We had a meal here yesterday - a party of 10 looking for a tasty meal before we went off to the theatre. The restaurant is very beautiful set in a great building. It had a lovely christmas feel. We started with a selection of bread and olives - lovely. For my main I had lasagna and green beans. Really... More

Although very busy, the restaurant coped flawlessly with friendly service and timely delivery of food. Several small special requests were quickly and happily fulfilled and the food was delicious. The servers worked very well as a team and took the time to have a few pleasant words, too.

Visited here last week and enjoyed a very nice pasta dish. Cocktails were good too. Good service. Eat here most months and it is consistently good.

We love Carluccio's but this was our most disappointing visit ever. A lot of my favourite pasta dishes aren't on the menu anymore which is a shame but obviously changes must be made. We were seated straight away but it took ages to get served drinks. For my starter I has Crab Macaroni. The pasta wasn't cooked properly and the... More

Love this restaurant. Service was excellent, nice ambience and great location. We sat upstairs and enjoyed the views over Covent Garden. Wide variety on menu and the food was fabulous, well presented and inexpensive.

Their grilled Sea bass and beetroot salad were great hits along with their fried calamari. Very nice environment as well.

dined here Friday evening. Had a long wait for order to be taken. One person ordered pizza margurita. When it came it was a soggy mess with very liquid amatory sauce and smothered in oil. Completely in-edible. When the waiter finally came to ask if everything was alright and he took a look at the dish we were ready to... More

Hi Thank you for your recent review, I'm really sorry to hear of the poor experience you received. It seems far away from the usual great food and service my team and myself are normally proud of. Perhaps you could email me on coventgarden@carluccios.com to discuss further. I look forward to hearing from you Kind Regards Ana Protheroe General Manager More

Had a very quick meal in what has been quite an enjoyable regular haunt in the past. Great to see a new menu and the atmosphere and service great as usual but the chef might need to check the tasting. The broccolini was bland and over cooked. Could have been amazing with a touch of salt and a dash of... More

Lunch for 2 adults in an atmospheric chain restaurant. Lots of children but looks like a "kid friendly" place. Unfortunately even at 12:05 on a Saturday lunchtime very busy. Staff rushed and food initially cold. New replacements came but 70 minutes too slow for pasta main meals gif for 2.
