I have had some wonderful meals here and some awful ones, but the last couple of time s here have made me want to come back, so when a quiet day came along and I was hungry at lunch time I went along alone. I had hear there was a special on the Veal TBones, and I was right so I plumped for that along with a glass of their Abruzzo.

The Veal was good, but a little over cooked, still it was moist and tender and had good flavour, though the garnish/dressing on the veal was a little vinegary. The roasted potatoes were very moist and good. I enjoyed the lunch, and my coffee, and was astonished at the value for money.

This is our top place to take our grandchildren out to eat in Oxford. The children's menu gives them an appealing and satisfying meal while there's plenty to please adults too. Our waiter this time was Milan who was particularly pleasant and excellent with the children.

My girlfriend and I visited Carluccios during our trip to London for our Anniversary. We found this restaurant by pure mistake and it was the best mistake of our life. We were seated within 5 minutes of a very busy lunch period. We were seen to quick by the friendliest waiter. I got the Mushroom risotto with chicken and my girlfriend got the Penne Giardiniera!

The food was absolutely incredible, everything was cooked to perfection and the waiter checked on us and had a good laugh with each other throughout. He then recommended the chocolate cake to us and it was beautiful! He then asked us about our trip and suggested some nice places for us to visit! We left him a nice tip which is something we don't do often but he was so incredible and made us feel really welcome!

We have since found out that there are quite a few of these restaurants and I am so happy there are 2 in Dublin. We have for sure found our new date night spot! Thanks guys for an incredible meal!

Ps. The toilets are quite quaint and I love the old style fashion of it!

I ordered the risotto, what came was a congealed lump of rice. It looked bad and tasted the same. Ate some but left most. Very disappointing.
