Nice place, average fare - nothing that exciting for me, typical dishes all ok, nothing stood out. Staff nice.

Amazing value (we had the special fixed price festive menu). Food was delicious, generous portions and the vibe was chilled.

Went for early light dinner. Festive menu had some tasty choices but surprisingly few pasta dishes, could have gone a la carts for those but festive menu great value. Three courses £20, can't go wrong. Got busy quickly on a Saturday night so probably best to book. Mixed anti pasti, saltimboca chicken , cherry gelato were my three All very... More

I'm so delighted you enjoyed your dinner with us on Saturday; the team here works tirelessly to ensure every guest enjoys themselves and it means a tremendous amount to read your review. I couldn't agree more that the Festivo menu is pretty great value (though, of course, I would say that). Between the value and the food quality, Festivo Menu... More

Definitely can recommend for breakfast. Had a frittata that is no longer on the menu but waitress Paulina kindly agreed to arrange for it anyway. Food arrived quickly and was very tasty.

Just had early supper and had Beef Ragu. Very disappointed it had large pieces of grizzle which was inedible. Pointed out to waiter. No apology.

The menu is so far behind great independent places to eat in Brighton, and a poor experience even compared to other chain restaurants. The menu is dull and dated, and limited choice for vegetarians. My grilled peppers were cold, and obviously from one of the plastic tubs that I saw whizzing past me. Waiters were untrained to deal with my... More

I go to Carluccios a lot - but today was a big disappointment. The restaurant was really cold due mainly to the shop door being open. Twice I complained and once managed to get the door closed. It was pointed out they were doing a promotion on their shop produce and the door was left open so as to flog... More

Popped in for a light lunch. I chose the chicken salad which arrived very quickly. At first I was impressed at the speed of service but when I saw what this salad comprised of I wasn't surprised. It looked like someone had taken half a bag of ready made mixed leaves, thrown in about 5 small pieces of chicken and... More

It's a rare occurrence but happens occasionally where service staff actually smile...credit goes to the management team for this....a tasty contemporary version of a fry up breakfast was a treat...spot the spelling mistake in the menu...

Most but not all of my experiences at Carluccios have been good ones. My last visit was very disappointing. It was very busy and poorly staffed. We waited to be shown our table for more than we should have. Our meal came in well under 10 mins which was not a bad thing but shows it had been probably microwaved.... More
