I've always thought the welcome and service here, is second to none, even just having drinks or coffees. The manager/ess obviously places a great deal of importance of customer service and it really shows. The toilets are always spotless. I personally ate from the Festive Menu (£17,99 2 courses) and enjoyed a anti pasta starter and the chicken with sage... More

Good italian food, nice area, more quiet than inside cabot circus even it's part of it. I recommend for any time of the day, I prefer their coffees than in costa or any coffee brand you can find in cabot. In summer you can enjoy the terrace, love it!

We went to the Quaker's Friars (Bristol) location. The restaurant itself has fairly chic look to it, giving the impression that it's more of a dining experience than it really is. When in reality it seems many of their meals are pre-prepared and possibly frozen to reheat. I had the stuffed peppers which were not heated through properly, so I... More

Surprisingly quiet for lunch taking into account its Cabot Circus location, heaving with Christmas early shoppers. For mains, we ordered chicken liver pâté, which my friend said was very good, while I had spaghetti carbonara, which was not quite hot enough for my taste. Side dishes of broccoli and funghi complemented the meal well. The fungui in garlic and chilli... More

We arrived here while visiting Cabot circus. We sat outside and enjoyed the lovely sunshine on a winter's day. The coffees were fine but not a good selection of pastries or cookies.

I went to Carluccio's for an early Christmas meal with work. Choices were from a three-course festive menu, which always fills me with foreboding. In fact, Carluccio's handled themselves with great aplomb - the antipasti were a generous selection of meats and olives, coated in a delicious chili olive oil. Chicken with cream and herb sauce was excellently cooked -... More

We stopped here on two occasions for a break whilst shopping. We didn't eat but did but panettone to take away which was fab and highly recommended. It was very busy so we had to wait but the waiting staff were friendly and attentive.

I love coming to Carluccios, it is always such a lovely experience, the food and the service is great. Last time we came in we were served by a young, enthusiastic waitress called Vicky, she was efficient and friendly. I had a penne giadenera which is a personal favourite and my wife had the seafood linguine which was delicious. Keep... More
