My meal was absolutely delicious. I had Vegan choices with a mushroom starter and followed by best pizza i have ever tasted, Also the Pecorino wine was lovely. The waiter was outstanding with his help. The ambience of the restaurant was brilliant.
I would definitely recommend Carluccio's

Great food and atmosphere.
Vegetarian options. Fantastic mocktails for drivers. Also a shop to take away goodies to enjoy at home or gifts.

A lovely restaurant near to the Opera House. We have visited several Carluccio's in the North West and so we knew we would get a high quality meal. I had booked although it was probably not necessary on this occasion. A very varied menu with dishes to suit all tastes and pocket. Jon, our server, was friendly and efficient with our order. The starters arrived promptly and were tasty. We both had ordered the Lasagne which arrived hot and was delicious. The portions are very generous and so we were unable to manage a dessert. A very good experience. .

Normally hate eating out alone, but had a craving for Pasta Giardiniera. Was greeted by Gemma who made me feel welcomed and took my order.
Then I enjoyed probably the largest and tastiest bowl of pasta I’ve had in a long time! Really satisfied my craving and had a nice chat with Gemma, who obviously enjoys her job at Carluccio’s judging by how she was interacting with customers.

Myself, husband & daughter arrived in Manchester last night (storm Brian was at its peak!). Wanted to have a meal before a show so choose Carluccio's which is close to Opera House. Door was opened to us (soaked through!) by a welcoming member of staff. Instant good vibes. Atmosphere, décor, music gave you a sense of warmth & pleasure. Staff were kind and attentive. Delicious food and wine. My husband gave feedback to a member of staff on our daughter's main course (not a complaint). She had chosen chicken Milanese which was well cooked and nicely presented but no carbohydrates and not filling. Felt it was very basic....simply grilled chicken and side salad. An attentive waiter overhead conversation and came to us to say that he'd had a word with the Manager and all our sweets were 'on the house'. We all felt that was such a nice gesture so a thank you from us for excellent customer service.
