Even though it was November it was nice enough to sit outside with an excellent coffee and watch the world go by. Great position on Bridge Street. Plenty of room inside of the weather is not so good and lots on the menu to tempt your appetite

50% of the food was cold, tasteless and served on very cold plates. The pasta and spinach side order must rank amongst some of the worst food served Europe. Perhaps Carluccio should stick to his mushrooms.

We went for breakfast this morning as a bit of a reminder of a recent trip to Venice and we really weren't disappointed. Breakfast was superb -- eggs, sausage, fried smoked pancetta, sautéed mushrooms and toasted Italian bread with tea and orange juice. Lovely. Being Mothers day the place was packed and service ended up being quite slow. The staff... More

I thought it was empty because of the time, sadly it turned out that it was empty because the food was rubbish. Had mushroom risotto, absolutely tasteless, was so disappointed. No wonder there were so many empty seats!

We have made several visits to Carluccios in both Chester and Cheshire Oaks and have always had good food, supported by good service. We consider eating there as good value for money

My wife loves this restaurant for brunch with the kids on a Sunday. (The kids are all grown up) The location is on Upper Bridge St so could not be more central in Chester. You always get a warm welcome and the "Breakfast Magnifico" is very good value with freshly cooked fare.
