This is a great place for a group with different dietary requirements. The menu is wide and caters for both children and adults as well as those requiring gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan options. The food is tasty and fresh.

Like most of these café restaurants the hard surface ceiling & floors make noise a problem but don't let this stop you from a good night out with friends. The service is fast & friendly & the food is good & BYO wine ( $5.00 corkage) is always a winner for me. Drink your preferred wine at half price. I... More

We have been coming to Carluccis for over 15 years. A great Italian restaurant with home cooking atmosphere. We sat outside, they have heaters for chilly evenings. There is a fantastic menu, we chose pasta. The staff are friendly and you feel like you're getting the authentic Italian experience. The food arrived very quickly, was absolutely delicious as always, and... More

We have been here twice recently for family celebrations. The food is good has lots of flavour , good modern Italian cuisine.

Only down is... More

If you want a quiet , dull, boring place to sit and eat then avoid this place! It's always happy and full of life here. At times the crowd noise can be high but its all about the atmosphere here, people come to eat, drink, laugh and talk here. Always a interesting crowd which includes couples, families, celebration parties and... More

Convenient for our family as it is a five minute walk to access. Indoor and outdoor service - ideal on those summer and balmy evenings. Great range of foods available with that Italian specialty if so desired. Licensed with good range of wines and spirits and foods. Can be a little noisy and crowded at times. Suggest strongly that you... More

Went you go to an Italian restaurant, you expect Italian pasta. Pasta isn't that hard to make so really it was disappointing. I think they need a better chef in the kitchen. With the wide number of choices in that local, I won't be back.

Visited with a group for a birthday dinner. Right from the moment we walked in the doors the staff interacted with us and kept us entertained all evening. We started some starters and most tried something from the special board and were very happy with their selections. Will visit agaain
