Yes it's a chain but that's not a bad thing. The food is really good and most importantly they cater well for GLUTEN FREE. The big thing about the place is the customer service. It's always spot on. There was a small minor issue in the drinks order and when we mentioned it they resolved it and provided the drink... More

Went here with my 20 month old son, who was asleep in his buggy, and the staff were so accommodating and didn't seem put out about having a pram there (unlike Dimitri's where I had tried first). Food was great too, and the service top class. Will definitely go again.

Great, simple food, really good location and reasonably priced too! We went on a cold rainy March night but it would be lovely to go on a summer's night and sit outside! Service was good both by our table waitress and the head waiter who noticed us using our garlic bread to mop up our sauce and getting us some... More

Carluccio doesnt own his chain anymore but they still offer a good consitant standard of food even if the specials dont seem to change that often. Service is usually good so it is a nice to go if one is uncertain. Not sure about the location. Spinningfields seems to have ruined retailing in King Street and judging by the lack... More

Admittedly, the restaurant wasn't very busy as it was early in the evening, but nevertheless, the staff were very pleasant, efficient and friendly. Our meal was very enjoyable and tasty. All in all a great place to eat before visiting the Opera House which is just a few steps away.
