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.

Don't go on a Saturday night out. Totally ignored once set at table, and even then having booked in advance table was only ready 20 minutes late. Had telephoned in advance to confirm booking and food available for a birthday outing before theatre visit, The tables are crammed together, the noise of chattering ear splitting, had to stop a waitress...

I recently visited this Carluccios in Covent Garden for a night out to catch up with some friends and we had a great time.

We were in London for my Mum's birthday to see Mamma Mia. We had lunch at Carluccios before we watched the show. What a lovely restaurant.

We had the fixed menu meal. The lentil soup, linguine and risotto were excellent and very filling. The house wine, very drinkable. We had booked in advance and stated that we only had an hour. We arrived 10 mins early and the Bookings Checker made quite a fuss about us arriving early but there were plenty of tables empty. The... More

Lovely afternoon. Pleasant meal at Carluccio's. Food generally was good although one dish came out cold but it was taken off our bill. But I definitely have to mention the waitress who looked after us as she made the experience a delight. We were totally looked after, whilst being left to chat and dawdle before ordering. She made certain we... More

While visiting friends in London we are informed that we would be eating at Carluccio's in Covent Garden which, to be honest, worried me a little as I expected to have to be on my best behaviour + thought I wouldn't have a good time - but I was completely wrong!!!!!!
