waitress' and then after dinner they do the most amazing shows - I loved them! The food is so delicious. I got a soup and garlic bread to start and this was then followed by my choice of one of 5... More

We went to Caluzzi for a work xmas party - would definitely recommend! Such a great night, amazing entertainment, incredible service and food and drink. We are actually going to make this an annual thing because we all had so much fun. Ignore any bad reviews - they have no idea what they are talking about and obviously need to... More

Terrible food sad entertainment . The worst wine list so bad that the three wines we ordered were almost undrinkable . The salmon was over cooked dry and powdery the potatoes were soggy tasteless slightly warm tired and inedible . The soup looked like bilious liquid that one sees in the sick bowl . All in all probably the most... More

We visited Caluzzi as a large work group. What fantastic entertainment! The "girls" made everyone feel quite at home and the dinner and show were first class. This was the first time I had been back for a number of years and this place never fails to disappoint me. Highly recommend if you love to have fun. :-)

We really enjoyed our evening at Caluzzi. The restaurant is a normal size small restaurant - so don't expect a show the size of "Les Girls". Instead expect a super friendly welcome where the wonderful performers are also your servers and are always ready to stop and chat. Lots of laughs, a nice simple yummy menu and easy, friendly atmosphere.... More

Such a fun night out and something a bit different to do for a birthday/celebration. The staff have the night organised to a fine art. Would not recommend to those who are super shy and don't like to be made to stand up in front of a big group. Great experience with great music, costumes, acting and lots of laughs.... More
