When all you want is some posh Italian food that differs from the average pizza then avoid Carluccios at all costs. As a coeliac the idea of a gluten free menu sounded promising and I was very excited to go to this restaurant. However, the gluten free bread was miniscule for the price and merely a vessel for the rather boring food placed on top. Me and my mum shared an anti pasti which was £14.00 and a trio of bruschetta's which were £6.50. Both were pretty bland and lacking in the nicer things like cheese, olives, capers and pickled onions; instead they were covered in peppers and tomatoes and oh even more peppers. For these sort of prices you would expect a filling and flavorsome meal yet this was not the case.


However, despite the poor tasting food the service was very good and the waitresses were polite and attentive to my gluten free needs. Everything was quick and the restaurant was a nice environment to be in. It's a shame that the elegant restaurant is the highlight as when going out to eat one generally wants the food to be the star of the show rather than the decoration.


Overall this was a disappointing experience and I won't be going here again.
