The service was efficient and friendly. Food was good though not terribly exciting. My impression was that Carluccio used to serve better fare up to a few years ago.

I avoid restaurant chains of any sort because they are hit and miss, depend on the branch and management and tend to be there for largely corporate profit at the expense of uniform quality and diner satisfaction. Tried this one (not the same location) a few times in the past but never returned as i thought it was just a... More

8 of us were booked in on a Sunday night and must say my meal was delicious. Garlic Bread starter followed by Chicken Saltimbocca. Only negative is the chicken could have a little more sauce. Unfortunately when it came to desserts there was very limited choice; no chocolate&rum fudge cake, no bread&butter pudding, no lemon tart...limited choice. Waitress certainly trying... More

I have visited this Carluccios many times over the past year as I have a customer in close proximity. It can get quite loud in there if you go in at lunchtimes or dinner, but otherwise, it’s a great place to go in and work for a while. There are tables in close proximity to power sockets, and the staff... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
