Have not visited a Carluccios for several years, so not sure what to expect but certainly not disappointed. Good friendly level of service, food served quickly and presented well and our mains were delightful with a couple of drinks change from £50 for two courses this together with a fun and lively atmosphere you really cannot go wrong with this...

A very short wait for table, were seated and greeted and given the menus. Food was quick to come and it was all delicious at very good prices. The overall service was very good, atmosphere was good and the toilets were clean. Well done Carluccio's

Busy place opposite s ken tube. Came here after the natural history museum with child in tow. Warmly welcomed inside and then it all went south. Took an eternity for someone to bother to come over and take our order. Even longer for them to realise that they had forgotten my main and the child's starter before being prompted. After... More

Good location, it's very close to the station and bus stops. Decent decor and atmosphere. I had a salad and lemonade. Both were good. However, the salad was £5 and it was tiny (but it was a side apparently). Also, I think it needed more balsamic vinegar, and even though each table had olive oil, there was no vinegar. The... More

This is another venture to another week visiting London's favourite couple / family friendly restaurants. We booked a table couple days prior to having our lunch date, and its a good thing we did as we would have been waiting until Christmas if we were one of the walk-ins. Regardless of booking the table, we still had to wait for... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
