Convenient for our family as it is a five minute walk to access. Indoor and outdoor service - ideal on those summer and balmy evenings. Great range of foods available with that Italian specialty if so desired. Licensed with good range of wines and spirits and foods. Can be a little noisy and crowded at times. Suggest strongly that you... More

Went you go to an Italian restaurant, you expect Italian pasta. Pasta isn't that hard to make so really it was disappointing. I think they need a better chef in the kitchen. With the wide number of choices in that local, I won't be back.

Visited with a group for a birthday dinner. Right from the moment we walked in the doors the staff interacted with us and kept us entertained all evening. We started some starters and most tried something from the special board and were very happy with their selections. Will visit agaain

Met up with friends for dinner on a Tuesday night and found that it was extremely busy even though it was so early in the week. Not that this was a problem as there were plenty of staff willing to take your order and bring it to you. The food is quite good and the serves are quite generous, so... More

Carlucci's was one of the first restaurants to open in this popular eating area and has kept up their high standards of food and decor. You can pop in for a coffee and cake or have a full meal.
